Western Digital Announces the MyBook Studio LX External Mac Drive


Storage is one of the most essential needs for both amateur and professional photographers.  All the great pictures in the world won't do you any good unless you've got somewhere to put them.

The MyBook Studio LX hard drives come in 1TB and 2TB sizes, both of which are fully equipped with a FireWire 800 interface.  With FireWire, you'll have blazing fast read and write speed, but if you're more the USB type, there is a USB 2.0 port available.

One of the coolest features of the MyBook Studio LX is its external display.  Without turning on your computer you can see how much space you've got left on the drive.  You can even create custom labels on each display, so you won't have to worry about making sure you've got the right drive.

The MyBook Studio LX is slick looking too, thanks to an aluminum casing that not only provides aesthetic appeal but keeps your external hard drive cool to the touch. You can pick up a MyBook Studio LX now for a price of $199 for the 1TB model and $269 for 2TB.  (Link)
