Western Digital FireWire/USB 2.0 Combo Special Edition features an 8MB cache and spins at 7200RPM.
The case is made from transparent material, so you can see the components within. It’s illuminated by LEDs, as well. The drive features two 6-pin FireWire connectors and a single “B” type USB 2.0 connector. System requirements call for Mac OS 9.2.2 or later, or Mac OS X.
The drive includes a six foot 6-pin to 6-pin FireWire cable, six foot USB 2.0 cable, AC adapter and power cord, and Quick Install guide. It comes with a one-year warranty and is available for pre-order at Western Digital’s
