WD intros 1TB My Passport SE for Mac

updated 09:20 am EDT, Tue March 16, 2010

Drive equipped with hardware encryption

Western Digital has expanded its line of My Passport SE drives with two new capacities, 750GB and 1TB, formatted in HFS+ for Macs. Despite the higher capacities, both external drives still draw power from a USB connection rather than a dedicated AC adapter.

The company claims the SE drives can support maximum transfer rates of up to 480Mbps. Data can be protected using 356-bit hardware-based encryption if necessary.

The 1TB My Passport SE is now available directly from the company for $200, while the 750GB model can be purchased for $180.

    Of course it's still USB-powered

    Higher capacity doesn't mean it takes any more energy to spin the platters nor move the read/write heads of a hard drive. Of course it's still USB-powered, just like the rest of the line of drives.
