Re: My Passport Essential vs Elite

What i can say is both drives are almost similar.My Passport portable USB drives which are designed to carry half a terabyte of music, videos or photos in the palm of your hand. A luxurious soft-touch finish makes these drives easy to grip, comfortable to hold, and beautiful to show off to your friends.The capacity gauge located next to the USB port has four LEDs to show much space is left on the drive. Anyways, i am defining both the drives with their features here:-

    • This beautiful portable drive, available in many eye-catching colors, is light and easy to carry and fits smoothly in your hand or pocket.

Re: My Passport Essential vs Elite

My Passport both drive are simple to use, light and easy to carry, and require no power adapter, they are powered directly through the USB cable. Works with Windows and Mac. Synchronize files between home and office and encrypt everything on the drive for added security.A luxurious soft-touch finish makes these drives easy to grip, comfortable to hold, and beautiful to show off to your friends. Combine that with mega-capacity that fits in your pocket, plus four powerful features, capacity gauge, automatic backup, sync and encryption, and remote access software, and you'll understand why we call these little drives Elite.
