Western Digital (WD) is known for making great digital hard disk drives and there are two products that travelers will love (Full disclosure: They sent me a catalog and I chose the two below since they’re ideal for getting out and documenting the world.)

If you take a ton of photos or videos like me, chances are your laptop can’t hold them all – especially from that trip from a year or more ago like me. If that’s the case, then you will seriously want to consider getting the My Passport SSD. Depending how much storage you need, you can get it in 500GB, 1TB, 2TB or 4TB ($119.99 – $679.99). Most important, it’s easy to use, password enabled and is.blazing fast (giving you read speeds of up to 1050MB/s and write speeds of up to 1000MB/s with NVMe technology). It’s also sleek, with a durable metal design that comes in silver, gray, blue, red, and gold.

Buy at Western Digital or Amazon.

The other great product is the SanDisk Extreme PRO SD UHS-II Card. If you’re shooting pics and vids with something other than your phone, then you definitely need a reliable, high-performance and large SD card that can hold it all. It’s really amazing what these tiny masterpieces can store. Up to 128GB, which is half the capacity of what my 13-inch laptop can store. Prices range from $54.99 – $164.99, which is well worth something that can “seamlessly capture uninterrupted cinema-quality 8K, 4K and Full HD video. These speed ratings make them ideal for professionals recording extreme sports and other fast-action events.”

Buy at Western Digital or on Amazon.
