Western Digital My Passport Studio 320GB Portable Hard Drive Review
30 November 2008
Excerpt: Less isn’t more when it comes to computers. More, in fact, is actually more. More RAM, more speed, more display real estate and more hard drive space. You can never really have too much of any of these things. Unfortunately with laptops, we’re a bit limited and at press time, the largest HD you can get on a notebook is …
Excerpt: Mac users rejoice: Western Digital has finally upgraded its My Passport external hard drive range with a FireWire 800 interface. This means the Western Digital My Passport Studio 500GB enjoys faster transfers, though the considerably thicker enclosure is a slight trade-off for hipsters.
Excerpt: Western Digital's 320GB My Passport Studio is one of only two portable hard disk here with both FireWire 400 and USB ports. The Studio performed well over both interfaces, although FireWire's extra speed can be useful if you're impatient and regularly copy lots of data.

Western Digital My Passport Studio hard drive review
11 June 2008
Excerpt: The Western Digital My Passport Studio hard drive packs up to 320GB of storage into a device no bigger than a Moleskine notebook, but has Western Digital had to cut too many corners to get it to this size? We start saving files to find out. Small, compact and silver the My Passport Studio is a simple affair. Geared specifically for the Mac market, the unit comes HFS+ Journal formatted for Mac OS 10.4.11 users and above although it can be reformatted for PC use.
Pros: Small, compact, big storage
Cons: Status lights are pretty pointless, plastic case means not that durable
Excerpt: Mobile Festplatten im typischen 2,5-Zoll-Format erfreuen sich nach wie vor einer hohen Nachfrage und Beliebtheit. Die Gründe hierfür sind naheliegend: Günstige Speicherpreise verbunden mit einer akzeptablen Transportgröße. Das Angebot ist zwar sehr vielfältig, dennoch richten sich die Mehrzahl der Festplatten vor allem an PC-User – ein Indiz hierfür: Die Beschränkung auf USB 2.0 und keinerlei Beigaben für den Mac. Nicht so bei der Western Digital My Passport Studio.
Conclusion: WD My Passport Studio 500 GB Teknofiyat aramalarında 217 TL başlangıç fiyatıyla bulunabiliyor. Bu fiyatı değerlendirirken normal USB disklerle aynı kefeye koymamakta fayda var. Sunduğu Firewire 800 bağlantısı ile (test edemesek bile) oldukça yüksek hızlar vaadediyor. Yanında sunduğu yazılım ve diğer özellikleri dikkat çekiyor.
