WD calls down a Thunderbolt with new, high speed My Passport Pro

Need bigger, faster storage, in a smaller, more convenient form factor? WD thought you did too.

Thunderbolt-connected external drives have been a thing for a while now, but fast as they are they can be pretty low on convenience. They're large, for one thing, and - up to now - have required external power to keep those platters spinning.

Enter the slim WD My Passport Pro, and that all changes.

Aimed at professionals such as photographers and movie makers, the new external drive cuts down on weight by boasting a directly bus-powered Thunderbolt cable. With user-configurable RAID options for the two 2.5in drives housed in the Passport Pro's chassis, it's as convenient to use as it is easy to lug around.

Users can also keep tabs on the drive's condition via the included software. The Passport Pro is formatted out of the box for Mac systems, however.

The drive comes in 2TB and 4TB version, costing $499 and $649 respectively.
