Western Digital My Cloud EX4

PC Magazine
11 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Western Digital's My Cloud EX4 is a good introductory NAS for small offices, offering very good drive and data recovery, easy remote access, and basic business NAS features. It is not, however, ideal for larger SMBs or those requiring very high-performance storage.
  • Pros: Easy remote access via cloud. Very good drive recovery. Dual Ethernet ports. Dual power supplies. Runs quiet. Large LCD gives system information.
  • Cons: Below average write speed. Lacks some advanced business features.

WD's My Cloud EX4 is a big step-up from the My Cloud

CNET
1 March 2014
  • Summary: It's not the fastest NAS, nor does it include many advanced features, but the WD My Cloud EX4 still combines great ease of use into an affordable personal cloud system that's excellent for a connected home.
  • Pros: The WD My Cloud EX4 offers data redundancy, Windows Server integration, and an excellent set of personal cloud features. It's also affordable and very easy to use.
  • Cons: The server's write speed is disappointing. The mobile app supports a limited number of file formats, there's no search function, and it won't allow you to sort by content type.

Western Digital My Cloud EX4 and LenovoEMC ix4-300d Home NAS Units Review

AnandTech
26 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The LenovoEMC ix4-300d and WD EX4 are both 4-bay NAS units, and there are multiple applicable disk configurations (JBOD / RAID-0 / RAID-1 / RAID-5 / RAID-6 / RAID-10). Most users looking for a balance between performance and redundancy are going to choose RAID-5. Hence, we performed all our expansion / rebuild duration testing as well as power consumption recording with the unit configured in RAID-5 mode.

Western Digital My Cloud EX4 8TB - Når du mangler lagerplads

elektroniktest.dk
16 April 2014
  • Conclusion: Western Digital kan altså mere end at lave nogle super gode harddiske, og med denne server beviser de at de også kan være med på dette markede. Det er jo også oplagt, når de selv kan levere toppen af harddiske. Jeg er overrasket over hvor stabil den har kørt, i den tid jeg har brugt den, og hvor nem den er at bruge. Dette gælder både softwaren på enheden og den man kan installere på sin PC.
  • Pros: Brugervenlighed Her er vi helt i top og den klare sig super godt, der har faktisk ikke været nogle problemer ud over man lige skal vende sig til deres design når man normalt bruger noget andet., Hastighederne Er fine og klare sig næsten ligeså godt som de kendte mærker der er på markedet., Støj Jeg oplever den som næsten støj fri og synes egentlig den gør det meget godt., Design Her under er der flere ting jeg vil have frem, det første og klert også det største plus p...
  • Cons: Softwaren Der kunne godt være lidt flere muligheder med hensyn til softwaren men det er jeg nu sikker på nok skal komme.

Test: WD My Cloud EX4

Hardwareluxx
15 February 2014
  • Summary: Abschließend betrachtet hat Western Digital mit dem My Cloud EX4 eine gut durchdachte Lösung für Einsteiger sowie den ambitionierten Heimanwender auf den Markt gebracht, die frischen Wind in das NAS-Segment bringt. Mit vier Slots steht ausreichend Flexibilität bereit, während sich die Kosten durch den Kauf der Leervariante und dynamischen HDD-Bestückung gut eingrenzen lassen.
  • Pros: Komfortable Bedienung und schnelle Inbetriebnahme, Integrierter Twonky-Mediaserver, Cloud-Funktionen, App-Zugriff und zahlreiche Netzwerk-Dienste, Redundante Netzwerkports und Stromversorgung
  • Cons: Performance nur Mittelklasse (Netzwerkdurchsatz und Verschlüsselung), Moderater USB-Durchsatz
