WD(R) Introduces First Thunderbolt(TM)-Powered Portable Dual-Drive

WD(R) introduced My Passport(R) Pro, the first portable, Thunderbolt(TM)-powered dual-drive solution, providing creative professionals and enthusiasts high performance and capacity in a truly mobile solution. For Mac systems, My Passport Pro has user-selectable RAID functionality to deliver needed performance for the most demanding applications in the field, without the need for power adapters or extra cables. My Passport Pro is available in 2 TB and 4 TB capacities. Directly powered via the integrated Thunderbolt cable -- a design unique to WD -- performance of My Passport Pro clocks in at speeds up to 233 MB/s, providing super-fast transfer, edit and backup capabilities. Another key feature of the dual-drive My Passport Pro is its user-selectable RAID function, which lets users choose data striping (RAID 0) for high performance or mirroring (RAID 1) for data redundancy, depending on the user's needs. Superior to both FireWire 800 and USB 3.0, the integrated Thunderbolt technology of My Passport Pro makes video manipulation quick and easy--with the ability to copy a 22 GB high-definition video file in half the time typically required by a USB 3.0 drive working in RAID 0 format. Consisting of two 2.5-inch hard drives housed in a sleek aluminum enclosure, My Passport Pro is thoroughly shock-tested for extra durability to perform reliably when working on the go. My Passport Pro will be available immediately at Apple and major consumer electronics retailers and e-tailers as well as online at www.wdstore.com. Pricing for the 2 TB My Passport Pro is $299.99 and the 4 TB model is $429.99.

WD Introduces My Passport AV-TV Drive for TV Recording and Playback

WD has introduced My Passport AV-TV, a compact media drive reportedly designed to simplify storage and playback of TV entertainment by connecting the My Passport AV-TV to TV's with a USB recording feature. The My Passport AV-TV offers plug-and-play simplicity for easy integration and is available in 500 GB and 1 TB capacities. My Passport AV-TV is engineered for AV applications with high-speed error recovery and continuous streaming command support, providing accurate recording and smooth video playback of recorded content. Additionally, My Passport AV-TV uses less power and stays cool - even in a hot entertainment center full of electronic devices. The drive's super-fast USB 3.0 connection works with recordable TVs to facilitate storage on devices with multiple HD streams for users who connect their My Passport AV-TV to a dual-tuner television. This allows customers to store recordings from two different channels at the same time, or watch a previously recorded show while simultaneously recording a live show. Sleek and ultra-compact, My Passport AV-TV fits neatly in or near any entertainment center. The drive can be mounted on the back of the TV with the included, standardized TV bracket, placed upright using the included tabletop stand, or positioned horizontally, to maximize airflow and minimize heat from other electronics near the drive.
