  • 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.

  • Summary: .......absolutely useless...... constantly crashing or failing to back up, cant access remotely half the time and generally a waste of money.

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.
