We approve of the ongoing miniaturisation of external hard drives, but the process has its limits. Western Digital's latest My Passport Essential is among the smallest drives of its class, but WD's choice of a tiny connector could be the product's down...
Bottom line For these reasons and more, we would like to be able to recommend WD's new-design My Passport Essential, but we can't. It's not a bad drive, and while the software-on-virtual-CD system will annoy geeks, it's a good idea for the less techni...
