Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not compatible After waiting three weeks for this item on back order I was very disappointed to find that this device was totally incompatible with my iMac 4K. This problem needs to be addressed by JL.It should not be left to the purchaser to find out. Have ordered a WD My Passport for Mac to try again. 12 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pocket Dynamo It is not much bigger than a credit card, yet it manages to pack in 1tb of space. It is already formatted for mac os x, so all you need to do is plug and play. So far no problems, the only slight niggle is that it does not have an off or on switch, but nevertheless has a beautiful brushed steel finish. After a few weeks use I can only recommend it. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smart, slim and does the job. Bought to replace a broken one. Plugged it in, easy to set the computer and it now does all my backup without a problem. Is very quiet and doesn't even get warm. Looks stylish and slim. Perfect. 02 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact and neat Needed a spare back up drive. This is compact, quiet and has no background noise. There is the option to set a password too. Highly recommended! 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple effective portable drive This drive does what it says without any fuss Used with a MacBook Pro and Mavericks OS. Worked first time out of the box with no problems. Detected by my MacBook Pro and was able to read and write data in seconds. Surprised at the speed (quick) in comparison to other mobile drives I have. USB connectors are slim and fit easily alongside other connectors on the MackBook. No problems so far been working for 2 months and used most days. 07 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by so far so good Just transferred 10GB in 2 minutes!!! So far, I highly recommended this product :) 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Device! I just transferred 11GB in 2 minutes, and 52GB in 9 minutes from a MacBook Air!!!! Can't be happier with this product as it is super fast and easy to use. Typically buy electronics off Amazon and have left a review on their site. However, I will look to John Lewis in future as product was cheaper and delivered for free next day to my nearest Waitrose - plus John Lewis have added a 2 year warranty on top! 18 November 2014
