WD My Net N900 Central Review
29 January 2013
Summary: Final Thoughts
The WD MyNet N900 Central is unit worth considering, especially for users who do not already have a network storage solution in their house or small office. 2 TB is a considerable backup space for most users, and the unit’s ability to serve up to DLNA-certified players such as the Playstation 3 and some Roku devices is definitely a selling point to the media playback crowd.
Summary: Overall, the Western Digital My Net N900 is a good buy for those intimidated by the term "Network Attached Storage," "Router," or both. Setting up the N900 was smoother than the Seagate or the Iomega, and we had no problems configuring the router, cloud access and apps. While those looking for a more robust solution would do better with the Iomega StorCenter ix2-dl, the N900 is ideal for those seeking a simple backup solution with a router, to boot.
Pros: Easy to configure, Mobile apps worked smoothly, Combo router and storage
Review and Giveaway: Western Digital My Net N900 Wireless Router
24 November 2012
Excerpt: Back in 2010, I purchased Apple’s Airport Extreme wireless router for my daily Internet perusing purposes. I was so satisfied with the purchase that I haven’t even looked at any other options. However, Western Digital, the manufacturers of storage and networking products, reached out to me to review their My Net N900 wireless router, and
Excerpt: Western Digital surprised a lot of people recently when it announced it was entering the router business. After all what could the hard drive manufacturer bring to an already crowded market? Integrated storage for a start. Most of the new WD My Net routers are fairly conventional but the N900 Central features a built-in hard drive turning it into an effective network-attached storage (NAS) device.
Pros: Very simple administration combo NAS and router top-speed local networking.
Cons: Relatively weak NAS features compared to a dedicated device that price.
WD My Net N900 1TB Central Dual Band (WDBKSP0010BCH) 1TB Storage Router Review
24 September 2012
Conclusion: So its a dual Band router with 1TB worth personal cloud storage- not as a near full-fledged NAS as I would have perhaps thought it would have been. I know to a certain extent I may have put together a somewhat respectable sized write- up, but I would have called this a review if I had a good enough 5GHz dongle. This way I could do the wireless test 2.5 GHz and 5 GHz with both 20 and 40 MHz Channel bandwidth. But this is where the performance numbers stay.
Excerpt: Western Digital is not a name typically associated with networking and routers. If you look at their product line over the last few years it makes sense though. The Western Digital MY NET routers should make a fine accompaniment to their Powerline AV Storage, and WD TV Live.
Excerpt: The days of needing a router just to catch up on captioned cat photos have long since gone the way of the beeper. Today, everything from video calling and media streaming, to automatic “cloud” backups and farming gold in mythical lands is funneled through home broadband — not just on desktops or laptops, but on TVs, smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles as well.
Excerpt: We were surprised when we heard that Western Digital, which is largely known for its storage and multimedia devices, recently entered the networking segment. The brand has recently launched a range of wireless networking routers and we had a hands on with the MyNet N900 HD dual-band router. Let’s see what it has in store for you.
Conclusion: It's always with a bit of trepidation that we align our expectations when a manufacturer ventures out of its comfort zone, as Western Digital did by releasing its first wireless home networking gear. For a first at-bat, however, the My Net N900 is a solid outing. The wireless transfer performance wasn't enough to earn the My Net N900 a best-in-class award, though it's not a slow device, and there's something to be said for the network traffic prioritization that gives...
Pros: Dual-band radios (2.4GHz and 5GHz), FasTrack technology prioritizes streaming media and game content, Easy to configure, Solid performance from short distances, USB drive and printer sharing
Cons: Signal strength is average, Can't mount the router vertically
