4 out of 5 eggs A vast improvement over the my book world edition 12/13/2013

This review is from: WD My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN

Pros:

Fast, I am sustaining at least 44 MB/s when transefering large files and saturating between 25-50% of my GigE network card capacity.

The interface has a much better layout and is much more responsive than the old my book world edition.

The DLNA works and more responsive than the my book world edition.

The desktop app and status app for this drive is nice. I have yet to play with the andriod app but i am sure they will work out any bugs over time.

I was able to copy my 700GB of data on this drive in less than 24 hours. The my book world edition would take 4 times longer plus despite being replaced always crashed when copied large files (WD could not fix this issue) But that is not an issue for this new drive.

Cons:

Despite the great interface some stuff is still confusing like trying to access a non public share over the internet which can only be done but selecting a sub folder and emailing it to someone. I think the solution is everything needs to be in a folder with "public share" access.

Other Thoughts:

For a NAS that you cannot replace the drive in i think this one is tops and hard to beat.

I am using synctoy to backup to this drive but i think the drive is mature enough I should test out the smartware auto backup app WD provides for this device.
