    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.

    I have been using a flash drive to backup my Family Tree, but now that I have the Passport drive I am really satisfied with it.

    Using this drive as insurance against computer problems. If my computer crashes, I won't have lost my work. I'm using it as a Time Machine backup. Having only just purchased the product, I can say so far, so good.

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

    I have an older WD passport hard drive and was pleasantly surprised by the Ultra's sleek, slim and light weight design. This drive will be used by my employees who will use it in various situations where space is a premium. As far as the quality of the drive? I haven't used it long enough to comment on this device but have had reliable service from my previous WD drives and expect no less from this one.
