Engadget Summary

No stranger to the portable hard drive space, Western Digital continues to impress with their My Passport Ultra, offering USB 3.0 speeds in a compact package. Popular Photography said that the My Passport Ultra was "as fast as any other portable drive we've tested" and PC World Australia thought it was "the fastest USB 3.0 drive we’ve tried out." With the drive being built with portability in mind, CNET found the drive "very compact and light," while Laptop Magazine called it "small and attractive." If you're a road warrior who needs some extra storage space that won't weigh your bag down, the My Passport Ultra offers a speedy and compact solution to your mobile workspace.
