How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Western Digital My Passport portable drive may not be the fastest drive available, and it may not have swappable docks like the gdgt Must-have Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex. But it does offer something you'll find in few other portable drives: capacities of up to 2TB. Like most recent portable drives, it's also USB 3.0-compatible, so you'll get better speeds when you pair it with a newer laptop. If you need maximum capacity on the run, this is the one to get.
