WD 2TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN
  • Back up files from all your computers
  • Upload, access and save photos and videos from your mobile devices
  • Stream to your DLNA/UPnP-certified connected TVs, media players and gaming consoles

Pros:

Lots of software and WD help.
Great for Docs and pictures.

Cons:

If you don't have a Gigabit Ethernet card it is DEADLY slow. I got around 8Mbps on a hardline, slower than my USB2 Canvio. As a gamer with limited space due to SSD's this drive doesn't cut it with it's speeds, taking over an hour to move a 25GB game.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Robbie,
We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback related to your experience with the My Cloud NAS. As a standard practice when trying to achieve the best possible performance from networking equipment, it is advisable to utilize CAT 5e/6 Ethernet cabling along with Gigabit supported interfaces; be it your router, computer, or other connected devices like a NAS. When connecting devices supported with a slower physical data link, the performance you will achieve will only be as fast as your slowest connected device, such as 10/100 Ethernet or wireless connections. Connecting a USB 3.0 hard drive to a USB 2.0 card/port connection directly to a computer will also see these types of results, as the slowest connection in this scenario would be 2.0, and you would only see USB 2.0 capable speeds.
A USB connected device may still potentially provide faster speeds for data transfer, due to the fact that there is not an extra physical layer between your router and a NAS drive for the data to move across.

If there is any further technical assistance or feedback our My Cloud support team can provide you with, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone at the below link, and mention this Newegg review.
