If you are in the market for a new solid-state portable drive (SSD), one of the latest Amazon IPA agreements may be right for you.
In fact, the online retailer offers a decent discount, if few, on the new generation of Western Digital (WD) My Passport SSD. The discount takes about 11 percent ($ 20) off its normal retail price of $ 190. And so, Amazon shoppers can only receive $ 170 now.
In terms of this deal, $ 170 buys a number of useful features for you as 1TB of storage and speed transfer files “5-MB” per second.
This reduced SSD also includes hardware encryption (and the option to set a password), its own software that provides its own support for backup and security services, and has To print with USB Type-C gateway. (But also USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and USB-A compatible.)
This SSD also offers an automatic backup feature that, according to Western Digital, can automatically support your files either to the drive itself or to your Dropbox account.
SSD My Passport SSD was fairly well received by Digital Trends and even captured the place on our list of the best external hard drives in 2019. On this list, the Best Budget Drive title. That 's not surprising given its smooth design, ease of use, fast file transfer to its apparent ability "to withstand a drop of up to 6.5 feet."
The MyDB SSD Passport is compatible with Windows computers running Windows 7 or newer. And while this SSD is compatible with Mac operating systems, it has only full compatibility with a few versions of the macOS (High Sierra, Sierra, or El Capitan). For use with other operating systems, this SSD may need to be reformulated.
At the moment, it's unclear when this discount promotion on Amazon will end, as there is no end date to list on the product list for this version of the SSD 1TB WD My Passport. It is also worth noting that only for the SSD My Passport has the 1TB storage capacity and the new generation style has this particular reduced price.
