Western Digital (WD) has released a new product that will make the wildest dreams of digital storage hoarders come true: a massive desktop hard drive with up to 20 Terabytes of capacity.
According to WD, the new My Book Duo is equipped with a RAID-configured system that allows it to read files up to 360 MB/s designed for both casual consumers and professionals.
“With this extreme capacity and fast content transfer speeds, the new desktop RAID storage system has the capability to back up colossal amounts of photos, videos, music and important documents in one place while also providing users with complete control of their content,” the company said in a statement.
My Book Duo is also protected with password encryption which means that only you and people you authorize have access to your files.
Aside from this, it also comes with a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port, two USB Type-A hub ports, and universally compatible cables that basically allow it to support any device.
And in case you were wondering how much 20TB can store, we computed PC Ninja’s data based on a 2TB storage device and came up with:
-340,000 hours of music
-20,000 hours of video (that’s like 2,000 seasons of Game of Thrones)
-6.2 million photos
-10,000 hours of movies (depends on the quality)
You can take home the 20TB My Book Duo for $849 (roughly P43,500). By comparison, average 2TB portable external hard drives cost around P5,000 each so you get to save more by opting for WD’s 20TB option if you actually have a need for that much digital storage.
