  • Excerpt: I have been using this drive for quite some time and it has been great. By no means a hardcore NAS, but quite convenient and reliable for the price.

  • Summary: Easy to setup a breeze to use. Nice transfer rates once i used my GLAN switch instead of my 100 MB wifi router. Still dont expect the performance of an internal drive but it's good enough to alloy me to view 1080p movies on my TV with no skips.
  • Pros: Fast easy setup
  • Cons: none really

  • Excerpt: Product does not work well with Mac OSX. It does not function as a time machine backup drive. The Mac does not even pick it up as a time machine drive.

  • Cons: Constantly disconnecting, failed file transfers, SUPER SLOW (0.2% or less of a gigabit connection).

"SOFTWARE IS PATHETIC and UNRELIABLE. WD CAN'T EVEN FIX"

iduffy2, CNET
17 September 2013
  • Pros: Good concept and should be able to back-up multiple devices. Hardware seems okay. WD support gets an "A+++" for effort.
  • Cons: Software fails routinely. Reinstalled at least 5 times including 3 times by WD support & it still fails routinely. Even when it fails, it shows it has succeeded but when you check the files are not backed-up. Can only allow 1 schedule for b/u.

"The worst ever."

xtranet, CNET
12 September 2013
  • Pros: It's not too expensive
  • Cons: It doesn't last very long, and give not hint that it's going to fail. When it does work, it takes 40-90 seconds to respond, and then it takes just as long as that to open any folder.

"This nas is THE WORST"

mymisguy, CNET
7 September 2013
  • Pros: 2TB harddrive
  • Cons: 1. Slow 2. WD2go is a joke as it constantly crashes pc and mac as it hangs continually 3. WD2go maps folders to your Mac/PC but take forever to populate 4. Downloading is next to impossible

Just what I needed...

The Lucas, rakuten

  • Summary: Up until purchasing this I had been using old hard drives I'd been collecting here and there for extra backup and storage. While that works alright, it can be a pain and time consuming. The setup was easy and the programs with it are pretty good. I transferred my most of my media to it and have found that the play back on our Google TV has improved greatly compared to playing it from my desktop computer and having to leave it on when I needed to access it.

  • Excerpt: Bought 1 at the beginning of the year and now I own 3! This is the best value for money and best of all the drives inside are the wd red series not green, so much more reliable.
