The My Passport SSD is a powerful and durable solid disk drive that measures 3.5 x 1.8 x 0.39 inches (90 x 45 x 10mm). As we can see from the images, the solid state drive shows off an ultra portable and slim form factor. The lighter-sized design allows you to effortlessly slide the external storage device into your pocket. Meanwhile, the silver-and-black casing is not only strong enough to withstand a drop of up to 6.5 feet (1.98 meters), but also delivers a charming modern style to match the design aesthetics of your mobile devices.
The portable SSD comes in three storage capacity options: 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB, so it’s capable of storing various digital files, and its WD Backup software enables it to automatically back up high-capacity files to your drive or Dropbox cloud service account.
Furthermore, the portable solid state drive is compatible with USB-C and USB-A ports, so it’s able to transmit data with speeds up to 512MB/s using USB-C, and it supports USB 3.0 ports. Moreover, built-in 256-bit AES hardware encryption with WD security software keeps your files secure.
The My Passport SSD will be available soon, but the pricing hasn’t been unveiled. If you’re interested, jump to West Digital official site for its more details.
