  • Easy to setup and use but be aware of limitations!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Birdman24 - October 22, 2021

    The My Cloud Home device is extremely easy to set up and use. As long as you understand the limitations of the device, it is a great solution to being able to share documents, pictures, etc. among multiple devices even when you are not home. The My Cloud Home is not a NAS device and it requires and active internet for accessing the device, even when you are at home. Using your local network will not work! Additionally, since the device is not a NAS, your backup solution may not be able to back up files to or from this device. Personally, for me, these limitations are a deal breaker and I would not recommend to others.

  • Hardware working okay; Acronis software not
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Huck the IT guy - October 14, 2021

    Thankfully I'm an IT guy because "My Cloud Home" is not easy to setup and install. You see the term "Home" and think it will be easy-as-pie for anyone. It isn't. They don't make it clear that there a new separate Discovery app for My Cloud Home. And forget trying to install the promised Acronis backup software -- it is not compatible (you have to figure that out on your own). Acronis is the single biggest reason I bought a WD NAS unit. Not having Acronis work, and not spelling that out before purchase, is a HUGE disappointment. WD has always been our gold-standard, sadly not now.

  • My Cloud Home App (Android) is crap for downloads
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - September 6, 2021

    Crap Android download experience! I'd give it 0 out of 5 stars if that were possible. The original My Cloud (OS 3?) app was better than the current My Cloud Home app. When you go to "Save to mobile device", the only progress info for the download is an occasional pop up, and nothing tells you where the file was saved (or even allows the option to tell the app where to download the file). I downloaded some mp4 files and finally found that the app saved them under the Internal Storage/Pictures folder on the Android tablet, had changed the filename to something completely nonsensical, and added a jpg extension to the filename rendering it no longer a movie file. Your My Cloud Home app (Android) needs a serious overhaul!
