Western Digital My Passport Pro

· · · Storage

Western Digital My Passport Pro was announced last month on the 31st March 2014.

It is the first portable, Thunderbolt-powered dual-drive with integrated Thunderbolt cable. Because it is powered by Thunderbolt, you do not need a separate power source.

It is meant to be used with a Mac and hence it will come pre-formatted with HFS+ J. And of course, you can expect it to work with Apple Time Machine.

The internals consist of two 2.5-inch hard drives housed in a sleek aluminium enclosure and it is thoroughly shock-tested for extra durability to perform reliably when working on the go. Because it has two hard drives, you can configure it to be RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD.

It measures 143.4mm (length) x 88.5mm (width) x 44.2mm (height) and weighs 718g.

It is available in two sizes, the 2TB will be retailing for SGD$499 and the 4TB will be retailing for SGD$699.

Moshi VersaKeyboard for iPad Air

I think the Moshi VersaKeyboard for iPad Air is a pretty good invention and I am surprised not many people thought of it!

It is retailing for SGD$139 and comes in only one color, Graphite Black. The back shell is made of polycarbonate.

The Moshi VersaKeyboard consists of the Moshi VersaCover Origami Case for iPad Air which I reviewed last month and a detachable ultra-thin Bluetooth keyboard.

So on days you do not need a keyboard for your iPad Air, you could always detach it and leave it at home or in office and that reduces the overall weight. The case and the Bluetooth keyboard weights 380g and when you add in the weight of the iPad Air (Wi-Fi + Cellular), it totals to 858g.

In the pictures below, you will notice that the back of the VersaKeyboard (where it holds the detachable Bluetooth keyboard), there is a special rubber material being used to prevent scratches to your Bluetooth keyboard’s keys.

The Bluetooth keyboard contains full-size keys of a standard keyboard. The tactile feedback of the keys is a little soft for my liking. I think Logitech did a slightly better job with the tacticle feedback of the keys in the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover.

The Bluetooth range is 10m and the battery can last for 130 hours.

Features

  • Detachable Bluetooth keyboard with 130 hours of battery life and LED power indicator
  • Folding VersaCover doubles as a stand in portrait and landscape modes
  • Ultra-thin and lightweight design
  • Durable polycarbonate shell includes convenient keyboard slot
  • Support for iPad auto-wake and sleep functionality

Where To Buy
You can get the Moshi VersaKeyboard for iPad Air from physical stores such as Challenger, EpiCentre or Infinite. Alternatively you can get it online from Ban Leong’s eStore.
