About Western Digital

The WD My Book Studio External Hard Drive has 2TB 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.

Western Digital Features

  • Heat-Dissipating, Cool-to-the-Touch Aluminum Enclosure: The premium aluminum enclosure perfectly complements your Mac computer and the sleek, book-like design allows two or more My Book drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf
  • 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
  • Password Protection: Gain peace-of-mind knowing that your data is protected from unauthorized access or theft with password protection and hardware-based encryption (requires WD SmartWare software)
  • Power Miser: My Book external drives are designed to save energy. WD GreenPower Technology lowers internal drive power consumption by up to 30%; a sleep mode reduces power during idle times; and a power-saving feature turns the drive on and off with your computer
  • Cool and Quiet: The drive is designed to run cool without a fan. Lower operating temperatures extend the life of the drive and improve data reliability, while the fan-less design reduces noise output

Good Drive, Good Price

I use this Hard Drive for video editing. Works great for that. I've had good luck with Western Digital drives so far.

This hard drive only lasted one year. Trashed 2 GB worth of photographs. Luckily I had it all backed up, but still a hard drive should not physically fail that soon. I will never buy another WD product again.
