I heard the My Book 1TB Drive was two 500GB drives in RAID, and that if one goes wrong you could take it out yourself and replace it?!

That's what I used to think, but then if you think about it, you could store several back ups, of your computers on to it plus with the music, pictures, films etc, I think the space would soon go down.

Depends on the model, there are a lot of WD versions available..........
The "My Book Premium Edition II" is a dual RAID setup(up to 2TB available). It's much wider and looks like left unit shown below. The 1TB unit lists for $399.

Mine is the "My Book Essential Edition 2.0" (shown on right below)and is a single 1TB drive with USB 2.0 interface.........it's much thinner and more sleek looking.

They also sell a similar unit to mine with a triple interface:
USB 2.0, FireWire 400, eSATA 3 Gb/s.......nice but alot more $$

You guys that think 1TB is to much storage space must not have much of a video and music collection! That coupled with a good backup strategy will gobble this drive up in no time.

Nice, I could do with one, you could just plug it into a server and network it, that'd be cool.

Yeah I think it was the My Book Premium Edition II I was thinking of. I think I'm going to get one of those and connect it via ethernet on my network, so then I don't have to leave my PC on everytime I want to share files with my laptop.

If you compress your movies using DivX, they'll be about 700 MB each. It would take almost 1,500 movies to fill up a terabyte buddy.
