Recent reviews:

I have to admit I had some serious reservations buying this NAS established upon the sheer number of bad reviews. I read through them and there seemed to be a common thread to some number of of the problems. 1. Changes IP address2. Loses connection / goes to sleep3. To SlowKnowing, I hoped :-), what I was to get into. I bought the NAS. 1st let me say the NAS is dead calm and this is good because it sits 2 feet away from me When I read the IP address was changing I figured it was a DHCP issue. It could seem right to allocate a static IP to the NAS, but Western Digital chose not to do that so.. Throughout the initial setup the 1st screen tells you what the assigned IP is – WRITE IT DOWN – after you get through the setup and before you attempt and access the NAS you’re going to need some pieces of information. 1. The IP address for the NAS (for me it was (192. 168. 1. 60)2. Subnet information 255. 255. 255. 03. Gateway information 192. 168. 1. 14. DNS information (whatever your ISP DNS numbers are)Now log into the NAS and look at the upper right of the screen, it should say “settings” with a gear symbol, click it. Now look for the tab that says “Network” and click on it. Change from DHCP to STATIC and fill in the blanks with the information you collected earlier and you are done, now the NAS will not lose its IP address. (IMPORTANT) The new NAS IP make sure to decide an IP address that’s above or below your pool of DHCP IP addresses to avoid conflicts Loses connection is what I think may be the NAS going into sleep mode.. Sleep mode seemed counterintuitive to me for a NAS.

UPDATE with benchmarks is at the bottom of the review:Western Digital has put together a nice network attached storage (NAS) device with the My Cloud. It was easy to set up for both local and remote access. Some things to know up front:1. This device can not be plugged into a computer for use. 2. It needs a hard wired ethernet connection – it can not connect to your network wirelessly. The My Cloud most likely has one of the best web-established configuration interfaces I have seen. In fact it is possible on most home routers to find the device just by pointing a browser at wdmycloud. Local – you do not have to dig around in your router settings to find its IP address. Once in it is easy to configure folders and users. Also of note is that the Macs, Windows PCs, and smart TVs in the house could now find and access the drive through their native interfaces. If you do not plan on using the drive remotely there’s totally no software installation needed. I don’t recommend installing the configuration software Western Digital will propose you use as it’ll stay inhabitant on your computer and just links to the web established control panel anyhow. The drive offers the capability to restrict access by user, as well as hiding folders from those who don’t have access and assigning read only access to certain users. The drive effectively streamed content I first recorded on my iPhone to a Samsung TV. The TV is DLNA well-matched and was able to find the My Cloud drive on the network automatically. It popped up in my source list when I pressed the remote control button – a nice surprise.

I bought this drive as early as I read about it online. After WD fumbled with the ordering I received the WD My Cloud 2TB and set it up. 1st off, it isn’t as easy as the literature conveys but there are some things you may be able to do that will assist and some considerations you may want to take into account before you buy. 1) Install the the friend app WD SmartWare that come with the drive. This will let you to map the “shares” (folders) to your computer and interact with your files like you were used to. 2) Yes, the standard program that installs requires you to “drag and drop” your files into the cloud storage but, remember that this is another level of security. Again, mapping the most used folders (or “shares”) will make things much easier. 3) be sure you install this to your internet through a gigabit router (or switch). This will improve your speed and prevent bottlenecks. If you have a recent model of a wifi router it’s probably that it’ll support fast transfers (check the owner’s manual). I have used the smartphone and tablet apps that are free and I haven’t had any issues. I have also used the software on a PC and a Mac without problems. The unit looks responsive and (so far) dependable. I had a 1TB My Passport lying around and I plugged it into the back of the My Cloud and it was now found. The manual indicates that with a powered external USB hub you may be able to attach up to 7 USB storage devices. In spite of the few extra steps required to install friend software, the device is enjoyable and responsive. I like knowing where my files are and having access to them with many different devices.
