PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Western Digital My Book Studio gives you a capacious 4TB drive to match your aluminum iMac or Mac mini. It's a strong mid-tier drive to keep your files safe, and sometimes that's all you need.
  • Pros: Large capacity. Fanless. Speedy. Three-year warranty.
  • Cons: No visual capacity indicator. No Thunderbolt. Pricey.

Western Digital My Book Studio Edition (2TB)

PC Magazine

  • Cons: Windows compatibility requires reformat. No Windows utilities. No eSATA cable included.

  • Excerpt: File sizes are always increasing, requiring even more disk space. Filling up your computer hard drive can cause problems; Photoshop may slow down and it can even decrease the performance of your processor. An external hard drive offers extra storage capacity for your photos leaving your computer's in-built hard drive free, with the added advantage of increased portability between computers.

  • Summary: This drive is primarily aimed at Mac users, but it can be adapted to work on PCs. It's a capacious and fairly inconspicuous drive, but we do wish it was supplied with a full version of its backup software, instead of a trial, and that WD would include an eSATA cable.
  • Pros: Has eSATA, USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 interface connections; if using USB or FireWire, the drive switches off automatically when the computer is shut down
  • Cons: An eSATA cable is not supplied, the backup software is only a trial version, the drive's enclosure is made out of plastic
