General WD WDBEZW0020BBA-NESN description
My Passport thin is the ideal friend for your Ultrabook or another thin notebook. Thin enough to fit in your briefcase, pocket or purse, it is large enough to carry all your digital content.

Recent reviews:

PROS:++ Small, calm. Looks pretty tough (see CONS below, although). ++ Fast on USB 3. 0, backwards-well-matched with 2. 0 ports. ++ No performance or backup issues (I never use fitted backup software)++ Drag n’ drop works good for copying files (I use TeraCopy usually, although). ++ Recognized quickly by Windows 7, works OK with Win 7 backups. ++ Only about $15-20 more than the all-plastic case variants (but bottom of this one is plastic, not aluminum )++ Small activity light, nice to have. ++ Powered by USB cable (no extra power supply needed). ++ 3-yr warranty, which is becoming rare with hard drives. CONS:– misleading DESCRIPTION (MINUS 2 STARS): This isn’t an all-aluminum enclosure. The bottom is black plastic (and flat, with no feet/risers/nubs). If you want all 4 sides aluminum, get the "WD My Passport thin 2TB movable Metal External Hard Drive USB 3. 0 with Auto Backup" instead. — For the love of God, stop using these less-common USB end connectors. Also, the cable is less than 20" long. (longer substitute cables are available, attempt AmazonBasics OR Cable Matters brand USB 3. 0 Type A to Micro-B Cable)NEUTRAL: No on/off switch (most 2. 5" backup drives do not have one); I wonder about longevity of the USB port and cord with lots of plugging and unplugging. No observable screws or observable way to disassemble to get at drive inside (which could void your warranty). Still, I could get it separately if I totally had to. you may be able to now get a (bigger form factor) 4 TB for $30 more from Toshiba (Canvio). I have 2 Canvios with 3-yr warranties, and they have been great (but many reviewers seem to have problems with Canvios).



Beautiful drive that’s fast and perfect for backing up my main hard drive weekly – I may have bought the cheaper drive but this one is "my precious" P. S. I didn’t install or use the accompanying WD software on the drive so I don t have idea how it works. I just connected it to a USB 3. 0 port and scheduled a Win7 regular backup – worked like a charm..



Ok, this works with a Mac but you may want to know that it comes formatted for Windows which means when you plug it into your Mac that it’ll show up as read only.. Which is annoying. It is pretty easily remedied, although. You go into Disk Utilities and under Partition you have to create ‘1 Partition’ and be sure your alternatives (the button in there) are set to the top choice (GUID, disk for Mac). The format is MAC OS expanded journaled. When you click ‘Apply’ this will erase all your data if you already have stuff on there from a windows machine. If the volume will not unmount, you have to go to the command line and use diskutil to make it unmount. You may have to use the force choice (I had to). Then you go back to Disk Utilities and create the partition. Anyway, I am not going into go into that part in detail because if you are comfy at the command line then you know how to google till you find the right answer (it should come up now if you google the error message from Disk Utilities). If you are not comfy enough to do that and do not know what a partition on a hard drive is, do yourself a favor and call a mac nerd. Do not risk accidentally reformatting something you did not mean to or screwing up this drive. Like others have said, it is nice and fast. I am used to SSDs now and wondered if I’d feel the speed difference but so far, so good. In all, if you are pretty competent and hardware stuff, to get this HD prepared for a mac should only take about 3 minutes.
