Western Digital's portable SSD drive is coming to Malaysia

Finally, you can feel less anxious about dropping your portable hard disk

Western Digital's My Passport portable hard disks are pretty popular but if you've been waiting for an SSD version, one is coming soon to our shores.

Super-fast, super-light

Western Digital says this its fastest My Passport drive yet with speeds up to 515Mbs. It comes with a USB Type-C to Type-C cable but also an adapter for the standard USB port. The drive also features passport protection, 256-bit AES hardware encryption as well as shock resistance of up to 1500GB of force, tested via a 6.5foot drop test.

It's priced at RM579 for 256GB, RM1039 for 512GB and RM2099 for 1TB of storage. The drives also come with a limited three-year warranty and will be available at select retailers from 7 July 2017 onwards.

Lazada is having a promotion on the drive until 6 July 2017 so you can check that out here.
