Today, Western Digital announced it will be giving a boost to its MyBook series of external hard drives. You can now get a MyBook World Edition II with two 750GB hard drives, making the total combined storage a staggering 1.5TB. The World Edition II drive can be setup to share contents via its gigabit-ethernet port and can store up to 180 hours of HD video.
If you’re looking for redundancy and reliable backups, you can partition one of the two 750GB drives and use the other as a RAID mirror. Don’t get too excited though, ’cause this drive is so hot, it’s ready to burn a hole right through your pocket. The World Edition II drive will cost $699 and is shipping today.
