1 out of 5 eggsWD My Passort Ultra is JUNK!

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: None, unless you enjoy having your blood pressure elevated

Cons: I purchased this to back up my computer. My computer running Windows 7 Home Premium refuses to recognize this external drive. I spent half an hour with Western Digital Tech Support and "Mike" could not resolve it even after downloaded their diagnostics software. All it reported was "Unable to access, corrupted files". He suggest that I return it to Newegg for warranty exchange.

Other Thoughts: What a waste of time and money.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little drive so far

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: ~i get transfer speeds up to 100 MB/s via usb 3.0 (actual use)
~has been plug and play on all of my machines (each with different windows OS...vista, 7, 8)
~password protection

Cons: ~permissions for files originating from different computers can take some work

Other Thoughts: Great upgrade from my old 1TB My Book. Both 5400 rpm drives, but this one is way more portable, doesn't require external power, and can get 3x the transfer speed of the usb 2.0 drives.

No comment on the WD backup software because I haven't used it.

The drive goes on sale very often for $60, no need to pay more.

4 out of 5 eggsQuick and reliable

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Small and portable is always a plus for something like this. I love that the set up was really simple as well. The whole process was quick and easy. Haven't had any problems after almost a year of having it either.

Cons: I was really hoping I could pick a different color but black will suffice.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Small and light. This thing really does move at USB 3.0 speeds if you plug it into a USB 3.0 port on your computer. Even with a 2.0 port the drive can transfer really fast. I use these drives at work to image stations in under 15 minutes. This drive also does not heat up after long reads or writes.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Use this with a 3.0 USB port for full potential

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Product

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Provides a reliable external drive to back up as much or as little as you like.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I videotape meetings that last for days. The digital video files are just too large to electronically send by most methods. I use these drives to reliably send (a Passport external drive by FedEx) to my customers files that are in the terabyte range. I use one myself, and I have purchased some for family members. No bad luck yet.

1 out of 5 eggsHighly Disappointed

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBZFP0010BBK-NESN Black

Pros: Installed easy. That's about it

Cons: Randomly disconnects making large file transfers such as windows back-ups(The entire reason I bought this) impossible. It'll spin and work for about a minute, the drive will making a single chirp sound and then it'll fail.

Other Thoughts: First, why I bought it: I bought this because I have recently purchased an SSD for my laptop. I wanted to preserve all my files that were on the original HDD but having only 1 SATA port, I needed a fairly large external to back-up and later restore Windows from. I choose WD because they were a trusted brand. So after ordering and all that jazz, it arrived and boy was I happy. I immediately plugged it in and let windows install the standard drivers and following that I installed the WD software included on the drive. That all went of without a hitch. From there I went to use the built-in windows back-up software. I set it up and whatever and then sat and watched it for a bit to make sure it wouldn't have any problems. To my surprise, less than a minute in the drive makes a chirp sound and failed. I read the error from windows and it said the drive was not ready. So I tried again and again and that's what started me doing what I stated below to try fixing it.

I've tried quite a bit to try making this work. I've tried both my USB ports (2.0 and 3.0), Rolled back and updated drivers in different combinations, plugging into a powered usb 3.0 hub to allow to draw more power than it typically would be able to(After I tried directly to the port). I've tried formatting the drive and even sent in for a new one. All this and it still will not work for me.

Now since I have already sent it in for warranty once, I can't send it in again. So after spending all this money to buy the drive, a warranty, 3 day shipping and shipping for RMA, I am stuck with a faulty, un-formatted 1 TB harddrive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear David B., we want to extend our apologies for the issue you have experienced. Given the continued and similar issues with multiple drives on your system, it would be a good troubleshooting step to try attaching the drive to another Windows computer to test for a possible compatibility issue. If the drive works on another system, there may be a power issue causing the drive to not function at nominal speeds for normal operation. Our support team is happy to work with you further on this, in an attempt to provide you with a sound technical solution. Please contact our support department at (800) 275-4932, or via our support website at: http://support.wdc.com/rs
Be sure to mention this Newegg review when you speak with our staff.
