Western Digital My Passport Ultra 2TB Review
Western Digital My Passport Ultra (2TB drive) offers all the basic, storage functions with little gimmicks or complications. With the ability to store both through Western Digital or any other manufacturer, users will be pleased. Privacy is of little concern with this storage drive. Users can create a password and activate the products 256-bit encryption hardware for added security. The My Passport Ultra 2TB drive features a sleek design that comes I several different colors, including blue, black, red and silver.
The device is around 0.81 inches thick and the sides/bottom of the drive are a solid, black color. The My Passport Ultra 2TB is small enough in size to fit in a large pocket or small bag and is light enough for easy transportation. The bulk of the storage drive is made of a flexible, plastic material that is slightly disappointing. The device does not feel sturdy and may not stand up too well to drops or scratches, making the device seem sort of cheap. There are also several USB ports located within the My Passport Ultra 2TB Drive: a USB 3.0 and a USB 2.0.
The My Passport Ultra 2TB uses some impressive software and hardware in order to properly runs. Like other versions of this storage drive, the device is designed to work with Windows software, including Windows 8, Widows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. For those who use MAC computers, the storage drive does come equipped with a My Passport Apps for Mac folder. Users can quickly and easily run diagnostic checks, run a secure erase of the hard drive and manually set up the idle time on the drive. The SmartWare Pro backup software is easily the best feature of the My Passport Ultra 2TB drive. SmartWare Pro gives users the opportunity to back up data through the Western Digital drive itself or any other external drive.
Dropbox can be used as well. However, the drive is not compatible with SkyDrive or Google Drive. Security should be no concern with this device due to the extensive password protection and 256-bit hardware encryption provided to you. Performance, like other Western Digital devices, is of no concern. The device ran smoothly during our read and write tests and scored relatively high in both compressed and uncompressed file tests. The storage drive is ideal for those who want to add extra storage for music, photos, videos and files or just want to back up your important files onto a safer location.
