WD My Passport Slim now with up to 2 TB capacity


Consumers’ demand for more storage in a compact solution will no longer be a problem with the new WD’s My Passport Slim line of portable hard drives, which now offer up to 2 TB capacity. This portable storage device is known for its super slim design, metal enclosure design, and 256-bit hardware-based encryption.

It also features SmartWare Pro data protection software, which allows users to back up their data both to their My Passport Slim and Dropbox account.

Available in 1 TB and 2 TB capacities, the My Passport Slim measures only 4.33 x 3.14 x 0.48-inches, giving mobile consumers an easy and convenient way to transport their favorite music, movies, photos and documents.

The My Passport Slim also incorporates super-fast USB 3.0 connectivity for quick transfer speeds of high resolution digital files.
