Exactly ten days ago, Western Digital announced the acquisition of the then-competitor Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. The business was estimated at $ 4.3 billion (cash and stock) and is expected to further increase the company's strength in the storage device segment.
Today, WD announced the launch of My Book Studio Edition II, an external hard drive with 6TB of capacity a ?dream? for those thirsty for data backups in RAID.
The new product has four interfaces, but unfortunately no Thunderbolt for now: FireWire 400, FireWire 800, eSATA and USB 2.0. It is fully prepared for use on Macs (including Time Machine, of course), formatted in HFS.
My Book Studio Edition II has a suggested retail price of $ 550 in the United States. 2TB and 4TB versions are also available for $ 250 and $ 450, respectively.
