I was able to get ~168Mbits/sec(21MBtyes) using FTP as a test on the Passport Wireless Pro HDD(WD Blue 2. Summary The WD My Passport Wireless SSD is a highly versatile device that lets you backup your photos in the field without lugging around a laptop or power supply. If you find yourself wanting to sync up your data to the cloud via Dropbox or some other service, your best bet would be to connect the drive directly to your computer, then configure your desktop client to sync with the folders on the device. For a laptop user, having a built-in SSD with an SD card slot would be sufficient, since power could be provided through the USB port. Next is the USB 3 port, used for charging the device and to connect it directly to computers for the fastest data transfer speed.

If the backup process starts, you should wait until the copy process fully completes before attempting to remove the card. Sometimes I have my laptop with me at the end of a wedding day, but find that trying to start my backup process with it is inconvenient whilst on the move. or Thunderbolt interface to connect external media card readers, it would make the WD My Passport Wireless SSD a far more practical device for the masses. Before I go I’ll copy a couple of movies and documentaries onto the drive, and then while I’m sitting waiting in an airport or hanging around in my room I can connect my iPad to the drive and stream something to watch.The WD My Passport Wireless SSD is designed to backup the contents of SD memory cards in the field, without the need for a laptop or an AC power supply. It’s also important to remember most cameras now have built-in Wifi, allowing you to browse and copy photos onto your tablet or phone without the need for anything else. The only thing I don’t like is the size – at about twice to three times the size of an equivalent power bank, this is not a small device to carry around, and it takes up more space in the camera bag.

There are a number of important options in those tabs and you might want to go through each one individually. With an SSD inside and protective bumper outside, your content is safeguarded from shock, vibrations and drops, even when the drive is in operation. I was interested in purchasing one of these drives to use for back-up on a forthcoming trip, the main benefit being that it has a buiilt-in SD card reader and can make back-ups without being connected to a computer. Again a faster SD card could see this process completed sooner, but generally I’d insert the card and let it finish the task unattended, sometimes with the drive in a bag or on a car seat.By default, the option is not enabled, which means that you would first have to insert a memory card, then press the “Battery / SD” button on the side of the device to start the backup process. The WD My Passport Wireless SSD may work quite happily as a wireless or wired storage device for computers, but it’s also designed for those who want to leave their laptop at home and access their content via a smartphone or tablet. As you can see, there is a dedicated power button, along with an SD / Battery button that is used to check battery level, or start copying the contents of an inserted SD card. port, you can easily transfer media from an external USB storage device like a DLSR or CF card reader.

You can either do this using the free WD My Cloud app for Android or iOS smartphones and tablets, or via a web browser on a computer. Once power is connected, the four LCD indicator lights will blink and provide information on how much charging is left to do. port and the one-touch copy button let you easily transfer files from compatible card readers and external USB storage devices. For 1Tb SSD, and the RAV, and the USB Hub, i spend about 370 EUR, and gives me more options than the WD My Passport – think thats about 520 EUR for 1Tb and does not allow me to copy from XQD.If you choose to view all files, then each occupies a separate line with a small thumbnail on the left and the name to its side. I transferred the same 53 GB data twice and managed to back up another full 32 GB SD card and I still had 79% battery life left, even with the device powered on for quite a while during the process of writing this review. Above: One on side of the drive you’ll find a spring-loaded SD slot which like those in camera bodies will swallow a card whole without any portion sticking out; push it in and it’ll spring out sufficiently for you to grab it. It is exciting to see manufacturers like Western Digital create efficient and portable backup solutions for photographers.

If you connect wirelessly, whether directly or via an access point, multiple devices can access the device simultaneously and there’s no need for cables; connecting via a shared access point also means your device still enjoys internet connectivity (assuming the access point also does), but data transfer to and from the drive will be slower than a direct connection.

Unfortunately, the results were very disappointing – it took a total of 34 minutes and 12 seconds to back up the same data, something it was able to do at less than half the time with the built-in SD card reader. Designed to work seamlessly with mobile devices, and an SD card reader built-in, you get an all-in-one drive to streamline your workflow. To conclude, it takes a while to know whether the My Passport Wireless SSD is something you actually need, or just a product that’s providing a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. As for the buttons, since powering the device on/off requires the wireless network to boot up/turn off, there’s a delay between you pressing the button and something actually happening.
