Are you looking for portable storage that will fit your busy lifestyle? You don’t need to look any further, because I have it. The Western Digital MyPassport SSD is everything you need. This external drive, designed by Western Digital to look stylish and sleek, ticks all the boxes. The device’s distinctive dimensions are obvious upon the first inspection. The MyPassport measures 3.94″ x 2.17′ x 0.35″ and is 1.7 ounces in weight. It looks more like an ATM card and weighs 1.7 ounces. No need to worry about space! You can fit it in your pocket. Durability is not an issue, as the drive has a maximum drop resistance of 6.5ft. It also has enough shock and vibration resistance for minor impacts without causing damage to its internal mechanisms.
The MyPassport works on both Macintosh (r) 10 and Windows (r) 8.1, Windows 7, macOS High Sierra Sierra, Sierra, or El Capitan). To switch from Windows’ NTFS filesystem to Macintosh’s APFS system, all you need is a simple reformat
If you want to use MyPassport as a backup tool only, it comes with Backup software. You can also plug it into any PC or laptop with ease using the USB-C and
USB-3 adapters. Both accessories are very short, according to industry standards.
Design and Performance
The WD MyPassport SSD comes in a variety of stylish colours, including red,
gold, grey, and grey. It is also available in a sleek metal design. It is not only attractive but also does the job. The speed of the MyPassport SSD is a major selling point. Long wait times for media transfer are gone with reading speeds of 1050MB/s or write speeds of 1000MB/s. Transferring large files of gigabyte size takes only seconds. There are many storage options available, ranging from 500GB up to 4TB. This will ensure that you have enough capacity. WD has yet to find the right balance between speed, heat and both. The drive is quick, but it heats up quickly, so don’t be alarmed.
In keeping with the newer trend for external drives, the MyPassport SSD comes with its own WD Discovery software: the WD Security App, as well as Drive Utilities. Your content is protected with password protection thanks to 256-bit AES hardware encryption. The Security app provides password protection to protect your drive’s contents. Drive Utilities, however, can be used to register your drive, set timers, run diagnostics and erase it.
