  • dont bother

    don't bother if you are wanting to use it to save Microsoft Office files on - I have just been told by WD that because of a limitation in Microsoft Office you cant save directly to it or open from it - an annoying username and password box pops up. You will have to copy and paste back and forth. Pity I wasn't told this by the Maplin staff when I asked them they said it could. Also, I cant create a safepoint with it on Windows 7 nor does a device connected by USB appear as a connected device - both these issues I am back to technical support to get answer to.

  • Excellent drive, does need a little technical knowhow

    Bought this drive as my first cloud drive, so was a little nervous going in even though I'm usually quite adept at things like this. Set up was so simple it was scary. Plugged it into the router, turned it on and within a minute the shares were available and the DNLA streamers in the house were happily pulling content off it. The dashboard is very easy to use, very clear and very intuitive and informative. Setting up shares and users is very easy, and you can control who sees what folders and which folders have media streaming. You can expand it with another USB drive, doesn't need to be a cloud unit. The only downsides I have encountered are that it doesn't have the full manual in the box or on the drive, and it is worth a read, but you can get it off their site. Setting up private password protected shares is easy, but getting access to them isn't quite as straightforward (or I am doing something wrong) and it is here even the manual is a bit sketchy. Cloud services are easy and simple to set up. i quickly gained access to the files on my tablets, phones and remote locations away from the network which is just what I wanted. I highly recommend this if you want a good, fast and easy to use NAS, media streaming and cloud storage, but do be prepared to spend a little time getting to know it once it has been set up, it is worth that little extra effort.

  • Ok but ...

    The media features of this device bog the CPU down making it severely under perform when loading data on to. Don't expect to be copying a movie onto it, and watching one at the same time. It has also locked up twice, when under heavy load. In the end, I turned off the media features on each share to improve performance. The Web interface is nice and easy to use. ssh access is provided at the risk of invalidating warranty, but nice to have when you want to scp or rsync data to the device. You get around 3.5TB of usable space after the O/S and media stuff is taken into account.
