Make sure to check the prices of the different sizes due to time of writing this review the 1 TB hard drive was only five dollars more than the 500 GB variant. Doubling your space for only five dollars is a no-brainer. As generally I recommend to get the biggest hard drive you may be able to pay for because at some point you want/need more space. This is an “movable” hard drive meaning all it needs is a USB plug into your computer to move the data and get power from. That means you do not have to plug in an AC adapter to your wall socket. I favor these hard drives over the kind that require an AC adapter every time. This will also work with USB 2. 0 adapters the speeds for 2. 0 transfers are fast enough for most users at about a gigabyte of data every 30 to 40 seconds. At the time of writing this review to terabyte drives or the highest capacity could find for a movable hard drive. If you want to get a 3 or 4TB hard drive they are the kind that require a wall AC adapter. This hard drive is Mac well-matched just follow the steps below to format the hard drive for your Mac. If you are a Mac user setting up or erasing this drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps. 1. Plug in the the drive2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder3. Next choose the newly plugged in a drive and on the right-hand side you may want to see partition click on that. 4. Then inside that screen on the partition layout drop-down decide how many partitions you’d want to set up. I usually go with one partition and just use folders to manage my files. 5. Then on the right-hand side you may be able to name the partitions and choose the format.

Works prefectly on my Xbox One, the difference between this and the wd passport is that with the passport your paying an extra fee for the wd backup software. In other words, if you’re considering a hd for your xbox one, this is the one .

I ordered this hard drive to start a digital group of Wii U games and it works well for that function. The drive was not recognized with the included USB cable and obliged a Y-cable to be formatted and used. It has a tendency to go to sleep when not used for some minutes, as when using Netflix or Wii mode, however this is not a problem throughout gameplay, where the drive is actively read and written to. I calculated the read speed on PC at about 80mb/s (sequential) when using USB 3. 0. Using the same USB 2. 0 Y-cable connection Wii U uses, the speed dropped to 34mb/s for a sequential read and 23mb/s for a random read, both of which are faster than the 22. 5mb/s speed of Wii U discs. In-game, I saw an average reduction in loading times of 6 seconds for Mariokart 8 tracks and 1-2 seconds for Pikmin 3 trials (there was no change in the initial game boot time in either case). Overall, the drive is fast and performs better than using a disc, however it does read gradually at system startup, which decreases the usefulness of Wii U’s “fast start” feature. It is also not as fast as the Wii U’s interior flash memory, which loaded Bit Trip Runner 2 and Nano Assault Neo levels about 3-4 seconds faster (but that is to be projected from a SSD). It is a shame that the full USB 3. 0 speed potential of HDDs can not be utilized on Wii U, however this drive still loads faster than an optical disc and works reliably. On the side from the sluggish performance at boot-up, I am happy with this drive.
