We’ve been fans of WD’s My Passport portable hard drives for years. These drives are a great companion for your Ultrabook where hard drive space is limited and are extremely reliable as well. WD’s latest iteration of the drive is the My Passport Ultra, which is a USB 3.0 portable hard drive. They were nice enough to send us over their Metal Edition, which has a very sexy Aluminum design. Not only is this going to look great, but it will add extra protection to the drive as well. The drive features a very fast USB 3.0 connection so your transfers will take no time at all. The drive comes with the WD SmartWare Pro backup software so you can setup and schedule local as well as cloud backups with no problem at all. Let’s take a look at the My Passport Ultra Metal Edition and see what it can do!
Data redundancy is a thing that not many people think about. I myself lost about a year of photos because I had them stored on a drive that died and did not have a backup. One of the easiest ways to have data redundancy is to setup a RAID 1 array. Vantec wants to makes this easy with their new NexStar MX Dual 2.5-inch hard drive enclosure (NST-225MX-S3). This small enclosure supports two 2.5-inch hard drives that you can put in Individual/JBOD/RAID0/RAID1 modes. So if you are not going for data redundancy, but rather speed you can set them up in a RAID 0 array. Since this enclosure supports 2.5-inch drives that means you can use solid state drives! The enclosure uses USB 3.0 so your transfer speeds will be very fast too! Let’s take a look and see what it can do!
