Pros I just bought 4tb WD world edition drive. I had high hopes for it at first.
Cons Worked flawless for few weeks, and then starting to dissappear from my network. Restart after restart, got slower and slower. Now it won't even work. It was waste of a lot of money and time. I am now a Lacie owner and everything if working wonderful.
Summary I would say, don't waste your time and money on this piece of garbage.
"Very Bad Choice!"on by cnyamail
Pros Case color and design is ok, the light movement is very nice, especially at night...
Cons Very slow. Bad data transfer. Bad connectivity.
Summary Bad transfer, bad connectivity, bad data access... Ok, I accept that.
But today i lose 1.5Tb of information with photography.
(I'm a professional photographer).
This is the worst thing! I can't accept that.
(This is de second bad experience with WD MyBook)
Pros Super quite
Easy to setup for novice user
2 hard drives, if one dies, your information is safe on the other drive
Easy to use on a local network at home
Cons Can't get to remote access this device from work or anywhere else. Mionet software is horrible. Crashed my win 7 64 bit while using itunes.
Summary Most recommended if you do not care about remote accessing your files over the WEB
Pros Enables you to transfer files from computer to computer and other devices, media streaming of all types also works well with this device. Mac and PC no problem with this device.
Cons Transferring large files for example a 67 GB folder can up 9 hours to transfer to the device depending on the amount of files within the folder, this my only complaint so far.
Summary All in all a great device can be a bit slow at times. But I would recommend it to anyone who just wants a central storage point for there files and media.
Pros none, well, I think you can use it as a paper weigh.
Cons Piece of crap! It worked for a couple of weeks and then the thing froze/stall. No way I could reset it. Crap support: I e-mailed WD and they returned my e-mail with useless links... . I can use it as a weapon, to throw at someone...
Summary DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME.
