Aimed at the consumer market, the Elements SE is a fast yet affordable portable drive, with read speeds up to 400MBps.
Features include drop resistance to 2m, a USB interface, exFAT formatting for compatibility with Windows and macOS, and a three-year limited warranty.
At 65mm square, 9mm deep and a weight of just 27g, it lives up to the "pocket size" claim.
Prices at Officeworks, which claims an exclusive on this range, start at $129 for the 480GB version, rising through $199 for 1TB to $399 for 2TB.
"For a long time, solid-state drives have been something that not all consumers could comfortably afford," said Western Digital ANZ senior sales manager Simon Whitford.
"At Western Digital, we aim to make SSD technology more accessible for consumers. People should not have to make the difficult decision between affordability, performance and the dependability of a brand that they can trust, which is why we are thrilled to be able to bring the WD Elements SE SSD to the local market."
