Western Digital has today unveiled a new addition to their range in the form of the My Passport Studio 2TB portal hard drive that is equipped with dual FireWire 800 ports and a single USB 2.0.
The new My Passport Studio 2TB has been created especially for those running OS X and follows on from the release of the USB 3.0 version of the same drive a few days ago.
The My Passport Studio 2TB comes fitted with hardware based encryption and password protection. Even though the drive has been created for use with OS X, if you feel you need Firewire 800 support via your PC the drive can be reformatted to your requirements.
The Western Digital My Passport Studio 2TB is now available to purchase online and in stores worldwide for around $300. Jody Bradshaw, senior director and general manager of WD’s consumer storage products group explains:
“The My Passport Studio is a perfect companion for the MacBook Pro and for creative professionals on the go,”-“For those who create large content files such as photographers and videographers, they will now be able to carry it with them wherever they go, as well as create a backup copy of everything they produce without fear of running out of additional storage while on location.”
