great concept,but WD can keep their products

  • Summary: Quote from the manual "My Passport Edge fits perfectly into the busy life of a road warrior", I'm not sure if I would class myself as a Road Warrior but here's my thoughts on it. The unit is small 110mm x 80mm x 13mm, housed in a smart looking plastic case, is USB powered and comes with a 17" long...
