Western Digital (WD) has announced their fastest portable drive yet, the My Passport SSD. Meant for content creators and enthusiasts who require the fastest portable storage they can get their hands on, the new Passport SSD combines capacity, speed and portability in one sleek palm-sized package.

If you have a need for speed, the My Passport SSD is sure to satisfy you, and then some. Capable of speeds of up to 515MB/s, the My Passport SSD is the fastest My Passport drive offered by WD yet. It is also designed for the latest generation of devices with support for USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps). The Western Digital My Passport SSD connects via USB Type-C, but for those who are on more antiquated systems, fret not. An USB Type-C to Type-A adapter is provided for compatibility with older systems. These drives are built for PC and compatible with Mac.

The My Passport SSD features 256-bit AES hardware encryption and password protection, promising peace-of-mind even if you keep your most sensitive information on these drives. That’s not the only thing that will help you sleep better at night though, these drives are 6.5-foot drop tested for shock resistance and are capable of withstanding 1500G of force, assuring you that these drives can take quite a beating.

The drives are available in three capacities, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB, priced at RM579, RM1039 and RM2099, respectively. The drives are covered by a 3-year limited warranty and will be available at select retailers and distributors starting 7 July 2017. For those who can’t wait, the drives will be available at Lazada, with an exclusive launch promotion starting today until 6th July 2017.

Pokdepinion: More fast portable storage is always welcome, and if you have extra USB ports, you can just use these as expand your laptop’s storage, especially if you have one of those non-user-serviceable devices.
