Product Expert HDD external hard drives

The WD My Book Duo 6TB is an external storage device for the desks of movie fans and backup keepers. With the 2 integrated WD Red drives, you can run a RAID setup. This allows the drives to work together and make copies of each other, so you can save all your movies, series and photos, or even entire system backups twice as safely. Connect the drive via the USB-C port or via one of the 2 USB-A ports. If you're not using one of the USB ports left, you can also use the WD My Book Duo as a hub to connect an extra device. Don't worry about internet threats, such as hackers or viruses, because the device protects your files with 256-bit AES encryption. For added privacy, create a password to access your files.

alan l nash | 6 August 2020 | Total storage capacity: 24 TB

  • Pros:
    Fast, quiet, reliable
  • Pros:
    I already had a 16TB version so I knew I would be happy
  • Pros:
    And those extra USB3 ports are so useful
  • Pros:
    Does a good job of saving energy and the hard drives
  • Con:
    For what you get what it costs there are no complaints

I already use an earlier version and the drives just keep driving. I notice the USB3 transfer rate is very good and consistent.
