WD My Pass­port Pro

Store im­ages safely with this ul­tra fast por­ta­ble hard drive

An­swer­ing the need for a large-ca­pac­ity por­ta­ble stor­age de­vice, the My Pass­port Pro fea­tures a max­i­mum ca­pac­ity of two ter­abytes. This huge ca­pac­ity is achieved with two lap­top-sized hard drives that can be set up as one large stor­age area, a mir­rored backup, or as two sep­a­rate drives.

The alu­minium case feels durable. De­signed pri­mar­ily for use with Macs, there’s a Thun­der­bolt ca­ble at­tached, which trans­fers both data and power. Speed tests show an aver­age of 196 megabytes per sec­ond write times (com­pared to 71 megabytes per sec­ond when the same test was run on a sim­i­lar Firewire 800 drive). It’s sim­ple to set up, and if you’re a PC user there are Thun­der­bolt cards that will en­able you to use this drive. For fast, se­cure and por­ta­ble stor­age for pho­tog­ra­phers there is presently noth­ing else that comes close to this.

If your Nikon is one that pro­duces large RAW files, like a D800, this an­swers

your stor­age prayers
