The new SSD offers accelerated read speeds of up to 1050 MB / s and write speeds of up to 1000 MB / s.

With work from home the new normal, people create and consume a lot of content – text, photos, video, and audio. Needless to say, there is a strong demand for storage products that enable home and business users to store, access, and protect their critical content. A new palm-sized drive from Western Digital (WD) promises to make it easy for users to manage their large content libraries at lightning-fast speeds. We're talking about the WD My Passport SSD, which comes in a sleek, compact metal design with speeds up to 1050MB / s, hardware encryption, and a five-year limited warranty.

The My Passport SSD is available in 500GB (Rs 6,999), 1 TB (Rs 12,999) and 2 TB (Rs 24,999) capacities and is available at the Amazon Great India Festival (October 16 to November 13). The bold metal design is stylish and durable. It lies comfortably in the hand and easily fits in a pocket.

The new SSD offers accelerated read speeds of up to 1050 MB / s and write speeds of up to 1000 MB / s. With the password-enabled 256-bit AES hardware encryption, content can be secured and productivity increased. With a sleek, durable metal design that is both shock and vibration resistant, it will withstand drops of up to 6.5 feet. As the fastest My Passport drive to date, it is a storage solution that can be easily used to back up your data and is compatible with Mac and PC.

Company employees say the new My Passport SSD allows developers to move and edit high quality content almost twice as fast compared to the previous version of the drive. Whether on a laptop or desktop at home, in the office or on the go, a user can reliably store data on this drive.
