The blue and black, 1TB My Passport Ultra Metal Edition from Western Digital gives you the storage space you need to save a variety of files from music to photos, movies, videos, and more. This bus-powered USB 3.0 external hard drive features both password protection and 256-bit hardware encryption technology to ensure whatever you store on the drive will remain safe and secure.

In addition to storage, this drive can be used as a backup solution for both Windows and Mac computers. The drive comes pre-formatted for Windows based machines and requires a simple reformat to be used with computers running Mac OS. With the included WD SmartWare Pro backup software the sometimes-arduous task of backing up your data is greatly simplified while integrated cloud backup functionality via Dropbox offers an additional backup option.

    WD WDBTYH0010BBA-NESN reviews

    1TB My Passport Ultra Metal Edition (Blue/Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic and reliable performer. Western Digital products are a favorite of mine and this is no exception. The finish is beautiful and looks like it could take quite a bit of abuse. God forbid as it just looks so great. Performance is great for such a small form factor and still being a platter driven hard drive. I simply cannot find a way to have it improved. Possibly having a grippier surface on the bottom to keep it from sliding? How about including a carrying case? Little things that would just make this superb. I'm glad I included this unit in my run down of computer technologies for the photographer on my blog at www.ricardogomezphotography.com/blog

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Passport Evolved Metal coating covers the top and sides, which adds a bit a class to the drive. Makes it feel more substantial and less like plastic. Also matches Asus' Zenbook series. Drive is bus powered, which is nice. Given its size, drive is obviously slower than a 7200rpm drive or flash, but, given the price, this is a great drive for carrying about tons of files in your bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great External Hard Drive This 1TB Gold Anniversary Edition is another great hard drive from Western Digital.There are only two things that I do not particularly like about this drive.1.There are no rubber feet on the underside of the unit2.The USB cable is thicker and stiffer than the earlier modelsThese two combine to cause the drive to sometimes slide around when it's sitting on a smooth surface particularly when the USB cable is plugged into my MacBook Pro.Apart from those two minor complaints I really like this drive.1.This unit has so far performed flawlessly. 2.Compatible with both PC and Mac 3.USB 3.0/2.04.It's extremely fast and quiet5.Huge capacity6.Great price 7.Stays cool8.It looks awesome, has great form factor9.Contrary to what another reviewer has stated, this drive is extremely easy to reformat to the Mac platform, it took me all of 2 minutes10.Oh Yes, and there's Free Expedited Shipping, gotta love FES

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable Beauty Solid WD hardware in a nice compact package just right for the road warrior or the school bag. Familiar software and ready to use out-of-the-box. I wouldn't call it blue/black, it's really a blue or purple. I would prefer an actual black finish. I use it to haul software images and documenation to work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solution I purchased this drive to use as a backup for the internal drives of 2 pcs and to provide a place to keep a copy of photos I take while away from home. Its capacity allows me to have 3 copies of the photos at all times - either two internal drives plus the WD or the laptop's internal plus the SD card plus the WD. This drive is an ideal solution to that problem. It is easy to install because it is PnP and it has proven backup software already loaded.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very cool looking, however.... After wading through pages of instructions on formatting for use with my MacBook Air, I was unable to format the drive. I finally went to Apple Support, found concise instructions and succeeded in formatting the drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2nd Passport and even better than the 1st. This is a streamlined unit that I love. I have it as a backup of all my old work, pictures, etc... One thing against both models - I wish the USB Cable was white not black. Aesthetically it would look so much better on my white desk and match all my other Mac cables better!
