First Look: WD My Passport Edge

2:04 /

The My Passport Edge won't cut anything but still make a Swiss Army knife of a portable drive.

-Hey guys, Dong Ngo here and today I am thinking of some serious cutting. And don't worry, there wouldn't be any bleeding because I'm using this for the job, a totally new portable drive from WD. Now as you can see this is probably the least sharp object you have seen but folks at WD for some reason call it the Edge. This is the My Passport Edge portable drive. Now, I don't know why they call it that way but I'm happy anyway that the name at least help differentiate this drive from the rest of the My Passport family. Let's meet a bunch of them. And this drive is actually very different, as you can see this very thin and very small. This is probably among the thinnest, tiniest drive on the market. Nonetheless, this comes with [unk] space and support USB 3.0. All you need is this cable here included for it to work. The drive also-- well, with USB 2.0 ports. Now in my testing the Edge didn't really edge out others to be the fastest but it's very fast anyway. It also comes with WD Smartware that help and back up your computer and secure data in store. The drives are actually very nice, it feel solid on the hand and also in your pocket and yes, it can stay there because it's quite small. Oh you know, I think it may quite a handy portable storage solution for a mobile user. Now the question is how much it is? It currently costs $110 which is more expensive than other of the same capacity. Or if you like me who think of cutting all the time without wanted cost bleeding, it's quite an inspirational product. Why cutting in my house? No particular reason other than the fact that once again, my name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the My Passport Edge from WD. Don't use it for cooking.
