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

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good So Far

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

Pros: Small, sturdy and light. Very quiet with minimal vibration. Small rubber feet keep the drive in place. Fast - my test results are close to advertised claims. No USB 3 problems with my T430 Thinkpad. Password protection software works well and includes a handy option for automatic password entry on the computer where the software is installed.

Cons: I generally like to see non-proprietary cables. Cheaper if you lose the cable, and easier to use other lengths. The provided cable works fine though. The password protection software installs a virtual drive and hogs an additional drive letter (only when the drive is plugged in though). Maybe that is the best way to do it, but it seems odd.

Other Thoughts: My review is for the 1TB drive. I find the cable to be a handy length for use with a laptop, and for storing with the drive. If your USB port is in an awkward spot, it may be a bit short. The included lightweight storage sack is a nice addition, but no substitute for a sturdy case. I don't use and didn't install the backup software, so I can't comment on that, or on the drive's longevity. My experience with WD drives has been generally very good. I'm very happy with the drive so far...

4 out of 5 eggsGood Drive For The Money

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

Pros: Attractive
Reasonably Fast
Priced Right
Reliable

I use portable hard drives primarily to store System Image backups for multiple computers. I bought this 1TB WD My Passport Ultra to replace a WD My Passport 750 GB unit (needed more capacity). The 750 GB drive benchmarked at: 92.1 MB/s Sequential Read and 88.6 MB/s Sequential write. 4K Read performance was 0.344 MB/s and Write was 0.746.

With the new WD My Passport Ultra one third full, it benchmarks as follows: Sequential Read 112.3 MB/s, Sequential Write 112.6 MB/s. 4K random Read is 0.545 and Write is 1.150.

So the WD Ultra outperforms the non-Ultras by a significant amount. I have two Silicon Power portable drives (a 1TB A15 and a 750 GB A80) and both outperformed my WD 750 GB drive. The 1TB WD Ultra, however, our performs both Silicon Power drives.

The 1TB Ultra drive is also a bit slimmer than (not as thick as) my WD 750 GB non-Ultra drive.

It was on sale for $59.99 when I bought it. I would say it is a bargain at that price.

Cons: Not really a con, but I would have preferred a Red or Blue case but Black was the only color on sale.

Other Thoughts: Some have mentioned they thought the cable was a bit short. It is 19" long which I find long enough. Additionally, it is about 1/2 the thickness of many other USB cables which makes it much easier to "coil up" and store in a Case Logic carrying case along with the drive.

The USB cables that came with my Silicon Power drives were 24" long and much too thick to allow storage in the same case as the drive. I think the dimensions of the USB cable are a plus.

I would recommend it to friends.

4 out of 5 eggsCompact and easy to set up

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

Pros: It gets the job done! I bought this unit to back up my desktop data. Set up was simple. It is "plug-and-play" with a few clicks to set up the choices of what items are to be stored. It is USB3 operation, And it comes with a two foot USB cord.

Cons: It would have been nice to have gotten a stand so as to set the unit vertical if needed. An "on-and-off" button would have been nice, too. You have to download the operating instructions...a pain!

Other Thoughts: It would have also been very nice if Western Digital had created an interphase which allowed the user to partition segments of the hard drive and been able to" tag-and-label" those sectors for fast targeted recall when needed. Organization is always a plus.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

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

Pros: A good little HD for backing up the stuff that a bit too important for mirrored RAID, and any off-line/portable storage. Basically plug-and-play. Speedy delivery as always!

Cons: Got no use for cloud storage, and the backup software (at least at default settings - didn't spend much time playing with it) only recognized the boot drive.

Other Thoughts: List price is a bit spendy, but on sale this was an excellent little HD.

5 out of 5 eggsHIGHLY recommend

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

Pros: Sturdy Build
Surprisingly fast file transfer
Decent Price

Cons: Proprietary cable (kinda)

Other Thoughts: I just did an acronis 75gb backup onto this HDD in just under 6 minutes. Yes it was from an SSD, but that is still impressive for a 5400 rpm drive. The USB 3.0 seems solid. I haven't tried it on Win 8 yet, but the packaging says it is supported and i trust Western Digital.

The charging cable is only a foot long and has a "unique" end on it. LUCKILY it is the exact same fitting that my Galaxy Note 3 uses, so i was able to use that 3ft cable without a hitch. So there is that.

5 out of 5 eggsAn excellent tool for transfer and backup

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

Pros: Small portable drive that stores an enormous amount of data. Rapid transfer, particularly when used with a USB 3.0 port, but backwards-compatible for much older machines. Nice casing. Carrying pouch is convenient.

Cons: None that I am aware of

Other Thoughts: Bought this to transfer data from my old desktop to a new one; it holds all my documents, images, music, and videos with plenty of room to spare. Transfer is particularly rapid when used with a USB 3.0 port, but it worked quite well with an ancient machine running XP too. Now planning to set it up as a backup drive to main desktop, though the small size and portability means it would also be a great companion for a laptop. Absolutely worth the purchase.
