External Hard Drive for Creatives on the Go: WD My Passport Pro


When in Manila or elsewhere in the world and working digital with a Mac, you will be glad to read on and learn what Western Digital’s My Passport Pro is!

One afternoon, I found myself huddling with bloggers while listening to Arnel Murillo, an accomplished photographer. He talked about travel photography. Glad as I was to be there, I picked up tips that were added to my photography knowledge bin. Here are my favorites: (1) capture things as naturally as possible, (2) look by quadrants and, most importantly, (3) take the scene in before shooting.

Moreover, he taught us how to shoot food with the available camera, light and/or accessories at hand. Lastly, he showed us what his camera bag contained. We were all like drooling at his equipment. Why? Dude, he was like a portable photo store! Haha.

Anyway, one of the things he pointed out is that it is great to have a reliable and fast external hard drive. WD responded to that need by providing exactly what Arnel was talking about.

Aimed at helping the professional (and on-the-move) photographers, videographers, graphic artists, architects and other creative pros dealing with digital contents, WD released an external hard drive called My Passport Pro. Mac users will love this first portable and Thunderbolt™-powered dual-drive solution. It has user-selectable RAID functionality and is available in 2TB and 4TB capacities. Let’s look at these features one by one.

Bus Powered and Speed

Mobile professionals will not have to worry about where to get electricity sources for 2TB and 4TB WD My Passport Pro. It is bus-powered, so looking for outlets in corners for electricity as the power is drawn from the computer itself via the USB port. WD’s integrated Thunderbolt cable can deliver data as fast as 233 MB/s.

RAID functionality

Since the aluminum outer case of this external hard drive houses two 2.5-inch drives, users may opt to use data stripping (RAID 0) high performance/mirroring (RAID 1) or the normal individual drives.

Memory Space and Price

Another question that you will ask is the suggested retail price. The 2TB My Passport Pro is priced at Php 15,990 while the 4TB’s SRP is Php21,990. It may be quite high, but consider the performance, eh?

With the loads of data that professionals have to deal with, I can imagine how WD My Passport Pro can make life easier for them. So consider shifting from normal to pro with WD today!
