I much prefer the Airport Express from Apple to these cheap and nasty drives without networking capabilities.

I prefer Fish and Chips to these cheap and nasty drives without salt and vinegar capabilities.

Product Description

My Passport offers high capacity in a sleek portable drive. It features ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity; automatic, backup software; and password protection and hardware encryption to help protect your files from unauthorized use with plenty of room to store all your files.

Ultra-fast transfer rates – When connected to a USB 3.0 port My Passport lets you access and save files in blazing speed. Reduce transfer time by up to 3 times when compared to USB 2.0 transfer rates. (Performance may vary based on user’s hardware and system configuration.)

USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatibility – With this single drive you get compatibility with your USB 2.0 devices today and the ultra-fast speed of USB 3.0 when you’re ready to step up to the next generation.

High capacity, small design – Offering high capacity in a compact drive, My Passport is the ideal companion for anyone with lots of videos, photos, music, and files that they want to help protect and take on the road.

Automatic, continuous backup software – You’re in control of your backup. Install all the features, select just the components you need, or if you prefer, choose not to use the software at all. The software works quietly in the background to help protect your data using minimal PC resources. Whenever you add or change a file, it’s instantly backed up.

WD Security – WD Security utility allows you to set password protection and hardware encryption for your drive to help protect your files from unauthorized use or access.

WD Drive Utilities – Register your drive, set drive timer, run diagnostics and more using WD Drive Utilities.

USB-powered – Powered directly from the USB port on your PC. No separate power supply is needed.

WD quality inside and out – We know your data is important to you. So we build the drive inside to our demanding requirements for durability, shock tolerance, and long-term reliability. Then, we protect the drive with a durable enclosure designed for beauty and protection.

It is the cheapest it has ever been (at Amazon.co.uk) today (& the cheapest of all the various colours available; Black, Red, Blue):

I have both a 120GB & a 250GB "My Passport" drive already. I have had no issues with either of these two products. One of these units was carried in a backpack to/from a place of work for over 2 years. It never exhibited any signs of failure.

I can also plug the drives into the USB drive on my wireless router for "network capabilities".

What has been your experience with the "My Passport" range?

This a portable external HDD, Airport Express is wireless network hub. You should have just told us you much prefer Apple's to Orange's since it would have been just as irrelevant to the item listed.

A little common sense would say this person obviously means the Time Capsule from Apple. On topic though I use one of these as the time machine backup for my iMac, it has been on since I bought it as it's permanently connected, no issues and its a nice quiet drive.

Is this the one formatted for mac, or is it just the same colour?
Betabet#20
Question from a totally clueless non-techy person - I need to save thousands of digital photos that I have saved on my laptop (as I think my laptop is going to pack up soon and I don't want to lose them) so is the kind of thing I should be using? Probably about 5 thousand photos in total. And also is it quite straighforward to copy them? Thanks.
