Summary: I have two of these. Each has a 7 port powered USB 3.0 Hub attached with added Drives. One side is for Media Streaming, and the other is a mirrored set up for its back-up. I am currently having issues with one of the NAS units no being seen on all divises.
Overheating If you are ok to stop watching a movie in between go for it

Summary: The unit gets pretty over heated with continuous use. There is no cooling fan in this and the disk get really hot and you can't even touch. The led will go yellow blinking that means the system too hot and is shut down.....
Summary: This little box packs a punch. Inside there are 2 four TB drives that can be set up as Rad 0 or Raid 1 array. Inside there is a PPC 32 bit processor with a Debian 5 Linux distribution. It is fully Linux compatible, you can ssh to the box an administer it as any Linux server.
Summary: I HAVE PURCHASED TWO OF THESE MACHINES IN THE LAST TWO YEARS AND THEY BOTH FAIL. ONE DAY THEY WORK, THE NEXT I CAN'T GET INTO IT TO ACCESS MY FILES. THEY NEED TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. THEY ARE ALSO DIFFICULT TO GET A HOLD OF.
Summary: WD is a brand you can rely on. The raid makes it perfect reliable storage. NAS is the way to share on home networks. Cloud is great way to extend share to smart devices as well as remote access.
Summary: Easy to install and set up. Kinda slow that's why only 4 stars. I have 3 other WD My Book drives which have been happily storing and streaming data for 6 years now. One of them went west so it had to be replaced. No data was lost. Want good and reliable storage? Use WD.
