About this item

The WD My Book Studio External Hard Drive has 1TB of storage that works out of the box with your Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard machine. Data transfer speeds up to 800MB/s ensure fast transfer of your information, especially when connected via the FireWire-800 port. My Book also provides a USB 2.0 port and a FireWire-400 port (when using the included cable).

Aside from having an appealing aluminum enclosure, the drive runs cool and quiet without a fan. Optional WD SmartWare software comes included with the drive as well, allowing you to install only the components you choose to add. The drive also does its part to conserve energy with its WD GreenPower Technology, which lowers the internal drive's power consumption by up to 30%. And for peace-of-mind, My Book features password protection and hardware-based encryption.

  • Premium Performance: Save and access data at top speeds with the dual high-performance FireWire-800 interface. Also includes a USB 2.0 interface for maximum flexibility
  • Formatted HFS+ Journaled: Works out of the box with your Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard system. Can easily be reformatted to work with Windows XP, Vista, or 7
