How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Western Digital My Passport Studio is a quick and affordable way to add up to a terabyte of storage to your Mac, thanks to its fast FireWire 800 port (compatible with all current Macs other than the MacBook Air). If you're not a Mac user, you can reformat it and it will work with your PC's USB connection, but if you've got a newer computer equipped with a fast USB 3.0 port, you should hold out for a drive that supports it.
