We have also tested the eSATA performance against our DIY X-Craft kit and the results show that the WD My Book Home Edition's performance was similar to the DIY kit; only losing to the DIY kit in PCMark05's File Write test, but fared better in the Random 512k tests of CrystalMark. Overall, this bodes well for the WD My Book Home Edition in terms of eSATA performance. For easy performance comparisons, we have included the My Book's FireWire 400 results in our graphs. As you can see from the results, the eSATA performance easily surpasses the FireWire 400 interface in almost all areas.
