1 out of 5 eggsThere are definitely better drives out there.

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: Small, Cheap, Available just about anywhere.

Cons: Failed after a couple of weeks.
Internally this has a WD Green Drive. I have had nothing but good experiences with WD's Black drives, not so much with the Green Drives. I probably am hard on drives, but I should be able to transfer 300gb+ at a time if needed.

Other Thoughts: Western Digital has a handy color coded labeling scheme a lot of people miss. The color of the capacity (xTB) sticker on the front of the package tells you what kind of drive is inside.
Green: Eco Friendly, low power usage, powers down when not in use.
Blue: Intended for the average user, backups and occasional use.
Black: High Durability, Intended for extended use, constant use and gaming.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: Works great, I like that it is encrypted since it is so portable.

Cons: I have lost (3) of the (4) little adhesive feet and so it slides around too much. Where can I get a lifetime supply of those little rubber dots?

4 out of 5 eggsReliable / Includes Backup Software

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: Great price, compact size, and reliable. I use these all over our company and at home for unattended PC backup.

The included WD Smartware backup software has multiple configuration options and is very intuitive. They have regular software update releases so you know Western Digital makes quality control a priority.

Cons: Directory names and tree structure are not intuitive. For example my files by default are stored in:

H:\WD SmartWare.swstor\"computer name"\Volume.5cc5d4c5.4862.11e2.870f.806e6f6e6963\

I cannot find any way to change the default backup directory, so that would be a nice feature to add. To make it easier for users I just create a shortcut on their desktop to the folder location.

The included USB cable is only about 16 inches long. It would be nice if it shipped with at least a 3 ft. cable.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very satisfied with these units and will continue to use them.

5 out of 5 eggsNice external drive

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: Fast 3.0 is quite a bit faster than 2.0. Basically plug and play.

Cons: It seemed hard to install and get the provided software to work. I had to install, reboot several times. It would hang....

Not knocking an egg off for that could have been user error.

After getting it working works like it's supposed to.

1 out of 5 eggsWould not buy again

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: It's a cheap 2TB hard drive by Western Digital, a name you can usually trust.

Cons: After four years of very light use (occassional backups once or twice a year and very light file surfing) the drive stopped being available to access on any computer, but would heat up to very high almost scalding temperatures when plugged in. It would light up. Will not buy again.

Other Thoughts: I am going to pay a higher price for my hard drives or just get lower capacity in the future. You do get what you pay for. Most people will want this for backups and it failed on me, lost some stuff.

4 out of 5 eggsYet another solid WD Passport Drive.

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: I personally have a lot of brand loyalty here. I've never had a WD passport drive go bad on me, and this one is no different.

Cons: My personal pet peeve: Hard Drive companies always rounding the numbers up. There was only about 1.65 TB of usable space on my 2 TB harddrive. :-( But the whole industry does it, so whatever.

2 out of 5 eggsLarge Capacity but Slow and Stalls

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: Small, Colorful, Large Capacity

Cons: I use it for MP4 movies on my Smart TV. I have mini external hard drives attached to all my TVs in the house. All of my Drives are Toshiba Canvios with the exception of this one. This WD drive hangs up constantly. i have to power it down and reboot it all the time. I am Seriously less than impressed. I never have a Problem with my other Hard Drives.

Other Thoughts: So disappointed in this purchase!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat big little backup

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: Small, robust, fairly fast, super portable, very low power needed. Nice case that doesn't show fingerprints.

Cons: Short USB cable.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this drive almost daily for over a year to do backups and large data transfers between my laptop and desktops. I've always been pretty happy with the speed and really like the fact it runs on USB power. It's almost like having a 2Tb flash drive.

A couple days ago I grabbed my laptop off my workbench forgetting the drive was attached. Before the USB cable came out of the drive it flung it off the bench to the hard floor where it bounced and clattered to a stop several feet away. Other than a dinged corner and couple light scratches there was no damage. I plugged it back in and tested it, even checking through much of it's 1.5Tb of data looking for anything corrupted and it is running fine. I'm now even more amazed at this little spinning platter drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup drive

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN

Pros: 2TB space
USB 3.0

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a 1TB version of this drive already and just needed an extra drive for backup purposes. The USB 3.0 is speedy and I really like the size of this drive. It runs cool and quiet and is fast. Perfect for backing up family videos and family photos.

Recommended.
