My Passport Studio WDBAAE

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Western Digital designed and preformats the My Passport Studio for use with Macs; however, it works well as a portable external storage solution for Windows and OS X, as long as USB 2.0 is your connection of choice.
  • Cons: The My Passport Studio doesn't support USB 3.0 and its FireWire performance could be faster. Its backup software doesn't allow for much customization, and its cost per gigabyte is relatively high.

WD My Passport 2TB Review

maximum pc
29 April 2013
  • Summary: Overall, there’s a lot to like about the WD drive, but we’re dinging it pretty hard for having flaky backup software. The password-protection function is nice, but our favorite two things about it are that it’s the biggest USB drive available, and of these three, it’s also the fastest.
  • Pros: Huge capacity; great speed; full-featured software package
  • Cons: Backup software is not reliable or good for advanced users; can’t make backup images

Western Digital My Passport 500GB review

APC
10 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Not as sleek as the new Edge series the My Passport (formerly known as My Passport Essential) isn’t without considerable appeal. Sure it’s a little chunkier than the Verbatim Mobile Hard Drive and the design’s quite bland but it’s what inside that counts right? And like all WD drives it makes a good case for itself with the supplied SmartWare software used for drive security and backup.
  • Pros: Excellent software.
  • Cons: Crummy performance.

  • Conclusion: At that price, the WD My Passport for Mac 1TB USB3 becomes a product that we highly recommend. It’s small in size and pretty zippy in speed. What’s not to like!
