    WD Ultra Reviews

    4TB My Passport Ultra USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (White/Gold) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Drive is great, the software is not! I love WD backup drives and have 5 of them but the new backup software is garbage. The Smartware that WD once used was spot on and easy to use but not so for the new WD Backup software. It is not intuitive and is difficult to understand. To top it off the software is extremely slow and makes me think that the software is not responding properly. When I call for support I am directed to India and have a difficult time understanding the individual. Although the tech is very nice I can tell that he is just as frustrated as I because I don't understand him. Sorry to say that the backup software makes me want to turn to another product line.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Installation issues Upon connecting My Passport Ultra to my computer the software did not install as advertised. I had to install all 3 manually but only the backup software worked. I had to contact WD customer service to correct. They gave me a link to troubleshoot the problem but the troubleshooting results were not consistent with the instructions. Eventually I was able to troubleshoot and fix the problem myself. It appears that the drive is working OK but getting it to that point was a headache.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible connection to computer The old passports worked so well, this drive (after painstakingly being reformatted to work with a MAC) disconnects so easily to the point where you have to restart your computer. You also can eject the drive without a "force eject" that compromises the data. I regret purchasing this and would purchase the old style of passports, unfortunately B&H doesnt carry them anymore. Buyer beware.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best price anywhere Best price for this WD product anywhere, but the quality of the WD has diminished. I have never had one go bad and yet 2 of the last 3 I have bought have had problems. WD problem, B&H Service & prices the absolute best!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4TB Passport Arrived packed well and performed as expected. Software acceptable. Was not disappointed in performance or quality. Only draw back was unit had less than 4 TB. (3.5 TB) The 1 TB passport I am is full, so I got this for additional back-up. Would not purchase any other brand. Would have given 5 stars if storage was 4 TB.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SSD drive at a good price It's reasonably fast, rugged, and? compact. And I should add stable. I bought a G-Tech drive R series drive for 3 times the price and it proved to be a bust. Granted, I wouldn't want to stream audio of off the Passport but I bought it for storage and backup, and it's perfect for that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact external hard drive with no power cords We love these hard drives , they are so sleek and take up very little room on your desk. The added attraction of no more bulky power cords makes this a no brainer for our photography studio .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it should do Works fine as you would expect. It's a hard drive does nothing fancy, but it stores fine data.

    Does the included software (Backup and Encryption) work for Mac Users or are these Capabilities/Features lost when one formats the drive for Macs?
    Asked by: David G.
    According to the manual that comes with the drive, WD backup is Windows only, while WD Discovery, WD Drive Utilities and WD Security are both Windows and Mac (Mavericks through Sierra) compatible. WD Security implements password protection and 256-bit hardware data encryption. I have not verified this; I took it from the manual.
