These large external storage devices are fairly well designed and easy to use.

Summary: If one uses a NAS then this is moderately priced and durable. The associated software works easily. A word of caution is to be careful shutting one down without following their exact instructions.
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. You can use nfs to export shares to legacy systems and samba to share to your Winblows PCs or Macs. Highly recommend it!
Summary: Reading the revews here i got scared! But finally the price convinced me to give it a try! Guess what! It is a PERFECT NAS for the money that it costs! ! Maybe iam lucky BUT i did not Use any software to install it! ! I just pluged it in, hit the web admin page and all was easy as drinking a glass of water! ! ! Its PERFECT. Iam happy having it because it does exactly what it promises. And , NO ! Iam NOT working for W.D. ! ! ! !
Summary: Have only had this for about a week. So far, no problems. Was incredibly easy to set up. Transferred all my music, pics and documents easily. So quiet, If it wasn't for the little light on the front, I wouldn't know it was running.
Summary: Easiest piece of hardward I've ever installed & configured. I've worked with network storage drives at work for years, and now I have one at home. I can access it from any internet enabled computer, my Android phone, and my iPad. The WD app (both platforms) also connects me to the most popular cloud services along with my NAS drive. I researched my options quite thoroughly, and am very pleased with my choice.
