I now have a new iMac.
I decided I needed a large capacity external hard-drive to store all of my media files, so that I can keep the iMac’s hard-drive free for Apps/software.
So far, I’ve added 36,000+ jpg’s, 7,000+ mp3’s, and about 1,500 mp4’s.
These files have only made a small dent in the 4TB’s of storage, about a 600 GB dent.
The WD My Book Studio 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop Storage, worked straight out of the box. It was Plug & Play. Simple. It should provide at least a couple of years of storage for all of the photos I shoot, and videos I make. By then I’m sure there will be 50 TB’s external hard-drives on the market for the same price, and not much bigger in size.
I decided on a WD My Book Studio 4TB, because I already own two WD 1TB portable hard-drives, and I’ve never had any trouble with either of them. One of them, I purchased in Bangkok, Thailand which then spent 18 months travelling the World with me, and suffering many different climatic conditions, survived without any issues – so I am confident that this one will last for many years, as it is only going to live on my desk and not be globetrotting.
