Western Digital Delivers My Passport Ultra Portable HDDs

Western Digital has a new line of portable hard drives on the market, the My Passport Ultra, which adds to the family of My Passport devices and serves as a generational bump for the My Passport Edge.

In fact, the Ultra looks exactly like the Edge (and comes in black, silver, red, or blue), but it comes in a greater variety of capacities--500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. The drives feature USB 3.0, WD Smartware Pro backup software (which includes Dropbox integration), and password protection and hardware encryption for added security.

The 500GB version will run you $99.99 while the 1TB version is $129.99; there’s no price yet on the 2TB My Passport Ultra, but it won’t be available until Q3 anyway. All of the drives come with a 3-year limited warranty.
