Western Digital Makes Travel-ready Storage a Go

Western Digital Corp. today launched the new My Passport® Go SSD in Australia. The latest addition to the award-winning, WD-branded My Passport family, the My Passport Go SSD features up to 1TB[2] of portable SSD storage in a durable, convenient form factor that includes an integrated cable and rubber bumper. Built to travel, the My Passport Go is great for anyone looking for SSD performance on the go.

The My Passport Go SSD features a shock-absorbing rubber bumper and no moving parts, making it drop-resistant up to two meters and helping keep consumers’ content safe from bumps and shakes. Its pocket-sized form factor and built-in cable make the My Passport Go drive incredibly convenient without leaving important components behind.

At more than 2.5x faster than most portable hard drives, the My Passport Go delivers SSD performance of up to 400MB/s[3]. Fully compatible with PC or Mac computers, the My Passport Go SSD also comes with a three-year limited warranty, easy-to-use automatic backup software for Windows, and is also Time Machine compatible for Mac backup (reformatting required).

Available in two colours – Cobalt Blue and Amber – and in capacities of 500GB and 1TB, the My Passport Go SSD can be purchased in select Western Digital retailers and distributors for AUD$149 and AUD$269 respectively.
