Western Digital My Books Go to 2TB

Illustration for article titled Western Digital My Books Go to 2TB

A scant five months since the My Book external hard drives hit 1TB, Western Digital upped their game and doubled the storage to 2TB. The My Book World Edition 2 has remote access, UPnP support, Gigabit Ethernet support and RAID 1 capabilities. There's actually no mention at all of USB 2.0 support, so this is an Ethernet-only NAS affair. Keep this in mind as you slam down $799 for one of these. [Western Digital via Crunchgear]

DISCUSSION

I just purchased two (2) of the Western Digital Passport drives for my OQO. Both of them died within 24 hours. Western Digital took more than 2 weeks to reply to my troubleshooting email.

Sorry Western Digital. I used to be a big supporter of yours. Due to your shoddy manufacturing as well as your lackluster support, I'm not buying any more Western Digital drives.

Clean up your act.
