"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.

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

"Worst NAS product on the market."

sdrhythm, CNET
3 August 2013
  • Pros: Can store things like an external at an incredibly slow transfer rate (sarcasm, there are no pros to this piece of junk)
  • Cons: Where to begin... 1. Getting the MBL to function consistently is a chore 2. Twonky media server really was a POOR choice 3. Drops connectivity constantly 4. Mediacrawler process drags everything 5. SLOOOOW transfer rate

Be3ble, CNET
21 June 2013
  • Pros: The iPad app is quite handy
  • Cons: Terrible speeds - box claims 100MBps, actual speed is more like 5MBps. Took me 6 force resets and 3 reboots to get it working the first time Web GUI is horrible and slow
