  • Excerpt: Setup was as simple as stated; user help from WD website was useful.

  • 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
  • Cons: Slow Upload Rates
