Fast, Green and Mac Ready

Features:

  • The speed you need
    Lightning-fast FireWire 800 combined with RAID 0 (Striped) yields the speed you need for smooth video editing, rendering complex 3D objects or special effects and saving huge blocks of data in record time.
  • Cooler, quieter, eco friendlier
    Designed to use only WD's GreenPower drives, this system uses about 30% less energy than standard systems and runs quietly because it doesn't need a fan.
    ( Based on comparison between a 1 TB dual-drive system using 7200 RPM drives and a 1 TB dual-drive system using WD's GreenPower drives.)
  • Formatted for Mac
    Works with Apple's Time Machine. Includes software and instructions for reformatting to Windows Vista. (The 4TB Version works with Windows Vista only. Windows XP does not support hard drives capacities above 2TB.

5 out of 5 stars   EXCELLENT RESPONSE TIME; CAREFUL SHIPPER
By Dan (Rochester, NY) March 26, 2013
Review submitted for Western Digital 4TB My Book Studio Edition II Hard Drive with Quad Interface { WDH2Q40000N } (WDH2Q40000N)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Set Up, High Capacity, Easy to use, Attractive Design
Cons:
Other Comments: BuyDig offered the best price of any I found on the Internet. They shipped immediately in a very well packaged box. The external hard drive worked as expected when plugged in and connected to my Mac. It couldn't have been easier, nor could I have been more satisfied. This is an excellent vendor who jumps on your order and gets it right.

5 out of 5 stars   Best Drive for the price!
By John the Ray (Canyon Lake, Texas) March 23, 2013

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Simple Plug It In, Easy to use, Easy To Set Up, High Capacity, Attractive Design, Quiet
Cons: 12hr Configuration For Pc
Other Comments: Great Drive! Simple to use, quiet, fast with Firewire 800. Comes configured for a Mac, so if you have a PC it's going to take at least 12 to 16 Hours to reconfigure. I don't know about the CD Backup software that comes with the WD drive. I'm using Retrospect 7.7 for that, with no problems. I am running a PC Audio Labs - MSI X58 Pro-E (MS-7522) Mainboad. Intel Core i7 970 @ 3.20 Ghz. (6 cores 12 threads) 24GB DDR3-1333 Triple Channel (6x4GB). ATI Radeon HD 4670 Dual DVI Graphics Card. Operating System: Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
