Looks great, it maintains the Apple aesthetic of the silver and black. Speed is a little slow, but it is great if you want it for something simple, and won't be using it every day. Perfect for casual users that just need something to store your stuff on.

    I have had a WD 1TB My Passport used as a backup drive on a Windows 7 PC for over a year. When I switched to an iMac in early 2014 I have had a WD 1TB My Passport used as a backup drive on a Windows 7 PC for over a year. When I switched to an iMac in early 2014, I just plugged it into the iMac, let Time Machine do its thing to format the drive for the Mac OS X, and it has been working flawlessly for the past 6 months on the iMac. It is fast, quiet, and has been reliable to date. I do check Time Machine every now and then to verify that it is doing successful backups and have not seen any issues at all.

    I have potable hard drives that are 10 years old and still functioning flawlessly. I used this as my Time Machine back up drive. I I have potable hard drives that are 10 years old and still functioning flawlessly. I used this as my Time Machine back up drive. I'm afraid I've lost a lot of important data on this drive. Please do not buy this. You have been warned.
