To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Please do a search on the web for this units known network problems. Many users have suffered this fate. Even Firmware updates have failed to resolved this. Power button will stop working and not shutdown the unit. Only pulling the power cord will do. Unit regains connections upon startup, but will disconnect in a few days.
Tengo una librería de varios terabytes de videos, musica e imagenes. La funcionalidad es buena y tiene varias apps para ver el contenido. Mi preferida es Plex (puede costar extra), esto para tener estos contenidos en cualquier dispositivo que soporte la app de Plex (tablets, telefonos, Fire Stick, Chromecast, SmartTV, etc.)
La unica desventaja es la necesidad de tener un disco duro ya formateado ya que cualquier instalacion nueva el sistema te pide darle formato. Yo esperaria que reconozca directamente un disco formateado con NTFS para solo meter y reconocer. Tuve que vaciar un disco a otro, formatear el primero y luego regresar los archivos una vez ya montado el disco en la NAS. Pequeño inconveniente pero nada que no se puede resolver.
Una vez instalado es practicamente silencioso y con una luz azul tenue que no molesta en una sala de estar.
Very easy to install, to setup. The MyCloud option don't work everytime, need to reboot the NAS to make everytime the WD MyCloud operationnal. When lost Electricity for 1sec, the NAS become not operationnal, need to plug it back on to make the NAS operationnal again. Hope to have a new Firmware update that will correct this.
Multiple failed drives, lots of error messages. Attempted to work with Western Digital to troubleshoot, boiled down to a failed unit. Was easy to replace through Amazon. Expected a lot more from Western Digital. Have received replacement unit, haven't tried yet. Not a good first experience using a NAS setup. Hoping second time is the charm.
Bought this as an Amazon Warehouse deal. Not a bad option, there was some scratching from dust on the shiny plastic face panels and I'm almost certain the power supply is not the OEM one, but I cannot verify that. For the price though, for a 4 bay NAS to use with the Infuse app, this is perfect. You will need to be a little techy to get it set up, but you don't need a diploma to figure it out.
This unit has been working flawlessly since the day I bought it. It's very fast with its Dual Core Processor and 2 GB RAM. The mycould technology is a nice touch as well. You can get to your files from anywhere by logging into mycloud.com
One minor annoyance with me is every couple of days, I'll get an e-mail notification that the Firmware needs updating. I don't need to be reminded of this as I'll do it when I'm ready. Plus, I like to read the WD Community Forums for a few months after an update comes out to ensure the Firmware won't break anything.
I use the WD Sync software to keep files synced between the NAS and my computer. It's a bit buggy at the moment, but could be a great product if WD decides to update it.
The machine itself is solid. However, there seems to be an issue where the machine becomes completely unresponsive and the only way to restart the machine is by plugging off the power cord from the back.
If it works, it is fast and easy to handle, but every few weeks or days it lost the network connection, the power button do not work, the display shows everything ok but no response via network, all hard drive led are permanently green, must restart via pulling power cable...
