Pat Seery takes the chair on this review which is the WD Passport Ultra 1TB White Gold Hard Drive Model WDBTLG0010BGD-WESN

Whats in the box ?

1TB Passport Ultra (White/Gold) Drive 1 USB 3.0 cable Manuals simple and the best way sure what more would you want in the packaging but check out the unboxing below if you missed it….

I own a few of the WD passport range in various sizes from 1tb like this one to 4TB drives It’s a good solid drive and very light. The 1 TB drive uses a thinner enclosure that measures 13.5 mm (0.53”) ) so easily packed in to a backpack for quick backups if you`re out doing some vidiography or photography. I’m not particularly enamoured with the new design aesthetic but at this moment in time the drive is fit for purpose.

This is a fast little drive. Read/Write times are good and the WD utilities that come on the drive give you disk management and security and also allow you to backup all your social media stuff directly to the drive pretty handy if you’re on social media alot and upload photos and video directly from your phone so you can now back them all up on to this nice discrete little drive and keep all your precious memories safe and secure.

Speaking of safe and secure there is locking software (AES-256 hardware encryption) that comes with the WD utilities but a word of warning here if you use this WRITE YOUR PASSWORD DOWN as even WD tell you in a warning that if you forget your password even they CANNOT recover your data so be forewarned.

Just like their predecessors, the new Western Digital My Passport Ultra drives are covered by a three-year limited warranty. The new drives are available from wd.com as well as from select retailers.
