My Passport with e-ink display

Is WD no longer going to utilize the e-ink display?  I’m noticing on the newer, larger drives, the display is not an option.

What a huge bummer if true!

WD – PLEASE USE THE E-INK display.  This is a huge feature to easily label the drive and know its locked/unlock status.

Are there other drives that do this?

Your post sounds more like an Idea or a Feature Request. The best place for this is in our Ideas Lab. This way someone from WD will be sure to see it. However, I would search first and make sure that there isn’t another idea similar to yours that you could add your post to and vote on.
