WD ships five limited edition My Passport drives

WD has worked together with design Sstudents at the California State University to create five new limited edition My Passport Essential portable drives. The limited edition designs are now available online through WD and in Best Buy stores. Boom Box, Black Hole, Cityscape, Fuchsia Leaf and Wave all have custom imprints instead of the usual solid colors.

Each drive has a capacity of 500GB and ships with WD SmartWare software for a simple, visual interface of the drive's contents. The contents can be protected with a user-selectable password and 256-bit hardware-based encryption. Power and connection to computers is accomplished entirely through the USB cable.

Each of the new design drives is priced at $120, or $10 more than the solid-colored My Passport Essential drives in the same capacity.

    Limited edition hard drives?

    The idea strikes me as completely and totally moronic.

    Definitely in the "wishful thinking" marketing department.
