WD and SanDisk New Wireless and Portable SSD - Faster Workflow for Photographer and Videographer

If you are a photographer who shoot RAW photos and videographer who shoot slow-mo and 4K footages, and drone user like me who shoot 4K, HDD storage is one important thing that you shouldn't neglect. So if you are like me, shoot tons of photos and videos every day and night, these new gadgets might fit in and ease your daily life.

Western Digital Corporation (WD) recently launched two new portable SSDs in Malaysia, the My Passport Wireless SSD and SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD. [What's SSD? SSD is Solid State Drive that offer you faster storage/reading speed and much more durable than the normal HDD. You may want to read more about SSD vs HDD

I used the earlier version of My Passport HDD and glad that they now come up with the SSD version for My Passport. I am actually more excited for the launch of SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD as not only the storage is smaller in size, it is much more durable than HDD and easy to bring along as your travel gadget. No one want to bring along a heavy Hard-Disk- Drives (HDD) when climb Mt. Everest right?

Shock proof up to 1 metre; The only bad news is that SSD do come with a higher price (SSD price is much more affordable if compared to last time), the only things matter now is how you value your time.
