Western Digital intros My Passport Studio 2TB portable HDD, twin FireWire 800 ports included
Just days after WD revealed new 2TB My Passport drives for the USB 3.0-respecting world, along comes an option for those running OS X. Aside from the conventional USB 2.0 socket on the My Passport Studio, the Mac-friendly unit also packs a pair of FireWire 800 sockets. Not surprisingly, it ships with hardware-based encryption and password protection software, and while it’ll probably come formatted for an Apple, there’s nothing at all stopping other platforms from taking advantage. It’ll ship in any capacity you want so long as you’re happy with 2TB, and it’ll be available at fine retailers around the globe this month for $299.99.
