The blue and black, 3TB 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.

Complete Backup Solution
WD SmartWare Pro backup software offers an easy way to back up and protect your important files. With a variety of backup options including file/folder, category, scheduled and even cloud backup you can easily keep all of your files up to date and secure.
Back Up Your Way
Choose from automatic and continuous or scheduled backup. Automatic and continuous backup runs quietly in the background and backs up your files every time you add or change and save a file. With scheduled backup, you choose the day, time and frequency of your backups.
Cloud Backup with Dropbox
Integrate your Dropbox account using SmartWare Pro so you can back up your files to the cloud. Or, back up the files from your Dropbox account to your My Passport Ultra Metal Edition.
Save, Share, Access in the Cloud
Do more with My Passport Ultra Metal Edition and your Dropbox account. Share and access your files securely online from anywhere, on any device with Dropbox cloud integration.
Keep Your Private Stuff Private
Password protection and 256-bit hardware encryption allows you to secure every photo, video, music and important file you save.
Easy Setup

    WD WDBEZW0030BBA-NESN reviews

    3TB My Passport Ultra Metal Edition (Blue/Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best deal available I researched for the best deal and ended up here. I had a chat with a representative to find out if the set price was due to used or refurbished. They answered that it was an official product, which it was and came in the authentic WD product box when I received it. I made the purchase right after the chat. Features: Decent disk space of 2.72GB, password encrypted security system, small hand fit design, and it looks even better in front of you. Comes with its' cable connector to 3.0 USB, so no extra cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Ideal Littel drive I use this as a backup drive for my audio and video edting systems. It's size and the fact that it's bus powered make it a great solution for my macbook and imac systems. And the cost makes them ideal as backup and storage - fill with files, label and store on the shelf and start with a new one. I do the same with the affordable G-Drives as my edit drives. Fill them every month or so and store likewise. Affordable, redundant editing, backup and storage.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am 3TB's Blue This was working flawlessly up to the point of when it was dropped 2' feet from the floor and after that it just stopped working. One can hear it spinning and the light continues to blink as if it wishes to fully "engage", but now the drive is fully "divorced" when plugged into the computer. Oh, well, I guess the user must be extremely careful to try to avoid, "when accidents do happen." I do wonder why this is no longer available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the few HDD with a metal case I like having a predominately metal case (the bottom is plastic), much better than the all plastic version of this drive. It's the same weight as the plastic version, but I talked myself into thinking it would be more durable for travel (no, I don't frisbee my HDD). The data transfer speed is good, and it is bus powered. Another benefit - it's a perfect size to stuff into a safe deposit box for offsite backups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast for a portable drive I bought two of these drives for work with two hard cases so they can be safely transported. I used one to duplicate my main work drive with no problem. It was remarkably fast. Especially compared to the regular WD Passport and most desktop externals. The build and construction of the casing is solid. You will not go wrong. I am buying two more for my home office.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would by this product again and again. I have several of these My Passport hard-drives in 1, 2 & 3 GB. First started purchasing them in 2013 and I use them constantly and they have never failed me. Great product and very reliable, fast and easy to use. I buy them as well as 90% of my other tech stuff from B & H because their price are fair and their staff is professional & knowledgeable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For Expanding My xBox One Storage Priced right and received as promised this WD external hard drive was very easy to connect to my xBox using the supplied USB 3 cable. Plug it in, turn on the xBox, the xBox recognized it and asks to format it. Say yes... Done! Nice and easy. Seems sturdy. Hope it lasts but it has 3 year warranty if it doesn't.
