AmazonBasics Hard Black Carrying Case for My Passp&hellip by AmazonBasics
This attractive little hard canvas protective case has a zipper. It opens into two attached halves: on the left is a net compartment to hold the USB cord; on the right is a thick elastic band to hold the My Passport Essential for Mac, which fits perfectly into it like an old-fashioned cigarette case (like the one my father carried!). Zip it up and tuck it into a drawer until your Laptop nags you to take your 'Passport' out and, yet again, update your Time Machine!

An excellent product!

I was particularly thrilled with the sharpness of the transfer; the phantasmagoric images blazed in jewel tones as I played this DVD on the fancy-shmancy Blu-Ray player that my son had given me for Christmas.

Giulietta Massina's performance is both restrained and effortless. With a mere glance of her eyes, she conveys a… Read more
