We’ve been fans of WD’s My Passport portable hard drives for years. These drives are a great companion for your Ultrabook where hard drive space is limited and are extremely reliable as well. WD’s latest iteration of the drive is the My Passport Ultra, which is a USB 3.0 portable hard drive. They were nice enough to send us over their Metal Edition, which has a very sexy Aluminum design.

Let’s take a look at the My Passport Ultra Metal Edition and see what it can do!
