      When debating to upgrade my 500 MB Passport I knew I was looking at at least 2 TB of storage and a USB 3.0 powered portable external hard drive.Like my other Passport, this is a solid build and will be connected to my laptop unless I need to take it somewhere. Very unobtrusive. Love the color. Not sure if for the extra money it's worth the cloud storage, but it is slick.If you're looking for benchmarks, here they are:-----------------------------------------------------------------------CrystalDiskMark 3.0.2 x64 (C) 2007-2013 hiyohiyo Crystal Dew World : MB/s = 1,000,000 byte/s [SATA/300 = 300,000,000 byte/s] Sequential Read : 111.920 MB/s Sequential Write : 107.535 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 40.201 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 55.535 MB/s Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 0.534 MB/s [ 130.4 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 1.324 MB/s [ 323.2 IOPS] Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 0.582 MB/s [ 142.0 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 1.358 MB/s [ 331.4 IOPS] Test : 1000 MB [G: 0.0% (0.4/1863.0 GB)] (x5) Date : 2013/08/25 21:39:14 OS : Windows 7 Home Premium Edition SP1 [6.1 Build 7601] (x64)I love having an external hard drive power through the USB port. The Essentials line was a little cumbersome trying to plug things in with all the other devices out there.Look forward to backing up my system, my 18,000 songs,am still having close to a terabyte left for years to come.

      As for the products performance, it works just fine. I was a little disappointed though when the product was bigger than i expected when it arrived. In the picture they are actually showing the 1TB model, the 2TB is actually twice the height. So, beware, if you are looking for a tiny drive, you will prob. be in for a shock when it arrives. Also, from the picture, it appears to be made with a metal outer shell, but it's just plastic colored to look metal. The name "titanium" was misleading. I'm sure this is a great product functionally, but i was really hoping for a super small heavy duty drive, and it turned out to not be what i had hoped for.

      Comments about 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive (Black):

      I own 4 of these things. They are reliable, and easy to use. Compatible with both macs and windows, and last for quite a while. Also good performance drives for small editing projects.

          Comments about 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive (Black):

          Compact, works faithfully and quiet. I average maybe 85Mbps using the drives with my Asus All-In-One desktop computer. I have 4 of these drives plugged into a corded HUB. But my speeds are the same, whether plugged into the HUB or directly into the computer. I stream movies from the drives with no problems and transfer files on and off the drive continuously with no problems. I have put each of my 4 drives in the Western Digital Nomad hard case and they do not overheat and stay new looking.

          I recommend buying these drives. Now I'm wanting to buy one of the metallic ones!

            I have four of these and use them mostly for running continuous backups of the computers in the house. The software that comes with them works well and gets the job done.

            Also, when I travel, I'll transfer all of my raw images onto one of these drives as a backup to what is on my notebook so I have two copies to bring home.

              Have 3 of these exact models. They are great for portability. They stack easy enough using rubber circular feet. They sync amazingly quickly. It is about 6 hours for a copy of about 75% used space.

                  This is my D: drive, for thousands of digital photos. I have another Passport that I use for backup, and keep off-site. Larger (TB), smaller (size), no power cable needed, and faster than my failing external.

                            As for the products performance, it works just fine. I was a little disappointed though when the product was bigger than i expected when it arrived. In the picture they are actually showing the 1TB model, the 2TB is actually twice the height. So, beware, if you are looking for a tiny drive, you will prob. be in for a shock when it arrives. Also, from the picture, it appears to be made with a metal outer shell, but it's just plastic colored to look metal. The name "titanium" was misleading. I'm sure this is a great product functionally, but i was really hoping for a super small heavy duty drive, and it turned out to not be what i had hoped for.

                                      I use this for my laptop and no complaints...very reliable. It's very quiet and stays cool. The USB cable could be longer but I'll pick up a longer extension.

                                                Compact and fast: USB 3.0. I transferred 500GB from another storage unit very quickly and easily. Use it often for my backups: so far so good.
