WD My Passport External Hard Drive Review

Let me share my personal WD My Passport External hard drive review to you and tell more about the cool features of this cute back up. Among the Western Digital hard drives, this is my favorite. Let me tell you the reasons why.

My Passport has tremendous features such as portable and small drive, has a large capacity, lots of colors to choose from, available in both USB 3.0 OR USB 2.0 interface, has automatic back up, with WD security, and with WD utilities. Everything I need for backing up my digital files with the consideration of my style is already included.

In terms of size and weight, My Passport is a pocket-size external hard disk and it is so light to carry. It’s really handy and I can bring it with me wherever I go. Despite being small and light weight however, it has a large storage ranging from 500GB to 2TB.

I have a collection of videos, pictures, music, and files that are saved in My Passport hard drive and I am sure that those files are protected. With automatic and continuous back up software, my data are being backed up using minimal PC resources because it works in the background. The transfer rate of files is also 3x faster compared to my old external drives. Whenever I have changes with my files, it is instantly backed up in my drive so I don’t have to worry about data getting lost. My data are important to me and I want them to be secured. With the feature of My Passport to set password protection and reliable hardware encryption, my files are protected from unauthorized access of untrustworthy individuals.

I have also proven that WD My Passport is durable with my long term use. It is also awesome that it is designed with shock tolerance and robust enclosure for protection of the drive inside. I had one friend who accidentally bumped me and my WD My Passport fell. I was so anxious that I cried thinking that my hard drive might have been damaged. I rushed to the computer laboratory to check my hard disk and thankfully, it is still working and the data are still there with no errors.

Western Digital My Passport external hard drive is really made with durability and quality. Aside from that, the design is really cool. It is cute but it can contain lots of data in it. Not to mention your data inside this external hard drive is also safe and secured. My Passports includes good looks, large capacity, and security all together!
