Product Specifications:

Heat-dissipating, aluminum enclosure - Encased in a streamlined aluminum enclosure that remains cool to the touch, this drive complements your Mac, and as always, takes up minimal space on your desk. The book-like design allows two or more My Book drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf.

Premium performance - Save and access data at top speeds with the dual high-performance FireWire 800 interface. Also includes FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interface for maximum flexibility.

Formatted HFS+ Journaled - Works out of the box, with your Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard system.  Can easily be reformatted to work with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

Optional WD Smartware backup software - Visual backup software and drive management control center. Install all components, some or none. It's up to you.

Password protection - Gain peace of mind knowing that your data is protected from unauthorized access or theft with password protection and hardware-based encryption. (Requires WD SmartWare software.)

Power miser - My Book external drives are designed to save energy. WD GreenPower Technology lowers internal drive power consumption by up to 30%, a sleep mode reduces power during idle times, and a power-saving feature turns the drive on and off with your computer.

Runs cool - The drive is designed to run cool without a fan. Lower operating temperatures extend the life of the drive and improve data reliability, while the fan-less design reduces noise output.
