Summary: I really loved this Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for the first six months. It worked beautifully during that time. I had the 6 TB unit and it backed up all my files, I could access DLNA Media throughout the house. It was the perfect solution; until it wasn't.
Summary: This is the first Western Digital product I've bought in probably 15 years because of poor customer service and premature failures.

Summary: I used this as an external drive for my iTunes library and it was a nightmare. It would constantly disconnect and cause iTunes to go back to the default directory. Also it made updates and syncing nearly impossible(they would take ages).

Summary: A STRONG do not buy. You have been warned. This is the single worst computer hardware purchase I have ever made in my life. I GREATLY regret it. Frequent disconnections - I have to restart the device daily. Aside from the flaky connection, the biggest problem is that I lost 50 GBs of data.
