    I had storage/performance problem on my laptop -- Too many pictures and .wav files (and other music files) stored on my hard drive; percentage use of the hard drive was very high, impacting laptop performance.

    I consulted the Staples tech staff and found that my options were a high capacity flash drive or a device like this one.

    I checked out what was available. The Passport device offered much more storage capacity than a high-capacity flash drive, and cost just a little bit more.

    So I went with the Passport. No regrets. Easy to use and install. File transfer was a snap. Results are improved laptop performance -- the Passport is slim and easy to carry around in the same case as the laptop, so it's fine from a space standpoint. If you have a similar problem, suggest you try this solution...

    Went to purchase and had to wait for the manager to get it. I read the advertisement as 1TB, and was given the 500GM instead for $10.00 less. Not very pleased to pay what I paid when for $10 more I could have twice the volume. Once I realized this issue, I was already home. The next day I went back to Staples to return it to get the 1TB. In any case whether I am rating the 500GB or the 1.0 TB the product would not autorun on Windows7. The instructions that come with it were less than acceptable. It is a 3 inch by 4 in bifold piece of paper with a picture of the unit on the front cover. On the inside it shows conecting the wire to the laptop, the Second picture with a number 2 shows the software installing itself and the 3rd picture with the 3 shows the information symbol, a book assume for help or going to the website. The website was just as helpless. There was no information clearly given for software not self extracting. Even after a reboot. The unit is going back to the store. My older passport has been very reliable. I am disappointed with this one as the PC will not recognize it, but recognizes all my other drives. I give it a 3 stars because it is a communication issue between WD and my HP Laptop.

    Comments about WD My Passport Ultra 500GB Portable Hard Drive:

    This portable hard drive is very easy to use and I like the software that comes with the drive. It was really nice also that they were on sale at Staples for a great price. The price was so great that I bought two of them and they are functioning perfectly.

    Comments about WD My Passport Ultra 500GB Portable Hard Drive:

    Got it for our daughter in college who has just WAY too many valuable files on her laptop she cannot afford to lose. Connected easily and worked like a charm. She did have to do a second backup for a couple of files that did not copy the first time. Lots of glitches outside the product can an do lead to that, and it's very common. I use WD drives whenever I have a choice and finding this one at Staples made a great buy at their price. I just recommended this same drive but in 2 TB size for a dear friend who does professional tax work and he is pleased as well. Great product, great deal.
