What carries up to 400,000 photos, half a million songs or 150 hours of video (DV format), and is compact enough to fit easily in your shirt pocket? Why, Western Digitals new My Passport 2TB portable hard drive of course!
Anyone who works with high res photos and HD video knows the importance of having ample storage capacity. Easy enough when youre at home or in the office, safely snuggled up next to your RAID 5. But what about when youre out on the road or employ a workflow that requires you to carry large files between multiple systems? High capacity storage in a mobile format is essential for those with requirements such as these.
Our editing tools keep getting smaller and smaller! Trust us, we're not complaining. That's why we were so impressed with Western Digital's new 7mm thin hard drive for Ultrabooks and other super-slim mobile workstations. This HDD comes in 320GB and 500GB varieties, meaning video producers will have tons of space to work on the road before they have to reach for external drives. While solid state drives are preferred for speed, they still have yet to rival HDDs for sheer quantity of storage. We hope to see more of these types of ultra slim, high capacity drives.
