MY PASSPORT ULTRA 1TB PORTABLE STORAGE

My Passport Ultra 1TB portable hard drive review

 

One of the things that brings headaches when you’re working online is when the memory storage of your laptop or any device has come to reach a maximum point where it’s almost full and your device slows down or doesn’t have enough space to save your incoming data.

It’s disappointing and all you can do is scratch your head when you get a ‘storage full’ message. Only means you’ve used up all the memory of your device and it’s time now for a backup. Good thing we’re always ready and we have our WD My Passport Ultra portable hard drive on the side.

This is actually the 7th generation of the My Passport line. What we have right here is the My Passport Ultra 1TB that delivers an easier automatic backup experience plus, a hardware-based encryption for security and higher capacities, which is great, huh!

For us, My Passport Ultra is in the league of the best partner coming from WD for storing and backing up your files. Although we really want a big capacity volume like the My Passport Ultra 3TB, we’re definitely sold with 1TB, just to kick start our backup needs.
