First Look: WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo

3:27 /

The WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo makes a very good external storage for Thunderbolt-enabled Macs, thanks to its ease of use and comparative affordability.

Hello. It's (??).com and today I have a Thunderbolt device to show you. This is the (??) Mybook Thunderbolt Duo. Now after this you can have to wait for a long time before have another one to show you by long time I mean maybe next month. This new drive here actually look very much as the same as previous drive in my book series from (??). The only difference is on the front here instead of a long (??) big power line you can see a tiny, tiny one and on the back instead of speed fire wire (??), you see two Thunderbolt port. That means the drive here can work with a computer and also you can plug another Thunderbolt device to it in a days been setup. Now on top here you can see that there's a lit. I can open to the drive back. It's actually very easy to access a drive. It have to unscrew the top and pull the drive up. Now take a look here, the hard drive inside they are the (??) green drive. The green drive because they use less energy but also they are a little bit slower than other drive. For that reason in my testing the my book here actually one of the slowest Thunderbolt storage in the market. It's not really slow though it's still really, really fast compared with other none Thunderbolt drive but compare more Thunderbolt drives themselves it's kinda slow. Now these hard drive coming either two terabyte or three terabyte making it a total storage of four terabyte or six terabyte. Now if you would change the hard drive which you can make sure you use (??) green drive because other hard drive are not guaranteed to work with this drive. Similar to other Thunderbolt short devices I have seen the (??) Mybook Thunderbolt dual here does not come with a necessary Thunderbolt cable. You have to buy this again by yourself for another $50. Now the cable here as you see actually really long. I've said it before but I don't know why Apple makes this cable here one size in this slot. Mysteriously how hard that to cut the cable and make it just right for the drive. I'm not sure when Apple win offer that cable but when it does they kinda change your life again. You can setup the hard drive of the my book dual into either red one or red zero configuration. The drive come with a software called (??) utility that help you do that very easily. Red zero give you the top amount space and fast performance but if one of the drives die you lose everything. Red one is the opposite, you have half of the capacity but your datas safety is doubled. Now the final question is how much does this cost? The new (??) Thunderbolt drive come in two sizes four terabyte and six terabyte that cost $600 and $700 respectively. Now that's still quite expensive about $200 more expensive than other my book drive of the same capacity that do not use thunderball but when compared with other Thunderbolt devices that actually not too bad. For more information check out the indepthreview(??).com. Once again my name is (??) and this has been the (??)... Mybook Thunderbolt Duo.
