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
