It Does What I Bought It For

Henry M., Newegg
15 February 2012
  • Pros: This is doing exactly what I wanted it for. I didn’t like backing up to a cloud and not knowing where my files were. Now I drag and drop some of my large files from both my computers onto this drive, freeing up hard drive space on my computers as well as backing them both up with RAID knowing my back ups are double secure. Was an easy set up to access with my Iphone 4 , Ipad and shows up on my PS3 on my TV too. The initial install was a problem. It was not the WD soft...
  • Cons: A fair amount of reading to learn all this can do and how to set it up to do it. I'm just an average computer guy with average skill level.

"Great Drive easy to install and setup"

villalbalarry, CNET
17 February 2011
  • Pros: User freindly interface, easy to access. I like that you really dont have to configure anything, it is pretty much plug and play.
  • Cons: Yes the Mionet remote service is completly useless, i gave up messing with that..Also the Twonky manager software is also really touchy.

"Great product for a NAS "neophite""

backtomac, CNET
23 December 2010
  • Pros: Finally, a reasonably priced, good performing NAS server for the average (i.e non professional consumer), looking to create their own cloud at home. It's easy to setup, performs very well, it's quiets and is a small form factor.
  • Cons: No Changeable hard drive. No firewire option, dual ethernet ports would be nice for expandability.

"Cheap & fast NAS if you don't need remote access"

cn24, CNET
18 October 2010
  • Pros: Cheap and fast, very quick and easy to set up.
  • Cons: Remote access via MioNet is useless, as the reviewer says. The lack of a download manager isn't a dealbreaker, but the remote access issues are a pity.

WD NAS Drive Review.

David Andrew "the transformer", Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: Great product although a little slow. I actually use this to store all my music which can then be played through Sonos wireless system. I thought this might have a USB connection so that your initial download of music or pictures or even films would be faster, but it doesn't have one... This is a NAS storage device only and can only be connected to you broadband router. The only issue I had was with the media server services and indexing.

Great home storage device

M. Humphris, Amazon
15 December 2013
  • Summary: Great device, works brilliantly! Streams to my TV, and the WD App meant that on a recently holiday, I used my iPhone whilst in Italy to upload my photo's (over a cafe's WiFi) to my NAS box at home!! Quite user friendly, although I work in IT, I would say that a beginner may struggle a little bit, but it's relatively easy to use and there's always google and instructions to use!
