Where once portable hard drives were the norm, solid-state storage drives like this from Western Digital (known as WD these days) are becoming more common.
At 100 x 55 x 9mm / 3.94 x 2.17 x 0.35-inches, the WD My Passport SSD is is slim enough to fit into a camera bag or pocket and it weighs less than 50g.
Inside its metal casing, there’s NVMe technology which enables read and write speeds of up to 1050MB/s and 1000MB/s respectively.
WD supplies the My Passport SSD with a USB Type-C to Type-C cable
that supports USB 3.2 Gen 2. There’s also a USB Type-C to Type-A adapter which means that the drive is backwards compatible with older connections.
No drivers are required so you can just connect the My Passport SSD to your computer, Mac or PC, and start using it without reformatting. However, the WD Discovery software is available to install from the drive if you want to set-up password protection or use it as a backup. The My Passport SSD is also compatible with Apple Time Machine.
