The WD My Passport SSD 512GB is a compact, external SSD for when you're on the go. With a speed of 515MB/s, you'll rapidly transfer your HD footage or large collections of high-resolution images and photos within about 10 seconds to the drive. The drive has a professional look to it, thanks to the half-glossy, half-matte casing. The hardware-base 256-bit AES encryption protects the SSD against online theft, and it protects sensitive material. The WD My Passport SSD is shockproof up to a fall of about 2 meters. Your files are still safe, even if it falls off a table. The SSD has a USB-C connector with USB 3.1 support, so you'll enjoy the fastest USB speed on modern devices. If you don't have USB-C yet, simply connect via USB-A using the included adapter. It also works directly from the box with Windows and Mac. You'll automatically make backups, thanks to the WD software when you connect the external SSD.
