NETGEAR WNCE2001 Universal Wi-Fi Internet Adapter Wireless 802.11b/g/n Ethernet Port / Connect Wifi to LCD-TV, Game Console and Blu-ray Player
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very small size.
Can be powered by USB.
Easy setup using WPS or web browser.
Can be used to create a wireless switch.

Cons: Under periods of heavy usage it can run very warm.

Other Thoughts: I use this in my home office, which is in the attic 30 feet and 2 floors above the router, with floors and a wall impeding the signal. I connected this little device to a 4 port gigabit switch, creating a wireless switch. There are 2 desktop computers and a network multifunction printer connected to the switch. This device has never given me a minute of trouble, and it has run 24/7 for over 2 years in an attic whose temperature has exceeded 100 degrees many times in the summer months, and dropped below 35 degrees in winter months. I have it 2 feet away from any other electronics, sitting on a shoe box, so it has plenty of ventilation. Bandwidth is excellent, I have downloaded files from the internet at over 100mbs, and it does not bottleneck file transfers across the network. What is even more amazing to me is that the area I live in is saturated with wireless networks-at least 8, yet I detect no interference. All in all , an excellent product.

WD 3TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0030HWT-NESN
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs For good transfer speeds, you have to know what you are doing. 06/08/2014

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

Pros: Low Price for 3 Terabytes.
Attractive Design
Small Form Factor
USB port on back can be used with a hub to control up to 6 external drives for backup of main hard drive and/or storage expansion.

Cons: Transfer speeds are very, very slow using windows explorer to drag and drop. And it has nothing to do with my network, a 6 year old NAS made by Maxtor plugged into the same router is at least 4 times as fast as this Western Digital. Several other reviews report the same problem, so it is definitely a flaw of the drive. That being said, I am now teaching myself how to use FTP in hopes that I obtain the transfer speeds this drive is supposed to be capable of. Western Digital should be more forthcoming about this shortcoming in their product.

Other Thoughts: I have a USB 3.0 hub plugged into the back of this little NAS with 4 hard drives attached, quadrupling my storage capability for a low cost.

WD 2TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Attractive
Very Low Price
Small Form Factor
Runs Cool
USB-3 Port can be used with a hub to control up to 6 hard drives.
Remote access over internet.

Cons: Everything happens so slowly as to render the device useless.
Software is lacking necessary features.

Other Thoughts: I can't say it often enough, this NAS is between 5 and 10 times slower than the 6 year old Maxtor Shared Storage 2 it was supposed to replace. When I right clicked a folder and clicked on properties, it took 10 minutes for the drive to report there was 40GB of data. Click on a folder and wait 20 seconds for it to open. Transfer rates crawl along at 500KB/S on my gigabit network with all new routers, switches, and cabling. Since the device is technically 'working', can I even send it back? Bummer
