WD My Book Duo: Dual-drive storage lands in PH

Western Digital has just announced this week the availability of their newest premium RAID storage – the My Book Duo.  Unlike any other storage solution in the market, the WD My Book Duo uses two (2) physical drives inside it (hardware-level RAID and USB 3.0) to deliver massive capacity and super-fast file transfer speeds.

From the looks of it, this newest RAID storage from WD is definitely among the top of its class. With its dual-drive design, the My Book Duo promises superior performance by offering faster transfer speeds (up to 290 MB/s), reduce data bottlenecks, and prevent data loss using RAID 1 mirror mode.

Backup process for both local and cloud-based files (Dropbox) is also quick and easy with the use of its built-in WD SmartWare Pro software. In addition, My Book Duo also has a 256-bit AES hardware encryption and password protection to provide ultimate hardware and software security.
