This review is from: WD My Book Live 1TB Personal Cloud Storage
It hooks to a network.
It has a 3 year warranty.
Built with linux based OS, that gives it 1 egg by itself.
Nice logs (ty to linux).
Heat. According to SMART log data the failed drive was HOT.
POOR response times from WD support.
Failed barely after 1 year.
Looking the log data over (I liked the log details, thank linux for that) it produced a lot of heat, it also had issues with sectors. All in all I feel the architecture in the controller was quite nice, but I was reminded why I had stayed AWAY from WD HDD's for the past 8 year.
They did NOT think about heat when designing this. I believe that I was likely given a HDD that was past it's shelf life, or a green drive. Either way this doesn't change the factor that I have had a lot of issues with WD HDD's, including the "enterprise" grade equipment. What happed WD???? You used to make great equipment back in the day?!
