Western Digital has just announced the update to its My Passport portable hard drives bringing in new design, enhanced security and backup features and larger capacity amounting to as much as 2TB. That was huge, right? To think that I haven’t totally consumed the 250GB storage capacity of my old WD My Passport. The portable hard drives are now available in white, black, silver, blue, and red and the storage capacity ranges from 500GB up to 2TB. The new WD My Passport portable hard drives also feature WD SmartWare which is an automatic backup software and WD Security for password protection and hardware encryption. Design-wise, My Passport was made to be more scratch and fingerprint resistant, faster USB 3.0 connectivity and still with USB 2.0 compatibility.  Finally, the most important information about these new portable hard drives – price. The 500GB My Passport portable hard drive will cost you $129.99 while the 2TB model will cost you as much as $249.99. Other capacities available and the prices are as follows, $149.99 for the 750GB, $179.99 for the 1TB and $199.99 for the 1.5TB.
