The silver, 4TB 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 WDBEZW0040BSL-NESN reviews

    4TB My Passport Ultra Metal Edition (Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient storage 4 TB of storage (more than my computer) in a compact, attractive housing. No separate power supply required since it is USB powered. Does not clutter up your desk. A minor negative is the brightness of the white LED. It could almost double as a night light (I just fold a 3x5 card and set it to block the light when the computer and I sleep). I use it with File History set for daily backup. My WD My Book died after just over a year when it was used as a continuous backup. This one has only been in use for about 2 weeks and I'm hoping for better results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I already had several WD hard drives, all working great. This one seems to be just as good. The only thing I was sort of expecting this time was a USB-C cable (3.1) instead of the standard USB, given that the new laptops will likely have USB C.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product It's good as long as I don't leave it plugged in too long. I use a PowerBook and I have to force eject it if left in for several hours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oozes quality This is the silver version which I thought might match my MacBook Pro but it doesn't really as it has a slight blue cast to it. This doesn't worry me though as I didn't buy it as a matching accessory. I bought it because I have a camera which produces 50mb RAW files and 10mb jpegs. So I wanted plenty of capacity, which this has by the bucket load. My preference was for a 4TB disk as I have read bad press on the 3Tb ones in general, not specifically from WD. I also have an older 2TB version in blue which is looking worn after 2 years of abuse in my bag but I didn't notice this until I put the new one alongside, so I have the same expectations of this one. They are both sturdy looking units and the metal casing on all but the base makes these a must have if you need your portable drive to be rugged. I can't fault the performance, with a USB 3 connection it zips through file transfers pretty quickly. Not quite as quick as my thunderbolt drive but out on the road speed isn't really my priority, reliability is. If this unit is as reliable as my 2tb one I will be very very happy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total Failure Well, I can understand why this has been discontinued, the most unreliable drive I have ever purchased by WD. Drive failed after less than 6 months. As this was my primary iMac Time Machine backup drive this could have been catastrophic. As it is I had to spend $200 and 2 days having the drive rebuilt so I could get my data. Now very concerned with the half-dozen smaller capacity WD drives I've recently purchased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny! This was purchased to hold the massive library of 4K videos and 20 to 50 Mp photos I will be taking with two new cameras I have preordered but have not yet received, as of the writing of this review. But in the meantime it makes me feel like a Bond villain. So I got THAT goin' for me, which is nice.
