Pros: I haven't had this unit very long but overall I would say that the pro's out weigh the cons. It is a fully featured drive with several apps available from WD to help manage storage and back ups which is nice. Other than that I would say I like the look and set up is very easy.
Cons: Like a lot of people have mentioned data transfer is slow. Like really slow. I also continue to lose connection during transfers and back ups. I don't think I've completed one full back up yet because the connection keeps dropping out. I have quite a bit of HD video I'd like to transfer but compl...
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.
Pros: Backup Features, Pc And Timemachine Bkup, Reliable Performance, Works With Android Apps, Works With Ios Apps
Cons: Slow Access Speeds, Web Interface Complicated
Summary: I had it for only 2 hours, but I tried my best to interpret my so-far understanding of this device. What says above may contain inaccurate commentary, please forgive. After all, it is a simple NAS, does the main intention: storage. I wasn't expecting much, so give it a 4-egg rating.
Pros: Plug n Play: It was auto-setup. had it powered on for less than a minute, it showed up on my network.(Win 7 & Mac both picked up really well) Speed: Standard ethernet cable transfer rate (computer to computer by ethernet via router/switch). This may vary with your router/switch (or WiFi connectiv...
Cons: Security: The security side of this NAS is useless. (As long as he/she knows the IP address) Anyone in your network is able to remote in and mess with the system, which includes setting up username/password, enable/disable public access of certain folders. Mobile Cloud: I did not set up my remote...
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.
Summary: It seems to be a good price point for a backup drive of 3TBs. Just a little upsetting that I had to return the first one right out of the box. I've purchased quite a few Western Digital drives in the past. I will continue to do so, unless the D.O.A issue becomes a larger problem for me.
Pros: It is pretty easy and straight forward to setup. I am using it to backup several machines within my home network. I haven't had a problem setting up new users and shares. The User Interface is clean and informative. I am also using it as part of my Time Machine backup process. Speeds of the backu...
Cons: First unit came in D.O.A. So I had to go through the NewEgg return process. Which NewEgg is great for. But I shouldn't have to return the unit right out of the box. Upon start up of the unit for the first time, the LED went red. I could hear the hard drive clicking around in a failure mode.
