Recent reviews:

I have owned this drive for three days now. 1st, let me say that Western Digital really got it right in the design department. The box is gorgeous. The drive itself is sleek and curvy, still small and quaint, and whisper-calm all simultaneously. The LED’s are pretty, too. Beauty on the side, here is what the drive does:While plugged into your PC or Mac via USB, it is a fast, calm, compact, movable USB drive. Then, when you want to access the drive from, or stream media to, any other computer or device on your network, you just access the drive via your home network, a hotspot, or the wifi network made by the Passport itself. In this way, the drive is both a home media server and an NAS. (Note that when the USB cable is plugged in, the drive is inaccessible by wifi. Just, when it is plugged in it is an external movable USB drive. But, the & 34;drive lock& 34; choice does let you to leave the drive plugged in via USB for charging, while allowing access via wifi. )Performance:Via USB, upload and download speeds are fast and flawless. No complaints. Via wifi: standard lags and speed for an NAS. Streaming is usually smooth and high quality But I have noticed that the closer the drive is to the device I am streaming to, the better the quality looks to be. When I stream to my TV in my front room from the drive when it’s in my bedroom (about 50-60 feet away), their are recurrent lags, reloads, and the buffering time is much longer. This is reduced when I move the drive to my front room. Over all, you get a beautiful, powerful, fast drive that not only operates as a movable USB drive, however also has the capability to operate as a great wireless NAS drive and streaming media hub.

As one of the other reviewers has mentioned, I also received my 2TB Passport Wireless (aka MPW) from WD early. I also own a wireless drive from another big HD company, so I was in a good position to compare between the two units. In this review I’ll not go over the “features and benefits” like a common product review does — there are lots of those to read here and on the internet. Instead, I’m going to discuss why I think the MPW is a useful and quality product; particularly for power users. Firstly, unlike some other brands of wireless drives, the MPW is both a Media server and may be a Network share. This attribute is what makes it also a wireless NAS. Many devices can see other devices on the network as either a server or a share. So, the MPW may be seen by all my network devices as one or the other. In some cases a device can see the MPW either way (e. G. My WDTV). The MPW may be used as a stand alone wireless device or, when connected via Home Network mode, the media on it may be seen and accessed by any network device that is wired, and any wireless one inside range of the home router’s wireless signal. Though the MPW’s wireless signal is acceptably strong, the signal from the home router may be better, and effectively extends the range of the MPW. Other benefits of MPW being connected in Home Network mode are: All my network devices can access the MPW from anyplace in the house; this will include wired and wireless mobile devices like phones and tablets — i. E. Our iThings and Kindles. Being on the home network adds another advantage: since the MPW emits a 2. 4G signal, high bitrate videos can on occasion stutter or jitter when connected to it via 2. 4G (a limitation of 2.

The idea of a movable/battery operated network attached storage (NAS) device is compelling, however there is still lots of restrictions. All my tests were conducted on Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. 1 with the new variant of the WD My Cloud app as of this writing. I have had enough frustration with the unit to not recommend it till some of the software/firmware issues are completely worked out. The battery runs down pretty quickly — I killed about 30 of the drive’s life in an hour just setting it up and experimenting with some settings (this is on the performance rather than battery saver choice). The LEDs give you some idea as of position, however you must memorize a bunch of stuff about colors. A mechanical hard drive (HD) eats battery — it could be cool to see a hard state disk (SSD) choice, however that could make the cost higher and offer less storage space. It comes formatted as ExFAT, which is not super great for Mac users with big files, however it suffices. I joined the default SSID (network name) and renamed the device easily and quickly out of the box. I joined it to my home network and gave it a static IP address — I can so connect to it via own network and use my network as a passthrough, or via my own network directly. This is pretty neat, and it seemed to work good (firstly — see below). I upgraded to the newest firmware via the web interface on the device and it made some enhancements to wi-fi settings, however broke my static IP settings, so those had to be reset. It also could not query the web directly for the update — I had to download it directly from Western Digital. There are some advanced alternatives, say if you want to turn FTP or SSH on, however no obvious way to change the default passwords.
