Excerpt: I was tired of using small external drives to back up each individual computer. I needed a way to back them all up that are on the router. This was the easiest way to back everything up. It was so simple. I plugged it in, hooked up the wires, when to a website address, and it did everything else for me. Now, everything is backed up, and if we have any issues, I can restore the data. Lot cheaper than the Geek Squad!
Pros: easy to set up., no loading cd into computer, set up in less than 30 minutes
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!!!
Summary: These things are great! Easy to install and makes your network so much more versatile. I use mine to store hundreds of old movies I had on VHS tape. The space savings alone is amazing. And now these movies are available on any computer I choose to use. I've also put alot of older out of print LP records on the cloud as mp3 files. I even dedicated a section to old time radio programs.
Summary: This product is awesome! I am able to access all of my files from my iPad, iPhone, and other computers, even if I'm not at home. It has a very easy GUI interface for setup and walks the user through enabling the correct features. This is an excellent product so far!
Summary: I have had the WD My Book Live 2TB Personal Cloud Storage NAS for over a year. After the first one had a hard drive crash, which was quickly replaced by WD, it has performed flawlessly on my network. I don't use the Cloud feature, but as a file and media server, it's hard to beat for the price. Your getting a nice enclosure and a NAS for the price on the hard drive alone.
