WD today introduced its new My Book Mirror Edition dual-drive storage systems in capacities of 1TB and 2TB. According to the company, when users store their personal content on a My Book Mirror Edition, their valuable data is automatically mirrored for extra protection - making it easy and economical to benefit from the data redundancy typically found in corporate data centers. This mirroring technology makes the new dual-drive systems an ideal storage solution for photographers, home users and small offices and anyone looking for extra assurance that their data is safe.

I'd rather have the Studio Edition II for about the same amount of money. You get a quad interface and longer (I think) warranty.

I have a 1TB Studio Edition, and it's far from noiseless.

But it has a lot of interfaces in the back and cost a lot less than this one.

Also, it's silver, which matches the Mac mini and miniStack.

I do prefer the front display on this model though, the circle on front of mine looks a bit out of place.

Just from drive noise? I'm thinking they were fanless as well.

If it's fanless then it's the two 3.5" drives that are making the noise. It's more of a spinning/vibrating noise than fan noise though, so your annoyance level may vary.

All I'm saying is, my Mac mini is a lot more silent than my 1TB drive.

I have seen those selling in the $250 dollar range. I'm sure this one will be less once it hits the street, but I would rather have the Studio Edition II for the same reason. It would also look nicer sitting next to my Mac mini in silver with the white LED.
