Good for what it is intended for. 12/05/2013
This review is from: WD My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN
WD has set this up so that even someone who isn't very technical can set it up quickly. For example it registers itself as wdmycloud.local in DNS on your router so you can just punch that into your browser to get started setting up users and folders, etc.
DLNA worked right away. My Samsung TV was able to see the drive and playback high bitrate 1080p video.
Remote access works pretty well. You need to install a WD program on your Mac or PC to access the drive away from your local network. The program downloads the file and if you make changes syncs it back to the My Cloud at home. There is a free app for Android and IOS to access the drive as well.
Write speeds are around 25MB/sec for me and around 60MB/sec for read. Not too bad for a single spindle home NAS.
I would have liked to see some additional apps like Plex server, but for the price that might be asking for too much.
The included software makes it easy for non technical folks to map drives, etc. so that is a nice bonus.
