Western Digital My Book Elite 2TB
2 March 2010
Summary: Strangely, the average write speed was lower than either a bare WD Caviar Green drive in an external cradle or the 500GB SimpleTech ReDrive, at about 20MB/s compared to the others’ nearly 30MB/s writes. The My Book Elite is reasonably priced, powerful, and intuitive, and although power-users will lament its lack of eSATA and opt for their own backup software, the drive offers users easy backup and restore, full-disk encryption, and an unnecessary but awesome e-ink label.
Pros: Good looks; cool display; intuitive backup software; full-disk encryption.
Cons: Write speeds slower than expected; no eSATA.
