When it comes to external hard drives, it's OK to be a little superficial. WD's new My Book Studio LX will keep you stealing glances with its aluminium, Mac-matching body and handy customisable e-label.
We trust WD's My Books to be solid on the inside - this one comes in 1TB and 2TB capacities, has 256-bit hardware encryption and lets you plug in with FireWire 800 or USB 2.0 - so a new design on the outside is always welcome.
This one is built from aluminium to compliment your Mac, and its always-on e-label lets you keep an eye on what type of files you're storing and how much space they're taking up. You can coordinate your desktop aesthetic by grabbing a My Book Studio LX for $US199.99 to $US269.99, for 1TB and 2TB respectively. [WD]
