  • 1Description

Store up to 13 full-length feature films over a capacity of 1TB using the black 1TB My Passport Cinema 4K UHD Movie Storage USB 3.0 Hard Drive from WD. This portable USB 3.0 hard drive is compatible with the Vidity-enabled 4K Ultra HD TVs and devices and connects to the device's USB port. It comes pre-loaded with Hollywood titles in 4K Ultra HD and there are also some titles with HDR technology, which helps provide the picture quality with increased dynamic range. Since all the content is stored on the drive, there is no buffering, image stuttering, or quality changes that are associated with streaming content.

While this drive does come pre-loaded with 4K Ultra HD content, please bear in mind that a movie access code must be purchased from M-GO or another Vidity retailer before any content may be enjoyed. However, users will receive two free movies with their purchase of a Samsung JS9000 or above model. In addition to the JS9000, this drive is currently compatible with Samsung HU, JU, and JD series 4K UHD and 4K SUHD TVs. As the list of compatible systems will continue to grow, please check the complete list with WD. Lastly, the total number of movies that the drive is able to store depends on the bit rate, resolution, and frames per second.

Included with the black 1TB My Passport Cinema is a 32" USB 3.0 cable. The drive is compatible with USB 3.0 at speeds up to 5 Gb/s and USB 2.0 at speeds up to 480 Mb/s. It is also protected by a limited 1-year warranty.

Please be aware that VIDITY currently only works within the United States.

    WD WDBZKS0010BBK-NESN reviews

    1TB My Passport Cinema 4K UHD Movie Storage USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Black) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keep the box I said keep the box because part of the setup instructions that make in necessary to view the free movies included are on the box. The sheet of instructions that come with the drive only show you how to hook up the usb cable. How to sign up to view the movies is shown only on the box.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drive works great, Confusing access to pre-installed content I received the WD My Passport Cinema external Hard Drive when I purchased a Samsung JS9000 TV. The hard drive is small and works really well. I have only had one issue with the drive itself. The drive is formated as NTFS, so my Mac will read from, but not write to the drive. This is unfortunate as I would need to reformat the drive and lose the pre-installed content in order to add my own files. Luckily I was able to find software to allow me to write files to it, but beware if you have a Mac and wish to add more files without formatting the drive, and loosing the pre-installed content. The main problem I had with this product relates to accessing the pre-installed content. The drive comes pre-installed with several 4K UHD movies, two of them are free, while the others require a separate purchase, but no accompanying download since they are already on the drive. The sticker on the box mentions that you need a free account with M-GO to get access to the movies. That is all the mention of how to access the movies there is, even on the product website. This was confusing. M-GO is no longer in business, and has been bought out by FandangoNOW, something not apparent, and something I had to do research to learn. You need to register with FandangoNOW, a different entity than just Fandango.com. I had an issue where regardless of the email address I tried, I was told I already had an account, which I did not. I eventually had to contact FandangoNOW via their Support Ticket creation site, as their listed help@fandangonow.com email address never saw any response. After contacting them, I was contacted with my problem solved and my account created by them within a few hours. The inability to copy files over without added software on a Mac, and the lack of documentation abut how to access the movies, and the process of finding out that M-GO was no more, and getting the account created was maddening. But the drive itself works well and after those issues were resolved I have been really pleased with it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh... It does what its supposed to do. It was confusing at first. You have to access the movies through an app on the tv not the hard drive itself. Wish you could have chosen the 2 free movies it comes with. I've had it lock up a few times and had to restart it. If it was disconnected from my tv tomorrow and gone...I wouldn't know or care.
