Some customer reviews of WD My Book Studio External Hard Drive for Mac

Most helpful reviews

Scott, Manchester

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Plenty of storage space, the front display is handy for seeing how much space you have left (this feature only works with software installed) USB & FIrewire 800 connection comes with all the cables you could need including FW 800 to 400 converter. It's Quiet.
Bad points:
The power button is cheap & was difficult to tell if it was working properly. I believe this drive has caused my editing software to crash, system to hang, computer to crash, possibly affecting the mounting of other drives on my MAC, which I still haven't got to the bottom of. I had lot's of problems until I updated the firmware & software from WD site. It seems to be running ok now but I really couldn't recommend this drive. It automatically mounts a virtual CD on your desktop until you update the software. It's really put me of WD drives(this is my first & maybe my last).

thom,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very fast, large and silent drive. You are barely aware that the fan has spun up! THe Firewire 800 interface is brilliantly quick. Very recommended.
Bad points:
Case a little plasticy on top, and the software partition is annoying - though you can hide this, and at only 256mb isn't a real loss from such a large drive!
