Western Digital reveals first Thunderbolt-powered portable drive

One of the leaders in storage solutions – Western Digital – has announced the My Passport Pro, which is the first portable Thunderbolt-powered dual-drive solution that provides both high performance and mobility in one package. The new WD product is available in 2 TB and 4 TB capacities and offers Mac users user-selectable RAID functionality that delivers performance when needed the most.

“The only Thunderbolt dual-drive solution that’s bus-powered, WD’s My Passport Pro enhances the workflow of mobile creative professionals by providing fast transfers and data protection for the large amounts of digital content they generate outside the studio,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president of branded products and worldwide sales, WD. “From photographers, videographers and musicians to graphic designers and architects, people who depend on portable storage for their livelihood will find My Passport Pro defines a new level of performance, reliability and especially portability.”

The My Passport Pro sits in a nice aluminum chassis and gets power directly from the integrated Thunderbolt cable and reaches data transfer speed of 233 MB/sec for super fast data transfer and backup. Supporting both RAID 0 and RAID 1 the WD My Passport Pro is able to copy a 22 GB HD video file in half the time a USB 3.0 drive that works in RAID 0 would need.

The new WD product will be available in April with the 2 TB model selling for USD 299.99. The 4 TB model will cost you USD 429.99.
