5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: very speedy thanks to USB 3.0

Cons: casing feels somewhat unsturdy

Other Thoughts: This portable hdd is great. I have Ubuntu in one partition, all my files backed up in the other. Feels just as fast as the hard drive in my computer when running Ubuntu. At one point I had WIndows 8.1 To Go on a partition, again ran just like normal. Because it's not solid state and because the casing feels a bit loose, I would not say it is the most sturdy thing. I have a case for it, but even then I am reluctant to throw it in my backpack. But hey, it's withstood a year, almost 2, so I am happy.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

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

Pros: Fast, USB 3.0, lots of storage

Cons: Unreliable!

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these about 8 months ago... Only 1 still works. Very disappointed in the reliability considering how careful I have been with them, even storing them in cases when not in use!

1 out of 5 eggsFor want of a nail, the war was lost

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

Pros: Worked great for a while

Cons: I reported earlier that the rubber anti- slip feet came off too easily. Well the drive slipped off the table and it failed the 3 foot drop test. Landed flat and has no external damage, and it spins up but windows can't find it. Lost a lot of data so I think I will NOT replace it with a WD drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear James, we are truly sorry to hear that you have lost your files. It is advisable to ensure you always have at a minimum, two copies of your digital data at all times, to avoid potential data loss, by running regular backups. Backing up your data protects you in case of accidental physical damage.

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

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

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 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN Black

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 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN Black

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 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN Black

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.
