External drives aren’t new and are useful if you move around a lot and need to offload data. This is especially true for creators like graphic artists, photographers, and video editors. If you are looking for a new external storage solution, then you might want to check out Western Digital’s new My Passport SSDs.
For quite a while, one of the reasons why HDDs were favored over SSDs is due to storage size limitations. This is because in the early days of the SSD, they were considerably smaller compared to HDDs, making them less than ideal if you have a lot of files. Plus, the prices of SSDs back then were also considerably higher.
Wireless chargers are typically not an exciting topic to cover as they differ only in maximum charging Wattage and price. However, WesternDigital/Sandisk have found the intersection between charging and backups, and this could save your data without requiring any effort.
Western Digital’s Black series of performance-focused SSDs have been quite popular and the company is now shipping the latest iteration of this series. It’s evidently tilting the brand towards gamers which is in line with the trend of premium PC hardware being branded as essential for gamers. The WD Black SN750 SSDs are available now and will soon be available with an optional heatsink as well.
It is fair to say that pretty much any computer hardware can be used to game on, it’s just a matter of whether or not it is optimized for performance. For example while not necessarily ideal for gaming, integrated GPUs can be used for certain games for those who aren’t too concerned about graphics and frame rates.
Storage capacities have increased significantly over the past few years as prices have come down and the technology has advanced. We’ve still not hit the peak as yet. Western Digital has now announced what it calls the world’s first 14TB hard drive. Yes, you get 14 terabytes of storage in a single hard drive, called the HGST Ultrastar Hs14. Rolls off the tongue pretty nicely, doesn’t it?
The Nintendo Switch uses microSD cards to expand on its memory, which is assuming you will use it if you plan on going full digital with your game purchases versus purchasing them in their cartridge form. If you do, then you know that there are various microSD cards out there that you can use, which can be a bit confusing as to which might be “best” or most suitable.
#IFA2017 – Back in the day, memory cards could not store much data on them, and those that did were pretty damn expensive. Fast forward to today and it’s a different story where we can buy microSD cards with a few gigabytes for pretty cheap, although it looks like the folks at Western Digital are pushing the envelope with their latest offering.

Western Digital today announced the launch of two new SSD lineups. It’s not surprising even though Western Digital is best known for its hard drives. That’s because the company acquired SanDisk for $19 billion last year, and SanDisk has quite a lot of experience in making SSDs. The two lineups are branded under Western Digital and SanDisk each and are the first SSDs to be based on SanDisk’s 64 layer […]
Back in the day, the idea of a hard drive storing 1TB worth of data was enough to make eye pop out of heads. However 1TB these days has become the norm, and given how movies and games are starting to be offered at 4K resolution, 1TB is starting to feel a little restrictive, but not to worry because it looks like Western Digital has a 12TB hard drive for […]
Portable SSDs aren’t new, but just the other day Western Digital launched their first portable SSD with USB-C. Given that more computer makers are expected to eventually adopt USB-C in the future, it represented an option for customers who own USB-C laptops or for those who want to futureproof themselves.
If you’ve ever bought a hard drive you might have come across Western Digital. Its My Passport lineup of external hard drives is quite popular in part due to their affordability and reliability. Interestingly, the company hasn’t been in a rush to come out with a portable solid state drive, the storage solution preferred by those who are willing to spend more money for better performance. It’s rectifying that today.
Back in the day it used to cost an arm and a leg to own an SSD. However fast forward to today, SSDs are a lot more affordable. Granted they still aren’t exactly cheap, but they’re definitely more accessible than they were back then. Now if you’re looking to outfit your computer with a new SSD, Western Digital has two new options for you.
