WD today introduced its new My Passport Studio Portable Drives in capacities of 250GB and 320GB. According to the company, the newest members of the My Passport family are designed for Mac users and are equipped with both FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interfaces, a capacity gauge, and include a soft drawstring-carrying bag for protection from scratches and dirt.

"We designed the My Passport Studio portable drives to work seamlessly with Apple's Time Machine, making this drive an ideal storage solution for creative pros on-the-go who require high performance storage to back up and carry their massive amounts of digital content," said Jim Welsh, vice president and general manager of WD's branded products and consumer electronics groups. "This sleek personal storage device with a faster FireWire interface and Mac-formatting is exactly the storage solution our Mac customers have been clamoring for ever since we introduced the first WD Passport portable USB drive."

Unique features of the new My Passport Studio portable drives include:

  formatted HFS+, Journaled for Mac compatibility;

  FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interfaces;

  capacity gauge that enables users to know at-a-glance how much space is available;

  works with Apple Time Machine backup feature included in Apple's Leopard operating system;

  USB powered;

  5-year limited warranty; and,

  silver metallic finish that perfectly complements other Mac products.

WD's My Passport Studio portable drives are available now at select retail stores and from WD's online store. The 250GB and 320GB models are priced at $159.99 and $219.99, respectively.
