WD has introduced new, redesigned My Passport Ultra portable hard drives and My Passport for Mac drives, available in capacities up to 3TB and in black, white, blue and ‘wild berry’.
My Passport Ultra drives feature 256-bit AES hardware encryption, delivering a high level of security with no impact to write-speed or CPU activity. USB 3.0 compatibility provides data transfer rates of up to 5 gigabits per second, while being backwardly compatible with USB 2.0.
The built-in WD Backup software is a simple-to-use application for setting up a backup plan.
The My Passport Ultra and My Passport for Mac portable drives are available now (3TB capacity available next month). Prices range from $89 (NZ$99) through to $219 (NZ$319)
Distributor in Australia and NZ is Synnex. The drives are offered with a 3-year limited warranty.
