Western Digital outs My Passport® Ultra™

Carrying your own whole collection of movies, music, games, or any documents in a single storage could be so bothersome if you're stuck with a flash disk that has a small and somewhat limited capacity. Nowadays, a 16GB flash drive couldn't be enough especially if you're a download addict (like me) or you use it as a backup for all your files. That's where portable hard drives come in  handy, with storage capacities up to 2TB. Almost unlimited, right?

Just yesterday, Western Digital, a world leader in storage solutions, announced the newest addition to their portable hard drive family: the WD My Passport® Ultra™. With capacities ranging from 500GB to 2TB, super-fast USB 3.0, data protection and backup features, and a slim design complemented with nice colors, it's just a perfect option for a compact and fashionable yet affordable physical file storage.
