This review is from: WD 3TB My Cloud Personal Network Attached Storage - NAS - WDBCTL0030HWT-NESN
Pros: Looks nice.
Cons: I begin by stating that I am a programmer and an absolutely shocked that WD would release the 3T MyCloud product with the software it currently uses. The developers should be fired.I attached it to my Dell PC and Macintosh LAN and before using it I updated its firmware. It took FOUR DAYS (4) to copy less than 500 gigs to the appliance. I was mad; but, it copied so gave it another chance by trying to copy a USB drive connected to a MacbookPro. After FIVE (5) DAYS the activity light was sitll blinking and the CPU usage continued to make the Macintosh unusable. I rebooted everything to find I could no longer connect to the device. I tried using a paper-clip to reset the unit and still was able to connect to it. I couldn't even scrub the MyCloud of the data copied to it before returning it. THIS IS A NOT-READY-FOR-PRIME-TIME PRODUCT!!!
Other Thoughts: Reading another users bad experience, I called WD Technical Support during the afternoon before returning the WD MyCloud 3T. The person I spoke to seemed to be reading from a script and may have just as well been speaking in another language. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! WD . . . I want the TWO (2) WEEKS of my life back!!! And that's what I am going to tell Saint Peter (at the gates of heaven) when I die. I WANT MY TWO WEEKS BACK!!!READ FULL REVIEW
