WD Launches 2 Portable USB Hard Drives

Western Digital has introduced its new 1 TB and 750 GB My Passport Essential SE Portable USB Drives in a titanium silver finish.

The drives are light and compact to carry and are USB-powered so they do not need an external power adapter. Equipped with sync and encryption software (Windows-compatible only), this small drive makes it easy to securely carry data around.

WD Sync software allows consumers to take desktop content with them by simplifying the synchronization of essential personal files and Microsoft Outlook data on a PC.

"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."

WD's My Passport Essential SE portable drives are available from WD's online store (www.shopwd.com) at an MSRP of $299.99 USD for the 1 TB model and $199.99 USD for the 750 GB model.
