Western Digital Review and Giveaway – My Passport Studio, External Hard Drive (Closed)

By Holly Reisem Hanna

Thanks to everyone who entered the Western Digital Giveaway! There were a total of 155 valid entries and the winner was chosen using random.org.

Congratulations to #4, Joe K, enjoy your prize!

If you’re an entrepreneur, freelancer, direct sales consultant or blogger, it’s more than likely that your computer is the hub of your business. Now imagine for a second, that your computer was stolen, lost, obliterated by a virus, or destroyed in a natural disaster – what would you do?

If you don’t have a backup plan or system in place for all of the files on your computer, you’re setting yourself up for a disaster. So when the folks over at Western Digital asked me if I wanted to check out the My Passport Studio, I jumped at the opportunity.

My Passport Studio is a portable, compact, high-speed, external hard drive that is the ideal for the creative professional on the go. With storage options ranging from 500 GB to 2TB, you’ll never run out of storage. Super easy to use, you just plug the device into your computer and click start. It took approximately 40 minutes to download all my files, and it takes less than a minute for weekly updates.

Now thanks to Western Digital, we’re thrilled to offer one lucky reader a My Passport Studio, External Hard Drive 1 TB for Mac (value $199.00)!

My Passport Studio portable hard drive comes standard with the high-performance features and premium style that creative professionals demand. Two super-fast FireWire 800 ports and a MacBook-inspired, metal enclosure make this drive the ideal companion for Mac professionals.

    Awww… I really like this. Too bad it’s for US Residents only. I used to work as a sales executive in an IT distribution company and WD Passports & MyBooks were some of the products I sold. Why I didn’t buy one for myself back then is a mystery to me. :D

    This may be a crazy question, have any of these ever failed? In other words has anyone ever completely trusted one of these devises and something go wrong and they lose everything? I’m just curious, i’m looking for some better way of saving files and if this is the best then it’s what i’m looking for. Thanks in advance.
    John,

      I’ve always asked myself the same question! I think that you should always have the important stuff in more than one place; cloud storage can be a good option to back-up your stuff.

    I’m a new mother and my husband and I took a lot of pictures of our son and we are quickly running out of disk space on our laptop so we would put this 1 TB WD external HDD to good use because we would be able to create back ups, put pictures on the external HDD and store them away in our fireproof lockbox for safe keeping!
