  • Do not buy - network security threat
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BobR - February 12, 2021

    Do Not Purchase. It is not apparent from the description, but the hard drive is easily accessible y others on the internet. It has low security. One day after installing I was informed by my internet provider that there was an attempt to hack into the my cloud home. A quick google search (should have done that before buying) shows this is an insecure product. I discussed this with tech support and they advised me to consult with an IT security expert. No help. All I wanted to know is that the product is not accessible by an unauthorized person. Just don’t buy this product. The company does nothing to help you keep your network safe.

  • Great product and software to go with it.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TheOldGuy - December 1, 2018

    I was a bit disappointed that it did not actually manage backups. It does sync files that you select. Actual backups must be done with 3rd party software. I use Windows backup and direct to this drive which is auto mounted. The really great thing is you can select a file to share and send a link to whom you would like to share the file with. You can also access your synced files remotely with phone, iPad, laptop if you have downloaded the app. I provided access for one of my kids and he has a separate partition to backup and manage his files. Totally independent of mine. He now has true geographical redundancy for his critical files.

  • Ridiculously Slow, Lacking Features
    Reviewed by Smiles - August 22, 2021

    I bought this mainly because of the name. I've used WD drives for 30+ year. However, this product is just plain bad engineering and is cheap. Transfer speeds are sub par at about 5 MB/s. I've tried all of the tips on speeding this up and had no luck. After i purchased this, I found out that it cannot be connected directly to a computer. What the heck? This is crazy! So if I want to use this without internet I can't? This is a problem. When I set up the automatic backup of photos/videos from my phone it didn't put the files in folders like they are on my phone. It just put them all in one folder. Very disorganized. I will be taking this back to the store.
