WD today introduced its new My Book Studio LX external hard drive, which offers a high-speed FireWire 800 interface and features a sleek new aluminum case.
The book-like design, with its customizable, always-on digital e-label, allows professionals to archive and find photos and videos from different projects and time periods, even when the drives are unplugged.
Key features include a FireWire 800 interface as well as a customizable e-label that enables users to easily personalize their media collection and identify critical information about the drive, such as the contents and remaining capacity, without having to boot up their computer and plug in the drive. The My Book Studio LX drives also support USB 2.0.
My Book Studio LX drives offer automatic, continuous backup through WD SmartWare software and also sync with Apple Time Machine software. And the 256-bit hardware-based encryption provides a high level of data security along with password protection that acts as a virtual padlock to keep users' data safe. Available now at select retailers and the WD online store (shopwd.com), the new My Book Studio LX drives are formatted for Mac and come in capacities of 1 TB and 2 TB.
The new My Book Studio LX drives come equipped with WD SmartWare software, an optional application that provides automatic and continuous backup, control of the e-label display, password and other settings. The real-time visual interface of WD SmartWare software gives users a reassuring view of their backup as it happens. After the first backup, users' files are backed up automatically every time they change or add a file.
The new My Book Studio LX drives are offered in capacities of 1 TB and 2 TB and have a 3-year limited warranty. My Book Studio LX drives are available now at select retailers and online at shopwd.com. MSRP ranges from $199.99 to $269.99 USD depending on the model.
