5 out of 5 eggsWD 2TB USB 3

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Near perfect portable backup and storage drive. Reasonably small and fast. Does not require 2nd USB power or AC adaptor when plugged into my Asus motherboard. I hope it will prove as robust as my still perfect 8(?) year old WD 250GB little black brick which has survived several drops to hard floors. The very pretty thin plastic case of this guy will likely not withstand much of an impact.

Cons: Not really a con - but slightly larger than expected - 1-3 mm in every dimension compared to WD 1TB but still fits very easily in a shirt pocket. Will likely never purchase another 3.5 inch drive.

Other Thoughts: Sometimes does not like USB 2.0 cables but works fine with an old thin original Kindle which will not charge a Samsung tablet. Prefers the original short fat WD USB 3.0 cable - have problems with some longer skinny generics.

5 out of 5 eggsHardware encryption a big plus

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red

Pros: Works out of the box with Windows 7. I like the encryption feature gives me the confidence to backpack the drive when needed without fear of the files being completely open if stolen. I won't buy a USB drive now without this feature.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red

Pros: It's small, light, and fits nicely behind my desktop computer. It works with my Macintosh and Windows computers nicely after being reformatted. The bright, shiny red color helps me find it, as it is tiny. All HDD sectors checked out fine with software on the Mac and Win computers.

Cons: I've stopped using the hard drive I meant to with the Mac desktop because this one is easier to find a place for. It was supposed to be an external HDD used for transferring video between members of a group.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red

Pros: - Lightweight but heavy enough to know there is build quality.
- Nice looking drive
- Comes with a nice carrying bag
- 4 rubber feet on base of drive to prevent it from vibrating around
- 1 USB cable required, even on a USB 2.0 port
- Very fast USB 3.0 speeds! (Read and write speeds from my internal Samsung EVO SSD to this external average 101 MB/s!)
- Installed basic drivers on my 8.1 o/s automatically within 20 seconds. Not sure what the guy in the other review is getting all upset over... every drive or device requires drivers!
- Just like most drives, you don't have to use the software included, just delete the folders people.

Cons: - USB connector (drive side) is thin and kind of flimsy, you would not want to apply pressure or bend it.
- USB cable is about 1.5 feet long, relatively short.

Other Thoughts: Buy this drive, especially when it's on sale. Can't go wrong with it. I bought this for my personal use, we have 15 of these at work that have been going strong for over a year.

1 out of 5 eggsCompact, high-capacity, but beware of software

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red

Pros: This is a compact, high-capacity drive in what appears to be a rugged case. For backing up and transferring large files, it is a convenient package.

Cons: Under Microsoft Windows, inserting this USB drive causes the operating system to request to install the Western Digital SES driver. That is, this unit is not simply an external hard drive, it offers additional features that require installation of an additional device driver.

This 'feature' is very inconvenient for one of the primary uses of the drive - moving large files between computers. Unless you want Microsoft Windows to request installation of the SES driver each time you connect the drive, every system to which you connect the drive must have the SES driver installed.

This is obviously a problem in any environment in which the computer configuration is tightly controlled.

In my experience, Seagate drives do not have this problem.

This drive operates correctly under Linux, which appears to have a built-in SES driver. The dmsg output from Ubuntu 13.10 shows the SES hardware being recognized correctly.

Other Thoughts: Buy a Seagate drive in order to transfer large files between computers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi DANIEL T, we apologize for any inconvenience. Western Digital My Passport hard drives require a special communications channel (SCSI) between the PC and the hard drive to enable certain features such as password protection, LED control, and access to the drives label if applicable. Please note that the SES driver is not required for your drive to be recognized by your computer; you may still use it just like any other external USB memory to copy and paste your files. The link below further explains what the SES driver is and why it is needed.
