WD My Book Live Duo 6TB Personal Cloud Storage

2 out of 5 eggs Slow and tough to work with 09/06/2013

This review is from: WD My Book Live Duo 6TB Personal Cloud Storage


It was cheapest when I bought it.


very slow, difficult to access, if you have multiple users. I know how to assign rights etc. in much higher level on real NAS and Windows but still couldn't figure out why one user can't access his folder from Win7 but was OK from XP or Mac OS. Ended up assigning the same user/pw as the admin to make it work... If you just want to use it as simple storage for backup and want redundancy of two drive, that's the only advantage I see...
