Distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is now stocking Western Digital’s (WD) refreshed range of My Passport external hard drives that are sleek, feature specially-engineered scratch and fingerprint resistant casings and most importantly, are now available in 500GB, 1TB and a whopping 2TB capacity.  The My Passport external drives feature ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity; USB 2.0 compatibility; WD SmartWare continuous, automatic backup software and WD Security for password protection and hardware encryption.

Says Zandré Rudolph, Retail Business Unit Manager at DCC: “The continuous creation of digital content is driving the need for more storage coupled with mobility and convenience.  This has become apparent not just because of the amount of data, but also the increasing quality of data such as High Definition (HD) videos. The WD My Passport drive meets these digital demands of a content driven market with its high storage capacity and small and appealing form factor.”

The ultra portable My Passport drives afford consumers plenty of secure storage for all their photos, videos, music and other important files, in an amazing, pocket-sized enclosure. The included software offers the flexibility to customise the drive to a user’s storage preferences: installing all features; just the components needed; or using the drive without the software.

Adds Rudolph, “The two year limited warranty on these units, together with their added security and flexibility features, is evidence of WD’s commitment to providing reliable, quality products.  Consumers can confidently backup, store and carry their entire digital lives around in style; peace of mind for busy consumers on the go.”

The My Passport drives are available in black and silver at selected retailers for recommended retail prices of: 500GB- R999, 1TB –R1299, 2TB-R2499.  All prices are inclusive of V.A.T
