Posted by: Staff

WD today introduced My Passport Pro, the first portable, Thunderbolt-powered dual-drive solution, providing creative professionals and enthusiasts high performance and capacity in a mobile solution. According to the company, My Passport Pro has user-selectable RAID functionality for Mac systems to deliver needed performance for the most demanding applications in the field, without the need for power adapters or extra cables. It's available in 2 TB and 4 TB capacities.

Directly powered via the integrated Thunderbolt cable - a design unique to WD - performance of My Passport Pro clocks in at speeds up to 233 MB/s, providing super-fast transfer, edit and backup capabilities. Another key feature of the dual-drive My Passport Pro is its user-selectable RAID function, which lets users choose data striping (RAID 0) for high performance or mirroring (RAID 1) for data redundancy, depending on the user's needs. 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.

My Passport Pro is available starting today from Apple and major consumer electronics retailers and e-tailers. Pricing for the 2 TB My Passport Pro is $299.99 and the 4 TB model is $429.99.
