Excellent Drive - 03/24/2015 07:46:23

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]

This is my second WD My Cloud, the first being a 3GB and I'm pleased with both. Between them transfer speeds average 50 MB/sec. That's on unexpensive networking hardware, geared towards home use so nothing fancy. The My Cloud comes with a litany of bells and whistles, all turned on, none of which I'm interested in. The first thing I do after plugging the drive into the nework, is turn all these features off. It's all taken cared of in less than 5 minute. That's another big plus for me. I'm enjoying the fact that the web interface is easy to figure out and straight forwrad.

Haven't come accross any yet.

In my opinion, t's a good external NAS drive, fast and cost-effective.

I own two of these network drives, one is a 3GB and the other is 4GB. I bought the 3GB a few months ago and have been very pleased with it. I needed some additional space so I got the 4GB a few days ago. When transfering files from one to the other, the average transfer speed is around 55MB per second. That's bites not bits, just to be clear. My networking hardware is far from being high-end. Just an average home router and a cheap switch. There are two web interfaces to configure the drive, I found them to be user friendly and quick to configure. What I mainly wanted to do was disable all the bells and whitles that the drive came with, such as cloud / media server, recovery, ... I got that done in 5 minutes.

I couldn't find any.

Fast, friendly and cost effective. It's a good, not too expensive NAS drive.

buy a QNAP unit or other Cloud - 08/22/2014 18:09:35

Rating: 1 of 5 Stars! [1 of 5 Stars!]

Ease of installation Loaded my 4T of video's and music onto device in about three days. Easy to upload and install the latest version of the firmware.

Does not seem able to serve up video to my laptop with out halts, pauses... even for only one user. The WD site was so overloaded that I could not even get a login, spent several days trying now and again. The WD forums seemed to indicate that what I was experiencing was not uncommon for this device. Suggestion was to take the unit apart and salvage the hard drive.

Bought a QNAP cloud server and it serves video just fine. Plan to keep my WD My Cloud for a few months and see if firmware upd.s fix the problem, if not then I will take the unit apart and salvage the hard drive.

It's Going Back !! - 03/03/2014 11:50:45

Rating: 2 of 5 Stars! [2 of 5 Stars!]

Effortless setup. Twonky Media and iTunes servers included.

EVERY file stored on the device is scanned and cataloged by WD's software. From what I've read on their forums, this is done to allow for rapid access of thumbnails when using the MyCloud feature to browse the unit. Since I purchased this unit mainly as a backup device for my desktop and laptop PC's I find this action to be ridiculous! The iTunes and Twonky services can be stopped which did help just a tiny bit with performance. Unfortunately WD's File Scan cannot be. The result is very slow file copy and GUI performance. Don't take my word for it, visit WD Community Forums to see for yourself.

There are many interesting features built into this unit. For my needs however, quick response is a must, something the WDMyCloud does not have. My unit is less than a week old. I'm so dissatisfied with its performance that this morning I decided to return it. A Full Factory Restore was started three hours ago - it's at 5%. Based on what I've read in the WD Community Forums, the unit should be restored to default settings by tomorrow evening - shesh. Once it is, it goes back to the store for a refund!
