The setup of this was fairly and was able to easily see the shares from my Windows phone and my kodi install. Initial copy of data to the nas seemed slow 30-40mbps or so on a gig connected network. Other than that, this seems like a decent start for home nas backup drive. There are reports that you have to create a wd account to setup the nas, but you dont. If you want remote access through the wd cloud you do need an account, but just for a local home nas you can manage it directly via the ip address and not install the wd software or create an account.
I bought this to use as a back-up device for my home computers and smart phones as well as a streaming device for music and movies. It does both very well. The 'my cloud' software is not as intuative as you might think it should be, but it does function. Overall, this device does what it is suppose to do very well.
Good for a family's personal cloud (storage device). Easy to set up and works quickly. Just am learning what all it can do. Could be a little cheaper, being that it is not a dual slot and you have to attach an external drive for raid. Otherwise great NAS device.
Finally, a digital device that unites laptops, desktops, smart phones, and pods. Supporting software/apps and manual are not as good as they should be, but time will cure this as users discover this product.
This review could change as I get to know the product better but at this time I'm not real happy with the software and the interface that they use.
Use the quick start instructions. If you don't want internet access you don't have fill out the WD account info. Just click cancel. The drive will only be accessible from you local (home) network.
Even when wired to network (not wireless) I cannot view my pictures. I have thousands of pictures on the my cloud but, the cloud is so bogged down it will not display the pictures. So disappointed because it would be so cool if it worked!
easy setup, easy to use.
