    I'm looking to get an external hard drive for my macbook pro. It seems that I'm quickly losing hard drive space. A big part of the problem is my itunes library, but the other huge part of the problem is that I do a lot of music recording.

    I'm wondering if the MyBook would be a good external hard drive to record to and then access music samples from? I couldn't find anything on the website about how fast it is? Is it 7200rpm?

    Post your reviews of the MyBook external hard drives please. I was specifically looking at this one here. Thanks!

    Got similar version last year, mybook pro, but just usb and firewire400 320GB

    Been quiet happy with it but a bit noisy, it will making a slight humming sound that is really irritating when in a very quiet environment

    If this is a problem then defiantly go for something else, got a older WD drive which much quieter

    Yup, I second that post about it being loud. I also had the previous model and it sounded like a jet engine in my office. I sure hope they fixed that issue

    I have the MyBook Pro version, very nice and stable but it goes to sleep all too easily and takes a bit to wake up. Unfortunately it does this based on some internal setting that has nothing to do with the energy setting on my mac.
