Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about Hard disc (HD) Externo Portátil WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 Black (WD My Passport 2TB Portable External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 Black) acquired on Amazon and sent to Brazil by Shipito, whose purchase I have described in a previous article.
This is the third Hard disc (HD) Externo Portátil WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 Black that adquiro. Already talked about the other two in a January article here in Skooter Blog, which I recommend reading, it will not make the product review again. The first were bought to back up the PC, one for myself and one for my wife.
This third WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 It was acquired to be connected to my HTPC, at Zotac ZBOX ID83 Core i3-3120M 2.5GHz Intel HM76 DDR3 Wi-Fi A&V Gigabit Ethernet Mini PC Barebone System (ZBOX-ID83-U). I chose to put the operating system in Drive de Estado Sólido (SSD) Sandisk Extreme 120GB 2.5″ SATA III (550MB/s na Leitura e 510MB/s na Escrita) (SanDisk Extreme 120GB 2.5″ SATA III Solid State Drive SSD (Read 550MB/s, Write 510MB/s)), so it was quite fast, but with little room for photos, videos and ROMs Emulators I use it.
As or Zotac ZBOX ID83 does not support a second HD, I chose the WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 as ideal solution, because ZBOX has USB port 3.0 and thus access to External HDD is very fast. Using Cubby, automatically synchronize my photos with the My Passport. I can upload them directly to the network via NAS, but you prefer them locally, since access to the NAS has a certain latency, even with the network and Gigabit Ethernet, it's kind of inconvenient to view photos, they are being loaded one by one at an interval of a few seconds. The latency is acceptable for movies or music, it only occurs when starting, but for photos is complicated. With the ROMs is the same case, gives to access them on the NAS, but MAME to lock to read one by one when the ROMs directory is selected, so I prefer locally have them also.
Ultimately, the Hard disc (HD) Externo Portátil WD My Passport 2TB USB 3.0 Black is a great option for those who want an external drive with plenty of room, com USB 3.0, and portable, being powered by the USB bus, without external source. Currently, 2TB is as much as a portable external hard drive holds.
The WD My Passport is available in various colors. I opted for black, Traditional and discreet, but blue, red, silver and white are the other colors available. When you buy paid $ 135,35, but at this point it is costing US $ 112,95, which compensates for the recent rise in the dollar.
