WD Introduces 320GB My Passport Essential USB Hard Drive
WD today introduced its new My Passport Essential Portable USB Drives. Redesigned to complement WD's popular My Book family of external drives, the drives introduce a sleek new form that feels good in your hand and fits neatly in a pocket or purse. The new My Passport Essential USB Drives feature a beautiful glossy black finish and put almost a third of a terabyte of digital storage in the palm of your hand.
Weighing in at less than 5 ounces, My Passport Essential Drives are light and compact to carry and because they are bus powered, they do not need an external power adapter1. Equipped with sync and encryption software (Windows-compatible only), this lightweight drive with mega-capacity, makes it easy to securely carry thousands of songs, or videos or photos.
WD Sync software allows consumers to take desktop content with them by simplifying the synchronization of essential personal files and Microsoft Outlook data on a PC. Should owners misplace the drive, they know their data is protected with 128-bit encryption. Google software on the drive allows users to quickly locate files with the Google Desktop Search search tool, manage photos with Picasa photo organizer software and simplify Web searches with the Google Toolbar search bar.
A product specification sheet and photos of WD Passport Portable Drives are available on the company's Web site at http://www.westerndigital.com/en/products/Products.asp?DriveID=391.
WD's My Passport Essential USB Drives are available now at select retail stores and from WD's online store (www.shopwd.com). MSRP for the WD Passport Essential USB Drive 320 GB is $199.99 USD.
