  • Summary: OK unit. Would like to see an easy on/off capability since I don't want to leave it enabled all the time.
  • Pros: Reasonable price.
  • Cons: Not really a "drag and drop" b/u system.

mixed feeling

Kris, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: fairly easy to set up, but transferring photos takes ages, and the biggest dislike is that when viewing the photos later there are no thumb nails, its makes finding the photo you want a real pain..

OK but slow copying files onto it

Spoonman, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: In a netshell... Pro's - does what it says on the tin, simple to setup and use, quiet, no problems connecting via Windows PC, Android phone and tablet, PS3 or Fedora netbook. No streaming problems or need for constant buffering. Cons - Pretty slow copying data to it - even with a directly attached device via cable I've not got better than about 1mb per second, so imagine how long it takes to copy a few films to it :( Connections to it have dropped whilst using it,...

Poor software implementation

mikoneill, Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: I was seduced by the claims of a personal cloud. The implementation is clunky. I'm never sure what has been backed up. The WD Photos app only shows a small selection of the many photos for no obvious reason. I'm a very experienced PC user, and have spend quite a bit of time trying to solve these problems, but with only limited success. I'd suggest buying some proper backup software and a cheaper drive.

Yeah its ok...but NOT for Squeezebox users!!!

Mr. Darren Jobson, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Bought this to link up hopefully with my Logitech Squeezebox touch to use without having the computer on to use the LMedia server...I had read that it was possible to install the LMS on the NAS drive and had instructions but alas was unable to do it so have returned...as I'm not a computer boffin sadly using Linux to get the thing installed was passed me..
