If you have been waiting to pick up an external drive in the hopes that Western Digital might unveil an SSD version then you are in luck.

Today WD launched their first portable SSD drive called the My Passport SSD. This new drive features a similar design to the redesigned versions of the My Passport portable hard drives, with 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB of flash storage options.

It also provides sequential read speeds at 515MB/s, which isn’t the faster but it is up there with other portable SSD competitors.

Western Digital has also fitted the drive with a USB-C port for syncing (there’s also a USB-A adapter in the box), along with 256-bit hardware encryption and a body that is said to be capable of surviving up to a 6.5-foot drop.

You can pick up and find out more about the new portable SSD drive from Western Digital at the source link below, where you can pick up the 256GB version for £109, the 512GB version for £179, and the 1TB version for £349.
