Housed in a shiny black case and sporting a single blue power LED indicator, the Western Digital Passport is one of the most stylish portable drives we've seen, and at $129, it's a good bargain. The 120GB USB drive weighs in at a mere 3.7 ounces and measures just 5.1 x 3.1 x 0.6 inches. A USB cable is included in the box, and users with older machines can purchase a USB power-boosting cable. The Passport is covered by a one-year warranty.
The drive comes with WD Sync preinstalled. This handy utility lets you synchronize and migrate your personal data. Western Digital also includes an electronic user's guide and a few Google freebies, such as the IE Toolbar and Picasa, a photo-sharing application. Fourth-place read and write times tempered our enthusiasm for this drive, however.
