TP-LINK Archer C5 AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5Ghz 867Mbps, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy install, works.

Cons: LAN connection with CAT6 is very slow. File transfer rate and remote sessions within LAN are slower than a 4 year old router from D-Link DIR 655. Wifi 2.4Ghz latency spikes, 5Ghz network is even slower.

Other Thoughts: should've bought something else

WD Green WD40EZRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks legit.

Cons: takes 10 secs every time for my system to recognize the disk. Couldn't be formated either to 2G or 4G. There is clicking sound irregularly.

Other Thoughts: tried: upgrading bios, re-installing os. enabling UEFI, converting to MBR or GPT, tried a variety of things with it. no luck at all.

Good thing is i am good at diskpart now.

WD My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage WDBCTL0030HWT-NESN

  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Cloud doesn't rain 11/30/2014

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

Pros: Plug n Play: It was auto-setup. had it powered on for less than a minute, it showed up on my network.(Win 7 & Mac both picked up really well)

Speed: Standard ethernet cable transfer rate (computer to computer by ethernet via router/switch). This may vary with your router/switch (or WiFi connectivity), so the numbers came out of my setup wouldn't necessarily be applicable to you.

User-experience: In case you don't bother to read the manual that it came with the package, you won't be stuck, it is pretty comprehensive already by looking at the UI itself.

Back up: There is a backup feature to back up this NAS, which sounds awesome, though I have not tried it. It can be done either thru the back USB3.0 Port or Anywhere on the network.

Cons: Security: The security side of this NAS is useless. (As long as he/she knows the IP address) Anyone in your network is able to remote in and mess with the system, which includes setting up username/password, enable/disable public access of certain folders.

Mobile Cloud: I did not set up my remote access of any local data. Reason is it must be done thru WD website, does WD audit your personal files? I don't know, but I guess is lack of privacy that way. =[

Time Machine / Restore Points: It is limited to work with Mac OS, so windows users will not get to use this extra cool feature. The latest firmware does not support windows restore/backup system.

Other Thoughts: I had it for only 2 hours, but I tried my best to interpret my so-far understanding of this device. What says above may contain inaccurate commentary, please forgive. After all, it is a simple NAS, does the main intention: storage. I wasn't expecting much, so give it a 4-egg rating.

For those of you who had it, how do i log into those private shares? What domain should I use? domain\username?
