The new eco-friendly dual-drive My Book Studio Edition II external
storage systems use WD's GreenPower hard drives for power savings and cool and quiet operation. The system's dual-drive, RAID 0 configuration and high- speed interfaces deliver high performance for creative professionals, workgroups, small offices and anyone looking for fast data transfer.

Formatted for Mac computers, these new storage systems feature: extra- fast performance with four interfaces (FireWire(R) 400/800, eSATA, USB 2.0); factory-shipped in RAID 0 (Striped) configuration [RAID 1 (Mirrored) configurable]; cool, eco-friendly operation with WD GreenPower drives that consume approximately one-third less power than standard dual-drive external storage systems and efficient convection cooling architecture and power-saving mode; designed without a fan to run quietly; 5-year limited warranty; automatic and continuous backup software; capacity gauge to see at a glance how much space is available on the system; intelligent drive management features, including automatic power-up, Safe Shutdown and LED status and activity lights; user serviceability, enabling owner to open the enclosure and replace the drive inside; and elegant silver metallic finish that perfectly complements other Mac products.

Extra-fast Performance with RAID 0
Lightning-fast eSATA or FireWire 800 interfaces combined with RAID 0 (Striped) yields the speed users need for: fast, smooth video editing; rendering complex 3D objects or special effects; and saving huge blocks of data in record time. With RAID 0, users can have 2 TB of storage in an elegant, small footprint design that offers plenty of room to store an entire digital photo library and hundreds of hours of HD movies or digital video (results will vary based on file size and format, settings, features, software and other factors).
The My Book Studio Edition II 1TB has a $349.99 price tag and the 2TB version costs $599.99.
