WD launches Thunderbolt-powered My Passport Pro

WD has introduced My Passport Pro, the first portable, Thunderbolt-powered dual-drive solution.

For Mac systems, My Passport Pro has user-selectable RAID functionality to deliver high performance.  The drive is bus-powered without the need for power adapters or extra cables. My Passport Pro is available in 2 TB and 4 TB capacities.

Directly powered via the integrated Thunderbolt cable — a design unique to WD — performance of My Passport Pro clocks in at speeds up to 233 MB/s.

Another key feature of My Passport Pro is its user-selectable RAID function, which lets users choose data striping (RAID 0) for high performance or mirroring (RAID 1) for data redundancy. Superior to both FireWire 800 and USB 3.0, the Thunderbolt technology of My Passport Pro makes video manipulation quick and easy—with the ability to copy a 22 GB high-definition video file in half the time typically required by a USB 3.0 drive working in RAID 0 format.

Consisting of two 2.5-inch hard drives housed in analuminum enclosure, My Passport Pro is shock-tested for extra durability.

My Passport Pro comes with a two-year limited regional warranty. Pricing for the 2 TB My Passport Pro is approximately Rs. 24,000 and the 4 TB model is approximately Rs. 33,000 ($665).
