Summary: In a world that external and network storage is becoming not just a commodity, but a necessity, the WD My Book World network drive is the solution for wireless storage and home entertainment media center needs.
Summary: This is the second one I have owned, The first one just became too small. I work in IT and rely heavily on this unit. It gets a really good work out as I am constantly reading and writing to it 24 hours a day. I have NEVER had to reset it.
Summary: I purchased the WD NAS for backup and storage. Setup was pretty easy. The included backup software has licenses for four computers. Files are backed up right after you save them so they're are always there when you need them. The backup software also lets you save multiple copies for changed files.
Summary: It's a good external drive, but it freezes when i start downloading torrent files directly to it. I don't know why, but I can watch movies or access any kind of file, but if I start downloading the issue happens.
Summary: The drive works great and as described, however both the Twonky media software and the WD Backup Anywhere software are terrible, outdated, and fail frequently. The only thing worse is the customer support which is non-existent.
Summary: This item is designed for basic usage only. After installing the driver, two drives will be mapped: Download and Public. Anyone in the domain will have full access to these two drives by simply mapping it as followed: \\MyBookWold\Download and \\MyBookWorld\Public.
Awful hard drive! Do not trust your data with this!

Summary: I am so disappointed with this product. I bought it in June 2010 and it's now October 2010. My hard drive has completely failed and it hasn't even been 6 months. We've purchased other Western Digital products in the past that we've been happy with, but this one is definitely not worth what we paid...

Summary: I had a problem with the installation software. The buttons on the menus were not displaying any legend/text i.e. the "Next" button did not have any associated text saying it was next so I did not know what button to press. The buttons were blank.
