I would categorize the Studio Edition II as abundant, speedily accessible, extra drive space to store your work on, rather than a device for safeguarding your backups which is the Mirror's mission out of the box. However, considering the Studio Edition II's speedier interfaces, why would you want to? However, the Studio Edition II is still speedy, taking only 49 seconds to copy our 1. By comparison, the Mirror Edition took a relatively leisurely 57 seconds to copy the same folder. While I was using the drive on my MacBook Pro test bed, the Studio Edition II indeed powered down to sleep mode quickly when it wasn't in use and also used very little power while active under 20 watts.
Hard drives aren't part of the EPEAT initiative, so it can't get marks for that, but I certainly can count it as one of the products PCMag recommends as being energy efficient; and since it can replace multiple external drives by itself, it also gets good marks for space and material efficiency. As before, I consider the latter two crapware, but at least on Macs running OS If you just need a secure, protected place to store your backups, then get the slightly cheaper Mirror Edition. Otherwise, if I were a businessperson or serious hobbyist, both WD drives would float to the top of my buy list.
