Yet another fantastic hard drive by Western Digital - this is the second that I have. Like the previous reviewer said, just plug and play and it's ready to go. One other point of note is that it is USB 3.0 (and backwards compatable with USB 2). Essentially, this just means that for computers with USB 3.0 slots, your data transfer speed will be a lot faster. I have two of these for different reasons - transferring files from home (mac) to work (windows) and vice versa. No issues with differences in operating system. The second reason is to use it to back up files using Time Machine on the Mac. For both of these functions, the drive is silent and works perfectly. I have no hesitations for recommending this for both Windows and Mac users, with speed, reliability and silence just three of the many reasons to pick this as one of the best portable hard drives you can buy.

WD My Passport has proved it's capability and reliability to me over the past 3 years and have just purchased this fourth one, each time I check out the opposition reviews and each time opt for another of these very capable, well put together and aesthetically pleasing units. Having USB 3 with USB 2 capability is another plus. There are cheaper drives available from other reputable manufacturers but amazon always have a reduced price available somewhere within the WD My passport range ie colour, GB etc...I have 3 x 500 GB and a 1 TB version and all are currently without adverse issue. I always recommend to friends who are considering purchasing a new drive. Quiet, doesn't get too warm and just a quality product from a well respected leader in these devices.

It's compact and works well.
Seems fast and no issues so far.

But the usb connection on the unit feels extremely weak and flimsy.
And the flashing light on it is super bright, I had to cover it in tape because it was too bright at night. Both distracting during work and when I went to sleep.

Bought this 4 years ago - come back to review cus im that petty.

I used it to back up a load of files and stored it safely away. I've just gone back to retrieve the files and it's totally dead and won't be revived by any wires/disk utility. Thanks WD. do not buy
