Western Digital My Passport (2019) 5TB Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

WD has released a new My Passport that is both slimmer and comes with even more capacity than previous models, up to 5TB. The device leverages USB 3.2 Gen1 for fast transfer speeds. The drive is ideal for consumers that have several photos, videos, music, and documents that they need to take with them. My Passport also allows for import from social media and cloud storage for those looking to keep memories safe. Out of the box the device is ready to go with either Windows 10 or macOS Mojave depending on which model bought.

Did you open it up, to look over the real drive inside?

Either WD has begun making 2.5" 5TB drives ... or they swallowed their pride and bought drives from Seagate. Finding a Seagate drive inside a WD external - now that would be a front-page story.

Hah, can't really get at these any more without destroying the case. But this is pretty typical. New drives are almost always debuted in external enclosures like this, then get the bare drive treatment. I think they find the external space to be a less risky proving ground for new tech.
