Now available in five popular colours, white, black, silver, blue, and red, with a range of capacities, 500GB, 750GB, 1TB and previously announced 2TB, the new sleeker My Passport portable drives offer digital consumers an appealing array of storage options that reflect their personal style.
With the addition of premium finishes, specially-engineered to make the outer shell more resistant to scratches and fingerprints, the My Passport external drives feature ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity; USB 2.0 compatibility; WD SmartWareTM continuous, automatic backup software and WD SecurityTM for password protection and hardware encryption. The included software offers the flexibility to customise the drive to a user's storage preferences: installing all features, just the components needed, or using the drive without the software.
"With a choice of different capacities and different enclosure designs, My Passport gives our customers an opportunity to express their unique style, in an amazing pocket-sized enclosure, affording plenty of secure storage for all of one's photos, video, music and other important files", says Tim Anderson, Director of Sales, Northern Europe for WD.
