Western Digital My Passport Wireless is the first wireless storage from Western Digital. It was launched on the 29th October 2014 in Singapore.
There are three sizes available, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. However in Singapore, only the 1TB and 2TB are available. The 1TB is retailing for S$299 and the 2TB is retailing for S$399.
Beside the capacity difference, the thickness of the drive also differs. The 1TB has a thickness of 24.4mm while the 2TB has a thickness of 29.8mm. That is a difference of 5.4mm. Personally, I am ok with the 2TB thickness, but some of my fellow tech bloggers find it too thick.
For this review, I bought the 2TB variant at a media discount. If not for the media discount, I will probably get the 1TB variant from Amazon (US$168.47 ~= S$220) instead because it is much cheaper and it ships for free to Singapore under the free Amazon’s AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping.
