The portable WD My Passport 2 TB hard drive on Amazon is down to $59.99. This low has been dropped by several different colors, including Black, Blue, and Red. This is a match for WD My Passport’s lowest we’ve ever seen. While the Black and Blue versions have hit this price a few times before, the Red one is not falling almost as much in price. It’s a good price no matter what color you choose, and the hard drive sells between $65 and $70 on a regular basis.
My Passport is a popular hard drive, and there are 4.4 stars in the 2 TB version based on Amazon’s 123 reviews. The drive is designed for automatic backups through hardware encryption using the WD Backup software and password protection. You can keep your data safe, and the design is reliable enough for your backpack to survive the trip. It uses a reverse-compatible USB 3.0 port with previous generations. To get it to work on Mac computers, you’ll need to reformat it, but it works with Windows 7 and up from the box. It comes with WD’s three-year guarantee as well.
Try upgrading to the WD My Passport solid-state drive if you want something with some faster read and write speeds. It’s also designed to be portable and survive jostling around. And it has a lot of the same protective features for backup and password. For the same price, you won’t be able to get as much space, but it might be worth the speed upgrade.
