WD MyBook 2TB

Western Digital today upgraded its MyBook external drives to 2TB, representing some of the largest external drives yet from the storage maker or any company. The Premium Edition II, Pro Edition II, and World Edition II now all include two of Western Digital's 1TB drives either in a continuous stripe, a mirrored 1TB arrangement, or as two separate disks. Features are similar to earlier models with the Premium and Pro models each sporting FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB 2.0 interfaces for attaching to a Mac or Windows PC; the World model relies on gigabit Ethernet to share its data with a local network or remote users on the Internet.

The Premium Edition II comes equipped with straightforward WD Backup software for copying typical files to the drive, while both the Pro Edition II and World Edition II versions come with EMC's more advanced Retrospect Express for scheduled backups of some or all of a system's files. Prices range from $749 to $799 for each of the drives, all of which are available online today.

    Making them bigger doesn't make them better. They still don't work properly.
