Drive is relatively quiet
Compact and light enough to easily fit in a backpack or briefcase, Western Digitalâ?? s My Book Studio external hard drive is a cute little bugger. Designed to resemble a book, the 6.5-inch tall drive stands upright, and you have the option of digitally labeling your drive (with 12 characters or less) so itâ?? ll read like a title on the binding a book.
Designed specifically for a Mac, this plug-in-and-go drive is compatible with Appleâ??
Fully featured Mac software
Western Digital's My Book Studio Edition is quite possibly the sexiest external hard drive we've seen, if we're allowed to call external hard drives that. The powdered silver casing is one of luxury, a single stretched ovoid line lit by white LEDs calmly and serenely tracks back and forth when it's in use.
Best upgrade I have ever made to a computer
This noticeably sped up my HP laptop computer, especially start-up (boot-up) time (about 25 seconds now) and wake up time (2 to 4 seconds). I replaced a 500 gig hard drive with this 256 gig SSD. Don't do this unless you are comfortable re-installing your computer system, although you won't need to reinstall it: there is a better way. The process is greatly simplified if you have an external USB-SATA connector and are comfortable cloning a disk drive.
Slow Start, Excellent Finish
This would make my 4th Buffalo brand purchase. So far it works fine as the others.
Very strong, durable build.
Expensive as ^&*^&^$ but needed.
Only con and very bad thing about it is that it'll only give me 10TB instead of the whole 12TB if I don't seperate it.
Other than that it's a good back up.
Smooth interface with Internet Drive and Shutterfly

Tops in the SSD category, Intel's latest solid-state drive has excellent performance and a price that's no longer stratospheric. Tops in the SSD category, Intel's latest solid-state drive has excellent performance and a price that's no longer stratospheric. Neck-in-neck for top performance honors, this high-capacity SSD also carries a high cost-per-gigabyte. If its specs and high price feel familiar, that's because this model packs Samsung's high-performing drive inside.
The new X25-M is the first of several flash SSDs that will hit the market between now and early 2009. We received a 2.5â?? 80 GB drive sample based on MLC flash memory. Thanks to a 10-channel design and the smart new flash controller that Intel designed in-house, a product that is based on a technically inferior MLC flash memory technology is capable of outperforming the excellent SLC-based Samsung 64 GB SATA-2 SSD.
Feature set and performance numbers are perfect for the intended market
This is the eleventh solid-state drive that this editor has benchmarked and it will be the first that gets the Legit Reviews Editor's Choice Award. This drive is aimed at the mainstream market and the feature set and performance numbers are perfect for the intended market. This is hands down the best SSD that we have seen to date.
Blazing fast application open times
By introducing a lower cost 34nm production process and revising its controller, Intel has moved the ball forward in terms of manufacturing, but it hasn't shaken up the market in terms of performance like it did last year. While modest write speeds drop its overall performance behind competitors such as the OCZ Vertex and Patriot Torqx, the X25-M G2 is a good choice because of its strong read speeds, higher capacity, and slightly better price per gigabyte.
low power consumption
With low power consumption, no noise/heat and a read speed of almost 200 MBps, this Solid State Drive simply can’t go wrong. This relatively affordable drive is a must-buy for enthusiasts looking to speed up their computer. Prices might fall later but for now, all you’ll get after paying for this drive is 80 GB of storage capacity.
Lower Cost Per GB
ooking at the direct competitors like the OCZ Vertex and Corsair SSDs we tested today, the new Intel X25-M stacks up very well in terms of performance and price, making it one of the lower cost SSDs on the market currently at at cost per gigabyte of $2.81 for the 80GB drive and $2.75 for the 160GB drive. We'll be taking a look at new offerings from OCZ in the weeks ahead and yet another from the red-hot Fusion-io, so stay tuned.
