This is an older generation of the WD Passports that are only USB 2.0. The newer versions sport USB 3.0

@bigexxon:
The specs listed on the site specifically say USB 3.0. The manufacturer part number they provide is WDBACX0010BBK-NESN. Western Digital's website specifically says it's USB 3.0, and the WDBACX0010BBK I have sitting on my desk is a USB 3.0 drive.

What makes you think this doesn't support USB 3.0?

@chiquita I was referencing the wrong model number apparently as I thought the WDBBEP0010BBK-NESN's were the USB 3.0 version of the My Passport Essentials. My apologies!
