Western Digital My Passport Essential SE (USB 3.0)

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.
