Western Digital 1tb USB Powered External Hard Drive: What More Could You Ask for?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 9, 2009


Western Digital recently introduced the Essential SE edition of their popular My Passport USB-powered external hard drives. The My Passport Essential SE comes in two sizes, 750GB and 1TB, with the same slim and simple case as the other My Passport drives. And did I say they’re USB-powered?

Seriously: A terabyte’s worth of data in your (cargo pants’) pocket.  According to Western Digital’s estimates, that’s equivalent to 200,000 pictures, or 250,000 mp3 files, or 380 hours of DVD quality video, or 120 hours of HD quality video. And Western Digital is sure that the 1TB drive is worth $300 (USD). Unfortunately, even though the press release says that the 1TB drive is already available online, I can’t seem to find a store that’s selling it. Fortunately for those who reckon they don’t need the extra 250GB, the 750GB drive is available at Western Digital’s online store for a much cheaper $200.
