Western Digital My Passport SSD Now Available in up to 2TB

Cloud backups are great, but there is nothing better than knowing you have a hard copy of everything important — whether it be your computer backup or all of the photos that you have ever taken. The thing is that all these types of files can take up a lot of memory space, and that’s where the Western Digital My Passport SSD comes in so handy. It was already available in 500GB and 1TB sizes, but now you can get one with 2TB.

The Western Digital My Passport SSD has a compact and sleek metal design, and it uses NVMe technology to give read speeds of up to 1050MB/s2 and write speeds of up to 1000MB/s2. You can cave time uploading and downloading your massive files, and take them with you without worrying about shocks and drops, because the My Passport SSD has built-in shock and vibration resistance, and it is drop-resistant up to 6.5′. If you need to password-protect your files, that’s no problem as the drives feature password enabled 256-bit AES hardware encryption to keep your content secure.

The new My Passport SSD delivers the speed, reliability, and functionality consumers have come to expect from us. It is a powerful and sophisticated solution for the everyday content creators, curators, and hobbyists who need to move files quickly. The rounded corners, waving ridges and soft edges enhance the My Passport SSD’s portability and make it easy to carry, yet also distinctly recognizable as a member within WD’s award-winning My Passport product line-up. — Susan Park, vice president, Consumer Solutions, Western Digital

There is software included that will make it easy to back up larger files to your dive and to cloud services. The SSD drives use USB 3.2 Gen-2 technology with a USB-C cable and a USB-A adaptor, and out of the box, they are compatible with both Mac and Windows computers. My Passport SSDs come with a five-year limited warranty, and you can get them directly from Western Digital and other retailers at 500GB for $119.99, 1TB for $189.99, and now 2TB for $359.99. These are pocket-sized, but also perfect for leaving connected to your iMac for easy Time Capsule backups.
