With mobile devices creeping into every part of our lives, on-board storage becomes a limitation, especially if you have one of those high-megapixel and 4K capable smartphones or tablets. The Western Digital (WD) My Passport Wireless lets you share and backup data wirelessly from your smart gadgets and computers. The drive is portable and has an SD card slot in case you want to take a backup from the card directly on the field.
The My Passport Wireless can be connected with up to eight devices simultaneously. You can instantly share your data using any device connected to the drive.
The My Passport Wireless has a rechargeable battery, which frees you of the requirement of an external power source. WD claims that the battery can last for up to six hours of continuous video streaming or up to 20 hours of standby. You can connect with the Wireless and access your files using smartphone, tablet, connected TVs and other DLNA/UPnP devices with the WD My Cloud mobile app. The device can also function as a WiFi hub, allowing you to share an internet connection with multiple devices.
You can set up a Wi-Fi password for every photo, video, music and important file. You can also protect your drive from USB access using Drive Lock in the device dashboard. Data can be transferred from a computer using the USB 3.0 interface. WD claims that the drive is durable, shock-tolerant and reliable. The My Passport Wireless carries a two-year limited warranty.
The drive is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS X. It is available at all major retail shops in two variants— 1TB and 2TB. |SP
