No questions asked. A month ago I had purchased a couple of Western Digital My Passport drives to send data to my daughter and was impressed with how painless the installation process was, how well they worked, and how complete the documentation is!

I am currently using the firewire connection and have not had any problems.

I have been using the drive for a bout 3 weeks. Two other properties I appreciate: It is dead quiet and it is unobtrusive. I truly forget that it is here.

Aside from the large capacity and great FW speed, the My Book Studio is attractive and very quiet.
