Thank you WD

We go camping a lot during the Summer, so I like to take movies to watch at night or sometimes on a rainy day. However my Macbook only has 256GB of space and it's quite filled with all sorts of stuff. So I was constantly adding/removing/adding/removing movies each camping trip. I was doing this so much I was forgetting what movies I actually removed and sometimes want to go a watch it and it's not there. So for my birthday my parents bought me amazing product. I know there is a Mac version of this hard drive, but paying extra is not needed when all you have to do is simply format the drive. Takes only a few seconds to do so. Transferring videos to this hard drive is quick and painless and I mean very quick. I now have 12 movies, several dozen TV shows/TV movies, a bunch of YouTube videos and I still have 2.95GB FREE. The only thing that it is SLIGHTLY bulkier then I first thought it was going to be. But that's nothing.

Does what it says

Just bought one. Hooked it up to my desktop, no issues. Speed is decent. Only thing about it is it feels cheaply made. Even the cable doesn't fit the drive snugly.

Great little drive

Unwilling to pay the "Mac tax" for the same drive, I picked this one up, reformatted for Mac and could not be happier. Presently using it with my Mac Pro thus USB 2 but speeds are acceptable for me but with USB 3 I'm set for future Macs. Oh, in case you're wondering, USB 2 ports have enough juice to power the drive using the included cable only. Before you reformat, save the included Mac utilities to your computer though you can still download them from WD's site.

Great product!

Price vs quality, this is one of the best products on the market. Very quiet and smaller than expected.
