WD My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive


Now that almost all of our media is digital — movies, music, video games — we need storage solutions that we can trust to securely carry our data around. As with all technology, hard drive prices are falling every year. Our go-to hard drives have always been Western Digital (WD) and their newest My Passport Ultra portable hard drive looks to be another winner. It’s compact, light and most importantly, fast, thanks to USB 3.0. It comes with a variety of WD security and backup software and works with both Windows and Macs. 500GB hard drives start at $100, 1TB at $130 and a 2TB model will be available this summer (price has yet to be announced). We don’t care what you’re storing in it because that’s none of our business.

Price: 500GB ($100), 1TB ($130), 2TB (TBA)
