Western Digital may be one of the largest, and perhaps most popular hard drive manufacturers on this planet, but that doesn’t mean the company is sitting back and resting on their laurels.  Nope, they’re continuously innovating and packing more punch (as in storage) into a smaller box.  Case in point you ask?  The My Passport 2 TB portable hard drive My Passport.

Yes, 2 TB and it boasts a footprint no larger than, well, a US passport (how fitting)!  Not too long ago that kind of capacity was only found inside a much larger, far less portable box that required an external power source.  The My Passport line of portable drives, which range in capacity from 320 GB -– 2 TB, require no external power since they draw energy from your computer’s USB port.  And speaking of USB, the complete line of My Passport drives are USB 2.0 and 3.0 compatible for ultra fast transfer rates.

That said, Western DigitalWD isn’t a one trick pony.  Each drive includes Western Digital’sWD’s backup software that is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers.  It quietly runs in the background and automatically backs up your important data so you never have to run that pesky Apple Time Machine and it’s even smart enough to backup your data based on category, or a file-by-file basis.   And if you’re looking for even more added security we suggest you checkout their WD Nomad rRugged case.  This case’s exterior is crafted from polycarbonate, while the interior is lined with a soft elastomer cushion, protecting your My Passport’s data from drops up to 7 feet and a variety of inclement weather.

The My Passport line of drives start at $80 and are available from a variety of retailers including Amazon and those alike. Click here for more info.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
