Western Digital has unveiled its latest range of My Passport solid-state drives each ideal for increasing your portable productivity. With a sleek, palm-sized metal design and speeds up to 1050MB per second, you will want to add one of these to your briefcase or backpack when they launch on September 30.
WD’s new My Passport SSDs are built from the ground up. Beyond the blazing fast read and write speeds, each SSD is password encrypted, shock and drop resistant up to 1.98 metres and connects to your PC or Mac using USB 3.2 technology. The drives are available in sizes from 500GB up to 2TB.
“The new My Passport SSD delivers the speed, reliability and functionality consumers have come to expect from us,” said Susan Park, vice president of Western Digital’s Consumer Solutions. “It is a powerful and sophisticated solution for the everyday content creators, curators and hobbyists who need to move files quickly.”
With the new My Passport, you can move and edit high-quality content nearly twice as fast compared to the previous version, saving a great deal of time. And thanks to its compact size, you can quickly go from desktop to laptop and from the home to the office, knowing your content is safe and secure.
Western Digital’s My Passport SSD is backed by a five-year limited warranty and will be available in Grey from September 30 with the Midnight, Red and Gold colourways available from later in the year. The 500GB drive will go for RRP $189, the 1TB option is $319, and the 2TB is priced at $629.
