      I have had this NAS for over a week and I absolutely love it. This is my first NAS and I did a lot of research before deciding on this latest product by WD. It didn't disappoint. It's an excellent value with 3TB network storage. Setup is extremely easy and now I can access all my files home or away with ease. I stream HD video at home with this little thing without any issues. The size is another plus. It's so compact and easy to place. I also like having the USB 3.0 port for any future expansion. For home use, this is your perfect NAS. My only suggestion is if WD can provide a black version because chances are, many people are like me and have their PC equipment in black.

      Purchased this unit to replace older WD NAS that failed. MyCloud has rather disappointing performance when compared to older WD NAS, and definitely not up-to-par compared to other NAS devices. Still, it worked OK until I updated its firmware to v04.00.00. It became incredibly slow and unresponsive to the point of being useless. From reading the WD forums it seems that this happened to everyone updating to v04, and there is no easy way of reverting to the older firmware. WD has not fixed the problem with a new release, so I am now faced with purchasing a different NAS and migrating,

                  My home network storage was distributed over 2 smaller NAS devices as well as 2 separate usb storage devices. The My Cloud 3 TB now centrally has all data from 2 Windows and 2 MacBook Pros and the other devices are used as back-up for the My Cloud. Set-up was very easy, download and install applets and away you go. I have some issues with WD My Cloud on one of my Windows 7 (32 bit) machines - icon appears on my desktop but when i open to use, none of the verbiage is visible. Not absolutely sure whether this is my machine or the application.

                      I use this for continuous backup of email, documents and other important files. Works as advertised, but you should have a gigabit router for fastest performance. Initial set-up is quick and easy. The supplied software works well, too, once you get the hang of it. Great (and safe!) alternative to web-based cloud storage.

                        This drive is very easy to set up and so far works perfectly. I'm using it to store pictures, music and a few files I want to share, as well as full backup of my main desktop PC. My PC connects to the home network and internet WiFi, while the drive is hard wired to the router. Of course the WiFi slows the connection down quite a bit, and the initial back up of approximately 175 GB took over 48 hours, however, it runs the backup nicely in the background and doesn't us a lot of resources while it's chugging away. I wish WD had included to ability to connect the drive via WiFi rather than requiring it to be plugged into the router. I realize the wired connection is faster, but if you're getting to the drive via WiFi anyway, that is negated. Having WiFi built into the drive as an optional connection would allow for better location (at least in my case where now it sits in my den next to the DVR box.) Still a great product and a good price point and I'd buy it again.
