Recent reviews:

WD Released these updated variants of the super’s 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and a new 3TB. (For the 2TB The old variant was Model WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN and new variant is Model WDBBKD0020BBK-NESN)I researched in differences, so here is what I came up with.. ProsOverall Size of new model is a tiny bit smaller ( see picture for comparison of dimensions on each new model andold model )Higher Capacity Available – Now Up to 3TB andthe older model only up to 2TB capacityOptional 256-bit AES hardware encryptionNow available in whiteSame as Old Model Nothing ChangedWeight is the same exact at 0. 50 lbs ( 0. 23 kg )auto local and cloud backupComes in 4 colors ( they still offer black, and blue, red became berry and they replaced titanium for white on the newer models)USB 3. 0 connectivityFormatted for Windows, reformatting obliged for Mac3-year restricted warrantySame Data move rate and Operating temperatureUSB 3. 0 up to 5 Gb/s (max) / USB 2. 0 up to 480 Mb/s (max)Operating temperature: 5 C to 35 C / Non-op. Temperature: & 8211;20 C to 65 CConsNone so far… Bottom Line – they’re pretty alike so get what is cheaper, unless you need/purchase the 3TB they never had one beforeNew Model WDBBKD0020BBK-NESNOld Model WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN$.

This model is the new generation of the many My Passport drives I have owned or bought for clients. They proved dependable and good performers. They have incrementally improved with each new generation. BOTTOM LINE (for the impatient):The new model is a bit faster than last year’s and adds a 3TB model. This My Passport super has a more nice satiny finish and there’s now a white model to fit in better for Mac users. Otherwise it is nearly same to the older model. If these differences aren’t important for you, you may want to get this or last year’s My Passport super based on which is least costly. You will have an excellent drive in either case. If you want to have more details, read on.. SUMMARY:The My Passport USB 3. 0 drives are easy to use and come with reasonable software tools and backup/sync software. There are Mac variants of WD tools on this drive also as the Windows tools. The newer software may also be downloaded for older models. I do not use this software, however lots of people do as basic backup and/or sync with your WD MyPassport. Pluses:+ This drive works good with Linux or Mac out of the box. It performs best when reformatted with a native file system for the respective operating system. + This generation adds a 3TB model to the 500GB, 1TB and 2TB sizes in last variants. + This drive is faster than the last generation. Up to 25% faster in benchmarks, however just obvious in practical use. + The form factor of the new drive is nearly exactly the same as before and they have a nice satin like finish.

I bought it for my Xbox One, had just paid off my preorders for Rise of the Tomb Raider and AC: Syndicate, and was already with only 40GB left on my 400GB console. So I researched and researched to find the right one. I found this one and was wanting to take the chance. IT WAS SO EASY, just plugged it in, formatted it, and I was good to go. Greatly suggested .
