Description

Save all your music, photos, and projects on the WD My Passport Ultra 2TB Silver. Connect it to your laptop or PC and transfer your files via USB 3.0. Because USB 3.0 is up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, you won't have to wait long. This ultra version of the Passport has a metal casing and is slightly thinner than the regular version. You can back up this drive automatically, thanks to the WD Smartware Pro software. You can personally set this up to occur constantly in the background or at a specific time. If you want to store your files safely, use the WD Security software to set a password. This way, no one can access your private files.

    compact and reliable

    Nicely compact and does not require power from the grid. Didn't know that was possible. I use it as a time machine on my Mac. Goes perfectly.

    Misleading information by Coolblue

    Jaap Breedveld | 17 October 2020 | In the version: WD My Passport for Mac 2TB Type C Blue | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • silently
    • Compact
    • no usb-c, but adapter

    If you expect an external HD for USB-C, you get an HD disk for USB-A with an adapter to USB-C, which means that the speed is limited.

    Reliable hard drive in somewhat poor housing.

    Jacques | 25 August 2020 | In the version: WD My Passport Ultra 5TB Blue | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • price/mb ratio for such a HDD
    • Reliable hard drive
    • "Alu casing look" but the housing is completely made of plastic.
    • The USB-C connection on the drive is hypersensitive and weak.

    The weak point on this WD drive is the USB-C connection, which is not solid and where it gets slack quite quickly. That is annoying when writing or reading large files (eg HD movies). If the drive moves during the data transfer, there is a chance that the USB-C cable will slip out of the housing or move so that you can start over. I previously had the same problem with WD drives with a USB Micro-B connection. Apparently WD hasn't learned it yet.

    Would love some help on how to get the WD drive working.

    Installation fails. The drive is connected to my iMac with a USB cable but it is not seen under the Storage tab in the WD icon. I've sent an email to WD Support, but haven't received a response yet.
