Price and feature just right

The price and features are good for my needs. I bought it on sale over Christmas and had no issues setting it up. I did have a couple of times when the drives seemed to be stuck, but then again I was transferring a large amount of data. I can access the drive remotely, which is one of the main reason I bought it. It's cheaper having this than paying for Cloud storage from the likes of Dropbox or Google. Not to mention, it private. The only thing don't like so far is that I cannot save a file directly to the drive using the web interface. First, I have to download it, make the changes then upload it back to the folder. I've downloaded the Sync, Backup. and Access software and they all work great. This is the second reason I bought the drive, to have it make a copy of everything I save to my laptop immediately to the storage device. So far its been a few weeks and all is well.

So far so good

We have been using this drive now in our office connected to our network. So far it has performed well to our needs. I would recommend this drive to others.

Great Storage and Access

I have had My Cloud for Three weeks and it works as stated. great for storing all documents, music, and pictures. I can access them from my phone, tablet and Surface Pro when away from home. It is a bit confusing and difficult to set up though.

No bad, no perfect.

The setup was pretty straightforward just plug it in and go. Setting up share folders with permissions and users also very easy. File transfer times over the network were slow. Moving large volumes of data is best done by attaching an external USB drive to the MyCloud directly. But, and this is a big deal, transferring files through the MyCloud interface will not preserve the file dates. This can be an issue if you later want to sort by file date or sync data with the source drive again. They can be moved using the SSH interface using a "cp -r -p" command to preserve the file dates but this is not ideal. I have not tried to use any of the Cloud features to access data outside my home network, so no comments on that.

My Older model is Brutal

I bought this drive in the 2Tb model a couple years ago now, it's useless. Unless they have DRAMATICALLY improved this drive, i would recommend avoiding it. The transfer rate i get on this makes it far too annoying to use for anything other than storage.

Drive Failure

Backup my computer, then when to connect to the drive and got a blinking red light. Drive failure. If I send it to WD they will replace it and I lose my back up, if I take it to get it fixed I lose my warranty....and I broken product.

Awful Drive

I have gone through three of these drives. Each drive became useless after one of the WD firmware updates. Western Digital replaced the first two units but data was lost. After loosing my third MyBook Live and all the data I threw the unit in the recycling bin. I will never buy one of these. Now I am weary of purchasing any WD product. My rating is actually 0.
