New external storage edition

 

Western Digital has announced a new line of its My Book external hard drives. The new My Book editions are smaller and sleeker external storage solutions.

Western Digital has announced the all new, My Book Home Edition, My Book Office Edition and My Book Essential Edition, starting at 320GB and ranges all the way up to 1 TB capacity.

The new Home edition will feature automatic backup, the Office edition will come with remote access and sharing, while the Essential edition will be reserved for those that want simple and instant storage.

The Home edition also features triple interface with USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and eSATA, Kensington security lock. The Office edition adds a capacity gauge, but it is limited to the USB 2.0 interface. The Office edition is supplied with MioNet DriveAccess that allows users to access this drive from anywhere and securely share the files on it.

The Essential edition is the most basic model, as it has no capacity gauge and only comes with USB 2.0 interface. The entire lineup comes with a SmartPower feature that turns the drive on and off alongside with the computer. The Home and Office editions come with a three year warranty while the Essential edition only has one year.

The design of the new My Book's is almost the same as the previous generation. Western Digital has decided to ditch the previous "ring gauge and status light" and change it to a simpler line gauge. The rest is more or less the same.

The entire lineup of the new My Book drives are available now and the suggested retail price will range from US$129.99 to US$389.99 depending on the model and capacity. You can find out more here.
