WD’s My Passport 5TB USB hard drive review

WD’s My Passport external 2.5-inch USB 3.0 hard drive is now available in up to 5TB in capacity, which means you can stuff even more data in your pocket than with the last iteration. At $150 retail, you pay $30 more than the previous top-capacity 4TB unit, but that’s the same price as its Seagate Expansion rival, as well as one-fifth the price per gigabyte of SSDs. 

Design and specs

The 5TB My Passport measures 4.22 x 2.95 x 0.75 inches and weighs 0.46 pounds. It’s also available in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities, with the 1TB and 2TB versions being thinner at 0.44 inches and weighing only 0.27 pounds. All capacities carry a three-year warranty. (Note that if this drive is like other WD My Passports, you’ll likely find a decent discount if you shop around.)

The My Passport ships in three hues: black, blue, and red. That’s three fewer than the last iteration, which also came in white, orange, and yellow. I miss the other colors, and so will anyone who was rotating them daily for backups. That might actually be no one, but… 

WD includes a nice suite of software tools for backing up, encrypting data, and taking care of formatting and other drive-related chores. 

Performance

While the WD My Passport is affordable and offers lots of capacity, it’s not a top performer. CrystalDiskMark rates it as improved over the My Passport X, but that didn’t bear out in our real-world copies. Overall it was average at these, but for some reason, the drive was very slow in the small file and folder write test.

A worthy choice for most users

The WD My Passport now offers as much capacity as its leading competitor, is attractive, and comes with a nice software bundle. If speed is paramount, buy something else—ideally an SSD. If it isn’t, then the My Passport is a more than worthy product for the average user.

IS YOUR LAPTOP BEGGING FOR A HARDWARE UPGRADE?

If your laptop is getting older and slower with time, then you must be thinking to replace it with a new one. But buying a new laptop can be a high expense, especially if you want a high-end laptop. A high-end laptop can burn a hole in your pocket. This article will help you to know if you can upgrade your laptop and make it faster and look better. Just think if your current device provides you the things which you need then why pay for the new one.

Think about what can you do to get the peak performance of your device. Can you buy some extra RAM, hard-drive, SD card, and other things to enhance the performance?

My Laptop is Working Sluggishly

If you experience slower performance and lags while using multiple applications, then you should do various things to enhance the speed and multitasking of your PC. The primary hardware that is responsible for speed is the RAM. It can be upgraded according to the laptop’s compatibility. To know the maximum RAM capacity of your laptop, follow the instructions given below.

  1. Hit the Start/Window Key on your laptop keyboard.
  2. Type ‘system information’ and then click on ‘system information.’
  3. Look for “system model” and check the model and brand name.
  4. Type the company name and model name on Google search.
  5. Open the first website.
  6. Check the maximum RAM of your laptop.

Now you can upgrade your laptop’s RAM accordingly to its maximum limit. Go to a computer hardware shop and buy a RAM that is compatible with your laptop’s maximum limit. For example, if you have the maximum limit of 8 GB RAM and the preinstalled RAM is 2 GB, then you can only install 6 GB more.

Remember the RAM will increase the performance of your laptop. But the performance is not solely dependent on your RAM. The processor and graphics card also matter.

Sources :- HARDWARE UPGRADE

Check How Much Free Storage Space You Have Left

If your hard drive is used more than 60%, then you should make some changes to it. Delete unwanted files, delete junk files, and defrag your hard disk to increase the free space in the hard drive. A stuffed hard drive can cause a severe slow down in performance. If space is used more than 60 %, then buy an external hard drive and transfer the large sized files into it. A one TB portable hard drive doesn’t costs much. Some laptops also have the feature to upgrade their primary hard disk.

Battery Doesn’t Last Longer Than a Few Minutes

A bad battery doesn’t require you to replace the whole laptop. Spend a little amount and buy a new battery. Every laptop has the feature of replacing the battery. No need to waste your money on a new laptop if you can fix your current one.

Super Smash Bros: Melee Gamer Quits Tournament Match

Every gaming enthusiast has to formulate specific strategies to overcome with the challenges presented by opponents, but as per the recent incident in the Battle of BC 3 tournament a player chooses to quit in the middle of the tournament match.

It is for sure that a player would choose to ensure his win by any means possible, but the gaming community seems to avoid any unfair practices which would reduce the respect and gaming spirit amongst the players.But in the new BC 3 tournament, a very unusual scene was observed by the audience in the stand who were watching two players competing amongst each other in a duel of Sumer Smash Bros., and suddenly in the middle of the ongoing match, one of the players choose to quit and left the stage.

Such an unexpected quitting between the match occurred due to the strategy used by Alejandro “Chango” Gastelum who chose to frustrate his competitor by using the unique evading move of Jigglypuff and not letting the opponent to conduct closed combat.

As a result, the entire gaming community was very disappointed and annoyed with the strategy used by the Chango which led to the quitting of his opponent in the middle of the match.

During the Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament match, a duel was set between Fauxhebro and Chongo, but the end result of this match was not at all as everyone expected. Chango selected the Jigglypuff strategy in which he did not initiate in any of the close combats instead Chango chose the floating ability of Jigglypuff which helps in evading any incoming attack.

Ultimately Fauxhebro got so fed up from the childish act of Chongo that he snitched out the cord of his controller and left his Ice Climber character standing still at the corner of the screen.

Sources : –Super Smash Bros: Melee Gamer Quits Tournament Match

Prior to leaving the stage, Fauxhebro waited for some time for Chango to play in a fair manner, but Chango was predetermined to run along with his strategy, and in the end, Fauxhebro left the stage with utter disappointment.

Chango managed to dealt initial damage to Fauxhebro character, and as soon as the damage bar for Chango character rose, he executed his strategy to run away from any further damage.

Clearly Chango was afraid of receiving any damage and choose to run away from the close combat, and as a result, he had substantially more health in compression to Fauxhebro. So there was no reason for Chango to indulge in a fight with the opponent and stayed out of the range of Ice Climber.

This incident has raised a question amongst the community members, as to what strategies are legal and what strategies should be banned from any tournaments further on. But it is confirmed that some more strict and vigilant rules should be formulated for players to maintain some moral conduct during a match.

It is quite controversial to highlight any specific doings, but it is not unfair to use the special move of a particular character if it is already the part of the game, and this argument is suggested by all those who consider that Chango was not wrong but instead used his skills to win the game by frustrating his opponent.
