Western Digital's My Book lineup has been going strong for years garnering much success and evolving as technology changes. With the launch of the My Book Pro, Western Digital has created its quickest external storage solution yet and is targeting this solution at creative professionals and data intensive consumers.
The My Book Pro takes the latest technology and combines it into a very sleek enclosure. With this, we have dual Thunderbolt 2 operating at 20 Gb/s along with USB 3.0 connectivity. Internally, WD is using a hardware RAID pairing this with their very popular WD Black SATA hard drives. Mounted on the front, you will find two USB 3.0 ports that have the ability to charge smartphones, tablets or cameras.
In using WD Black HDDs, Western Digital is marketing performance up to 435 MB/s with the My Book Pro while having RAID 0, RAID 1 and JBOD capabilities. This solution is also compatible with Time Machine and does make use of WD Drive Utilities for additional functionality.
Specifications for the My Book Pro include the box contents in the top left while configuration options are to the right. Between the two, we have system compatibility that extends to OS X 10.8.5+ for Thunderbolt with Windows 8.1 needed as well. For USB 3.0 support, you need Windows 7 or OS X 10.7.
Warranty for this unit is three years, and the MSRP of the 12TB model we have is $999.99.
