  • 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....

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.

No free lunch, just a cheap NAS solution.

Christopher Wanko "-C", Amazon
21 February 2008
  • Summary: I'll make this short. This is a network-enabled box with two hard drives in it. You can swap out the drives any time and upgrade, replace, swap, and so forth. If you use the included software, you'll probably be disappointed with MioNet, as it only runs on XP and only after some hurdles. Also, the included EMC software has been dumbed down a little too much to be useful.

Buyer Beware

Avi Goldyne "Early Adopter Techy", Amazon
1 February 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this from CompUSA - right before they decided to go out of business - no returns. First one I got had physcial drive issues, clicking issue, in addition to spontaneously going offline every 1-2 days. RMA process was very good, but second drive has same issue of going offline.
