5.0 out of 5 stars WD My Passport 2TB Review 27 Jun 2013
By Alan VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The WD (Western Digital) My Passport is a compact external hard drive, designed for backing up your computer (Mac or PC). If you're looking for a portable device with 2TB (terabytes) of storage and a USB 3.0 connection, WD currently make three suitable products, arranged here in ascending order of price:

- WD Elements 2TB USB 3.0 High Capacity Portable Hard Drive for Windows
- WD My Passport 2TB Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 - Silver (this product)
- WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 High Capacity Portable Hard Drive for Mac - Silver

Now, I've been studying the differences between the two cheaper products, the WD Elements 2TB and the WD My Passport 2TB, and I can only spot three "advantages" of the WD My Passport 2TB:

- It's available in five colours (Arctic White, Midnight Black, Metallic Blue, Metallic Red, Cool Silver)
- It comes pre-loaded with WD SmartWare automatic backup software
- It comes pre-loaded with WD Security software

Given that a lot of people reformat these hard drives immediately after unboxing them, the advantage of WD's pre-loaded software is questionable. So, unless you hate the colour black, you might want to consider the cheaper WD Elements 2TB instead. But anyway, the My Passport 2TB comes packaged in a small (13 x 17 x 4.8 cm) box that contains the following four items:

- My Passport 2TB portable hard drive (silver, WDBY8L0020BSL)
- USB 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Renew your passport... 1 Aug 2013
By techpuppy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I think the first external hard-drive I ever bought was about 6GB, was the size and weight of a small dictionary and sounded like a small Dyson when you switched it on - how times change. This WD My Passport 2TB comes in a case the size of a well-stuffed wallet (I would imagine) and is light enough to be forgotten about while it's in your coat pocket. The case-front looks like aluminium but it isn't, however the overall construction is good and feels sturdy enough. There are little rubber nodules on the underside to stop any annoying rattle while it's running and overall the drive seems almost silent, with just a very faint whirring. If you regularly need to carry it around then Western Digital make a hard WD Nomad Case but I chose the cheaper AmazonBasics Case for My Passport and that easily holds the drive, the short USB3 cable supplied and also, with a little squeeze, my slimline Seagate drive too.

The drive speeds are good, if not quite earth-shattering, and I average around 100MB/s (for both read and write) while attached via USB3 to my iMac, which is actually quite a bit faster than the iMac's internal drive. Although this drive isn't marketed at Mac-users (as some WD drives are) it works perfectly well, the only apparent difference is that the supplied onboard software is for Windows only. However all three packages WD offer for the drive -- a special Turbo driver, an encryption option and a utility app to change drive settings -- are available to download for both Windows and OSX from the WD website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Future Proof, compact and hardy portable drive 15 July 2013
By roses TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The new generation of WD Passport Drives are smaller in size than their predecessor but only slightly thicker and heavier. The front facing fascia is a matt silver which is a nice touch, this is then encapsulated by a black plastic case which hugs the back and sides. It is definitely an improvement on the old design. I own the previous generation of WD Passport drives and have found that everyday usage over a number of years has made the plastic case loose due to it's design. So I can see that the new design will probably outlast the old one that I have. The matt finish will also hide scuffs and scratches easily unlike the glossy finish predecessor.

The main selling point of this drive is the fact that it supports both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections making it fairly future proof in keeping up with recent tech developments. The transfer and read rate is decent, and three times faster on USB 3.0, a desirable feature when you are potentially going to be accessing almost 2TB of data. 2TB will be enough to store the equivalent of approximately 400,000 of photos or 500,000 of music files, so the high capacity should last you a long time and great for storing HD rich media. The drive is also quiet when in use and doesn't make a lot of noise. There is a LED status light to indicate the power and reading status of the drive.

The drive comes loaded with additional software which allows for password protection, encryption and backup software, which can be automated when you add or change a file. Please be aware that the drive is formatted for a Windows based machine as a NTFS system.

It came on time, I opened the package, and connected to MacBook Pro. The icon of MYPassport appears but the hard drive is not accessible at all. Waste of money, waste of time.
