Store thousands of files on this Western Digital My Passport 1TB hard drive. Solid-state technology makes it resistant to excessive heat and cold, and the slim device even resists losing data due to impacts. Rapid file transfer speeds are assured thanks to the USB Type-C port on this Western Digital My Passport 1TB hard drive, which produces speeds up to 540 MB/sec.

Ironic they made it gen 2 (10 gbit) interface, when the top speed is advertised as 540MB which is less than half the speed

I believe there is a difference between 1TB and 1024GB, at least from a marketing perspective (can confirm from some previous hard drive purchases). Typically 1TB translates to 1000GB, which is less than 1024GB.
It's the same. The computer industry has converted to using decimal notation for simplicity (really for consumers). In decimal notation 1TB = 1000GB. In binary, 1TB = 1024GB.

1 Gigabyte is equal to 0.001 terabytes (decimal).
1 GB = 10^-3 TB in base 10 (SI).
0.001 multiplied by 1,000GB = 1..... aka 1TB.
1 Gigabyte is equal to 0.0009765625 terabytes (binary).
1 GB = 2^-10 TB in base 2.
0.0009765625 multiplied by 1,024GB = 1.... aka 1TB.

1024GB is accurate for 1TB. Pockets is absolutely right.

Have the 512gb version of this same gen 2 drive and the thing gets 🔥. I use it for Xbox games and about 30 minutes it's so hot that you can't hold it comfortably. On the plus side, it's been solid for over a year now. Wife has a similar Samsung drive and it's cool to the touch under the same conditions. Just FYI 😀

Storage manufacturers use Giga/Tera, which are the powers of 10 (10^9/10^12 bytes). Windows and such use Gibi/Tebi which are the powers of 2 (2^30/2^40 bytes).

This drive is 1024 * 10^9 bytes = 1,024,000,000,000 bytes / 2^30 = 953.67431640625 GiB

No, a Tebibyte would be equivalent to 1,099.511627776 GBs. GB as in Gigabyte. 1024 in the context of this deal is not being listed as a Gibibyte, where 1 Tebibyte = 1024 Gibibytes

Tebi is the IEC binary prefix equal to 2^40
1 Tebibyte = 2^40 bytes
1 Tebibyte = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes

Giga is the SI decimal prefix equal to 10^9
1 Gigabyte = 10^9 bytes
1 Gigabyte = 1,000,000,000 bytes
1 byte = 1 Gigabyte / 1,000,000,0001
Tebibyte = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes
1 Tebibyte = 1,099,511,627,776 × (Gigabytes / 1,000,000,000)
1 Tebibyte = 1099.511627776 Gigabytes

You know, nerd stuff. Autumn
