Works great if you can turn it on,
This review is from: Western Digital My Book Studio 500 GB USB 2.0/FireWire 400/800/eSATA Desktop External Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
Small, looks great, quiet, it's everything you want in an external drive. Just don't turn it off. Each time it turned off, whether manually or by power failure, I could not get the drive to turn back on. The button does not work. One review said WD told him to hit the box as the power switch hangs up. If I hit is a few times, it lights up as if there was no problem. This is not the way a $200+ device should operate. I have no confidence in this drive as a backup.
January 28 Update... It has been one week and five business days since I asked WD about the problem with the My Book Studio Edition. Despite two follow up notes to them and a claim of one day response to most questions, there has been no response. If I could edit the stars the rating would now drop to one star.
