Western Digital offers the power of choice

Western Digital, a storage industry pioneer and world leader of external storage and connected home solutions had a press conference last July 27 at Marco Polo Borneo Room from 1pm to 4pm, I was invited together with other davao bloggers and press people.
It's been almost 4 years already since I have used Western Digital Passport external hard drive for my back up files and up to now, its still up and working.

But did you know that if you will check the amount of unique information created last year and replicated it was estimated to reached at more than 1.8 Zettabytes. (1 ZB=1 billion terabytes.)

As a result, the need to store our important content, our photos, and our life is great that ever.
