Western Digital My Book 3.0 1TB
2 February 2010
Excerpt: We wouldn’t normally test two products from the same lineup in two consecutive issues of the magazine. But when Western Digital’s My Book 3.0 showed up just days after the March issue went to print (it's on newsstands now!), we knew we had to review it.
Pros: USB 3.0 speed removes 33MB/s transfer limit; includes PCI-E adapter card.
Cons: Don’t lose that USB SuperSpeed cable! No encryption or backup software.
Excerpt: The Western Digital My Book 3.0 desktop external drive is among the first to market with the new super-fast USB 3.0 interface. It’s available in a 1TB version, with a 2TB model due soon. So does USB 3.0 deliver? We tested the 1TB My Book 3.0, and our results are promising.
Pros: Much faster performance than USB 2.0.
Cons: Only equal to eSATA; pricey; no Mac support.
