Western Digital My Passport Studio packs 2 TB storage, dual FireWire 800 ports

My-Passport-Studio

We recently covered the release of Western Digital’s My Passport 2 TB hard drive, and now the company has released a Mac-specific professional series external drive for all your mass storage needs.

The Western Digital My Passport Studio 2 TB maintains a classic metal finish, matching colors nicely with recent Mac models. The My Passport Studio can be used as a Time Machine destination as well, allowing users to automatically back up their system. WIth 2 TB of storage space, it can hold about 400,000 photos, 240 hours of video, or 500,000 songs. We’d say that’s plenty. The other main feature of the drive is the dual FireWire 800 ports, allowing you to daisy chain additional devices.

The price of the My Passport Studio 2 TB is set to be at $299.99, and you'll be able to get it later this month.

Western Digital My Passport vs MyBook

This is a good look at how far companies like Western Digital have come in the storage game. The small, black device is a new 2TB My Passport portable hard drive. The larger silver device behind it is a 1TB MyBook that's probably about 4-years old. Yep, the new My Passport is probably 90% smaller than the older MyBook, and holds twice as much data.

Western Digital has announced the availability of its new My Passport line, which tops out at 2 TB of storage. Yup, you read right, 2TB. WD VP Jim Welsh went on the record saying, "It's the perfect blend of monstrous capacity, reliability and user-friendly technology in a sleek form factor."

The hard-drives are priced at $250 and feature USB 3.0 for quick transfers. There are other sizes as well, if 2TB is overkill. Pricing is as follows: $129.99 for 500 GB, $149.99 for 750 GB, $179.99 for 1 TB, $199.99 for 1.5 TB, and $249.99 for the new 2 TB edition. Check out the entire line on Amazon.

2010 Holiday Gift Guide: My Book AV DVR Expander

my book av dvr expander

Okay, let's keep it real for a moment with this next entry in our 2010 Holiday Gift Guide. We know more and more people are using DVRs these days, whether it's something like a TiVo, or one of the ones leased from a cable company. The one thing that we hear time and time again is that the hard drives inside these things are simply too small to hold any substantial amount of programming, especially when dealing with HD programming. That's where the My Book AV DVR Expander comes in. You simply connect this bad boy to your DVR (it supports a ton of them from TiVo, DirecTV, Dish, Scientific Atlanta, Motorola, and the list goes on) and give it a few minutes to get calibrated, and you've instantly added 150 hours of high definition storage to your setup. If you know any TV buffs, we'd recommend something like this for the holidays.

The Western Digital My Book AV DVR Expander usually sells for $127.60, but Amazon's got it for $119 right now, a savings of 7%.
