Western Digital My Book Studio (4TB)
31 December 2012
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.
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
