WD announces 2TB portable hard drives with dual FireWire ports

Western Digital introduced their first 2TB capacity portable hard drives mainly dedicated to Mac customers, under the same My Passport Studio branding. This new standard in high storage capacity, along with Apple Time Machine compatibility for quick and easy automatic backup of Mac hard drives, allows Mac users to use one drive for the protection and transport of virtually all their digital content, everywhere they go. The new My Passport Studio portable drive maintains its elegant and protective all-metal casing to complement the MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, aiming to provide the aesthetics that Mac users expect, whilst also increasing storage capacity to 2TB, which means that there is almost enough space for approximately 400,000 photos, 240 hours of video or 500,000 songs.

In addition to the USB 2.0 interface, My Passport Studio's two high performance FireWire 800 ports make it adequate for active and mobile creative professionals, including photographers, videographers, graphic artists, and others who need the speed, capacity, and flexibility to access content anytime, anywhere. The dual FireWire ports naturally provide a much faster upload and transfer speed, while also allowing users to daisy chain additional drives or other peripherals, such as HD camcorders. My Passport Studio also features hardware-based encryption, password protection software, scratch resistance and an all-metal design constructed for a sturdy feel in your hand.


"The My Passport Studio is a perfect companion for the MacBook Pro and for creative professionals on the go," explains Jody Bradshaw, Senior Director and General Manager of WD's consumer storage products group. "For those who create large content files such as photographers and videographers, they will now be able to carry it with them wherever they go, as well as create a backup copy of everything they produce without fear of running out of additional storage while on location."


WD's My Passport Studio 2TB portable hard drives are available at the WD store at www.wdstore.com. Though pricing and availability for the Indian sub-region hasn’t been announced as of now, you can stay tuned to this space for more details.
