Western Digital has launched their new 1TB and 750GB My Passport Essential SE portable hard drives, touting large capacity in a small form measuring only 15x80x126mm. The mobile drive utilizes the companyâ€™s WD Scorpio Blue 2.5-inch hard disk drive for notebooks.
Western Digital said the new My Passport Essential SE drives are light and compact to carry and, because they are USB-powered, they do not need an external power adapter. They plug conveniently into your PCâ€™s USB port.
“The enormous capacity of these new My Passport Essential SE drives makes them the perfect travel-friendly storage device to hold all the rich media content generated by higher resolution photos and HD videos and music,” said Dale Pistilli, vice president of marketing for WD’s branded products group. “Carrying digital files close at hand continues to be a growing consumer interest and this new drive offers a sleek and stylish solution with plenty of storage capacity for people on the move.”
The new drives are available now for $300 for the 1TB version and $200 for the 750GB model.
