I always keep my reviews plain and simple: straight to what you need to know.

Pros:

- Small like a travel passport.
- Very lightweight.
- Ability to right-click and delete the included WD Smartware files (Finally!).

Cons:

- Glossy enclosure prone to scratching and dust sticking to it.
- Shows the "New hardware found" notification under Windows XP everytime you plug it (Western Digital... Sigh!). No notification under Windows 7.

Western Digital makes fantastic products and this 'My Passport' is no different. It's silent, small, and works seamlessly with my Mac. Couldn't be easier to use and is a pleasure when traveling and you need additional capacity to store files.

This is a great buy for a good price! Most stores sell 1Tb hard drives like this for about $180-$200.
It's small and lightweight, easy for travel.
It reads fast on my mac, but you will have to find a program that allows you to read and write to hard drives like this since they are typically for Windows systems.
I recommend buying a good case for this since it can be prone to breaking if dropped hard or often. I'm prone to dropping things so I have a good case to protect this in order not to lose any of my data.

I bought this to hook it up to my WDTV. When I "get" movies I add them to my hard drive wirelessly through my WDTV which is connected to my router. Excellent setup!

Anyways, i'm always paranoid my hard drives will crash so I back-up all my precious items (photo's, home movies, etc) on 3 different drives - until I invest in a Drobo type device. Anyways, this one is used the most and is hooked up to my TV and on most of the time. So far, it's worked perfectly with no issues.

Keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way - a bit paranoid!

It's a compact and light external drive for backing up your data. The only problem is it's a bit noisy.

I can remember when I was impressed by a 356 MB hard drive on my new computer. (Remember those days?) Now here's this back-up external drive that is a terabyte, something that not so many years ago was in the domain only of supercomputers that took up whole rooms. The really impressive thing is that this is such a nice compact little drive, not much bigger than a deck of playing cards. I've used other drives for back up and have always avoided the back up software that came with some of them, fearing it would get in the way and slow things down when I'm working or that it would take too much time to figure out what to back up and how often to do so. As a result, I often forget to back things up, which could be a disaster if I ever had a hard drive failure.

Now the nice thing about a large external drive such as this one is that it has tons of space and I can just back up everything and keep several copies. The software that comes on the drive installs in minutes and checks for updates for both software and firmware. It gives you a choice of what to back up and the choice of pausing backups when you're working, so you don't have to worry about it getting in your way when you're doing something else. It was simple to enter password protection and comes with a manual on the drive that's easy to understand, as manuals go. You can also choose how many backups to keep at a time and where you'd like those stored. The settings are simple to set up, even partitioning the drive if you decide to do so.

I've used it for a few weeks now and hardly notice it being there. It just does its thing in the background and I can check the backups so I know they're there.

Il vaut son prix. Il est beau, petit et léger.
La capacité de stockage ne pourra pas satisfaire ceux qui ont de grandes bibliothèques de film à sauvegarder... mais suffira amplement aux autres qui veulent stocker des photos personnelles par exemple.
Acheté depuis 6 mois, j'en suis toujours pleinement satisfait.
