Western Digital’s My Book Released

Western Digital continues its stride in carving out its niche in the mobile storage solutions sector with the new My Book. Armed with eco-friendly considerations, it looks like Western Digital has once again jumped the gun on other hard disk manufacturers ever since their first Terabyte hard drive was launched some weeks back. The new updated version of its My Book World Edition NAS device is compatible with both MACs and PCs and will be available in 1TB and 2TB versions.

With the flexibility options made obvious, it should not be surprising that Western Digital has set the bar high in providing efficient hard drives for the techies of today. So don’t be surprised to see the other manufacturers like Seagate come up with their own solution, a familiar scenario that they did when the terabyte was born.

It uses Western Digital latest high capacity drives, the Caviar Green series, which means that it now consumes a third less power compared to the previous models and should have better performance.

The drive comes with a USB2.0 and a Gigabit Ethernet port; it is also UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) and DLNA 1.5 ready and features an embedded iTunes media server.
