They say that first impressions are very important, and that’s the case here with the Western Digital’s latest My Passport Ultra drive; from the sleek look of the device to its usability, this drive does not disappoint.
Whilst already familiar with past renditions of the WD storage devices such as My Book and My Cloud, which I’ve found to be reliable and easy-to-use; I’ve yet to use a portable storage drive from them. Past experiences with this brand have set high expectations.
Upon unboxing the device, the slim photo sized of the drive is a welcome sight, as is the metallic / white two-tone look. As with many of the portable storage products in market these days, there is a tendency to go with either an all metallic or a solid colour outer-casing, the two tone white and gold (also comes in grey and black) makes a welcome change. It is one that you’d want to leave on your coffee table plugged in just to show off to your friends, and it’s also nice looking enough to have in your handbag.
Holding it in my palm, it feels a little hollow on the metallic part, this however, is just a minor gripe as it doesn’t take away the stellar quality of the drive itself.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
