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 Black

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 Black

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 Black

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 Black

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 Black

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.

5 out of 5 eggsThicker / heavier than the 1TB

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

Pros: It's generally the same as my 1TB version which has been rock-solid reliable.

Cons: Not necessarily a con, but... Like me, many people may be moving up from a 1TB drive. For some reason I was expecting the 2TB to be exactly the same size. Look at the specs (I did not). The 2TB feels substantially thicker and heavier than the 1TB. If you are on the go a lot, and if you have limited space, then you need to know it's just a bit heftier.

Other Thoughts: I will try to remember to update the review after a couple months of run time. As I stated, the prior 1TB has been excellent. I have no reason to expect any less with this 2TB model.

Side note: I run VMWare images daily. Using the old 1TB on a USB3.0 port, I can run one decent image right off the portable drive. It's not SSD fast, but it's way better than "just usable".

5 out of 5 eggsFits The Bill!

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

Pros: This was a great purchase for a new job where I have to be very moble in a very short period of time. My work computer is very unreliable and I can't replace it. This preserves all my work regardless of where I go.

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGood backup drive

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

Pros: I have had this device for 3 months now. It's working fantastic as a backup drive. I use EaseUs Todo Backup software to back up images of my hard drive on a regular basis. Software is easily avoidable - just don't click on the .exe installer!

Cons: comes with pre-packaged software, but this is mitigated by the fact you can easily just not install it or completely reformat the drive.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value, Performance, and Reliability

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

Pros: Great Value, Portable, Excellent Performance, Extremely Reliable! In fact, I have bought many western digital hard drives through the years for both professional and Personal Use, and I have yet to find another hard drive to last as long as my WD drives. I've had drives still fully functional even after 10+ years of heavy usage!

Cons: I don't really consider this a con because you get what you pay for, but some of their drives may be a few dollars more than another brand, but my decades of consistent reliability with these drives is worth far more than the minimal extra cost for their higher end drives.
