not bad for the price I bought it for...

eclectic purchaser, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: It was on sale like no one's business. I got this for less than $400 and couldn't say no. Haven't had any problems with it. Running it on firewire 800 and the write speed is pretty decent. If the price is right, worth the buy.

Good but not perfect

Raymond W Godman, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: Because the disc was presetup for Apple, it was a little complicated to format for Windows. The directions could have been a lot clearer. Although it has a esata port, I could not find a way to use the esata port and access the full capacity of the disc. Don't know if this is a Windows limitation or disc limitation. Using the latested version of Windows 7 Pro. The WB tech rep did not seem to know much about the problem.

Running MyBook Studio II 6TB on Windows 7 64

M. Shults, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: If Amazon allowed it, I would give three and a half stars, since four is too much, and three is a little shy, but here's the gist... Because I have had a MyBookII 4TB "World Edition" (means Network Attached or NAS) connected to our network at the office for two or three years now, and it's done yeoman's work for a song, I decided to buy this MyBook StudioII 6TB Firewire connection drive specifically for my laptop and personal backup purposes.

Goes to sleep automatically!!!

Kenneth E. Jones, Amazon
17 September 2011
  • Summary: This drive is a good value, but it doesn't really work for me. The drive goes to sleep after about ten minutes of not being accessed, and then it takes about ten seconds to spin back up. I searched the internet and learned that there is no way to defeat this "feature". I wouldn't recommend this drive for active use - such as video editing. It might work out okay for file archiving or backup, but the constant sleep will drive you nuts.

No Snow Leopard Support / Mac SATA Issues

Wingo, Amazon
6 March 2010
  • Summary: While this drive works correctly with USB 2 and Firewire, there are issues with Snow Leopard... Software which manages the drive's display (e.g. shows how much free space is left on the drive), as well as permits changing the drive's RAID mode has never been updated for Snow Leopard. The version which is still distributed by Western Digital on their web site throws errors at a rate of 10 per second with Snow Leopard.
