Western Digital My Book Live Duo review
3 December 2013
Excerpt: Our My Book Live Duo test unit came preloaded with dual 2TB hard drives (4TB total) though you can also get a 6TB or 8TB version. The drives are also removable so you can upgrade or change them yourself if desired. The specs are lower than many of its competitors however with an Applied Micro APM82181 CPU running at 800MHz and 256MB of RAM. On the plus side this means it uses very little juice drawing just 13W in use.
Excerpt: The competitively priced Western Digital My Book Live Duo is a two-drive network attached storage (NAS) device that offers an astounding 4TB of storage capacity. It's very easy to use and offers speedy file read times, but it does lack some features and the latest USB 3.0 connectivity.
Pros: Inexpensive, Attractive design, Fast file read times
Conclusion: Six terabytes for $800 isn’t the cheapest storage solution out there, but WD more than makes up for it with the addition of remote access and redundant backups through a RAID setup. Speed of remote video streaming is an issue, though.
Pros: Easy setup; simple setting controls; versatility with remote access via DLNA and iOS apps; quiet operation
Conclusion: The WD MyBook Live Duo Personal Cloud is a pretty flexible device. If you have valuable data at home, you really need a NAS to protect it, and ideally, that NAS should have the protection of RAID. Of course, RAID is expensive, because it halves the usable space. But in return, you get a hugely reduced chance that you'll lose valuable data. But at least with the WD you get the choice.
Pros: Pleasant user interface, terrific mobile apps,
Cons: Costly, proper RAID protection means you lose 50% capacity, copying data can be arduous
