My Passport Ultra Review

One of the most frequent questions asked is  ‘What Hard Drive is the best?’ You probably already know that most Xbox One games require a massive amount of storage space and now more then ever with games getting bigger and need installing on the internal hard drive whether you have the 500GB or 1TB version of the console

So of course you will need a extremal Hard Drive at some point in the near future. Let me tell you more about the My Passport Ultra.

The My Passport Ultra is available in four attractive colors and 500 GB, 1 TB, 2 TB and 3 TB capacities, My Passport Ultra features USB 3.0 compatibility and you can power up your My Passport Ultra without using the old bulky power cord and plug this is super important for myself and many others. next you might ask is the price of these? Well The 500GB is £49, the 1TB £65 and the 2TB £99 – not bad prices in eyes.


The 2tb version gives up to room for around 50* Xbox One games (depending on size) and up to 250* Xbox 360 games, Perfect for the digital gamer in my eyes. Of course if you don’t plan to use this for the Xbox and need it for the PC or Mac instead. It has a ton of other features. What I really love about Western Digital Passport models are they are compact. small and just easy. They really understand what a gamer wants it also sits perfectly next to your Xbox One console.

In fact it’s so compact and small and perfect to carry around let me tell you the size and weight. The Height of this little thing is just 0.83 Inches and the depth is also just 4.33 Inches along with the width being 3.21 Inches and the weight is an Incredible 0.50 pounds Let’s talk next about accessories something you might not talk about much when you say hard drive.

    I own 3 of these 2x2TB’s and 1 320GB one. I only use One on the Xbox but so far it has been stellar had no issues with it and has never let me down. I don’t expect it will let me down either as WD are pretty decent even on PC Hard Drives 🙂
