Western Digital My Book Studio Edition (2TB)

PC Magazine
15 January 2011
  • Conclusion: For the Mac user who requires copious storage but not the mirroring capability of the Studio II, the Western Digital My Book Studio (2TB) makes a good Time Machine or working storage drive.

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

From the Lab Western Digital My Book Studio 2TB

Macworld
6 August 2010
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Compact and light enough to easily fit in a backpack or briefcase, Western Digital’s My Book Studio external hard drive is a cute little bugger. Designed to resemble a book, the 6.5-inch tall drive stands upright, and you have the option of digitally labeling your drive (with 12 characters or less) so it’ll read like a title on the binding a book.
  • Pros: Good speed, Helpful label display
  • Cons: Fickle power button

Western Digital My Book Studio Edition II

CNET
19 April 2011
  • Summary: The My Book Studio Edition II makes a decent direct-attached storage solution for those who need to extend a computer's storage space or want a large backup drive. The drive's rather buggy firmware might turn many users away, however.
  • Pros: The My Book Studio Edition II offers up to 6TB of storage, features RAID 0 and RAID 1, and supports USB 2.0, FireWire (400/800), and eSATA connections. The drive is fast and affordable.
  • Cons: The My Book Studio Edition II doesn't support USB 3.0 and internal hard drives made by other vendors. It runs hot, seems buggy at times, and doesn't come with an eSATA cable.

  • 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.
