5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and light hard drive at a very good price!!, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WD 2TB My Passport Slim Portable Storage (Accessory)
I have recently bought this hard drive and I should say it has been excellent. I did plenty of research before committing to it, this included checking out USB 2.0 , USB3.0, Firewire 800 and Thunderbolt connections.

I must admit that this hard drive is fast but is not as fast as the USB3.0 cable connection should be, this is given by the fact that the unit is a spinning hard drive at 5400 rpm and that limits the speed.

Same for some of the LaCie hard drives that comes with a Thunderbolt connection but with a spinning hard drive (many cases 5400 RPM) . They essentially have the same speed regardless the cable connection.

In my case, I took the plunge on this one given the fact of the price, the brand (has never got problems with WD) and also the size. I'm using it more as a back up for my videos but I must admit that you can use it as a working drive in FCPX.

If you seriously wanted higher read / write speeds then you must consider buying a solid state drive (SSD) with thunderbolt connection. Although, speeds are really high then the comfort comes at a price because is far more expensive and you get less disk memory. Please bear in mind that thunderbolt speeds are still higher than what SSDs can offer, but is the faster you can currently get as I understand.
