£30 off the normal price, plus use code 'EGG5' for an extra fiver off, taking it to this price. Collect from store or I think you can also do free delivery. Seems like a good drive for a good price. I believe they have missed out the term 'World Edition' from the description.

My Book World Edition Home Network Storage
With the My Book World Edition it's easy to set up a central storage location in your home that is compatible with both Mac and Windows files - simply connect the drive to your network router and you’re up and running in just a few minutes. Using the included back up software you can protect your family’s PCs with automatic and continuous backup plans, store all your digital media in one central location so everyone in the family can have access to it and securely access your files from anywhere and at any time with remote access technology.
Keep your family’s data safe
If you’re the family Chief Technology Officer, you understand the importance of backing up photos, music, video and all the other files that are so important to your family, right? Maybe you’re the only one in the house that gets it, but now you won't have to nag the rest of the family to back up, or chase down their computers to do it yourself. In just a few simple steps you can set up automatic and continuous back up to the World Edition drive for all your family’s computers.
Keep the files on your laptop backed up without even thinking about it
You’ve been out at the coffee shop writing your novel and now you’re home and you know you should back up your work. Sigh. But, with the My Book World Edition drive it’s no longer a chore, in fact, it’s easy. Just turn on your laptop and log into the home network. That’s it. Your files will be backed up automatically. It’s not hard to set it up, and once you’re done it’s always automatic and you can stop thinking about it.
Play music and video files on your TV
Your epic trip-to-Africa movie is here on the computer in the den. Your big, beautiful new plasma TV is there in the family room. How do you get that movie from here to there? My Book World Edition can be your home's central media hub. From it you can stream photos, music, and videos to your home entertainment centre - all you need is the My Book World Edition drive and a digital media adapter or a game console like an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, and your masterpiece is there on the big screen.
High-speed data transfer and Gigabit
Ethernet in a stylish, small-footprint design.
Play all your iTunes music on any computer in the house
You use iTunes to manage your music and so does the rest of the family, so there are music files on all of your family’s computers. With the My Book World Edition drive, you can put all of that music in one place so that everyone can listen. Store all your family’s iTunes music on the drive, find the drive on any computer on the network, open iTunes, and, ta-da, there’s the music.
Get to your data no matter where you are
Imagine you’re out of town, interviewing for a new job. You need a new copy of your CV and it’s only on your home computer…which is turned off. Yikes. But you’re OK, because you stored the resume on your My Book World Edition drive. The drive is always on, and you can get to it through the Internet, any time, anywhere. Excellent! Now you can knock ‘em dead in the interview.
Automatic and continuous backup for all the computers on your network
Now you can easily back up data from all your home computers with the included continuous backup software. Set it and forget it; every time you save something it's instantly and automatically backed up. Plus, with simple file recovery, you can restore lost, damaged or older files back to their original location with a couple of clicks. Backup files are stored in the same file structure that you originally saved them, so it’s easy and intuitive to find files.
Stream movies and music to your TV
and access your data anytime, anywhere.
Stream digital media anywhere in your home
With a built-in media server for streaming music, photos and movies to any DLNA certified multimedia device such as Playstation 3, Xbox 360, wireless digital picture frames and connected audio receivers (DLNA 1.5 and UPnP certified) you can also centralise your music collection and stream to a Mac or Windows PC using iTunes software. My Book World Edition even uses cutting-edge technologies to deliver high performance read and write speeds that are ideal for the most demanding users, giving you best-in-class performance.
Easy to set up, easy to find on your network
Set up is a snap with the My Book World Edition; in just a few minutes you’re up and running. Mac and Windows Vista computers will automatically find your My Book drive in seconds, and our simple discovery software makes it easy to find the drive with Windows XP systems. MioNet remote access technology also makes it easy for you to securely share photos and documents with friends and family, while the USB 2.0 utility port allows you to turn any USB drive into an instant network drive or extra capacity for your World Edition.
Cooler, quieter and eco-friendly
Equipped with WD drives using WD GreenPower technology, this system consumes significantly less power and delivers performance on par with power hungry network storage devices using 7200 RPM hard drives. You can see at a glance how much space is available on your drive via the capacity gauge, and thanks to high-speed data transfer with Gigabit Ethernet, your Gigabit networking and transfer rates are up to five to six times faster than other standard 10/100 Ethernet network storage systems (this performance is comparable to USB 2.0 direct-attached storage. You results will vary based on the file size and format, settings, features, software and other factors).
New USB cables
WD has increased the retention force specification on all our Micro USB cables and we are offering free replacement cables to consumers that have reported an issue via customer service.
