Love these but they are a little fickle

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: The device itself is fine. It is just a NAS, so nothing special. Expensive for what it is. The worst part of the experience was contacting tech support with a basic set up issue. WD puts a special "concierge service" card in the box that has a fancy hotel-style bell on it.
Summary: I want to start off by saying that I have bought mounds upon mounds of products from Amazon, but this is my first time writing a review. I felt that my experience with this device was important enough to warrant a warning to others.
Summary: This version of WD My Book Live Duo is similar to the My Book World we originally purchased. We use this item with ethernet cables to share data between 5 mac computers and three printers through a 16 port switch.
Summary: I am over these, and it was my fault for not wanting to spend the extra money. These serve the purpose of being back ups but if you need to access them and have the drives perform, then go with a Synology or something beefier. They are simply too slow for what I need them for.
Summary: This product does what exactly it says it will do. Thus why I only gave it 3 stars. However, the network card that's built-in on this must be of the lower quality, because my transfer speed into the NAS was sooooo slow.
I'm sure it's fixable (and I think the web and application support isn't too bad actually), but it's not just easy--I'm gonna ha

Summary: One thing to know is there is NO WAY to upload stuff to this drive without doing it via wifi. In other words, if you have massive amounts of data you wanna have backed up on it, you can't plug in a usb3 cable and upload it, then hook it up to your network.
