"Way too slow transfer rates"

"Does what I need to do. No setup required."

JayAaroBe, CNET
6 May 2011
  • Pros: People's negative reviews are due to the software. The solution is simple: DO NOT install the included software. Just plug it in and it works. If you don't need to access it from over the internet, this works great as a networked hard drive. Easy to se
  • Cons: Lack of a USB port that allows you to plug it directly into your computer via USB. The only way to access it is over the network.

  • Pros: its white in colour !
  • Cons: says it supports mac OSX - but doesn't truely work with mac. Crap user interface, poorly designed and virtually impossible to work with. You'd be better using it as a door stop.

26 October 2010
  • Pros: Easy setup - once you've read the online support pages or reviews. Easily shared between multiple computers on network. Compact form factor, easily plugged into network in closet.
  • Cons: Mionet software. Documentation does not provide SIMPLE configuration instructions.

"Looks good but network connection keeps dropping"

"It all worked for me at least once including Mionet!"

ujd100, CNET
11 September 2010
  • Pros: For the price, this 1TB network hard drive is a step forward for home data management, especially backups and sharing. It is possible to reliably run backup software either WD Anywhere provided or others eg. Allway Sync on each home computer.
  • Cons: Not so easy to make it work as it sounds in the marketing, especially the Mionet remote file access. As everyone says, a removable harddrive system (RAID) is better than a dedicated one like in this product.

"Hardware is fine, MioNet is a criminal act"

28 August 2010
  • Pros: Hardware seems to be up to WD's usual standards, although it's difficult to tell, due to the hideousness of the bundled MioNet software.
  • Cons: Do not, under any circumstances, install the bundled MioNet software. Not only does it not work worth a tinker's, it transmits your info to MioNet, making it virtually impossible to use the drive without MioNet in the future.
