It’s going on, guys. so when it comes to portable storage solutions, there are many options out there nowadays, depending on your specific needs, which might be better than others for me personally.
I need a fast, compact portable SSD that simple to use and, most importantly, great for travel, and that’s where my passport goes comes in. The folk over at western digital were kind enough to send this out for me to use for the past many weeks, and this is really a perfect external portable drive, and it’s met all of my needs.
If you’re interested in learning more about my passport go to any of western digital’s other products, leave some links down below in the video description to this hard drive their website, and a few other products, I’d recommend.
If you’re in the market, check down my passport go comes in many different styles and configurations right now. You can get either a 500-gigabyte model or the one terabyte version, and they both come in either blue or yellow tram.
I have the yellow 500-gigabyte version here, obviously, that was good enough for me since my computer has just a 500 gigabyte SST inside by itself anyway; I wouldn’t personally need more space now the drive itself is tiny.
It’s barely bigger than like a deck of cards, and it’s probably half the size of any smartphone you might have. It’s also really light. Most of what you see is just a protective outer plastic shell that protects the relatively small SSD inside like the name suggests.
my passport goes made for travel, and it’s designed to take a beating and keep on going around the edges of the housing. You get this tough, rubbery finish will absorb the impact of a fall from up to 2 meters, of course, and this is an SST.
So there are no moving parts to worry about, but it’s still nice that this thing can be tossed in a bag or backpack without having to worry about how much it’s getting bounced around inside. There are no extra cables or adapters to worry about either this is your standard USP 3.oh drive that comes with one single built-in cable and tucks underneath the drive when it’s not in use.
I am personal. Yeah, not about that U. S. B. C. life.
Yet I still have one of the previous generations’ MacBook pros, so I have no complaints here with their choice to stick with USB 3. Most importantly, with my passport go, you’ll be getting speeds from the solid-state drive over that USP 3 connection.
The drive itself is up to 2.5 times faster than regular hard disk drives. You’ll be seeing speeds between 200 and 400 megabytes per second depending on your computer and what it is you’re transferring.
But you could potentially move 500 gigabytes of stuff in just a few minutes. You don’t necessarily need any additional software to use my passport go it’s definitely a plug-and-play portable drive. The western digital does offer a handy toolbar shortcut on mac that gives.
Your easy access to a few additional features. You’re going to see all the information about not only your passport go any other drives you have connected to your computer beyond just simple storage and file transfer device.
The go can also be used as a backup hard drive so, for example, it works flawlessly with a time machine on the mac, and in addition to playing nice with your PC or Mac, the go can be used with an Xbox One or PS 4 well which is great.
So if you’re hoping to get something for gaming, this is a product worth considering right now. You can pick up the 500-gigabyte version of my passport go for about 80 bucks, and I find that to be a pretty competitive price for what? You’re getting.
It’s a lightweight yet durable portable SSD that’s perfect for keeping all your files safe, and I would recommend it, so hopefully.
