“The My Book Studio is designed ideally for videographers, photographers, video editors and other graphic professionals using the latest generation Apple Macs. That’s not to say Windows users looking for a sleek external drive are excluded, it’s just that WD charges a premium for the aluminium design. And as it’s formatted for Macs, there’s the inconvenience of configuring the drive.
The MyBook Studio doesn’t have a display showing free space, either, and we’re disappointed WD hasn’t catered for the latest generation of laptops with Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 ports. The My Book Studio is an attractive drive that runs cool and quiet. Mac users looking for a little luxury should take a closer look but Windows users can get more for their money elsewhere.”
