New WD Passport Drives

External hard drives typically carry with them a certain expectation not just of features, but also of appearance. Western Digital is keenly aware of this in its release of a new line of Passport portable hard drives. The new models have a streamlined design with a glossy black finish that invites attention. Capacity and performance has also increased in the new models: 60, 80, 120, and 160GB versions are available and all spin at 5,400 RPM. Each 2.5-inch drive is powered solely by the USB 2 interface and is compatible with either MacOS X or Windows 2000/XP, though included encryption and sync software functions with Windows only. Complete pricing was not announced at the launch; Western Digital is currently shipping a 120GB model for $179 and also offers 160GB for $199.
