New WD MyBook Features USB 3.0

Looking for a new external hard drive? Well, if the sleek and sexy Buffalo drive isn’t suitable for you, maybe the speed of USB 3.0 that the new Western Digital MyBook features will entice you? The drive will be available in 1TB and 2TB sizes, and will be 5Gpbs-capable, thanks to its USB 3.0 connection. You’ll be able to pick up the 1TB version for $180, which doesn’t sound unreasonable. While the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, you’ll obviously want USB 3.0, but if you don’t have USB 3.0 on your computer, WD is offering the drives with a USB 3.0 card for an extra $20.
