Summary: I have a few of these and they have, as of yet, never failed me (HDs all fail, so back up the back ups no matter what you buy). Most importantly this is the ONLY EXTERNAL DRIVE IN THE UNIVERSE (other than solid state) THAT IS QUIET! Is that important to you? It sure is to me.
Summary: Great little hard drive. Small, portable, and if memory serves, it comes with at least one firewire 800 and a usb 3.0 cord. It's sturdy and reliable, like most Western Digital products. It's never failed to mount, and I've used it on macs with several different operating systems.

Summary: I love these drives! I currently have 4 of the 2TB WD My Passport Studio Firewire drives, and one of the same drive at 1TB. Two of these drives have been in continuous operation for about 2 years, and have remained silent, reliable, and problem free during that time.
Summary: The easiest and best external HD I have owned. The FireWire 800 cable allows for a quick Time Machine backup. Easy to use, even though I had to download the drivers from the WD site - http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?
