WD My Passport Pro 4TB Thunderbolt Portable Storage Review

Final Thoughts




The WD My Passport Pro is one of the better Thunderbolt storage solutions for those that want top-notch capacity. With the unit being bus powered, it takes the pain away from carrying around a large power brick and adds to the portability of the unit. On the other side of things, the WD Passport Pro is a hefty unit and does take up quite a bit of space for a portable solution. Of course, being an OS X storage solution, the Passport Pro is Time Machine compatible and should allow for rather quick backups.


Performance of the Passport Pro was quite good, touching 240 MB/s read and write in our AJA testing. Over on Black Magic, we found the drive capable of 211 MB/s read and 194 MB/s write.


The WD My Passport Pro in the 4TB capacity carries an MSRP of $429.99 with a three-year warranty.
