Western Digital My Book Office Edition
Released September, 2007
The Pros:Quite and cool during use. Understated design for an office envrionment. Mionet is useful for remote data access, when it works.
The Cons:Mionet can mess up other functions of the drive. Weak firmware support. Auto file sync software is only a 30 days trail.

It features an available 1TB (1,000GB), 750GB, 640GB, 500GB or 320GB storage capacity, with a 16mb drive cache and a speed of 7200rpm. The Office Edition hard drive comes with support for automatic file backup, safe shutdown software which prevents the hard drive from being shut down while files are being transferred, and full interface support for USB 2.0. The Office Edition also includes a free 1 year subscription to MioNet Drive Access software so that files stored on the external drive can be remotely accessed from other computers provided the hard drive is connected to a Windows based PC that is turned on. Additional features include install-free automatic plug in support for PC and Mac computers, energy efficient functionality that automatically turns the hard drive on and off with the connected computer, a heat dissipating design with Morse Code support built to keep the hard drive from overheating (heat is a potential data killer), and a front panel capacity gauge that displays approximately how much space is left available.
