B&H has the Western Digital 2TB My Book VelociRaptor Duo Thunderbolt drive for $449 (reg. $649). This drive includes two 1TB 10,000RPM VelociRaptor hard drives with transfer speeds up to 400MB/s over Thunderbolt. I got 350MB/s-ish speeds in my real world tests with it. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

The Western Digital VelociRaptor Duo Thunderbolt drive is a power-user’s dream external drive kitted out with two 10,000RPM VelociRaptor drives. Inside the box, WD includes a Thunderbolt cable (a $50 accessory), which was missing from the original WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo.
The drive has two Thunderbolt ports, which allows you to daisy chain it with other My Book Thunderbolt Duo or VelociRaptor Duo drives. Additionally, you can add a displayport monitor at the end of the chain. [Read more...]
Western Digital is adding to its My Book Studio line with a new 4TB drive that features a USB 3 interface. The new unit retains the single drive form factor in 1TB, 2TB, 3TB and 4TB flavors.
The new USB 3 drives are Mac formatted out of the box for compatibility with the newest Macs that now offer USB 3 (of course, they are also backward compatible with USB 2.0). Accordingly, the new drives are compatible with Apple Time Machine and they offer 256-bit hardware-based encryption for added security against unauthorized access to the drive and its contents.
Pricewise, the My Book Studio 1TB is $159.99; the 2TB is $189.99; the 3TB is $239.99; and the 4TB is $299.99. The new drives are already available on Western Digital’s website and I expect them to show up soon at B&H Photo.
