5 out of 5 eggsNice backup drive

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBPGC5000ATT-NESN Titanium

Pros: Originally I wanted external SSD. For reasons of speed, sound and durability...no moving parts. However for $59 you get a pretty solid, quiet and well made external. I broke down and bought this little gem. Happy I did. It's small quiet and easy to use.

Cons: My only complaint would be the difficulty in selecting this one. There were bigger ones that cost less, different colors that cost more, labeled different but looked the same...etc. It was a mess. It took me some time to deduce that this was one of the faster, quieter ones and this color was on sale. well whatever!

Other Thoughts: I can't speak for the software pre-installed on the drive. I immediately formatted the drive and was happy to see it worked perfectly just like an extra hdd should. I have no intention of using network continuous backup. If it's important data, save it on this and disconnect!

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Great

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBPGC5000ATT-NESN Titanium

Pros: Easy connection
Decent backup software
Compact

Cons: Kludgy Software

Other Thoughts: Included software is kludgy; this 500GB unit was bought as a present (I have the similar 1TB item, which is what this review is base on).

It's relatively fast (considering the power consumption constraints of single-connector USB) and virtually silent.

The included software allows only one partition to back up at a time, and forget imaging/cloning. There are, however, decent freeware apps that bridge the gap.

The individual I gifted this drive finally backed up his laptops with the included software - and finally his desktop without enduring burning several DVDs.

All-in-all this is an excellent drive, despite the shortcomings of the software (my opinion is that true backup software should include cloning/imaging features).
