Western Digital 8TB WD ShareSpace

maximum pc
26 February 2010
  • Summary: Read tests were better, but the ShareSpace fell far behind the Synology Diskstation DS409+ we used for comparison. Power consumption, on the other hand, was quite low: averaging just 32 watts while idle and 39 watts while writing. Aggressive pricing is the ShareSpace’s other saving grace: We found the box selling for just $1,000 on the Web.
  • Pros: Agressive pricing; large capacity; DLNA compatible; quiet; low power consumption.
  • Cons: Slug slow; uses WD drives exclusively; can't schedule back-ups; no eSATA.

Review: Western Digital ShareSpace 4TB Network Storage System

30 September 2008
  • Excerpt: With file sizes rapidly increasing and average consumers owning gigabytes of music, photos, and videos we’ve been seeing changes in the storage industry lately. Increased capacity has always been a trend, but now ease-of-use and accessibility are major factors as well. This has resulted in external hard drives becoming commonplace for casual users, as well as add-on storage being necessary for people that would probably not have considered them just a few years ago.

  • Pros: Easy to use, attractive design, comes with hard drives
  • Cons: Expensive, slow, no BitTorrent downloads
