    Easy to set up, easy to use - Installation is a snap because you don't really install this drive, you just plug it in and it's ready to use. There is no CD to install; the included software loads from the drive the first time you plug it in.

    Automatic backup - Save a copy of your photos to an online sharing service, duplicate your e-mail and contacts to your iPod, and back up all your precious files to your My Book. Set it and forget it; every time you save something it's automatically backed up.

    Flexible triple interface - USB 2.0 -- For convenience and compatibility among multiple computers. FireWire 400 -- A high-performance interface that's perfect for Macintosh computers. eSATA 3 Gb/s -- The ultra-fast eSATA interface gives you speed comparable to a state-of-the-art internal hard drive.

    Fits right in - Takes no more space than a paperback book. Collect two or more and they nest neatly together like volumes on a shelf.

    Capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your drive. (Works with the USB and FireWire connection only.)

    Smart and energy efficient - Turns itself on and off with your computer and Safe Shutdown prevents the drive from being powered down until all your data has been written. (Works with the USB and FireWire connection only.)

    Designed to keep the drive inside cool - The My Book enclosure's heat dissipating design with Morse Code prevents heat buildup - a notorious data killer. How cool is that?

    Environmentally friendly - Our environmentally-friendly drive is designed to save power by going into standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity. When you're ready to use it, it wakes up automatically.

    Comments about Western Digital Western Digital My Book Home Edition 1TB External Hard Drive:

    I produce a major sports team's radio broadcasts and we were coming to the end of the 500GB drive that had been set aside for archiving every game, every highlight, commercial, production element and pregame interview. Heading into the weekend our IT folks could not be reached to expand the drive for the team's archives.Last night's game would have put us over the top. I temporarily moved some highlights over to a DVD as a quick backup. And started looking for something that would handle three years worth of sound ...and more![...] Out of the box. Plugged it in, used the USB into the PC and zip...2 hours later every bit of the 500GBs of archival sound was moved over to the MyBook in less time than it took to play tonight's game.Out of the box - it did the job!
