Western Digital My Book Live 1TB NAS
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.
Excerpt: Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are excellent for backing up your important digital files and folders, as well as sharing media between all computers and other media playing devices on your home network.
Excerpt: Noctua gained its fame in coolers world by working very hard to adapt their products to their customers’ needs.

GeForce GTX 780 Ti brought the users ideally balanced video card which also represents an excellent answer to the competitor’s model.

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
Excerpt: The rise of HD content, be it from your camcorder, digital camera or downloaded from the Internet, has lead to a rise in options for storing and conveying this media to your television for optimal viewing. Some of these solutions have fallen far short of the expected mark; some provide a great offering assuming you meet a range of stringent, often impractical, parameters. Western Digital think they have the answer with their WD TV HD Media Player.
Pros: Wide file support, intuitive and slick interface, potentially a convenient media "bridge" for some users
Cons: No Ethernet connection, shame about no memory card support, no HDMI cable
