The USB 3.0 Western Digital My Passport Air is the best looking portable harddisk to complement the design of your MacBook Air/Pro. Two different capacities are available, the 500GB is retailing for S$129 and the 1TB is retailing for S$219.

The enclosure is made up of anodised aluminium and it measures (length x width x depth) 112mm x 83mm x 11mm and weighs 160g. It is meant to be used with a Mac and hence it comes pre-formatted in HFS+ Journaled.

Bought the Western Digital My Passport Carrying Case from Changi City Point’s Challenger for S$9.90 (member’s price is S$8.90).

I am using the My Passport Essential (2011) and Li Xiang is using the My Passport Essential (2012) and the carrying case fits the harddrive just fine along with the USB cable.

Li Xiang got the Western Digital My Passport (1TB) from Challenger for S$189 (Member’s Price: S$159).

This is the new 2012 edition and WD has dropped the name “Essential SE” and hence the name is just Western Digital My Passport. Also USB 3.0 is now the standard feature.

Hooted the My Passport Essential SE (1TB) (USB 3.0) from SITEX 2010 for S$189.90 (usual price is S$209.90). This is my first USB 3.0 device despite not having any computers that support USB 3.0. It is all about future proofing!

Since this portal harddrive supports USB 3.0, the connector on the harddrive itself is a USB 3.0 MicroUSB Port (which looks weird, see picture below) instead of the usual USB 2.0 MiniUSB port. But it is backward compatible meaning your USB 2.0 MicroUSB (NOT miniUSB) still can fit into the port.
