Western Digital Unveils World’s Highest Capacity 2.5″ Portable HDDs

Portable storage isn’t particularly exciting, or at least, it rarely is. However, having mass storage you can travel with, move around the office, or simply chuck in a drawer between backups, can be extremely important to our daily lives. While NVMe storage is light and compact, larger capacities can be prohibitively expensive, and when you’re simply backing up documents, photos, movies or whatever, having a very expensive and super-fast SSD isn’t really what’s required for everyone.

The new WD_BLACK and SanDisk Professional product lineup looks like the perfect solution, with these drives using compact 2.5″ HDD technology, they’re extremely compact and portable, but amazingly, these little drives can now sport up to 6TB capacities. Both the WD My Passport portable HDD line, WD_BLACK P10 Game Drive and SanDisk Professional G-DRIVE ArmorATD will all now be available in 6 TB capacities.

What Western Digital Had to Say

“Expanding our portfolio with the world’s first 2.5″ 6 TB portable hard drive is an incredible technological achievement, and it enables us to continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible,” said Nitin Kachhwaha, Director of Product Management at Western Digital. “Offering up to 6 TB in such a small form factor and accessible price point gives everyone – from students, gamers, professional videographers, and more—greater flexibility to create and keep even more of their essential content in one portable drive.”

Confidently Back Up Your Next Journey with WD

With up to 6 TB capacities now available for the WD My Passport hard drive line, adventurers can store more and effortlessly backup their digital memories with peace of mind.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
