Solid Unit...I love it....good quality and storage for a low price...I liked that it allowed iTunes syncing of over 2,000 songs in my library and I could stream them anywhere from my mobile device....As a normal external hard drive / cloud it's great, but I bought it specifically for hosting a Plex server and it is not powerful enough on it's own....Its a nice way of storing without any cables, but it is very slow to transfer, especially big files (movies - videos) it takes forever and most of the time gives you a communication error.

Great drive...Worked great!!!...Good for the price....The Red series by Western Digital has been fantastic in my Media Server....Drive works well but it is NOT designed to be a desktop hard drive this drive is designed for NAS boxes....One day my NAS shows an alert saying one of my hard drive had bad sectors and needs to be replaced.

Good deal....I love it....Great for the price...Supports ssh (once you enable it) you can rsync - scp files to the box Private and Public shares available USB port on the device so you can add more storage (I have not used it yet) Cons: No linux client (there is a Mac and Windows client)....I bought the WD - My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage External Hard Drive last November, and upon initial use it was easy to setup and worked ok for a couple of days and then was unresponsive....Overall, I think WD did a pretty good job on designing a reasonably priced product that provides a lot of features that users looking for Network Attached Storage will appreciate.

Good HD...Love it!!...Awesom price, awesome product!!!...I had a My Book Live, which I loved, but wanted the ability to "SYNC" all of my files, pics, music, video, as well as everything I use for teaching that is stored on my micro-usb flash....Although I have used my drive very little at this point I have had issues with it not communicating with the router and just today the drive appeared to overheat even though it was not being accessed and with a complete open shelf with no obstructions; I hope the drive lasts....trusting how long it will work...as last external hard drive(Seagate) had problems in only slightly over two years ... can I revise this review if problems later... At this point seems to be working OK seems slightly faster than last ext.

Works fine...Pretty Good....Great price and product....The connection to Sdrive however it hit or miss - sometimes it is great, sometimes it just does not work at all and I can not see a single file....I would probably give this box a 5 star rating but since I have only used it for a single purpose, I can not comment on its other features including the USB port....A little difficult to set up, but that was mostly due to my own network complications, no fault of the Personal Cloud.

Great HD...Love it!...Great hard drive for great price!...Hard to evaluate for speed on my flaky Win7(64) system that locks up for up to a minute at times, but I did manage to get a 1.3GB/s write and 1 GB/s read out of it on a shorter test (drops to a tenth of that when I get a lockup/timeout)....I did this upgrade three months ago and everything has been rock solid ever since, which is really important since my clients tend to run everything at least 15 hours a day and at least 6 days a week....Included tools allowed for formating the new disk and partioning to take the exisiting data and partitions from the failing drive and move then to the new larger drive as the same size or increase the size.
