This review is from: WD My Cloud EX4 Diskless: 4-Bay Personal Cloud Storage WDBWWD0000NBK-NESN
Pros: excellent build
Cons: does not work
Other Thoughts: Bought it at a local store. Could not get the installation working. Try on multiple computer.
Returned it and exchange for EX2. The latter works with no problem.
Was it faulty? I did not get any helpful support from wd at all.
This review is from: QNAP TS-212-E Diskless System Network Storage
Pros: Affordable; intuitive installation; tons of apps; excellent dashboard
A little bit on the noisy side
Other Thoughts: Not sure about reliability.
One out of three that I bought has a noisy fan (though not all the times).
I use WD 4TB hdds on one of mines. The hdds are a little thicker than the regular hdds. They touch the top cover. Since the case is made out of plastic, it is easy to fix.
Pros: Cost less than the other 2-bay nas enclosures
Cons: Really slow. Average less than 18 MB/s.
I have another Linkstation duo with my own 2x2TB hard drives in it. They both are 5,400 rpms hdds, and the average writing speed on this is 45~50MB/s. I am planning to backup/upload my ~10TB data to the nas, and it would take forever. I'd probably have to buy my own hdds instead of using the ones that comes with it. THEY ARE TOO SLOW.
