WD My Passport Ultra USB-C External Drive – Tested & Reviewed


Seems like you can never have enough disk space, but cloud storage is so darn slow. Enter external hard drives. An old tech that’s still darn useful. Like the capacious Western Digital My Passport Ultra in 2TB and 4TB and featuring USB-C connectivity.

Tech expert Dave Taylor of got his hands on a 2TB My Passport Ultra USB-C (in blue!) and ran it through some tests and benchmarks to see just how fast it was. You can see the results in this review; it’s a pretty solid addition to your computing lineup, whether you’re Mac, PC or Linux.

Check it on Amazon:

  1. Aside from USB-C and more compact+solid design, is there any difference in performance with the standard version of the 2019 My Passport?

  2. How do you format it? I want to buy a WD my passport Ultra USB C 4Tb for my MacBook Pro. However, I also own a windows and I want to be able to work with the same Hard Drive in both laptops. Would this Hard Drive work to do that? And how do I format it to do so?

  3. The ultra model is because it’s USB-C ? If I use it with a USB 3 port , then the wd passport will be as fast as the ultra model ? There a 30$ diff between the wd passport vs the wd passport ultra from amazon.ca

  4. That "read" test was not a read test at all, it was a copy test. The difference is, with a copy test the throughput is relying on the read speed of the source drive AND the write speed of the destination drive. A true realworld read test would be something like verifying a backup file or running a checksum validation (i.e. simply READing from an existing file already on the drive).

  5. I dont much care for your channel but in contrast with what's out there you should be well over 700k subs, if I'm honest

  6. To make it faster format it to APFS and I'm about too buy it today ! great video thanks 🙏 😊

  7. Just grabbed the 4tb version for use with my ipad, was curious if during the drive spinning up and winding down if it made what to me seems like an odd sound like a scraping noise?
    Just not sure if its the aluminum case and small size amplifying what is a normal noise I've just never noticed before.

  8. hey Dave! Nice Review! want to ask for comparison: i also edit h264 files footage video, which one you prefer WD my passport 2019 type C (is this 5400rpm?) or WD My Book USB 3.0 External Hard Drive 3.5 Inch – 4TB 
    (7200rpm) will change the cable with Micro B to Type C, I consider also between 5400-7200rpm
