Performance (,2817,2407313,00.asp)
The My Passport (2TB) was a speedy performer overall, especially when using USB 3.0. In our PCMark 05 test, it churned out impressive scores of 6,016 (USB 3.0) and 3,078 (USB 2.0), putting it within relative striking distance of the Backup Plus (6,436 via USB 3.0; 3,125 via USB 2.0).

Using USB 3.0, The My Passport (2TB) copied our 1.22GB test folder in a brisk 15 seconds. This puts it exactly on par with the Backup Plus's USB 3.0 transfer speed (15 seconds).
