My Passport 2 TB portable Drive from WD is now Locally available

Western Digital® (NYSE: WDC) today announced the next generation of its top-selling My Passport® line of portable hard drives, offering consumers a  fresh new enclosure design and the first-ever 2 TB capacity in a portable drive.

The new My Passport drives offer WD SmartWare™ automatic backup software and WD Security™ for password protection and hardware encryption.
With the addition of premium finishes, specially-engineered to make the outer shell more resistant to scratches and fingerprints, the new My Passport portable drives feature ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity; USB 2.0 compatibility; continuous, automatic backup software; and password protection with hardware encryption. The included software offers the flexibility to customize the drive to a user’s storage preferences: installing all features, just the components needed, or using the drive without the software. The new 2 TB model offers massive capacity in an amazing pocket-sized enclosure, affording plenty of secure storage for all of one’s photos, video, music and other important files.

The SRP is a bit high if you ask me, but with the a portable 2TB on my hand I can store a lot of data and bring only 1 of these instead of multiple drives.
