From the Lab Western Digital My Book World Edition

Macworld
28 July 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) You and your family have a lot of media files; digital photo albums, thousands of MP3s, and hundreds of video clips are stored on your many hard drives. What if there was a way you could store them all in one place and share them with everyone in the family? That’s just what a home media server such as Western Digital’s My Book World Edition intends to do.
  • Pros: Easy installation relative to other servers in this review, MioNet backup software is easy to use, No-nonsense iTunes server
  • Cons: Not Time Machine compatible, Lacks more advanced features that other media servers have, No bit torrent features

WD My Book World Edition NAS Device

HotHardware
30 May 2009
  • Excerpt: The old adage, "looks can be deceiving," applies very well to the Western Digital My Book World Edition network-attached storage (NAS) device. With its small and simplistic physical design, housed in white plastic, and featuring only a set of white LED status lights on its front, this NAS device belies the power, features, and depth of configuration options just hiding beneath its shiny veneer.

  • Excerpt: Western Digital’s My Book World Edition is a networked attached storage (NAS) system from a major original equipment manufacturer whose drives are purchased and rebranded for inclusion in networked hard drives from competing industry vendors. Although the LaCie d2 Network 2 tries harder in a few areas, My Book World Edition is a recommended buy for networked Windows and Macintosh users.

Techworld
14 April 2009
  • Summary: The WD My Book World Edition is a smart and house-friendly solution for storing files on your local network. With the added software and services, it also provides valuable remote access and automatic backup capabilities, even if the remote aspect could benefit from some refining of ease of use.

17 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Conclusions Overall, I was pretty pleased with this drive once I got it up and running. While the software could use some work, this is still probably the easiest way for most consumers to add standalone storage as well as remote data access to their network. However, if you are looking for a full fledged file server for the Web and plan on serving up music or video files, this is not the product for you.
  • Pros: Nice physical design;, Quiet and low power consumption;, High capacity and expandable;, Cool extra features.
  • Cons: Included software could be better;, No RAID options for data redundancy;, Windows only;, Default installation of trial software;, Can't share music or video files.

  • Summary: As more and more households have multiple networked computers, the desire to centralize your data for both convenience and backup purposes becomes more and more important. Also, as more of the data on those networks involve larger multimedia files, the size requirements for that centralized storage increase. The WD My Book World Edition 1TB is designed to fill those needs and let you have access to all your data, all the time.
  • Pros: Nice physical design;, Quiet and low power consumption;, High capacity and expandable;, Cool extra features.
  • Cons: Included software could be better;, No RAID options for data redundancy;, Windows only;, Default installation of trial software;, Can't share music or video files.
