    Not so Ultra. Update 2/23/14 – Okay fellow Amazon shoppers. I’m caving in to some of the comments that have been posted on my review and upping my star rating to four stars. Reason being that the price of this storage drive keeps fluctuating so much that it’s often a better deal than other, lesser drives out there. I’ve also edited my review a bit to accommodate that. The drive itself has been working like a champ for me so far and I’ve got no complaints there. However, I’m still holding off one star due to most of the reasons I stated in my original review. The WD Smartware included software is still garbage despite recent updates/patches, and I stick to my story that the packaging is misleading to the non-technical.I had been using a Seagate FreeAgent Go 640GB portable drive for about three years now, and wanted something with some more space and higher transfer speeds. I purchased this drive for it’s beefy 2 TB of storage space and speedier USB 3.0 interface.Out of the…

    How to format on your Mac – A nice external hard drive be sure to get the best price. This is a nice drive be sure to click through each of the storage amounts because of the time of writing this review the 500 GB was only $10 less than the 1 TB and doubling your space for $10 is a no-brainer (Also be sure to click through the different colors as the prices vary for the same storage size for example the time of writing this review the black and blue 2 TB hard drives were $20 less than the red 2 TB hard drive). I never use backup software so I won’t comment on that. I’m on a Mac and time machine does it for me but even when I was a Windows user I would just format the hard drive and use it to store my files. I also recommend doing just one partition as personally I think when I get into multiple partitions it gets confusing as to where I put what and then you will run out of space on one partition while having ample on the other just use folders.If you’re a Mac user setting this hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps…

    Incredibly spacious little hard drive Update 12 No 2013: Needed a slight update to my review because my original claim that is cheaper is no longer true. Prices change, so do compare them before buying.My Passport Ultra is a fast drive. I’ve had several USB3 drives over the years and they are all real fast. If you need to transfer huge amount of data quickly, like 100+GBs, USB3 is the way to go. In terms of hardware, I don’t have any complaints.Oh the case looks pretty sleek too. No power cable required. You can use the USB cable with USB2 ports also, with the speed downgraded of course.- Bundle Software -1. WD Drive Utilities – Provides some utilities services to check status, test functionality and reformatting.2. WD Security – Enables you to set password to the drive3. WD SmartWare Pro – This handles the auto-backup. It’s for Windows only but Mac users can just use Time…
