So far so goor
3 March 2015
Excerpt: This is a very goor backup device. Very compact and can be hidden. I just don't like the slow lan file transfers, about 11mb/s. So transferring a terrabite takes quite a while. Latley it has been making a funny noise like it is continuously wrighting. But thanks to it's 2 year warranty, if ti gives problems I will return it.
Excerpt: The product is easy to set up on a PC and mobile system. I have installed it on iOS, Win7, and Android. Initial upload of data to the system takes a long time due to the volume. The USB on the back of the device will speed thing up. The WD user interface could use a design overhaul.
Pros: Easy Setup, Large Capacity, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: I have three of these which are used for mobile device photo uploads, mobile device video uploads and document sharing. iOS and Android software apps a bit complicated to initially set up but once done works great. My family takes hundreds of pics with our cameras and they are instantly uploaded to the servers so there is no need to save pics to our phones or tablets. Only complaint is the speed at which these drives access information.
Pros: Backup Features, Pc And Timemachine Bkup, Reliable Performance, Works With Android Apps, Works With Ios Apps
Cons: Slow Access Speeds, Web Interface Complicated
Excerpt: This product is unbelievably slow and a complete waste of time to try improving this. One of the worse experiences with a product. The concept is great but only if it worked as advertised. I have the latest firmware and updated to a gigabit router and nothing improved. It takes 2-3 minutes sometimes longer just for the dashboard to open on my pc. Transferring files is a nightmare, wired 7 mb top speed and 2 mb wireless. Took me 3 days to transfer 1.5 TB.
Excerpt: Purchased this unit to replace older WD NAS that failed. MyCloud has rather disappointing performance when compared to older WD NAS, and definitely not up-to-par compared to other NAS devices. Still, it worked OK until I updated its firmware to v04.00.00. It became incredibly slow and unresponsive to the point of being useless. From reading the WD forums it seems that this happened to everyone updating to v04, and there is no easy way of reverting to the older firmware.
