    WD WDBFKT0030BGY-WESN reviews

    3TB My Passport Ultra USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black/Gray) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again This performs very well. Used for back-ups to store offsite so the small size comes in handy. I don't use much of the software that comes with the drive so can't comment on that. I have several other WD drives, performance and reliability have never been a problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT bootable! This is a well designed amazingly small package. However, I had some significant issues creating the partitions I needed - PLUS the WD My Passport disk is NOT bootable, sopmething not recealed in any of the ads, etc. I am an experienced computer builder and and a reasonably sophisticated user, so I don't believe these issues relate to my inadequacy. C'mon, Western Digital, please be much more honest about the limitations of the My Passport product!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could not use the included software I have 5 Passport Ultra drives and use the included Security and Utility software. However, this drive is NOT an Ultra and the WD software could not see it. I returned it an purchased an Ultra drive and the included software worked perfectly.
    Date published: 2017-07-19
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Goof machine, very short on User Instructions Needs detailed instructions for use. Mine had none,. I tried to do Mirror Image backup from Carbonite on to it for about 110 gigs of my laptop data. It did not do it. Short of calling WD there is no option to resolve this. I have reviewed the WD website based info and the FAQs. I can save normal backups easily, so the drive is working fine.
    Date published: 2017-02-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice external drive This is a really solid feeling external storage drive. Completely quiet. Extremely fast load speeds. Not exactly "plug n' play". If you have any installation problems/questions, Western Digital support is via emails directing you to related articles, sites, and fixes, but they do get the job done with a little diligence.
    Date published: 2018-07-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and works great I'm using it to store my Lightroom catalog and photos.� So far, after a few weeks, it is working fine.� �It was a little thicker than I was expecting, but that's not a problem!
    Date published: 2018-01-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from REALLY FAST Got this drive after ordering a Seagate Model, which was Dead on Arrival. I have always had success with WD drives and should not have strayed.
    Date published: 2017-06-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good case, can be improved Good case, could be made sturdier. It could also have a dedicated pocket for a USB flash drive
