WD ups the ante in 2.5-inch market

Written by Peter Scott



2TB My Passport on the way


Western Digital is about to introduce a 2TB My Passport Essential series external drive. According to some early listings, the new 2.5-inch drive should set you back just over €200, but it seems like a pretty interesting piece of kit.

It measures 110x83x18mm, so we assuming this is a 12.5mm drive and as such it won’t fit into most notebooks. However, as an external drive it is second to none. It features USB 3.0, but it won’t be the fastest thing around, as it is a 5400rpm unit.

Still, fitting 2TB of storage in compact 200g package that can slide into any pocket is pretty impressive nonetheless. Retailers should have it in stock by the end of the month, if their listings are to be believed.
