The WD My Passport Ultra Anniversary Edition is features a beautiful aluminum radial design casing, and a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 plug. Compatible with both Windows and Mac, the device has a storage capacity of 2TB, and has a reported transfer rate (USB 3.0) of up to 5GB/s. The portable hard drive comes in at H 0.74 in. x D 4.33 in. x W 3.15 in. It’s a bit hefty at half a pound, but not as bothersome as I thought it would be.

Like most portable drives, the WD My Passport Ultra is easy to use. Just plug it it and its ready to go.

All in all, the My Passport Ultra Anniversary Edition is a good looking, high capacity portable hard drive. It’s not as light as I would have liked, but makes up for it with the aluminum design and performance. So if you are in the market for a handy, easy to carry storage, I recommend you take a look at this one.
