not that good. 01/15/2014
This review is from: WD 3TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0030HWT-NESN
The apps for android and ios are good for accessing pdfs outside. Accessing pdfs and documents aren't a problem.
This unit doesn't play movies all that well, it "lags" so much when I try to play videos. I' m on a gigabit home network too, not my router's fault because the is strong and I have a solid connection for streaming stuff from my pc. As others have said, this unit disconnects.Sometimes it reconnects after severly hours, other times I have to unplug it. Another problem is that sometimes it won't let me log in from my pc, eventhough I have logged out of other devices. I always update the apps on my devices and the unit's firmware but these problems persist.
I will avoid being an early adopter for things like this in the future. I don't recommend anyone get this because this isn't ready yet, but the idea of being able to access your stuff from pc, android, ios, mac and web outside your home is neat if someone could get it right.
It’s unfortunate to hear about these concerns with performance on your My Cloud drive within your network, and we apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced.
We recommend performing a reset of the My Cloud using System Restore only, then assigning a Static IP to the drive.

For wirelessly connected devices that access the My Cloud, consider connecting with an Ethernet cable and testing further.
If the above troubleshooting does not resolve the stated concerns, our My Cloud support team would like the opportunity to work with you directly to resolve the issues. We can collect logs from the drive and perform a network scan in an attempt to isolate the root cause of the issue.
