Excellent portable hard drive,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WD My Passport Essential 500 GB Midnight Black Portable Hard Drive (USB 3.0/2.0) (Electronics)
This is a brilliant portable hard drive. It's tiny (fits in my pocket), weighs nothing, makes very little noise, doesn't get too hot and is very fast.
I currently use it mainly with OSX (10.7.2) but occasionally use it with Windows (Vista & 7) so have formatted it as exFAT which means I can read/write on both operating systems without any additional software and it works without a hitch.
Unlike some other external hard drives, there was no software to install to use the drive, it truly was a case of plug-n-play which is quite refreshing!
