Western Digital (WD) on Tuesday unveiled the My Book Studio Edition, a new version of its external hard disk drive line aimed at creative users. It’s formatted for the Mac and available in capacities from 320GB to 1 terabyte (TB), at prices from $199.99 to $399.99.
The My Book Studio Edition shares the same chassis design as other WD My Book devices — it looks like a hardcover book standing upright, with an LED in the center of spine that gives you an instant visual indicator of the device’s operation.
The My Book Studio Edition features four interfaces — external Serial ATA (eSATA), FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and USB 2.0). The drive comes with backup software that works automatically and continuously in the background, and lets you back up projects to multiple destinations, including file servers, portable drives the My Book itself. It’s designed to work without user intervention, so once you’ve set it up, you can forget about it: Every time a change a saved, it’s automatically backed up to the My Book.
Western Digital’s Web site hadn’t been updated with information about the My Book Studio Edition as Macworld posted this article.
