The My Passport SSD from Western Digital is an external hard drive that is made for Windows as well as macOS and OS X and has up to 1 TB of storage. Western Digital launched the My Passport SSD in March 2017; It is a compact 9 cm long gadget in the look of a sandwich egg for the rich. In this post I would like to show you an alternative from Samsung in addition to the WD device, which has been around since the beginning of 2016.
With this external SSD hard drive you get either 256 GB, 512 MB or 1 TB of storage for on the go. You can also achieve data rates of up to 3.1 MB / s via USB-C 515. Photos, videos, folders with countless files, software and so on are all quickly backed up externally. The My Passport SSD hard drive from WD is small and handy.
Here I have summarized the technical details for you:
The price of the My Passport SSD shows that it was only released in March 2017. A device that celebrated its first birthday in January 2017 is much cheaper. Samsung's external SSD hard drive is currently the bestseller on Amazon and out of 158 reviews, 120 reviews have 5 stars and 15 have 4 stars.
Together with the lower price, these are several reasons to show this FP as an alternative:
A third way to connect an SSD disk to a Mac or PC via USB is to insert an actually internal hard disk in an external housing with a USB connection. So if you still have an SSD or an HDD lying around, then you only need the right accessories, which are also much cheaper, and you already have a mobile disk for photos, videos, backup without cloud, etc. Especially when on the move If there is no internet and you cannot access the cloud, an external FP is worth gold.
