Whereas Freecoms ToughDrive and WiebeTechs ToughTech XE are built with protection from bumps and bangs in mind, Western Digitals Passport hard drive is all about easy portability.

When it comes to toting large amounts of data around, small and light are the order of the day. The Western Digital Passport is just 15mm high and holds a 120GB Western Digital Scorpio notebook drive. The chassis is USB powered via a port thats hid...

The Western Digital WD Passport is one of the best portable hard drives weve seen.

Pink is our new obsession, and we have Western Digital to blame. Its pink, portable Passport hard drive (try saying that fast) is small enough to fit in Steven Tyler’s mouth, yet it comes with two of our most favorite features in the world: sweet speed...
Good It’s fast, it’s light, it requires only one cord!...
Bad Google advertising/software is unnecessary; the black 320GB variant is only $20 more.

Notebook users would be wise to keep a portable backup of their drive’s contents, as they are prone to dying at a young age from being moved around so much. Western Digital’s solution to this conundrum is the WD Passport – a USB-powered...

A hard disk drive cannot be too big. Very often we get to the point when we start thinking of getting a new storage solution, because the old one can no longer fit all the data that we need for comfortable living. Those who care most about mobility of...
Bottom line The new Western Digital solution turned out an indisputable success. It is not only the today’s largest external solution on 2.5” hard disk drive, but it proves excellent in all work modes tested. I would specifically like to stress great perf...

WD has upped its storage densities on its new range of high-end portable hard drives. Starting at 1TB and going up to 3TB, we have the middle-range 2TB under review. These new drives go by the ‘Ultra' tag, but this means little anymore (originally it mean...
Bottom line Simplicity is the name when it comes to storage, as it should be. The software is easy to use, if a little thin on available actions, but the full drive encryption is major bonus, even if it's limited to Macs and PCs. Drive performance is improved somewha...
