5 stars!...Good buy....(WD already had a firmware upgrade and it updated after my initial setup) I've been tearing apart PCs since 1990 so I guess I'm not a novice, but I was pleased overall with the automatic configuration except for the fact it defaulted to relay mode since router portion of my Mac Time Capsule does not do UPNP....Its really useful with my phone not having an SD card slot, I can still have all of my movies, music, and documents without having to worry about if I have enough space on my device.

Works well....Almost great...The device has worked flawlessly, if it had a setting so it would run 24x7 as apposed to giving a max 60 mins before it goes to sleep it would get a higher rating...although as cloud device it can use some improvement as remote features are a bit limited I would still recommend this device on storage capacity alone
