I just bought this drive locally at our favorite blue box merchant. After looking at this My Book For Mac andthe standard one in store, I have noticed the Mac variant will include a 3 year warranty andthe standard My Book’s 2 year. Otherwise both drives appeared the same. Honestly, I have owned many hard drives over the years and had to use the warranty many times to replace failing drives. To me the extra $10 & 34;Mac-Tax& 34; is worth it for the expanded year warranty. Also I am sure older SKU My Book drives may include the 3 year warranty, however after looking at the boxes in person, it is clear the only difference besides the format is your nearly certain to get the longer warranty with this product.

TIP: you may be able to USE ANY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE WITH A MAC AND do not NEED A “MAC well-matched” DRIVE. Amazon has some cheaper drives if you look around. Make sure to purchase the biggest drive you may be able to pay for as at some point you’ll need/want it. Make sure to check your price of the different sizes some are so close as to rationalize the up charge in price. If you are a Mac user setting up or erasing this hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps. I never use software that comes with hard drives I just clean them & use Time Machine. 1. Plug in the hard drive2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder3. Next choose the newly plugged in a hard 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. If you want your hard drive to work with your Mac for doing Time Machine backups (which I greatly recommend) decide Mac OS expanded. On occasion it is good to make two partitions and one using “MS-DOS fat” if you may be transferring files to and from a Windows machine. The reason is Windows machines and Max can read and write to the “MS-DOS fat” format but your files will have to be under 4 GB each as that is the maximum file size it can hold. 6. Then click apply and your Mac will create all the partitions you wanted and you are good to go.

I remember back in the 90s if you put “dot com” in your business name you were guaranteed lots of venture capital. This drive kind of reminds me of that.. It says “Mac” on it so Mac holders will flock to it. :)To be clear, the “Mac” designator mentions the format of the drive (Mac OS Journaled) and management software included on the drive, not the hardware itself. The drive will surely work on any computer, with the proviso being that you could have to format it for a Windows machine (so lose the management software). But more on that in a minute. This is a great drive, built well and is quite speedy. I used this to stream audio and video (1080p) in my interior network via iTunes and Home Share, and it worked like crazy. Just a couple of notes on some special situation:-There have been some cases of WD My Book drives losing data if attached throughout an upgrade from Mountain Lion to Mavericks. From what I can tell, this has to do with the management software and nothing to do with the drive itself. To make sure, I tried this on MBPs running both Mountain Lion and Mavericks and it worked just good. I think the error has something to do with the real OS upgrade procedure only joint with the use of the management software. For regular handling on a machine that already has Mavericks installed I had no issues whatsoever. So, I propose disconnecting the drive before upgrading the OS.. But if you already have Mavericks, you may want to be OK. I haven’t had any issue with this drive on either Mountain Lion or Mavericks. -That said, I have a strong bias against external drive management software to start with. My philosophy is to treat any new external drive as a brick.
