    Comments about Western Digital Western Digital My Book Studio Edition II 2TB Dual-Drive Storage System with RAID:

    I'm on my second one, as I just added another 2 TB RAID drive. Great product! Love it!
    As a professional photographer, I move a lot of huge files around and the 800 FW is as good as it gets. I purchased one of the pre-formatted PC units, as well as one of the Mac-formatted striped RAID drives. Purchased each on sale and then reformatted each to RAID 1 drives, as that's what I actually needed. Very easy set-up and nice software in included as well. Nice addition to Mac's 'Time Machine' software.
    I have tried most on the market. And I will now be using the Western Digital drives for the foreseeable future. Easy to set up, quiet, great speed, and so far very reliable. What else do you need out of a hard-drive. And they even look great on you desktop. Nice Job, Western Digital.

    Comments about Western Digital Western Digital My Book Studio Edition II 2TB Dual-Drive Storage System with RAID:

    The Dual-Drive with raid is exceptional. Not only can you store 1tb of valuable, can't do without information, you can also create a 1tb copy to make sure you don't lose any must have files as well. If one drive fails, don't worry, you have a mirror drive too! This is the perfect drive for photo and video files. No need to bother with swapping out boxes either - when and if you fill the 2tb's - just swap out the drives and start all over again with new files! It does not get any better! I've been taking photo's for years and have used many storage systems - I still can't believe the capacity and capability of this drive! Serious Storage made easy, finally!
