    Love the cloud concept but can only move data over the network which was horribly slow. I could easily sync my phone but any data from computer was worthless to attempt to move. Tried to backup my hard drive and it never completed, projected to take more than 24 hours. If you could just use the usb 3.0 port for a direct connect to the computer for speedy transfer this would be a good device. Without that it's useless. Had to return it.

  • Nice for backups and sharing but not for streaming

    I bought this with the intention of storing digital movie files (legally) and streaming them to Plex on the same home network. WD + Plex make it ridiculously easy to set this all up. However, despite some users saying that their WD NAS could keep up with streaming and transcoding, mine could not. I tried a few settings and nothing worked; it took too long to load up the movie and start playing it. I WOULD NOT recommend this as a media server. I WOULD definitely recommend this for storage outside of media streaming. Set up is super nice and easy. Cost per GB is good. Software, sharing, and the interface is user friendly.

    We have both Apple and PC equipment and it works with both. Our IPhones automatically backs up pictures taken and it looks like another drive on our HP laptops.
