Western Digital My Book Home Edition
16 November 2007
Summary: The My Book Home performs a little better than expected on our eSATA tests. USB and FireWire average read speeds lagged behind those of numerous other drives we’ve tested, including sluggers like Seagate’s FreeAgent Pro and tykes like Toshiba’s Portable External Hard Drive. It’s a tough trade-off to accept, given the slow rate of eSATA adoption.
Pros: Quiet as a dead mouse, redesigned status indicator far more elegant than the previous big blue circle.
Cons: USB and FireWire speeds are quite slower than expected. Junky included software.
