Western Digital My Passport Ultra 2 TB Review + Promo!

My favorite has always been Western Digital’s My Passport Portable Storage, so when I was asked to review their fastest and most high-tech model (I get to keep it afterwards yippekayay!), I immediately agreed. A girl can never have enough storage after all.

The other end is a standard USB plug, but it’s actually USB 3.0 so its default transfer mode is “SuperSpeed”. You’ll know it’s USB 3.0 when the port color is blue or if the initials SS are there. It’s capable of transferring up to 5GB per second, but that also depends on what’s connected to it.
