1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

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

Pros: None

Cons: Owned this drive for 13 months, connected to NAS, was performing fine with occasional access, only 20% full. It suddenly quit working and starting emitting the click of death sounds, became unrecognizable under NAS, Mac OSX, and windows XP SP3. Data worth more than the drive placed on it recently was not backed up in time, and permanently lost. Will never purchase WD drives again - owned a previous 3.5 internal WD that died after light use and 30% full. At this point I may try to crack the case and try to get it to spin properly enough to backup data.

Other Thoughts: Do not purchase this drive, clicking sounds and sudden failure common, see reviews on US Newegg and other major vendors. It will become unrecognizable and hence inaccessible under any OS.

3 out of 5 eggsbright white light

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

Pros: Big drive. Reasonable price.

Cons: I was expecting a micro usb connector. Don't know if this connector is specific to 3.0 or a proprietary connector. (Will have to look into this.)
The light is a bit brighter and whiter than my old WD Passport (soft blue is easier on the eyes.)

Other Thoughts: Remember it's only 1 TB in marketing speak.
This one's
1,000,169,533,440 bytes -or-
931 GB
with 426 MB used for apps for Windows and Mac and user manuals and EULA's in multiple languages.

1 out of 5 eggsBrick within 6 months

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

Pros: Good price for amount of storage..

Cons: After 6 months of light use, it is no longer recognized in win7 or 8.1. Suddenly disappeared from devices list .Discovered this is a common problem in several forums. Updated & reinstalled wd drivers but it still could not be initialized in disk management. Finally recognized in Win8.1 but only with usb3, does not work with usb2. All data and formatting gone - file system listed as RAW in disk management.

Other Thoughts: Lost a lot of media files. What good is a HDD when it is not stable and you can't be sure your files will be there when you need them? If you treasure your data, stay away from this drive.
I'll see if WD honors the 3 year warranty.

2 out of 5 eggsI think I'll stick with Seagate

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

Pros: It started out fast, just didn't stay that way for long.

Cons: Fairly cheap and unprotective casing, flexes too easily for comfort. The drive inside is loud and scratchy and in general sounds terrible, Seagates run much smoother and quieter.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible experience

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

Pros: It's cheap, now.........

Cons: Unreliable, error prone, a disaster.

Other Thoughts: I took a picture of this HD in the trash can, in pieces, that was to be my full review, but I guess you cannot submit pictures here. I have had nothing but trouble with this and other WD drives lately. Used to swear by them. No more.

5 out of 5 eggsNeat little performer

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

Pros: Very fast & quiet, reasonably priced, reliable (kept it connected for 4 days straight without problems or issues), small & lightweight.

Cons: USB3 cable is very short - would like to have at least a couple of extra feet in length for added placement flexibility.

Other Thoughts: Bought it for system backups and large data transfers, works without a hitch. Windows 7 finds it very quickly. WD should provide a longer USB3 cable for it though, the current one is really short.

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Very nice look and feel to the drive. Feels solid. I upgraded from an older USB 2.0 external drive. This drive was much smaller than my old drive which I like. I got a Case Logic case to put it in. 3 year warranty. Love it.

Cons: None yet!

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

Pros: None

Cons: This is a very unreliable product. The one and only thing you need the most when you buy a HD is for storing data, unfortunately this is where this product fails miserably for no reasons. Avoid it at all costs and save your headache!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

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

Pros: Small, quiet, no additional power adapter needed.

Works great!

Cons: mechanical hard drive

Other Thoughts: This is a mechanical hard drive, don't bang it around or it will stop working. My advice with mechanical hard drives is to treat them like a carton of eggs.

4 out of 5 eggscheap, bus-powered, decent performance

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

Pros: This is an external USB3 drive powered only via the USB cable.

I've gotten four of these 1TB WD drives a year earlier for ~$90-100 and hooked them up to two home machines, my laptop, and even a box at work to run as TimeMachine or Windows backup drives. They've worked exactly as expected, and even outlasted the internal drive on a Mac mini.

This "WD My Passport Ultra" is the same deal but they've shrunk the height a little and the price by a lot-- the 1TB is now going for ~$60.

Cons: The WD Backup software isn't worth bothering with if you've got TM with MacOS X, or even a fairly recent version of Windows backup around.

Write performance is a little slow.
