Western Digital has announced the availability of its latest My Book external drive with a new capacity of 2TB. This isn't the first 2TB drive we've seen announced, as we've already reported about the LaCie Big Disk Extreme+. However, the 2TB My Book drives are available in three different "Edition's", the World Edition II, the Pro Edition II and finally the Premium Edition II.

Between the three, the World Edition II is possibly the most exciting model, as it features a built in NAS with Gigabit Ethernet interface. The Pro Edition II and the Premium Edition II both feature USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 interfaces.

You can choose between storage space or data security, as all three drives can be set up in RAID 0 or RAID 1. Compatibility shouldn't be a problem either as all three models works with both PC and Mac.

All three drives come with a three year warranty and the World Edition II and Pro Edition II is priced at US$799 with the Premium Edition II coming it at US$749. The World Edition II and Pro Edition II are available now, with the Premium Edition II becoming available shortly.
