Description

The WD My Book Duo 20TB is an external desktop storage device for creative professionals and heavy media users. The 2 integrated WD Red drives were made specifically for RAID setups, in which the two drives automatically back each other up to prevent data loss. This helps you save your projects, video files, photo libraries, or system copies extra safely. You can connect the drive with the USB-C port or the 2 USB-A ports. You can even use the WD My Book Duo as a USB hub, if you have one of the USB ports left. Thanks to the 256-bit AES encryption, the WD My Book Duo is protected against viruses or other internet attacks. You can also set up a password for secure access to your files.

      I already had a 16TB version so I knew I would be happy

      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.

    Good price, quality, and quality ratio

    Anton | 22 November 2020 | Total storage capacity: 8 TB

    • Pros:
      Good price
    • Con:
      Could be more stable when standing

    Good price for a good amount of disk space. I have not had the disk long enough to rate it on reliability, but the fact that I usually buy Western Digital disks of this price/capacity/quality ratio is a good indication.

    My disk is located out of sight, but if it I were to have it on my desk it would need to be propped up to prevent it from falling over.
