My Passport Pro: WD Thunderbolt Powered Portable Dual Drive


Western Digital Singapore (WD) launched the first portable, Thunderbolt™-powered dual-drive My Passport® Pro, providing creative professionals and enthusiasts high performance and capacity in a truly mobile solution, and is available in 2 TB and 4 TB capacities. My Passport Pro has user-selectable RAID functionality to perform for the most demanding applications in the field, without the need for power adapters or extra cables for Mac systems.

The WD’s My Passport Pro with fast transfers and data protection for the large amounts of digital content generated outside the studio. It also provides a new level of performance, reliability and portability to people who depend on portable storage for their livelihood, ranging from photographers, videographers and musicians to graphic designers and architects.

Thunderbolt™ technology makes high-performance workflows possible by combining dual storage drives on a portable, bus-powered device, providing a powerful storage solution with high capacity for today’s demanding users.

Directly powered via the integrated Thunderbolt cable — a design unique to WD, My Passport Pro clocks in at speeds up to 233 MB/s, providing super-fast transfer, edit and backup capabilities.

Another key feature is its user-selectable RAID function, which allows users choose data striping (RAID 0) for high performance or mirroring (RAID 1) for data redundancy.

Superior to both FireWire 800 and USB 3.0, the integrated Thunderbolt technology of My Passport Pro makes video manipulation quick and easy—with the ability to copy a 22 GB high-definition video file in half the time typically required by a USB 3.0 drive working in RAID 0 format.

Consisting of two 2.5-inch hard drives housed in a sleek aluminum enclosure, My Passport Pro is proven with extra durability to perform through thorough shock-test.
