WD's My Passport SSD is a tiny thing

Storage
Hello, this is the "My Passport SSD" from WD, now this one's a huge deal because, well, it's really tiny. Take a look at the previous model here, this the old "My Passport", and this is the new "My Passport SSD". Let me put it this way; this is me, and this is how most Asians are wrongfully perceived. And by the way, the drive is very light. In fact, it seemed lighter than the included cable right here. Yet, it's rugged. You can throw it around without damaging. Not that you should do that. Now [UNKNOWN] managed to string the drive so signficantly because this is the first one that houses A solid-state drive on the inside and that means it's also the fastest My Passport to date. In testing, it has a sustained copy speed of some 300 megabytes per second, that's really fast. Now the drive supports Port USPC Gen two with a type C port right here. And that mean it work with all the new computer with USPC and portable three port. You can also use it with existing computer with a regular USB port. Though with this adapter right here, which is also included. Now, the My Passport SSD is pre-formatted in XFAT file system, and that means it could work with Mac OS and Windows right out of the box without reformatting. Drive feature encryption to protect data against loss and theft. Remember though, if you turn on that feature and you forget the password, you lose the data too. You know, this is the [UNKNOWN] drive for the [UNKNOWN]. Fast, rugged, yet tiny. It's not cheap though, unfortunately. This one terabyte drive here currently goes for some $360. And there are two things I don't like about it. First, it cap at just one terabyte. And secondly, it's a fingerprint magnet. Touch it and you immediately add that to the long list of reasons why we can't have nice things. But we do have a nice video about that, though. And that's because I'm the most, and this is the My Passport SSD from WD.
