I’m sure there are plenty of WD hard drives in RAID configurations all around the world, but now they’re stepping into the arena for reals with a consumer-oriented RAID array. They’re all the rage, these days, after all – what with Drobo, the HP MediaSmart, the Newertech setup I mentioned a week ago, and I suppose you could even rig up this thing to be an array.
It comes in 1TB and 2TB flavors, $290 and $550 respectively. You can either mirror or stripe, your choice, and they run on Western Digital GreenPower drives so they’re ostensibly low-power. WD has a couple other similar options, but I think this is the most consumer-accessible one. Its pricing is more aggressive as well, although as always building your own is cheaper.
Kind of a chubby-looking thing isn’t it? Cute, though.
