Western Digital introduces 6TB and 12TB My Book drives

Written by Fudzilla staff



Biggest externals to date

Western Digital has introduced two new My Book drives in 6TB and 12TB capacities. The drives are based on 6TB HDDs. WD introduced a couple of new 3.5-inch 5TB and 6TB units earlier this week.

The My Book 6TB features a single drive and USB 3.0 connectivity. The My Book 6TB list price in Europe ranges from €253 in a German retail chain to €269 on German and Austrian Amazon. 

The My Book Duo 12TB is a bit more serious. It packs two 6TB hard drives and supports RAID 0. The drive also features 256-bit AES encryption and a USB hub with two USB 3.0 ports. There are just a handful of listings and all of them are well over the €600 mark, which sounds pricey. For example My Book Duo 6TB is practically the same, but it has two 3TB drives and it sells for €299. 

Still, in case you need huge external drives WD's new kit based on 6TB drives is definitely worth checking out.
