PROBLEM UNITS

Marigrah60, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • 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.

BYOC (bring your own cloud)

Sven AW, Amazon
9 September 2013
  • Summary: It's on me because I didn't read all the fine print. Instead of being impressed by this device's technology, I feel hoodwinked by some marketing spin. I thought something called "Cloud Storage" would be wireless. This thing has to be wired. If you don't have your own cloud, it is just storage.

slow transfer and UI takeover of browswer

Calvin Hobbess, Amazon
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this product like most people, as backup device and storage area for my media files. The transfer rate of large 4G files is less then advertised. I had to directly connect the WD Duo to my laptop which is a strait 1 Gps connection.

Steer clear

C. Kopp, Amazon
30 May 2012
  • Summary: This is an interesting item, in theory. You can implement RAID 1 and get 2 TB of RAID storage, or you can span both drives and get the full 4 TB. It has a web interface where you can configure security on individual folders, etc. However, these units are terribly unreliable.

WD2go (which you use to connect in remotely) is terrible. It uses a Java applet

Ben, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: I normally think people are overly critical of electronic products when they write reviews, but for this product, I can't help but be critical. If you just need a HDD on your network, I guess it works. But the rest of the features don't work very well.

TOO SLOW

Eric Dalrymple, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Unbearably slow. I bought this so that I can set up RAID to protect all my images, videos, and audio. I bought this a few weeks ago and the thing is still trying to index my files. The light on the front will not stop blinking. Using with MAC OSX is so slow it blows up finder.

Lot of things to love about this device

M. Harris, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Lot of things to love about this device, particularly the RAID piece of mind. The latest software updates helped with prior instabilities and that is no longer a problem. However, this unit simply isn't usable due to performance.

Not like other backup drives I have used before

D. Paulsen, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Is not user friendly and they want more money from you to be able to use it with other computers in addition to your base computer. Not even sure if it really works cannot just click and drag to store info onto drive and still havent figured how to check the files on the drive to see if it was...

Max 6MBs. Long delay before download.

David R. Bunting, Amazon
27 April 2012
  • Summary: After trying this and finally returning it for the reasons below, and trying several other similar boxes, I discovered something the world apparently doesn't know yet: On a Mac system, don't use the RAID setup included in any of these multi-drive external hard drive/RAID boxes. Set up AS ONLY JBOD.
