Product information

Ultra-compact and ultra-fast, WD's My Passport Ultra is the perfect storage companion for the demanding on-the-go user.

  • WD SmartWare Pro software automatically backs up your files, both locally and online to your personal Dropbox account. Scheduled back ups and the option to choose between file or folder backup means the WD Ultra works around you.

  • Connecting WD My Passport Ultra to a USB port will give you fast transfer speeds, at up to 3 times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 will also work with USB 2.0 ports, so you can still connect to older machines.

  • WD My Passport Ultra is just half an inch thick, making it easy to slip into a bag or even a pocket for easy carrying. The robust enclosure protects the durable drive inside that has been designed with shock tolerance and long-term reliability in mind.

  • The WD Windows 8 app makes navigating content stored on your My Passport Ultra easy, with content automatically displayed and organised so you can easily locate your favourite files.

  • WD Security allows you to set up password protection and hardware encryption for your drive, to help keep your files private.

  • WD Drive Utilities keep things running smoothly, with tools diagnostics, drive timer, registration and more.

Q & As


WD My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive, USB 3.0, 1TB 4.8 5 8 8
Good value portable hard drive A lot of storage for such a compact hard drive. The plastic case on first glance seems a bit flimsy but having used it for a few weeks I'm becoming more confident that it will provide enough protection for day to day use. The read and write transfer speeds are very satisfactory. Good all-rounder. 30 March 2014
Brilliant! Slim, attractive design, fast and very quiet. Just plug it in and it works. Great product. 25 February 2014
Portable Hard Drive I bought this as a USB3 external drive to back up my lap top. It simply plugged into the laptop (windows7) and installed the drivers and was ready to go. It has worked perfectly up to now, without any hitches. 19 February 2014
So far, so good. I wish I had this a year ago, before I lost everything on my computer! Very easy to use; just plug in and go. 1TB gives me so much space; probably more than I will ever use. Compared to others with similar storage space, it offers better value for money. A minor point: it would be more useful to have a hard-sided case rather than a soft pouch. 18 February 2014
Excellent drive for Sony TV I bought this for recording from my Sony Bravia KDL46W905A TV. The disc drive is powered by a single USB socket on the TV and works perfectly. There's no need for messy "power booster" USB cables. The drive is very quiet and very cool in operation. I intend to construct a bracket to mount the drive on the back of the TV as, unfortunately, WD don't sell such a thing. 18 February 2014
Very Ronseal I am pleased with my purchase. I use it as my Mac's Time Machine. Reformatting for Mac use was easy. It is pleasingly fast; probably as fast as my firewire drives. Some may not like the flashing led but I site the drive behind my screen so am not distracted by it. Ideally I would have liked another USB port so as I could daisy-chain the drive with others but this is probably not an issue for most users.Overall a good purchase and with a 3yr guarantee I can recommend without reservation. 03 February 2014
Excellent Hard drive This hard drive matched my Panasonic Blu ray recorder without any problems. It set up the hard disk in no time and formatted it. It is fully linked to my recorder, and is fab for moving series to storage. 21 January 2014
how do they fit it all in! excellent piece of kit at a really good price, if you have a need for one, get one! 02 January 2014
