Western Digital 2TB My Book Mirror Edition

CDRLabs
1 October 2008
  • Excerpt: As one of the biggest names in the storage industry, Western Digital doesn't need much of an introduction. Founded in 1970, the company got its start by manufacturing calculator chips. As time went on, Western Digital expanded into the PC market, adding floppy and hard disc controllers to its product lineup. It wasn't until 1988 that it introduced its "Centaur" series of hard drives.

  • Excerpt: As our world moves further into the Digital Age and more people, many of whom have little experience with computers, allow technology like digital photos and digital music into their lives, the need for low cost, high volume storage has grown. For many users, opening up their Dell or Gateway beige box is a not an enjoyable experience and some users wouldn't even consider it an option.

Western Digital My Book Mirror Edition (1TB) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 August 2008
  • Summary: The Western Digital My Book Mirror Edition is a compelling external storage drive solid for content hoarders. The drive will find a home with users who are more concerned with safeguarding data than lightning-fast transfer speeds, as the RAID configuration provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing you're capable of retrieving data even if your notebook and one of the 500GB HDDs malfunction.

Western Digital My Book Mirror Edition (2TB)

ZDNet
10 September 2008
  • Summary: Western Digital's My Book Mirror Edition is good value, and if the lack of transfer speed doesn't deter, then short of an NAS it's one of the better ways consumers can keep their data safe.
  • Pros: Quiet, Safer backup plan than single drive solutions, User serviceable
  • Cons: Hobbled by the USB 2.0 only interface

  • Conclusion: Данные программы HD Tune практически совпадают с уже полученными, т.к. здесь средняя скорость составляет 25.3 MB/s. Время доступа не превышает 13.6 мс, что можно считать приемлемым результатом. Говоря о времени доступа в режиме random, можно констатировать факт, что оно увеличивается до 43 мс. Опять же не в лучшую сторону играет работа конвертера SATA-USB. Файловый бенчмарк показывает вполне стандартный результат.

  • Conclusion: Western Digital My Book Mirror Edition'ın bulunabilirliği henüz çok fazla değil. Bu bize gelen örnekte Türkiye'de kullanılmayan bir güç girişi olmasını açıklayabilir. Güncel fiyat bilgisi için Teknofiyat 'a bir sorun.

Western Digital My Book Essential Edition и Mirror Edition

  • Summary: Фанатам скорости оба накопителя противопоказаны — элементная база устаревшая. Это приводит к отсутствию поддержки высокоскоростного интерфейса, да и тот, что есть, задействуется не на 100%. Однако до сих пор есть масса сфер применения, в которых все равно приходится использовать исключительно USB, причем производительность не имеет определяющего значения. Именно это и приводит к тому, что подобные ВЖД до сих пор активно продаются всеми компаниями.

Doppelt hält besser: Western Digital My Book Mirror Edition im Test

zdnet.de
16 September 2008
  • Summary: Die My Book Mirror Edition von Western Digital ist eine interessante externe Speicherlösung, die dank RAID 1 auch nach dem Ausfall einer Festplatte Daten noch sicher aufbewahrt. Lärm- und Wärmeentwicklung bewegen sich auf erfreulich niedrigem Niveau.
  • Pros: unterstützt RAID 0 und 1, Festplatten können vom Anwender ersetzt werden, niedrige Betriebstemperatur, geringe Wärmeentwicklung, nützliche Backup-Software
  • Cons: kein Firewire, kein eSATA, kratzempfindliches Gehäuse, unterstützt nur Festplatten von Western Digital, Festplatten können nicht als separate Laufwerke konfiguriert werden
