Western DigitalWD My Passport Studio portable drives : WD introduced its new My Passport Studio portable drives featuring the super-fast FireWire 800 interface and a customizable e-label that's always visible, even when the drive is unplugged. Sporting a sleek and stylish design, the new high-performance My Passport Studio drives are formatted for Mac computers, compatible with Apple TimeMachine software, and feature automatic and continuous backup with WD SmartWare software, and 256-bit hardware-based encryption. Available now at select retailers and shopwd.com, the new My Passport Studio drives are offered in capacities of 320GB, 500GB and 640GB. WD's My Passport Studio drives are designed for creative professionals and Mac enthusiasts.

Portable drives

Professionals use portable drives with fast data transfer rates
Their production and use of many large files require the fast transfers from computer to My Passport Studio portable drives that FireWire 800 provides. Professionals such as photographers also benefit from the e-labeling system to effectively organize their work. The e-label smart display on the front of the My Passport drives can be changed as often as desired using the included WD SmartWare software. Users can easily create a label to personalize their drive or remind themselves of its contents. The e-label also shows available capacity and whether the drive is locked. Utilizing e-paper technology, the information on the display remains clearly visible, even when the drive is unplugged.

WD SmartWare stores digital content on portable drives
According to research firm Parks Associates, the average U.S. broadband household currently has over 120GB of digital media and files which is projected to grow to over 1TB of data by 2013. "Many of our customers store their content on multiple external drives, making it difficult to know what content is on each drive," said Dale Pistilli, vice president of marketing of WD's Branded Products group. "The e-label smart display is an elegant and practical solution for organizing and keeping track of one's digital life and work. WD SmartWare software makes it easy for users to protect their valuable content with automatic and continuous backup and encryption."

Apple TimeMachine supports portable drive for daily backup
The new My Passport Studio portable drive is fully compatible with Apple TimeMachine software for easy backup of your most important files. It also offers the option of the simple and intuitive WD SmartWare software, with automatic continuous backup and real-time visual interface, giving users a reassuring view of their backup as it happens. After the first backup, users' files are backed up automatically every time they change or add a file.

Price and Availability of WD My Passport Studio portable drives
My Passport Studio drives also feature user-selected password protection combined with 256-bit hardware-based encryption, which scrambles files before they are stored. Typically found only on much more expensive drive systems, the encryption acts as a virtual padlock to keep users' data safe. The new My Passport Studio drives are offered in capacities of 320GB, 500GB and 640GB and have a 3-year limited warranty. My Passport Studio ultra-portable drives are available now at select retailers and online at shopwd.com. MSRP for the My Passport Studio drives ranges from $149.99 USD to $199.99 USD depending on capacity.
