Awful

James H., Newegg
14 June 2015
  • Pros: It's a network drive.
  • Cons: It was never stable. I'd set it up and no matter how I'd set it up, it was disconnected a few hours later. Which makes it difficult when one of the things I used it for was my iTunes Library. Flaky from the beginning. I consulted with WD several times, they'd tell me something else, and it still ...

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.

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

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.

One of the 2 worst products I have ever owned.

Brad D., Newegg
7 March 2014
  • Summary: STAY AWAY even from used ones.
  • Pros: None, you shouldn't ever ever ever buy a WD product.
  • Cons: Where can I start. This this doesn't work whatsoever and they never update the firmware with any relevant fixes. Itunes media server has NEVER worked on it. When I first bought it, we renamed the device and once renamed, you couldn't connect to it anymore, it would not accept any username or pass...

Slowest Drive I have ever used

Robb, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I'm not often compelled to write negative reviews, but this drive is UNBEARABLY slow. I have other Mybook drives that don't have nearly the hang ups this drive does. deleting or moving large amounts of data is a nightmare on this drive.

Garbage Product & Horrble Support Site

D&A, Newegg
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I've done everything right! Netgear R6250 Router with proper settings, CAT 6 Cables less than 10 feet long, GB network card on PC wired to the router as is the My Book and I get 700Kb transfer rates max. I've spent hours reading their poor support doc's that led me nowhere.
  • Pros: Size
  • Cons: Promised features that never work. No USB. Slow, slow, slow. Keeps dropping connection for no reason.
