Western Digital has bumped up versions of its chunky MyBook external hard drives to a whopping 2TB of raw storage capacity.

Can't wait for the useles stats to come out!

but, 2x1tb is cheaper
I've got 4 of the MyBook Essentials now. they're on amazon for about 80quid each
so if the EU price for a 2tb is any more than 160 quid, it becomes a really expensive way to free up a usb slot
I was going to say "Mybook World Edition" but a quick check of WD's website reveals that this product is no longer a RAID drive. That's pretty disappointing.
No doubt they've done this to protect sales of "Sharespace," which costs twice as much.
