The Go Anywhere WD Wireless Storage Drive
The My Passport Wireless drive is a simple way to connect all computing and mobile devices to content without any wires or Internet connection which is great news for business travellers, families on a road trip or creative professionals working in the field.
Additionally, when you need to transfer large amounts of data, the My Passport Wireless drive provides the option of using a high speed USB 3.0 connection.
“As we celebrate its 10th anniversary, the success of WD’s My Passport line of portable hard drives is unprecedented,” says Jim Welsh, executive vice president for WD. “Our new My Passport Wireless drive continues the evolution, resolving a common problem for today’s mobile consumer; too many devices with limited storage and no way to offload their content and free up space on-the-go.
“Now, consumers will have one drive to easily store content from all their devices and enjoy that content anywhere they go,” Welsh adds.
The My Passport Wireless drive broadcasts its own wireless network which allows up to eight devices to connect at the same time and access any content stored on the drive. Available in 1TB or 2TB models, users now have the ability to store and access up to hundreds of hours of movies and music, as well as photos and other digital files, from their smartphones and tablets which are typically limited by minimal storage capacity.
The portable wireless drive features Wireless N with MIMO technology for enhanced wireless performance so users can access and transfer files quickly, as well as stream up to four HD videos simultaneously.
The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to six hours of continuous streaming and up to 20 hours of standby power, making the drive a perfect travel companion.
With the My Passport Wireless drive users have anywhere, anytime access to their favourite digital content by using WD’s award winning WD My Cloud mobile app for iOS or Android mobile devices. The WD My
Cloud mobile app easily connects to a My Passport Wireless drive for simple product setup, and once setup the mobile app provides intuitive navigation, sharing and playback of the drive’s content.
The WD My Cloud app also helps unify all of a users’ content under a single app and user interface, by allowing access to content on the My Passport Wireless drive, the WD My Cloud family of personal cloud storage, and on major public cloud services such as Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive from just one app.
In additional to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, the portable wireless storage drive is an ideal companion for cameras with its integrated SD card slot. Whether shooting large commercial photography and video production or just taking photos and videos of the family while on vacation, the My Passport Wireless drive will never let you miss a moment because your memory cards are full.
The built-in SD card slot lets users copy their content from the SD card to the My Passport Wireless drive to make room for more memorable moments. Additionally, with integrated FTP, the drive connects to compatible wireless cameras so that users can automatically transfer photos from their cameras to the drive as they are taking them.
My Passport Wireless will be distributed in Australia by Synnex and Dicker Data. It is available now and retails for $299 for the 2TB and $249 for the 1TB.
