WD Released updated variants of the 1TB and 2TB My Passport for MAC. (For the 2TB The old variant was Model WDBZYL0020BSL-NESN and new variant is Model WDBCGL0020BSL-NESN)I researched in differences, so here is what I came up with.. The major differences I see on the side from the model changing is the color and a new 3TB variant. While the last generation of this was all silver with a black edge, this newer model is all black with a silver edge. The New 3TB variant ( model WDBCGL0030BSL-NESN ) is slated for release this summer.

For about the last two years, I have been using a WD My Passport Studio with both USB and FireWire connections, and it was working great. When my company provided me with a My Passport for Mac, but, I appreciated the enhancements in size and weight. No wonder, then, that I was anticipating good things from this 3rd iteration of one of my favorite storage devices. To start, since I carry this hard disk around with me every day, size and weight are considerations. The new My Passport for Mac is observably smaller and lighter:WD My Passport Studio: 5 x 3 1/2 x 5/8, 10. 9 oz. (314 g)WD My Passport for Mac: 4 3/8 x 3 1/4 x 5/8, 8. 9 oz. (253g)NEW WD My Passport for Mac: 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 x 3/8, 6. 3 oz. (179 g)I may make do with a flash drive, if I had to, however those tend to get lost and none of them can store a terabyte’s worth of data like the My Passport. Another benefit of My Passport is it doesn’t require formatting, so it’s prepared to use with your Mac computer right out of the box. Its one step security feature lets you to add a password for extra peace of mind. WD also gives some useful utilities, as well as a feature that lets you to reformat the complete hard disk. As for storage, as I said, it is a full terabyte, so I don t have complaints there. For usability, I did a simple benchmark test of copying a 2+GB folder, in both directions, and this new My Passport proved fastest of all three drives. Copy times for Mac to hard disk and hard disk back to Mac were:WD My Passport Studio (with USB): 1:48/1:15WD My Passport for Mac: 1:46/1:26NEW WD My Passport for Mac: 1:31/1:15So just, this disk is smaller, lighter, and faster than variants that have come before it, which are variants that I was more than happy with. If these Mac storage solutions just keep to get better, then I’ll just keep on giving them five stars, like I’m with this one.



It is really amazing how small external hard drives have gotten. Now, it is hard to imagine there is any way they’d be able to decrease the size more without shrinking the real hard drive inside. This compact and sleep package holds a 1Tb laptop drive and features a USB 3. 0 interface. The drive is small enough to EASILY store in your pocket. Not that anybody could usually do that, however that assists give you a sense of the size (real dimension are about 4. 25"x 3. 25" x 1/2"). Also to the compact size, another nice feature of this drive is that’s completely bus powered. That means you connect the included USB cable to a regular USB port on your PC and you are done. No power brick. And it does not use two USB ports (the way some externals do). Note that the included USB cable is pretty short–about 1. 5 feet. That is enough to sit beside your laptop or PC, however only just. You could replace the included USB cable with your,. This drive comes pre-formatted for a Mac, and if you have a Mac, just connect it and away you go. If you’re using a PC, you will have to reformat the drive. I use a PC, so I required to do this. It is relative easy to do if you are comfy with following directions. (Google "reformat hard drive from Mac to PC" ). So then the question is: How well does this drive perform? nicely, in fact. Using the business standard CrystalDiskMark to measure performace on a dedicated USB 3. 0 connection, I got read and write speeds for big files of about 114 MB/s, which is good, particularly for a small factor laptop type (2. 5") hard drive. (See screenshot attached). On a USB 2.
