The WD My Passport 2TB portable hard drive is down to $59.99 on Amazon. Several different colors have dropped this low, including Black, Blue, and Red. This is a match for the lowest we've ever seen for the WD My Passport. While the Black and Blue versions have hit this price a couple times before, the Red one doesn't drop in price nearly as much. No matter what color you choose, it's a good price and the hard drive regularly sells between $65 and $70.
The My Passport is a popular hard drive, and the 2TB version has 4.4 stars based on 123 reviews on Amazon. The drive is designed for automatic backups with the WD Backup software and password protection via hardware encryption. You can keep your data safe, and the design is reliable enough that it will survive the trip in your backpack. It uses a USB 3.0 port that is backward compatible with previous generations. You will need to reformat it to get it to work on Mac computers, but it works with Windows 7 and up out of the box. It also comes with a three-year warranty from WD.
If you want something with some faster read and write speeds, try upgrading to the WD My Passport solid state drive. It's also built to be portable and survive getting jostled around. And it has a lot of the same backup and password protection features. You won't be able to get as much space for the same price, but the speed upgrade might be worth it.
