  • Summary: this failed numerous times. Each time WD replaced it, but what a hassle... Go get the iomega one. Much better and by far more reliable.

My Book World - Rocks

ITGUY, Mwave.com
9 October 2009
  • Summary: Dont install the software. Slows everything down. The software that allows access over the internet is junk. Use the built in web page. Try not to use over a wireless connection on big files.... very slow. I have mine hooked up to a 1gb router and when connected via cable its pretty fast.
  • Pros: Easy to use and very reliable. Quiet! Fast access and has a network connection to plug right into your router. Also has a USB for adding more storage.
  • Cons: The software CD is junk.

excellent backup

random purchaser, Amazon
15 December 2008
  • Summary: I am not sure I understand the advantage of the WDAnywhere software, but once you wade through the instructions you realize you can install this without ever installing the WD software. Straightforward setup allows you to use this as a RAID 1 disc array, removing some concerns for backing up data. Easy to setup (if you have some level of networking knowledge) and (so far) reliable. Backup software is basic to say the least - but it works....

Six months? That's it?

Andy, Amazon
16 November 2008
  • Summary: This hard drive was storing thousands of family photos, some as from as far back as the late 1800s. The photo library I entrusted to this piece of junk included parents, grandparents, great-grandparents... family from around the world. I'd been scanning them for years, making repairs to the oldest and storing them all. And six months after I got it, it died. EVERYTHING GONE. In a panic, I did a search for any of the pictures I'd lost...

Completely unreliable

Sacha Narinx "Springstone", Amazon
8 November 2008
  • Summary: Don't bother using this storage in anything but mirrored configuration. I bought three of them, and only 1 that works properly. WD Anywhere Access is a joke. Completely pointless, unnecessarily complicated, and did I mention pointless. Spare yourself hours of misery, and just use Live FolderShare for the Windows users out there. You need a PC running it on the network (so it doesn't run on the drive) but works a billion times better. Talking about unreliable.

Highly unreliable drive

W. R. Boling, Amazon
27 August 2008
  • Summary: This drive is simply unreliable, a bad thing for a backup drive, and would rate zero stars if such a rating was available. Within the past year, I have had to replace the drive three times (I've just requested my fourth.) The first two did not work at all and had to be returned immediately. The third was reliable for about eleven months, then simply stopped working.

Good Local LAN Storage

Hasan al-Basri "hasan", Amazon
23 June 2008
  • Summary: DISCLAIMER: ======================================================== I got this drive for local LAN use only. I have no interest in remote access, so none of my comments, nor my ratings apply to the ability to access this drive over the web. ======================================================== Setting up this drive can be a confusing mess, and is one of the reasons it has been criticized so strongly in various reviews.
