Works Well with New iMac

A. Hudson, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: Purchased the device for 'Time Machine' and it works very fine...no formatting required just plug and play. Nice WD, thanks. Although, the device does NOT come with a 'Lightning Bolt' cable...just a USB 3.0 connector.

Great Product. Not so great Product Housing.

JinJa, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: The drive works wonderfully; however, the plastic housing that it comes in couldn't be any more cheap. I doubt it would survive a fall. Luckily I bought it as a backup and it won't be leaving my desk very often.

Weird experience setting up

Gabriel, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: For some reason, it had some connectivity issues out of the box - my macbook pro 13" just wouldn't recognize it, or it would appear for brief moments and disappear. However, when I finally got it connected and went through the setup/installations, it worked perfectly and still is as of now. It's cheap and functional.

Broke after a month

selikmel, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Worked fine during a month. Suddenly, it stops reading my files. The drive appear on my desktop (MacBook Air) and so do the folders inside. But when I try to access the content of the folder, the drive crash (light constantly flashing, impossible to read anything or even eject the drive without restarting the computer). It never felt, was always in a protective case and was never unplugged without proper ejection. Disappointed.

I think my WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Drive committed suicide

M. West, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: The same day my new 3 TB drive is due to be delivered (I need more storage) my WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable External Hard Drive suddenly stopped working this morning. Coincidence? I think not. This 1 TB drive stopped working after only six months and I've now lost my Mac TimeMachine backup, and I've had other WD drives die in less than a year too. I'm not impressed with the reliability of WD drives...

Two strikes and out

James R. Starnes, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: Over a year ago I purchased a Western Digital "My Passport for Mac" external drive to back up my files (using Time Machine). In January 2013, it became corrupt, and because my hard drive was also having serious issues, I lost virtually everything on my iMac. I purchased another WD My Passport for Mac (1TB) drive last February (2013), and it worked fine (in conjunction with my new iMac) ...
