Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB review

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.

  • 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.

Digital Home Thoughts
11 January 2008
  • 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.

Western Digital My Book World Edition review

17 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Like a well-behaved child, Western Digital's latest My Book World Edition is made to be seen and not heard: it's impressively quiet, and its glossy white case looks sleek. As with six of the other NAS devices here, you can copy files to and from the My Book over the internet with a web browser instead of an FTP program.
