This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: Pre-formatted NTFS. Plug it into a PC and it works. Good amount of storage. Includes backup and security software.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The reason for this review is to fix incorrect information given by other reviewers. This does NOT come with a proprietary cable. It's a standard USB 3.0 cable. The one from my old Seagate fits perfectly. This drive is pre-formatted with NTFS. If you want to use it on something other than a PC, you need to format it. It says on the box "Requires reformatting for Mac OS X." If you want it compatible with everything format it with ExFAT.

3 out of 5 eggsWD MyPassport Ultra 2TB

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: Inexpensive
Simple

Cons: Unreliable
proprietary connection cable
short connection cable

Other Thoughts: I own a bunch of these drives, this is the only one that has given me trouble. I got them cause they don't need an external power source and they are pretty cheap. Had intermittent I/O errors for a couple months, it finally died on me today. I already ordered the same drive, so you know I'm generally satisfied with them. I just wish the cord was longer really... and that it didn't die within one year from purchase date :)

1 out of 5 eggsMy Passport Ultra

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: I've used many WD products and never had a problem until now

Cons: I purchased this unit to save my most important files. I transferred everything to the drive through a disk utility on my MAC. One day the files were not there anymore. The thing completely annihilated my files. Whats worse is how much I spent on it and that I only used it a few months. Now it's been almost a year and not only did it kill my files, but I cannot get it returned.

Other Thoughts: I used a disk utility to recover some of the missing files, but was not able to recover the faulty system.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk (x2)

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: None. Fails at what's it supposed to do.

Cons: Can't list any pros when the drives fail and their sole purpose is to backup and store data. We started buying these at my tech company for work. One drive full of sensitive data failed within 6 months (HDD failure, clicking) and a 2nd drive failed in just about a year (logic board died.) WD is making garbage products now. Encryption prevents you from just swapping in another board to recover your data. Board interface is USB 3.0 only, so you can't remove the drive and plug into a SATA dock / port either if you're having issues.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time. Buy a good, reputable bare drive and put it in it's own external enclosure. If I could, I'd leave multiple negative eggs for this product.

1 out of 5 eggsWas good when it worked

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: small, compact, secure with password protection

Cons: It quit working after 5 months. It works on my hubby's computer but my computer won't even recognize that it's there. Too bad, was a nice little backup and data keeper until it quit.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Drive

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: Excellent storage driver. I've been using the WD Passports since they came out, and have to say I have great luck with them. They travel with me, take constant use, including frequent massive date dumps, and I've never had one die yet. I gave an old 128gb one to my mother several years back when I upgraded, and even it still works. This one seems to be holding up just as well. Fast, too. Consistently maxes out my old USB 2.0.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsWD 2TB Passport

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: Started out as a great drive. I really like the password protected app. Drive is very fast when doing copies

Cons: Drive only lasted 3 months and then couldn't be recognized on any computer although it still spins up. Had that not happened this would be a 5. My 320GB Passport lasted many years and still works fine.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Ed, we thank you for taking the time to bring your concerns to us. We understand your situation and will gladly replace your in-warranty drive, as we stand by our products and their associated warranties.

3 out of 5 eggsUh....

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBL-NESN

Pros: High capacity in a relatively compact package.

Cons: Constantly wigs out. Not recognized by non-pc devices.

Other Thoughts: For some reason this thing goes thru occaisional fits where windows won't recognize it. I've had several file transfers stop midstream with the message "Can't access file". I've run chkdsk along with the Western Digital Utilities. Each time the drive passes. Another drawback is that my bluray player doesn't recognize it. I have several external USB 3.0 drives and this one is the only one it doesn't see. I think something may be wrong with the interface. I'm sending it back.
