Mac users like to pay more for the same thing. It makes us feel superior to everyone else.
The fact that it doesn't have a proprietary cable is the thing that makes me want to pull the trigger

Is this any better than the black 5TB WD MyPassort (non ultras) that were going for around 95-100 just a few weeks ago ? Is it because its silver and formatted for Mac out of the box that we are paying the 10 dollar premium ?

I see this has USB Type C. Does this actually make any real performance benefits or otherwise ?

I've been tracking this these specific 5GB models for months (both Win and Mac) waiting on a deal and this is definitely the lowest in a long time. I held of last Dec when the Windows version dropped to $119 a few places - this is a solid deal.

There are a number of other WD portable 5GB models but these are the only Ultra ones with a USB 3 Type-C connector instead of most others with a USB 3 Micro-B connector.

I see.. does the USB 3 Type C controller actually make much of a difference vs Micro-B though ?

I don't think there is a speed advantage but for me it's about standard cables as this one is one of the few with a USB 3 Type-C connector instead of most others with a USB 3 Micro-B connector. I don't want to have to hunt down a USB-A <-> USB Micro-B given USB-A <-> USB-C and USB-C <-> USB-C are far more common now and going forward - even most Android cell phones and other devices that used Micro-B have moved on to USB-C.

Paid $117 on Amazon a few months ago. Been solid since purchased as Time Machine drive. Don't mind paying a few more dollars for this over the My Passports to get USB-C.
