Get this snazzy 1TB WD My Passport SSD for just 100 this Cyber Monday with up to 23% off

Also save 50 on the 2TB and 100 on the 4TB models.

A good portable SSD is something we can all use, making it a great purchase for yourself or as a gift. The WD My Passport has been one of our top recommendations due to its combination of price and performance, and now it's cheaper than ever to get this excellent portable drive thanks to some amazing Cyber Monday discounts.

If you're looking for the more affordable option, the 1TB version of the My Passport drive is a great option, currently selling for £100 (down from £130) on Amazon as well as on the WD website. For those seeking more space for their files, the 2TB option is selling for £180 (down from £230) on Amazon and on the WD website. For those who want the maximum storage option, the 4TB variant is a cool £100 off for £360 on the WD website.

The WD My Passport features a high-speed NVMe SSD and USB 3.2 Gen-2 connectivity. It is capable of read speeds up to 1050MB/s and write speeds up to 1000MB/s, making it one of the fastest USB drives available on the market.


Aside from being fast, the My Passport is also well built. It features a metal body with rugged construction that is shock and vibration resistant. The drive is also rated for drop resistance for up to 1.98m. This should provide additional peace of mind when carrying the drive around in your bag or using it outdoors.

With a drive this fast, it's easier and faster than ever to transfer files between computers. It's also a great option for those with consoles; simply plug the drive on your current generation or previous generation PlayStation or Xbox and use the drive transfer and backup games. You can also run previous generation games directly off the drive and in some cases even see a performance benefit over using the internal hard drive of the previous generation models.

Overall, the WD My Passport is a great little portable SSD and absolutely worth picking up. If you want to see other great portable SSD options, check out the SanDisk Extreme or the Samsung T7.

Will you support the Digital Foundry team?

Digital Foundry specialises in technical analysis of gaming hardware and software, using state-of-the-art capture systems and bespoke software to show you how well games and hardware run, visualising precisely what they're capable of. In order to show you what 4K gaming actually looks like we needed to build our own platform to supply high quality 4K video for offline viewing. So we did.

Our videos are multi-gigabyte files and we've chosen a high quality provider to ensure fast downloads. However, that bandwidth isn't free and so we charge a small monthly subscription fee of $5. We think it's a small price to pay for unlimited access to top-tier quality encodes of our content. Thank you.
