Posted on Monday, November 03 2008 @ 06:07:08 CET by

Western Digital rolled out My Passport Studio portable hard drives with the FireWire 800 interface:
WD today added a high-speed FireWire 800 interface to its popular My Passport Studio portable drive to give Mac computer users and creative professionals the fast performance they need. The new interface also makes this drive a perfect storage companion for the newly introduced Apple MacBook Pro computer. With FireWire 800/400 and USB interfaces, the new My Passport Studio portable drives offer up to 500 GB of storage capacity, are formatted for Mac computers and weigh less than 7 ounces.

A built-in, illuminated capacity gauge tells users how much space is available in the drive and because it is powered by the FireWire or USB connection, it is truly portable. In addition, My Passport Studio can be used to backup Mac laptops using Apple's Time Machine application.
  • High-performance FireWire 800 interface, plus FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interfaces for maximum flexibility;
  • Turbo-powered with high-speed turbo drivers for maximum performance (Mac computer only);
  • Illuminated capacity gauge lets users see at a glance how much space is available on the drive;
  • Compatible with Apple's Time Machine application so users can back up with Apple's Time Machine, or their favorite back up software;
  • Industry-leading 5-year limited warranty;
  • FireWire or USB powered so no separate power supply is needed; and,
  • Formatted HFS+, Journaled for use with Mac computers can be easily reformatted for use with Windows PCs.
  • The WD My Passport Studio with FireWire 800/400 interfaces are available in 400GB and 500GB capacities, for $229.99 and $249.99, respectively.
