For this review, I’m comparing 4 NAS I personally use:1. This WD My Cloud EX2 4TB2. Synology DiskStation 2-Bay (Diskless) Network Attached Storage (DS213j)3. NETGEAR ReadyNAS 100 Series 102 4TB (2 x 2TB) 2-Bay Network Attached Storage (RN10222D-100NAS)4. Buffalo LinkStation 420 4 TB 2-Drive 2 x 2 TB High Performance NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server (LS420D0402)The Western Digital My Cloud EX 2 I was shipped sports a pair of WD Red NAS drives. TheNetgear ReadyNAS came with a pair of Toshiba DT01ACA100 drives – 7,200 RPM drives Toshiba touts as being engineered for high performance and low power for cooler operation. I installed in my Synology Diskstation DS-213j two Seagate NAS drives (ST3000VN000). My Buffalo LinkStation also shipped with a pair of TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 32MB Cache SATA 6. 0Gb/s Drives. As for price, the WD, Netgear and Synology are inside some bucks of each other if you purchase them diskless. The Buffalo is by far the cheapest – as it should be. HARDWARE COMPARISON:As for processors and memory, they all have 1. 2 GHz processors and 512 MB DDR3 RAM. They use different chip manufacturers (ARM, Marvel etc. ) but for home use I didn’t notice any important speed differences that could make me want to decide one over the other. In all other hardware parts Netgear leads the pack.



I have owned a big number of Western Digital network devices. A pair of network RAIDs serve as my small company backup system. A pair of their TV Live settop boxes have supported my in-home streaming for a while. After one of my old MyCloud drives bit the dust (it happens) I set up a NAS from another company. It worked, however was generally a little clunky. This new drive means I can get my home system back onto WD. This is my 1st experience with the EX2 series, and it is only taken some days to appreciate how much WD has added. I should say at the outset that a device like this isn’t for a network beginner, regardless how strongly it may be pitched in that direction. Still, it is easy to manage if you are over the threshold of basic network knowledge. There is the possible for misunderstanding at the outset: the 1st thing you see is a MyCloud application. It gives you file access to the device, however that is not where the action is. You will have to log into the browser interface. 1st you will have to find the IP address of the device (I just look at the DHCP log of my router) and type that address into your browser. That will give you full access to the device and its many potential. The browser interface is clean and informative. The home page shows basic device position (a nice live graph of network, cpu and disk handling) and presents other pages for setup and utilities. The drive is quite configurable and you may be able to easily change the RAID model, add AFP/Samba support, iSCSI, VLAN. You may change the IP address to a fixed value (my common approach with a big home network). DLNA users (that is me) will be happy to see that the Twonky software package is fitted. That is the cleanest and most powerful DLNA server and is another-cost item on many other servers.



The drive arrived quickly and was easy to install. The data redundancy feature was very encouraging to me, and I proceeded to move a big part of data from my hard drive to my EX2. The next day, the drive stopped working – couldn’t be recognized at all by any number of my computers, when plugged directly into the drive. I contacted WD buyer service, and spent two hours changing network and firewall settings to place them in the most open/least secure mode possible. At the end of the procedure the WD agent agreed that my device was faulty, however offered no more support to reverse the countless of changes made to my PC throughout the troubleshooting procedure. I elected to get an advance substitute for my faulty drive (WD will send a substitute, then you send the bad one back) so that I could exchange the hard drives out of the EX2 and kerecover my data. A week afterward, I received my substitute drive, only to find that it was a & 34;WD Mirror& 34; model and not the EX2 that I needed. Again a call to buyer service. The agent clarified that they did not have any EX2’s in stock, so they sent me something close. He then proceeded to tell me that if I wanted an real substitute, I could have to call the WD help line twice a week to learn if they had my model in stock. If they did have my model, they could then issue a new RMA for the wrong unit that was sent to me. I’m very irritated. I bought this drive to make my data management simpler and it was nothing but headaches for the last two weeks.
