Western Digital, which owns the brand G-DRIVE, has created a powerful new external hard drive. G-DRIVE is a popular brand among photographers, and the new drive is perfect for those creatives with the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops, which are USB-C only. Andrew Orr gives us the scoop.
Western Digital is finally selling an external SSD. This solid state drive is part of its My Passport series of portable drives. As you can see from the photo, it’s a tiny and highly portable external SSD capable of achieving data transfers of 515 Mb/s. If you’re looking to buy an external SSD for your MacBook, this looks like a great purchase. Western Digital put USB-C ports into this drive, so you won’t need an annoying dongle to use it with your Mac Book Pro with Touch Bar or MacBook. If you don’t have a USB-C laptop, have no fear. Every drive comes with a USB-A adapter in the box to use with other laptops. It’s available in three sizes: 256GB at US$99, 512GB at US$199, 1TB at US$399.
