Western Digital My Book Live 1TB NAS

HEXUS
24 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Western Digital has latched on to the network-attached storage (NAS) market with the introduction of three simple-to-use products. The My Book Live range is the most consumer-focused range, aimed at users who need centralised file access for their computers, tablets and smartphones. Looking like a regular external drive, the Live's Gigabit Ethernet port is the only overt indication it's a NAS product.

From the Lab Western Digital My Book Live

Macworld
29 March 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Western Digital’s My Book Live is the latest iteration of the company’s consumer line of network-attached storage devices. Unlike most professional-grade devices, the My Book Live isn’t a port-laden behemoth with swappable drives and an imposing drive interface, but a simple way for the average person to share and stream media over an open network.
  • Pros: Great performance, Capacious single-drive model
  • Cons: No USB or FireWire ports, Remote access app only supports JPEG files

Western Digital My Book Live

MacWorld
8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: At first glance, there’s nothing particularly special about the My Book Live. It offers similar features to most of its competitors, with a Gigabit Ethernet interface for connecting to your home or office network. It works with Time Machine and acts as an iTunes server and also supports UPnP networking for streaming music and video to other non-Apple devices.
  • Pros: A fast, affordable and easy-to-use network drive; useful companion iOS apps; works with Time Machine and acts as an iTunes server
  • Cons: No WiFi, RAID, or USB ports

The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has. True, we would all pr...

Western Digital WD TV review Review

CNET
1 July 2009
  • Summary: Considering how little it costs, it's hard to complain about the Western Digital WD TV. And, as much as we like the Seagate Freeagent Theater, it doesn't have anywhere near the same playback capabilities as the WD TV, which can play back proper 1080p video. The WD TV is also cheaper.
  • Pros: Low price, Simplicity, Appealing user interface, Good format support
  • Cons: Occasional inability to play files
