Worthless

Max L., Newegg
12 December 2014
  • Pros: 3TB.
  • Cons: Loud. Gets warm. Takes more than two weeks to back up 2TB. And that's if you don't have any errors or power outages.

Poor NAS/Cloud Solution with Unstable Software

Gregory Doud, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: I really loved this Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for the first six months. It worked beautifully during that time. I had the 6 TB unit and it backed up all my files, I could access DLNA Media throughout the house. It was the perfect solution; until it wasn't.

Excellent Cheap Storage

Axis S., Newegg
12 June 2014
  • Summary: These work great as a file storage solution. I play movies via file share without any issue. I store over 100GB of photos without a problem. Timely bios updates.
  • Pros: Bought 2, one for work and the other for at home. Both have work flawlessly and the speed it great. I was surprised by the file transfer speed since the price was so low.
  • Cons: Wish the 8tb and 6tb options were cheaper

don't use it for anything important

bob m., Newegg
11 June 2014
  • Summary: As the title says, don't put anything critical on it.
  • Pros: quiet
  • Cons: after 2 years, it died, since the heads went bad it would have cost 1200 to 1500 to recover data. When it was working, it was slow

You Need This

Bomber83, Office Depot

  • Pros: easy to set up., no loading cd into computer, set up in less than 30 minutes

Very bad hard drive!

TomB, Office Depot
29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Drive was available for a few days and then became inaccessible. Nothing could be done to resurrect it. I tried my Linux desktop and laptop as well as my Windows7 laptop and not one of them could access the hard drive after a short time. Completely and totally D-E-A-D!!!

Don't buy if you look for data protection

Varianti "Varianti", Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: I thought I buy a product which gives me a personal cloud and has data protection in case the drives fails. Here my comments: 1. Cloud? Can you remember when you dialed into the net with a 14k modem? That's how fast "the cloud" works. In my Apple wifi home network. 2. Data backup?

Product work but was limited

Padre4One, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: A prior WB NAS device has built-in utilities to move data to and from a USB hard drive plugged into the NAS device. This item worked, but didn't have that capability, even though the product literature implied that it did. I need that feature, so had to return the device.
