no matter how big is the internal hard drive of your computer, you will still need some form of external backup or storage. we are no fans of cloud storage cos’ we prefer to keep our data close to us, even if it means lugging along another couple of portable hard drives. it make sense to us since external drives are getting more compact and its capacity is growing exponentially, like this new My Passport from Western Digital. sporting a massive 2TB storage capacity wrapped in an amazingly small enclosure (it’s smaller then your passport, alright), it features USB 2.0 backward compatible SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity for ultra-quick transfers and comes bundle with WD’s proprietary automatic backup software, password protection and hardware encryption. and yeah, it is quite a looker too. yes. we are a huge sucker for eye-pleasing aesthetic and we are not going to deny it. the WD My Passport 2TB retails for $249.99. also available in 1TB ($139.99) and 500GB ($119.99) capacities. more look after the break.
