About this deal

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.

Wi-Fi password protection helps to keep your photography, videos, music and other important files safe from unauthorized wireless access. Since the drive is capable of FTP transfers, app’s like FileBrowser Biz should deliver higher speeds with iOS, than “default” SMB based connections. Note the ARW RAW format of the A7 III was readable even though it’s not yet on WD’s compatibility list.This is obviously a huge improvement over the wireless options and the only way you’ll exploit the faster speed of the internal SSD versus a traditional hard disk (as the bandwidth on the SD slot is also limited as I’ll show in the next section). 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. WD isn’t the only company to offer self-contained storage solutions designed to operate without a laptop. Previously I owned a ColorSpace portable backup drive which did a similar job, albeit much slower due to its spinning HDD. Unfortunately, as cool as adding a cloud service might sound, I did not find it to be of much use for a number of reasons.

In practice it all works too, making it an ideal device for anyone who wants the security of easy backup in the field without having to carry a laptop all the time.At the above IO rates I wouldn’t expect the SSD version of the WD My Passport Wireless Unit to perform much faster over WiFi. Being able to stream video to multiple devices simultaneously may not be the most sociable way to travel, but if you have unruly kids like we do, it can certainly avoid premature hair loss! Above: Connecting the WD My Passport Wireless SSD over USB 3 allows you to unlock its full potential speed. When I copied approximately 53 GB of data to Gnarbox, it took a total of 45 minutes and 27 seconds, something I was very unhappy about, as it only took around 11 minutes to copy the same data to my computer. In either case, you’ll need to switch on the drive and connect your device to its Wifi access point – the My Passport Wireless SSD broadcasts two Wifi networks, one at 5GHz for speed and the other at 2.
