This review is from: WD 4TB My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage - Retail
Cons: I bought this to build a media file NAS for a family member, so I need it to be a simple, reliable, APPLIANCE. That's all. Unfortunately this thing doesn't last 5 minutes before crashing while playing a movie. It had ONE JOB. Serve media files over a Windows file share, and it can't even do that. Pathetic.
It drops off of the network randomly, and from searching Google, this is a COMMON problem for this thing, and no real resolution to be found.
I'm truly sorry I wasted my money on this piece of e-waste. Too late for a refund.. Maybe I can salvage the hard drive and put it on my Linux file server. The rest I shall consign to The Devil.
Sad to say, I actually LIKE WD hard drives, but this thing is just sad.
In case it isn't clear, I would NOT recommend this product. It's just not ready for "prime time" for the consumer usage for which it is intended. There is no way I'm going to handle the inevitable calls to fix things when this thing goes on the fritz every five minutes. Forget it.
