Summary: I purchased this product because I am using an older computer and when I took it for service I was told it could "die" at any moment!! I needed to back up the files! I have been very pleased with the Passport! (The computer is still working just fine!)
Summary: It's sturdy, small, looks sharp and has more room than any one average person needs. I'll be able to backup nearly everything I own for a long time on this thing, and doesn't take up room nor am I concerned about it breaking, as it appears very built.
Summary: I've used backup hard drives from many companies now, such as Apple, Seagate, and Western Digital, but I think this My Passport is the best one I've used. It works perfectly for my Time Machine configuration, is ready to go out of the box, is password protected, and has plenty of storage.
Summary: I bought this product in a desperate state fearing my computer didn't have a lot of life left in her and I was afraid I hand't done enough research. But now that it has been a few months, I can say this was a great purchase. Highly recommend it.
Summary: I have been using this hard drive for a few months now, and it was worked perfectly. I have re-formatted it several times with no issues as well. I have a 2012 15" retina macbook pro base model, which only includes 256 GB of flash storage, so this little upgrade is nice.
Summary: As a video editor, it is not uncommon for a single project to take a substantial amount of your hard drive. The need to order this drive arose when I saw the remaining disk space on my computer hit the single digits.
Summary: My MacBook Pro was showing symptoms of dying, screen going black, overheating etc. signs of a hard drive crash. My repair guy recommended the Passport external drive to back up my files before I lost everything in the final crash.
