WD My Passport Edge External Hard Drive Review
20 December 2012
Excerpt: When USB flash drives first came to market it was a revolution. They delivered a solution that offered much larger storage capacity compared to floppy disks, packaged in something about the size of a person’s thumb. Suddenly, you could just save your papers, presentations, and even a smattering of photos onto a little flash drive and safely take it with you anywhere.
Excerpt: The Western Digital My Passport Edge is one of the latest bus-powered USB 3.0 hard drives out there. There are both pre-formatted versions for the Mac and PC out there, currently priced at $99 and $89, respectively.

WD My Passport Edge 500GB Portable Hard Drive Review
20 November 2012
Excerpt: Back in 2011 we reviewed the WD My Passport Essential 500GB USB 3.0 portable hard drive and found it to be an amazing product that worked as advertised. Western Digital introduced its newest version of the My Passport line of portable hard drives with the debut of My Passport Edge in September 2012. The My Passport Edge still features 500 GB of storage and a USB 3.0 interface for fast read/write speeds, but it uses a faster hard drive and the enclosure has been updated.
Conclusion: The Western Digital My Passport Edge is a convenient way to carry 500GB of storage in a sleek, compact pocket hard drive. It's also convenient to buy, since there's only one choice of capacity and color.
Conclusion: The Western Digital My Passport Edge is a good hard drive, and will serve you well if you get one. It's fast, and it comes with an impressively long warranty. However, the Seagate Backup Plus has an interchangeable interface, which is a better choice for techie users who need to use other interfaces like FireWire or Thunderbolt.
Pros: Compact drive, USB 3.0 interface, Very speedy in benchmarks, Excellent three year warranty
Cons: Pricey given the 500GB capacity, Only has a USB port
Excerpt: In the WD My Passport Edge portable drive , Western Digital delivers a drive with a solid combination of looks and performance, and throws an excellent software bundle to go with it. See all Storage reviews .
