    Liking this item a lot. Access to files from anywhere is cool. The WD Cloud App is awesome. Set up was relatively easy but I could have definately benefited from having a pro help with set-up and configuration.

    Takes a bit to get it all set up & running -- slow to back up over WiFI but relatively fast using LAN connection. Doesn't play well with Sony XBR65x850D, but I think it's more of a problem with the TV then the NAS. Videos that the TV will play from a flash drive, the TV says aren't a reconizable format when I try to play them from the NAS.

    I purchased based on my son's recommendation. He used the default Raid 1 setup to backup and to archive my files. Initial setup seemed easy. I can access it with my Tablets & phones using The WD app. I only keep photos and music on the cloud. So far, so good with it. It got good reviews, and I agree.

    This is a great way to add another layer of backing up to protect my data. I have lost significant amounts of data in the past and this can be a very painful process to recover from. I love the online backup and the RAID mirroring setup of this device!

    The unit I picked up did not work. The built-in NIC did not grab an IP address from my router even though lights were flashing. USB connectivity works fine but I needed it to be on the network so I returned it.

    Best with T10/100/1000 LAN connections -- gets slow transferring using WiFi connection. Not the fault of the My Cloud.
