      Not a NAS!

      I bought this storage device to replace a similar type product from Seagate which only used a single internal drive. That drive had crashed and I lost my data so the ability for this product to use two drives in a raid format is extremely beneficial for data integrity. The other reason I purchased this drive was to be able to look at media while away from home on my cell phone and tablet. This product checks that box too. Where it falls flat on its face is if you have more than one person (say a family) who you would like all it's members to be able to store and share content with each other. You can have multiple users, but their content gets stored in separate locations that the drive admin can not even access!!!! There is also no public or shared space for users to share files with each other. Someone from the WD team has expressed on their forums that there is a "team working on this", but there has been no word on time frame of implementation of shared folders since it was announced by mddimmick on October 18th 2017. Until this is implemented I would not recommend this product.

      The MyCloud Home is great for local network storage. You can storage any file and search them via your file explorer (if using Windows). But as a Cloud storage it needs greater improvement. You can only search and transfer pictures or videos, no music or documents using the MyCloud app. You have to use PLEX which only allows 1 user unless you pay a monthly fee to stream music from the MyCloud Home. I tried to use it for over 1 month and didn't like the restrictions so I returned it to purchase a more unrestricted NAS.

      Easy setup, slow speeds

      Purchased this product thinking the newest generation would be faster than the previous MyCloud. The speeds are indeed slower, and the web apps seem to be taking a step back. Setup is easy, but performance is lacking.

      This device was very easy to install and use. It's solved a big problem for me by making my files available over the cloud.

      Easy to install and easy to use, lacking additional security
