5 out of 5 eggsGreat Software, Very Easy setup.

This review is from: WD My Cloud EX2 Diskless Personal Cloud Storage - NAS (WDBVKW0000NCH-NESN)

Pros: This Diskless NAS system is one of the best I have ever delt with. I have setup 2 so far, and have not had any issues with the hardware or software. It is extremely easy to setup and configure, and all the cloud access apps and desktop software work great. It built in security, and ability to have multiple users without full admin access in the software.

Cons: no web browser data access. Has to be done from a phone/tablet or Windows/OSX computer.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had a longer eathernet cable in the box only 2 feet, but the power cable is pretty lengthy.

2 out of 5 eggsNot terrible

This review is from: WD My Cloud EX2 Diskless Personal Cloud Storage - NAS (WDBVKW0000NCH-NESN)

Pros: 1. Cheap
2. Small device
3. Easy to install HD's
4. Fairly intuitive GUI
5. Can backup to Cloud using Amzn S3 or ElephantDrive.

Cons: 1. Lackluster network performance
2. Quick setup instructions didn't quite jive with what the drive does during setup.
2. Something is taking up about 300GB of space on the device.....It's 900+ GB with two 1TB RAID1 drives installed and I only have little over 200GB of data on it, but it only shows a little over 500GB free. Tech support didn't respond to my request.
2. Almost non-existent tech support (my last two support requests were never acknowledged)
3. Couldn't get Amzn S3 backup to work right. It would never finish a backup. And since tech support is non-existent, I gave up. I'll figure out something else. Oh, and ElephantDrive is too expensive.

Other Thoughts: It's performing it's primary job of acting as a file server for my home network just fine.
I doubt I'll ever use any of the streaming functions.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Erik,
Thank you for providing us with follow up to your concerns in this review of the My Cloud EX2 device.
If you are experiencing slower than expected performance with your My Cloud, we have provided a link below on ways to optimize and improve the unit’s functionality within your LAN.
“When transferring large files to or from a Personal Cloud drive, performance may be slower than expected”: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5736

The My Cloud device will only store data that you place on it manually or if you have an automatic transfer being done by software. Should you be running automatic backups with the provided SmartWare software or Mac’s Time Machine, there is the chance that the data is being moved and stored automatically in one of these shares by default without your action. You can login to the Dashboard and view the individual shares to see how much space is being used for each share and verify where the data is possibly being stored.
“How to access the Dashboard on a WD My Cloud, WD My Cloud Mirror, EX2, or EX4 Personal Cloud drive”: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10420

While we do apologize for the inconvenience you are currently experiencing with your device, we have been able to identify your case in our support system and forwarded the information to our support for further assistance.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic enclosure

This review is from: WD My Cloud EX2 Diskless Personal Cloud Storage - NAS (WDBVKW0000NCH-NESN)

Pros: NFS, iSCSI targeting, Virtual drives. You name it, it has it. The interface is super easy to work with and is far less clunky then it's predecessor (My Book World Edition II). All around great NAS!

Cons: Relatively few amount of hard drives in the HCL but it has Plenty of WDs and Seagate HDs so i was plenty happy.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't get WD disks for this enclosure. The NAS itself is great but you can get more space for less with a better track record if you go with HDs other than WD. I personally used the Seagate 3TB HDs (ST3000DM001).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat and easy setup

This review is from: WD My Cloud EX2 Diskless Personal Cloud Storage - NAS (WDBVKW0000NCH-NESN)

Pros: Very easy setup, web interface is very easy to use. Runs nicely and fast.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The setup is very easy. It is preconfigured with RAID 1, so you can change your configuration to RAID 0 if you desire the space and speed over the redundancy.
