Summary: This is an excellent product from Western Digital. I like the style. I have three daisy chained through firewire. All together their about as loud a a cheap USB fax, which is to say, not very.
Summary: This is okay for back up but it's the most frustrating drive I've ever used. Impossible to use for editing. It goes to sleep after a short amount of time - a function which you can't turn off - and as a result whenever the drive is accessed for anything, even when polled by the system, everything...
Summary: Terrible product. Everything on it feels very cheap and fragile. I used the product once to backup my laptop. A week later when I tried another backp of my laptop, it was dead. I was unable to read or write to the device. Customer support was horrible.
Very poor service from Western Digital, unless you contact the service manager

Summary: I purchased the My Book Studio 6TB drive about 18 months ago. Last month it failed. I'm not faulting WD for that - anybody can make a product that occasionally fails. The true test of the quality of a vendor is what they do to help the customer when that happens. WD has failed that test miserably.
Summary: I bought this as I rapidly filled up my 2 TB WD hard drive when decided to burn all of my DVD's so I can watch them on my Apple TV. The hard drive is a simple plug and play device. Additionally, the previoulsy mentioned 2 TB hard drive daisy chains into the back of this one.
Summary: I bought this HD as I have 21.5 inch iMac with USB2/FireWire interface. This HD does its job perfectly, not loud, nice looking. I would recommend to buy it if you need something big (6 TB) and you have only USB2/FireWire Interfaces. S.K.
Summary: This product is great for the price and storing my information , music that i use for my iMac. Was told by a friend how great he liked it and would definitely buy another when the need arises. Functions great, quiet running, and can be tucked out of the way.
