The WD My Book Duo is a fast, versatile, and secure way to add lots of storage space to your desktop computer without digging a hole in your pocket.
The WD My Book Duo has plenty of storage space, fast performance, hardware RAID, and a built-in two-port USB 3.0 hub. The external storage device is also affordable, and allows you to easily replace its internal hard drives.
It has a short two-year warranty.
Transfer rates using TeraCopy Pro 3.0 Alpha 5 from one Hard drive to the WD 12TB DUO maxes at 10MB/s, yes folks.. 10 megabytes per second. Now in RAID 0 it might be much faster, but then again, RAID 0 is NOT RAID at all.
Size of Drive Form Factor External RAID
Transfer rates to the DUO while in RAID 1 is dismal
Having recently purchased the WD 8TB My Book Duo External Raid enclosure I wanted to share a few thoughts about this excellent product. I primarily use this product as a backup and archive device. You can never have too much storage space and this 8TB wont disappoint.
Works great for Mac Mini 2011 TimeMachine backups. I purchased the "PC" version because it was a few bucks cheaper then the Mac version. I did a reformat on the drive to make it a Mac journaling file system with upper/lower case enabled.
