Last week on the 17th October 2013, Western Digital launches the new My Passport Slim. It is the first thin drives to offer up to 2 TB capacity, a metal enclosure, and 256-bit hardware-based encryption.
The included WD SmartWare Pro data protection software will allow you to backup your data on the My Passport Slim and keep an extra copy on your Dropbox account. Similarly, you can also back up your Dropbox account to the My Passport Slim.
It is available in 2 sizes and comes with 3-year warranty. The 1TB is retailing for S$149 while the 2TB is retailing for S$239. It measures 80.0mm (width) x 110mm (depth) x 12.3mm (height) and weighs 134g.
My favourite part of the My Passport Slim got to be the metal enclosure. The back of the hard drive looks and feels like the back of the iPad Mini (Black & Slate). I wish they made the whole hard drive in black or silver rather than a mix of both colors.
