New My Passport Studio from WD has built-in e-ink status display

This new external HDD from Western Digital isn’t the first to incorporate a display, but I like the look and feel of these better. It uses e-ink to display whatever info you like to know, like free space, number of files, that sort of thing. I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds pretty handy. I’ve got a couple drives lying around and I can’t ever remember whether I’ve recently filled them up with… you know, stuff.

The drives come in the usual 2.5″ varieties: 320GB, 500GB, and 640GB, for $150, $180, and $200 respectively. Technically that makes the biggest one the best deal, at 3.2GB per dollar compared with 2.13 for the small one. And they’ve got both Firewire 800 and USB 2.0 ports. But hey, you didn’t come here to read numbers. You came so I could give you a link to awesome Canadian web comics!
