Summary: If you have this device and it's dropping off your network, so far the following has worked for me. I assigned a static i.p. to my WD NAS outside the range of my routers available DCHP addresses. For example my router can automatically assign i.p. addresses up to xxx.xxx.x.200. I assigned a static i.p. of xxx.xxx.x.205 to my NAS and also mapped the device as a network drive on my windows machines.

Summary: It works in the background and stores my data OK; I can easily get into it to retrieve stuff that got accidentally deleted on my computer. I have it set to keep 3 copies of each data file, "just in case", and recently had to retrieve two of them - easily done! Silent and unobtrusive, but you can tell if it is working by the traveling blue light on its front.
Summary: I bought my WD drive in Australia, so the adapter needed to change or I needed a converter. This product was nearly as cheap as the converter, so I went with it. So far, no complaints. I do wish WD would put a simple two-prong plug at the end and move the "box" to the middle of the cord so as it would not take up so much space on the wall/outlet.
Summary: I had an external hard drive that was nothing more than a paperweight as I'd lost the power supply. The Pwr+ adapter works as advertised. The wall plug is a little large, so it doesn't play well with power strips, but the unit works as advertised.
