The WD My Passport Go SSD features a 1TB capacity which is plenty of space for photos, videos, documents, and more. It offers data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps and it connects easily via USB 3.0 (though it is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, too). It works with PC or Mac and there’s automatic backup software as well as optional password-protection for your data.
As well as being capacious and speedy, this WD SSD is purpose-built for on-the-go usage. It features a rugged design with an impact-resistant rubber bumper that absorbs the shock of drops, while the compact size makes it a great portable travelling companion (when, you know, you can travel again). The free 64GB flash drive is a nice added extra and is perfect for keeping in your computer bag for when you need to transfer some files in a pinch.
Your purchase is backed by plenty of positive customer reviews as well as a three-year manufacturer’s warranty. If this option from WD is not for you, check out our list of the best external solid state drive roundup for some other choice picks.
