WD have today unveiled some USB 3.0-powered HDDs for Mac. The drives arrive in the form of WD's My Passport for Mac range, and range up to 2TB in size. The added addition of USB 3.0 gives the My Passport for Mac drives a serious injection of speed, if you have an appropriate USB 3.0-powered Mac.

There aren't many on the market at the moment, but if you do have one, you'll enjoy much higher speeds than the USB 2.0 on most Apple systems, and with its small footprint, you can take it anywhere without having to worry about it being a nuisance.

 

My Passport for Mac drives also include password protection and hardware encryption features, which will protect your precious data in the case that someone steals it, or you were to accidentally lose it. WD's My Passport for Mac drives also slide nicely into the company's Nomad rugged case which protects your drive from dirt, dust, moisture, and sudden impacts.

 

Pricing on the My Passport for Mac is not bad at all, with MSRP pricing on the 500GB, 1TB and 2TB at $99.99, $129.99 and $199.99, respectively.
