The WD My Passport Edge is a portable hard for Model T fans: it's got everything you need, including a 500GB capacity, USB 3.0, encryption, and automatic backup software. You won't find higher capacities, color choices (it just comes in basic black), or alternate interfaces. But if you just need an simple, affordable way to back up files on the go, the Edge is an easy choice.

The Western Digital My Passport Edge is a convenient way to carry 500GB of storage in a sleek, compact pocket hard drive. It's also convenient to buy, since there's only one choice of capacity and color.

The Edge (not to be confused with the guitar player) adds good looks and better transportability to the My Passport line. It's fast, but tops out at 500GB instead of the 2TB available with the non-Edge My Passport.

We wish My Passport Edge came in larger capacities. For build-quality and functionality, it's our favorite.

What the My Passport Edge has going for it is that it’s delightfully compact, offers a more-than-adequate 500GB capacity, and includes useful software, which is sufficient for us to confidently recommend this little backup storage unit.
