It works

A user, B&H Photo

  • 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. The need for an external power supply, even when in usb mode is annoying, but it's so standard that I can't really complain about it.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Highly Compatible

Unreliable Cloud Drive; Access to the Cloud Drive fails frequently over mobile networks.

  • Summary: Practically, the Cloud Drive is not reliable. In critical situations the drive cannot be accessed over mobile networks, therefore making it "Highly Unreliable".
  • Pros: Specifications are Good! Functions mentioned are good. Good Speed.
  • Cons: It's primary purpose- to access the drive contents on the go, fails frequently.

WD Personal Cloud

  • Excerpt: I have never had a device perform so poorly. It takes forever to do things, a simple delete user takes over 10 minutes. When using it as DHCP it constantly looses the IP and i have to re-install the software to find it once again. I've decided to put it on the shelf. Bad purchase decision.
  • Pros: price
  • Cons: everything else

  • Summary: Works fine in Osx Mavericks, before you choose a NAS you must check your ethernet speed 10/100 is a total nightmare for time machine 1tb could be days to make the first copy! I don't have any issues in the setup, and the cloud service works Ok in my Macbook and my Iphone!
