CES 2019: Western Digital unveils new SSDs, 4TB flash drive and cloud back service

Western Digital has unveiled a number of new products at CES 2019, including the new SanDisk Extreme PRO Portable SSD, SanDisk Flashback cloud storage, the My Passport Go SSD, and a prototype of what it’s calling the world’s highest-capacity portable flash drive.

SanDisk Extreme PRO Portable SSD

The new high-performing portable SSD is estimated to be available in Spring 2019 and promises to deliver “blazing-fast sustained performance at up to 1GB/s transfer speeds and will seek to deliver IP55-rated durability”. The new SSD is designed to be ideal for creative professionals who want to move massive files quickly and do real-time editing directly from the drive.

My Passport Go

The latest addition to WD’s My Passport family is the My Passport Go SSD, which features up to 1TB of portable SSD storage. Built to travel, the My Passport Go is designed for anyone looking for SSD performance on the go.

SanDisk Flashback

Available for two of SanDisk’s popular USB drives, Flashback is a new cloud backup service that creates an online copy of USB drive content, so consumers can easily view, search and share their files even if their drive is lost or left at home.

SanDisk 4TB1 USB-C Prototype

Last but not least, WD is showcasing what it is calling the world’s highest-capacity portable flash drive. It’s a whopping 4TB of flash memory in a compact form factor. Although currently in prototype form, the flash drive is also on show at CES.

“We continue to evolve our products to help consumers find new ways of enjoying the content that matters the most,” said David Ellis, vice president of product marketing, Western Digital.

“Our latest offerings reinforce Western Digital’s commitment to delivering a wide range of personal storage solutions that offer ruggedness, speed, reliability and ease of use.”
