This review is from: Western Digital My Book Studio II 6TB Dual-Drive External Storage System with RAID
Pros: Quiet. User-accessible hard disks. Fast over FW800. Excellent price for 6TB of space. Would buy another one if I needed more space.
Cons: On my Mac, drive can only be configured as RAID0 or RAID1 - you cannot use this as JBOD. Not sure if this is true in Win or not, as I don't have a Win machine.
As mentioned elsewhere, the latch to the drive bay door is quite stiff, and you have to put a lot of pressure on the door to open it.
Other Thoughts: Haven't used it for long enough to determine the reliability, but so far I've had no problems whatsoever.
If the drive haven't been accessed in a while, they go to sleep. The next time the drive is accessed, it takes about 3-5 seconds to spin up.
