    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.

    Somewhat easy to use

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

    This is our second WD backup drive. It is small and easy to use. I am not crazy about the software screen while backing up as there is no progress monitor. Hard to tell where it is or when it is done. I do not like the "Enable Backup" vs "Disable Backup" buttons. How about just Start Backup and Stop Back Up? IMHO

    Good Back-up

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

    Simple to use and convenient. These hard drives are so small they serve as my daily backups that I take offsite every night. I have one for everyday of the week. It's got so much storage capacity you can use it for other storage too. And, it comes with only a small amount of unwantedware that doesn't seem to automatically load up and get in the way.

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

    My Dell computer was 7 years old; it was important to have all the information backed up. The computer program-XP-was no longer being updated by Microsoft and that could cause problems. The computer has slowed down but still works well. My new laptop should arrive soon. i do not plan to load everything on it but there are some things that are important. Will know how things go when my laptop gets here. The help at Staples to correct a camera set up on the back-up was excellent. Thanks to Mr. Antoine for his expertise.
