2 out of 5 eggs Works but slow 01/22/2014

This review is from: WD My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage WDBCTL0030HWT-NESN

Pros:

*Large Capacity
*Wireless

Cons:

*Slow transfer speed
*Annoying interface
*Sometimes loses connection halfway through transfers

Other Thoughts:

I thought this would be a good pick up since it was a good price and I wanted a cloud to transfer files from computer to mobile and so on. The transfer speed is super slow though even with my 10Mb internet speed so it really makes it a pain to transfer multiple files in one sitting. though it's not all that bad, there are more cons to it than pros.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Frannypak,
We appreciate your feedback and apologize that your have experienced this inconvenience in working with the device on your network.
Please verify that your My Cloud drive has the latest firmware installed and running, as our latest update does address your stated concerns. The procedure for updating your device can be found at the following link.
“Product update for WD My Cloud”: http://www.wd.com/wdproducts/updates/?family=wdfmycloud_s

In an attempt to improve performance on your LAN, we have provided a link below that illustrates best practices when working with the My Cloud. Please keep in mind that regardless of your ISP download speed, performance on your LAN for interconnected devices is based on the type of networking equipment and interfaces being used on your router and computers. The My Cloud supports gigabit connectivity, and we recommend connecting your computer directly to your router via Ethernet to see if this resolves any performance concerns.
