For the 3TB The old version was Model #WDBBKD0030BBK-NESN and this new version is Model # WDBYFT0030BBK-WESN.
I researched if there are any differences, so here is what I came up with...
• High Capacity Available - Up to 4TB (The older model when released had up to 3TB capacity, up until a 6/28/16 release of a short lived 4TB model)
• Testing suggests slightly faster data transfer rate
• Now available in 6 colors.
Same as Old Model Nothing Changed
• Automatic local and cloud backup
• Optional 256-bit AES hardware encryption
• Comes in same 4 colors, they still offer black, blue, red and white (+ yellow and orange)
• USB 3.0 connectivity
• Formatted for Windows, reformatting required for Mac
• Same operating temperature
• USB 3.0 up to 5 Gb/s (max) / USB 2.0 compatible up to 480 Mb/s (max)
• Operating temperature: 5°C to 35°C / Non-op. temperature: –20°C to 65°C
• Introduction of odd shape to part of the new casing
• Round corners are now replaced with sharp/pointy edges
• Fingerprints and scratching more visible on new model
• Some colors may be too bright for some, and previous version berry, became brighter red (note this con is highly subjective)
• Overall size of new model is not smaller. (Actually a tiny bit bigger, about 1.5 mm bigger)
• 1TB weight went a bit up from 0.34 lbs to 0.37 lbs, 2TB ,3TB & 4 TB weight went a bit up too from 0.50 lbs to 0.54 lbs
• Warranty dropped down from 3 Years to 2 Years
• My Passport hard drive
• USB 3.0 cable
• WD Backup™, WD Security™ and WD Drive Utilities™ software
• Quick install guide
Bottom Line - They are pretty similar, differences are mostly aesthetic, so get what is cheaper. (Unless you like one casing/shape over the other, or care enough about the loss of 1 additional year of warranty on the new 2016 model).
Doubt I will ever buy another WD product again.
Look for another option.
**FYI, WD if you are reading this, I did try your support and after troubleshooting and determining your drive was faulty, the response was pretty much, "return where you bought it, sorry about your luck, if you want to contact our data recovery team, you can, have a nice day."
I already have a case number.
Top reviews from other countries
I have successfully registered the product in Western Digital website, which guarantees the authenticity of the product.
the plastic quality isn't as great as the "my passport ULTRA" series but it's good and you may want to buy a case. cable length seemed adequate. Copy speeds average was greater than 60 mbps on USB 3.0 port
Overall a great product at a bargain price
I had purchased this product in August 2018 when My Lenovo HDD after gruesome usage got its data cable pin damaged.
Now, after 3 months of excruciating usage of this HDD, here are my reviews: -
1) The WD HDD is amazing. The apps it has ( that comes inbuilt with the drive) are helpful. Apps like - WD Utilities and WD password manager. WD utilities app includes WD Drive's status check and scans your drive applications. WD Password manager helps you set up a password for your drive which is helpful if your friends constantly ask for your drive day in and day out.
2) The Drive is sturdy and has a pleasing design. Not great design but soothing to eyes design.
3) The drive is durable with the depth of usage you want. I have used this drive in varying climatic conditions ( Climates - Heavy Rainfall, extreme summer, cold environment, humid environment).
1) The drives' data cable is a bit let down considering the drive is of 3TB. This much high capacity drive should be given with more flexible data cable so that it is easier to use in day-to-day life.
2) The drive is of 3TB and gives you 2.73 TB after formatting.
3) The speed of copying from drive to the system is a bit slow but it depends on other factors also.
Note - The drive is good for entry level High capacity people who are making a change from 1 TB or 2 TB to 3 TB HDD sections. This will be worth money you are going to spend.
