Great Storage

Eduardo G., Newegg
19 October 2015
  • Pros: I purchased it to replaced another Netgear NAS that I had. I was skeptical of the drive, but i have not regretted buying this. I have lots of space for 3 TB of media that i have, which i can stream to my Samsung TV in the living room and tablets without any issues. I would recommend it for my fam...
  • Cons: I had my settings to my liking to put the drive to sleep when not in use, but a firmware upgrade keep the drive on continously. I had to reset the drive to factory settings to get it back to how i liked it.

  • Excerpt: Use it for backing up laptop, phone & tablet as well as music, pictures & videos. The WD software is ok but I only needed the desktop software on laptop and apps on others and was able to access on the road. With 2TB of storage there is plenty of room.

Disappointing & Waste of Time

Ilan B., Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Summary: BOTTOM LINE FIRST: Does not truly provide cloud functionality. Use free cloud services for remote access, and cheaper alternatives for expanding your LAN storage. You CANNOT connect remotely without using the WD software.
  • Pros: Solid design for its limited intended use.
  • Cons: 1. Does not offer any real benefit beyond other much cheaper or free solutions. 2. Marketing is misleading. The frustration with using it comes later.

works good

Robert C., Newegg
7 February 2015
  • Summary: Plan on taking a day to set this up to run a house full of devises. Back up is good and important so it deserves the time to do it right.
  • Pros: 6 TB is what I need for all the pictures and documents I need to keep safe in my construction business. I have cloud backup online, but wanted something local and faster. This does the trick. We have I-phones, laptops, and desktops that all need a backup location and this works great. It is quiet...
  • Cons: Very hard to set up and get used to working with. I spent 3 hours on the phone with there very good,free, tech set-up service after reading all the instructions, watching videos and trying to figure it out for myself for an hour. Once the tech mapped the drives for me it was much easier to find a...

It works

13 January 2015
  • Excerpt: The best thing I can say about a product like this is that it just works. Plug it into the switch and it shwos up, at least if you are using Windows 7 or 8. It's quiet and doesn't throw off a lot of heat either.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Highly Compatible
