Fast, Green and Mac® Ready
Formatted for Mac, the My Book Studio Edition II treads lightly on the earth and carries big performance for creative professionals.
The speed you need - Lightning-fast FireWire® 800 combined with RAID 0 (Striped) yields the speed you need for smooth video editing, rendering complex 3D objects or special effects and saving huge blocks of data in record time.
Cooler, quieter, eco-friendlier - Designed to use only WD hard drives with GreenPower Technology™, this system uses about 30% less energy* than standard systems and runs quietly because it doesn't need a fan.
(* Based on comparison between a 1 TB dual-drive system using 7200 RPM drives and a 1 TB dual-drive system using WD hard drives with GreenPower Technology™.)
Formatted for Mac® - Compatible with Apple's Time Machine™. Includes software and instructions for reformatting to Windows®. The 4 TB version works with Windows® Vista and Windows® 7 only. Windows XP does not support hard drives above with capacities above 2 TB.
Quad interface - Power your creativity with connections for ultra-fast eSATA and FireWire 800. For flexibility and convenience and USB 2.0 are also included.
User serviceable - Want to upgrade a drive? Simply open the case and replace the existing drive - no screwdriver needed.
Automatic backup software - Back up important projects to multiple destinations including file servers, portable drives and My Book. Set it and forget it; every time you save a change it's automatically backed up.
Capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your storage system. Intelligent drive management features - Automatic power-up, Safe Shutdown™, and LED status and activity lights make this storage system especially easy to use. (Works with USB and FireWire connections only.)
