Western Digital My Cloud EX2
11 April 2014
Conclusion: Western Digital's EX2 has the same interface and many of the good qualities of other products in its My Cloud portfolio. Yet the EX2 showed a few troubling issues in testing that makes us hesitate to give it a strong recommendation.
Pros: Clean industrial design. Easy to set up. Offers simple remote access configuration via the My Cloud service. Excellent read speeds.
Cons: Average write speeds. Plastic handle to pull drives out of bay is flimsy and easy to break. Hard drives hot to the touch after several hours of system uptime.
Conclusion: The Western Digital My Cloud EX2 is a 2-bay NAS, and most users are going to use it in a RAID-1 configuration. Hence, we performed all our expansion / rebuild testing as well as power consumption evaluation with the unit configured in RAID-1. The disks used for benchmarking (Western Digital WD4000FYYZ) were also used in this section. The table below presents the average power consumption of the unit as well as time taken for various RAID-related activities.

Excerpt: Last October, Western Digital launched the My Cloud . This device was essentially a network connected version of their My Book line of external hard drives, but with Internet connectivity and apps that could reach back to the My Cloud even when you were away from home. One month later, WD launched the My Cloud EX4 , a much beefier version which supported redundant arrays of 4 hard disks, redundant network and power, and a load of other features.

Summary: With its friendly pricing, fast performance, and handy personal cloud features, the WD My Cloud EX2 is an ideal network storage device for a small connected home.

Cons: The mobile app supports a limited number of file formats for playback, has no search function, and doesn't allow you to sort by content type. As a dual-bay server, its protected storage capacity is limited at 4TB for now.
