4.0 out of 5 stars Be warned...worth a read before buying (updated) 1 April 2014
Size Name:4TB|Verified Purchase
Let's start by briefly explaining what this is supposed to do. Connect it to your router (via the supplied Ethernet cable), plug it in and access the WD Dashboard (either through the software you install from the WD site or through the Network folder on your Start menu). From there, you need to register for the WD MyCloud service - this enables you to view files (music, video, pictures etc) through the WD2go website or the WD apps.

Unfortunately, I kept getting error messages saying unable to register. This was due to two things - firstly, my router (BT Hub 4) needed changes to allow port forwarding and I'll get onto the second issue shortly. Now, I'm not techy in any way so took a long time to figure out how to do port forwarding (the WD forum has details on there). I'd have thought that if this device doesn't work with certain router settings, there would be clear instructions provided to resolve this. A quick start up guide is not useful, neither is a 142 page user manual considering this is advertised as a plug and play device. I eventually registered for the WD MyCloud service and received the confirmation e-mail. From there, I successfully transferred some video files from my computer HDD to the Video folder in the NAS. I could then view those files on my devices (iPad and iPhone) so all was well.

Unfortunately, this NAS is plagued with server issues at WD's end. Although you can transfer files to the NAS so it operates to a point, you cannot view these files in the WD MyCloud service unless it's working. There have been server issues at WD's end for about 2 weeks and no current details of when they will be resolved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works for Me 6 Mar 2014
By Sollux
Size Name:2TB|Verified Purchase
I was unsure about this device after reading some of the reviews, but the lower price attracted me to it. I was in the unfortunate situation where my old buffalo NAS had died and didn't have the cash to splash out on a synology 2 disk setup, so I needed a quick cheap replacement.Luckily I had a backup of all my data on an external drive. :-). I downloaded the latest updates for it, ran the installer and assigned it a fixed IP outside of my routers DCHP range. Set up two password protected users and a few shares. I have been using the WD for a few weeks now, loaded all my music(FLAC, WAV and MP3) and photos onto it and it is doing its job as expected. I've not had any problems streaming music (mp3s) to and downloading/viewing photos on iPhone/iPad using the WD app. I can use non WD apps like Tuneshell running on the iPhone/iPad to play the FLAC files, but this is a bit clunky as the WD only shows the filename string, and most of my track names are at the end of the filename.Apart from this little niggle, the only Issue I found was when I changed settings on my router. The changes I made required a reboot of the router at which point I had to power down the WD before it I could see it on the network post router reboot. This makes me suspect that when others have seen problems where it has dropped off their networks it could be an issue with their router rather than the WD itself. Anyway, So far so good for a cheap 2TB of cloud storage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best cloud HDD yet 9 Jan 2014
Size Name:2TB|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
First, a little explanation of what this device does and does not do.

This is not a USB Hard Drive. It has a USB connection, but this is only to plug in other drives to expand the storage.

WDs My Cloud does, however, contain a typical Hard Drive, mine comes with 2TB but you can buy it with different storage options. This is accessed via an ethernet cable to your router, then via WIFI from any device through that. Think of it as a fully wireless solution to storage.

Connecting up the device is easy, despite the terrible user guide, just plug in the included Ethernet cable to the router and then the power lead and it's all done. From here you'll need to set up the software side of things and this is where things can get a little more tricky.

The PC/Mac software is the easiest initial route as this makes it fairly easy to set all the options for access up. This software also guides you through the whole process and helps you understand how to set shares for people (basically, who can access what content). Shares are divided in to Public, which anyone logged in can see, and every other folder, which can have its own specific access for each user. It's really comprehensive in who can access what and I really loved this.

You can also access the settings on an iPad/iPhone through an app or on Android through the internet. I had a go at setting up the device again on an iPad and it works well, though not as easily as with a PC. The app is very straight forward, however, when it comes to accessing the device.

Previous internet (NAS) drives I've owned have been a fiddle to get working remotely and have been very slow in uploading and downloading data.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is very good 26 Oct 2013
Size Name:3TB
I bought the 2Tb package about a week ago. As a middle aged person with limited computer skills it took me a while to understand just how simple it is to install and create User, Shares and Cloud Access.

When you read the instructions they are laid out in separate boxes and it was difficult for me to understand how they relate to each other.

So please, if you are wanting a good product but may be a little doubtful about your ability to set it up, then once you have plugged in the box to the mains and your Internet router just follow these very simple rules .

From the glossy white page of setup instructions go to [...] as at point 2 then follow points 3 & 4.

You can create anybody as a User. If you want them to be able to access the system anywhere in the world on either a mac or PC or tablet, android, iPhone or iPad or I presume any other suitable device make sure you enter an e-mail address for the user.

You have now created your Users but that is only a list of people inside the system it has not created anything for you or them to view.

Now create Share. There will already be Public and SmartWare listed. As you create each user that persons name will also appear in the Shares list. A point to note is that it takes a few minutes to update the system showing the names in Shares so just because you created it does not mean it is necessarily there straight away.

I want to let far flung relatives see family pictures so I created a Share called Photos. By creating this as a share rather than Public I can control level of access by each user. My father in law would be likely to press the wrong button and delete the lot so he only has View access.
