WD is well known for its storage solutions, and the neat part about this drive is that it comes pre-formatted to work with your Mac, so you don't have to worry about doing that yourself — perfect if you're not totally confident doing things like that.

The My Passport Ultra is a very convenient drive to keep around as it's capacious yet still thin and light. That means you can keep it around your office without it taking up a bunch of space and easily tote it to and from different places in your laptop bag. You'll have a ton of space for photos, music, movies, documents, and whatever else you need to store with its 5TB capacity making it a great pickup for those with a laptop with low internal storage.

The drive can also serve as a good backup and a way to keep special files secure. Whether you want to just drag and drop precious files on there manually, use Time Machine on your Mac, or use the free WD Discovery software to manage its contents. You can password protect the drive, too, and it features 256-bit AES hardware encryption.

You can hook the drive up to your computer directly with USB-C to enjoy super-fast transfer speeds or use the included USB 3.0 adapter to plug it into an older machine.
