    3TB My Passport Wireless Pro USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted It to be. I have a been along time user of the Seagate Wireless Plus, but this solution has not been maintained well by Seagate and as such is quite far behind software wise. Additionally the hardware was under powered when it first came out and of course that stands true today. The WD Wireless Pro is what I had always hoped from a wireless hard drive. Fast, efficient, portable and useable. I can run multiple streams from he onboard Plex server, store seemly endless numbers of RAW photos form my Canon 80D, and work on projects that are just too big to be hauling around with me on my MacBook Pro. All while I'm sitting on a plane!! I love this drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product - Important information I'm a professional photographer and this unit has improved my on-the-road workflow. I use it to create a WiFi network that allows a graphic designer and an editor to access what I've shot minutes after loading the images onto the drive. It also will automatically ingest (move or copy) files from an SD card or USB drive plugged into its onboard ports. NOTE: This is NOT a low-tech solutions for users who are hand-held through the use of computers or other modern technology devices. If you're not savvy enough or don't have access to some who is - you'll probably be quite frustrated. But then, that is one of the things that separates thedilettante from the professional!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Wireless Drive, Bad Plex Server This drive works great as a portable media drive. It's very fast and the WD software is mature, complete, yet simple. The Plex Media Server (which is the whole reason I bought this drive) is not so much... I have been running Plex at home on an actual server for years and therefore was a big Plex fan already. When I saw the press release for this device, I ordered one immediately. A portable Plex Media Server would be perfect for traveling where internet bandwidth is limited. The CPU on this portable NAS is very slow, and causes a lot of performance issues for Plex Clients. Media analysis is painfully slow, taking days for a large library. I was able to tune the Plex settings to maximize performance, which was just enough to make Plex usable, but now it won't play half my media. I keep getting offset errors in the Plex Media Server log. There is no pattern to which files play and which do not, they are all encoded with the same Video and Audio codecs in the same containers. I have already spent several days trying to get this working and am almost at the point of sending it back. The WD software allows quick and perfect playback of my media collection, so I may hang on to it, but the whole reason I bought this product was to run Plex. Disappointed...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So So I have very mixed feelings about this device. On the one hand it's designed to be a perfect data backup and storage system for photographers/videographers on the road. On the other hand, there are a number of programming issues with this device that make it unreliable. First, I purchased two of these drives to take with me on a documentary I was shooting in Africa. I didn't want to have to rely on a laptop for backing up footage every night. These drives seemed the perfect solution. Initial tests seemed quite promising. I tested the quick backup functionality where you plug in your SD, press the button on the side, and your files are automatically backed up. I even tested trying to download the same SD card twice and I found that the WD Drive correctly identified that the files had already been downloaded and it did not download them a second time. This all seemed well and good. My first few days of shooting went fine and the backups seemed to go okay. Then, after a couple days, I backed up an SD card and I could not find the files. I was very confused. I tried a number of backups and every time the files did not show up. I dug around for a while and found the files put into older SD backup folders. I can't figure out why the SW thought that the new files (with new dates from a newly formatted card) belonged to an older folder. Luckily the older files where given an new name and not simply overwritten by the new files. This seems like a bug in the software that needs to be fixed before the SD import feature can be considered reliable. After the debacle with the SD Import feature, I started manually copying the contents of SD cards to new folders I created myself. This seemed to work okay except for two issues. First is that the drive gives you no status on the progress of the file copies. This is very frustrating. When you use the SD Import feature, the blue lights flash and progress with the download, and the iPhone app shows the progress. File copies show no pro

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice External hard drive A External Hard Drive like this one is what I've been wanting for a long time. I always wanted to get a mobile storage device that I could put my Memory Cards in and back up my camera images when I'm on vacation. This filled the bill. The only thing I don't like about the drive is its not easy to get connected to your devices. Maybe because the instructions aren't easy enough or because I'm not a super tech user, I found it difficult to get my devices connected. After what seemed like a long time, I finally figured out how to connect my phone and tablet to it thru WiFi, and it was easy getting my notebook and desktop connected by cable, but I still haven't figured out if it's possible to connect my computers through WiFi. The drive seems very fast connecting through a USB3 connection, taking what seemed like a short time to back up over 100 GB of images. I admit, I haven't tried wireless transfer or Memory Card transfer yet. So far, except for the difficulty in making wireless connections, I really like this drive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from need this in the field... the manual came inside the drive itself and good thing too because the quick setup guide didn't go into detail. it basically tells you to download the app and setup the drive through the mobile app. i did that and it didn't work at all. it wouldn't copy the files from the sd card. so i reset the drive and setup again this time through computer and browser. finally, it worked and has been working fine since. copy times are pretty fast and the indicators are the blue led lights. when all 4 are lit your content has been copied over. it does say in the manual in order to view content through the mobile app the content must be synced to the drive...i'm guessing that means set it all up the first time by way of computer and browser but i could be wrong. it seems better to do it that way anyway as the dashboard makes it clearer and easier to see and change all options to your liking. i'd give it 5 stars if it came with the case for transport. but i got a cheap neoprene case at the dollar store...problem solved. i'm using this in the field with the ipad and haven't had any problems so far viewing and transferring files from the drive through wi-fi. this helps a lot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good device, just need to adjust my expectations It works as advertised, however I just need to adjust my expectations. Without getting into tech details, here is the summary of my experience after using it for a about a year: 1. It is capable of holding up large video files (I did up to 4GB each); 2. It can automatically transfer files from SD card plugged into built-in card reader, however I need to manually eject the card from the web or app interface afterward to avoid error message; 2-1. It can automatically transfer files CF cards via card reader USB connected, again with manual eject afterward 3. It is a normal external hard drive when connected to a computer via USB cable; 4. It can pass through Wi-Fi connection so I can browse the copied photos and share photos to the cloud at the same time; 5. It can stream video can show photos to mobile devices but slow; 6. It can run up to 10 hours on one charge provided if I do not stream videos from it; 7. All in all, it is a good device on the road to back up photos and videos, so I can free up memory cards. Just need to be patient, it is slower when configured to longer batter life instead of performance. Nice features I liked: 1. Built-in SD card reader; 2. Allowing USB stick or external card reader via USB; 3. Rechargeable battery for up to 6 hours (based on my experience) 4. Pass through Wi-Fi 5. Added layer of protection to block disk mount when plugged into a computer 6. Video streaming over Wi-Fi (it is slow) Nicer feather I wished: 1. SSD storage instead of spinning HD 2. More RAM and faster CPU for better performance 3. smaller size 4. Add protection jacket say IP67, e.g. similar to Lifeproof case 5. Add Solar panel to the case

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and does what it promises. Great and does what it promises. I have used the simply plug in an SD card auto load feature and so far, it has worked very nicely. Have had no issues with a wifi connection either (to a Surface Pro 4, btw).
