The DNLA is NOT Twonky anymore..

Midniteoyl, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: While not a dedicated NAS, this little thing does the job in a home setting very nicely. The DNLA is NOT 'Twonky' anymore and works with everything EXCEPT for some Microsoft stuff, like the XBox, which doesnt recognize it due to MS's stupid 'security'. There is a way around this, however, buy adding a line or two of code. Works great through a PC though. Do yourself a favor though and hook it up via Gigabit and turn off 'sleep' for faster speeds...

Nice and it works,

In no sense guilty, Amazon

  • Summary: Works fine, I just wish the 6 TB version was more reasonable priced when I bought it given the small price difference in the drives themselves. I'll probably manually upgrade them later on but for now they work fine so I'm taking off a star for this inconvenience. I seen that has now changed and if bought today I'd get 8TB but change it into a mirrored 4 TB instead of a mirrored 2 TB like I have.

Good product

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • 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. OK, i know that sounds like a commercial.

Using it for 2+ years

shuvozula, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this for more than 2 years. Really nice and quiet and small portable design. The DLNA server is somewhat clumsy, I wish WD went with Twonky. Very useful if you have the feature pack manager installed: have transmission headless server on it, apache, DLNA, runs like a charm. The only catch is that it can only support RAID 0 or 1 and are using WD green drives, which I have read bad reviews if used in RAID.

Much Better Than Expected

Brian A. Wolters, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I've been in need of storage and lots of it. In this day and age of digital photos and digital videos, storage is needed. No longer can we simply put photo's in an album on a bookshelf or stack video tapes in a shoebox. Everything is digital these days. My current, main system at home consists of a 2TB C drive and 2TB D drive for Media. My pictures are in their standard libraries on the C drive and I've added my videos on the D drive to the Video library.

Easy to set up

Bill Parsons, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: Bought it and plugged it into my network. Now I have my itunes library separate so that I don't have to run my computer in order to use the Sonos system. Love being able to get to my video, audio, and pictures library from anywhere in the world.

Data security and peace of mind, but some hurdles

BAC Acton MA, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: I've had a My Book Live Duo 8 TB device on my home network for a couple of weeks now and overall the device is giving me much-needed data security and peace of mind--after a recent Win7 disaster which rendered a critical computer unresponsive and the only backup was three weeks old. The initial installation was a piece of cake. I just hooked it to my router, plugged it in, then ran the web-based setup program.

It's a solid drive and easy to set up.

WFR, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: I've been using this drive for about two months now. I've given it some serious use for the last four weeks, and it works very well. The set up is easy, and it's convenient to use. I have it set as a mirrored drive and it's effortless to maintain. I can access it from any computer in my house, from my tablet, cell phone, or while I travel with my laptop and an internet connection.
