      We purchased the My Cloud Storage drive for our business. Due to the physical location of where the drive will be kept, it had to be setup by a not-so-tech-savvy employee. I am happy to report that it was very EASY for him to setup. We use both PC and MAC in our business. I had difficulty accessing the drive remotely from my MAC at first through the wd2go.com website (Java issues), but was able to download the "WD My Cloud Desktop for MAC" so that I have direct access to the drive from my Desktop - all remote connectivity issues resolved! Because our business has multiple locations it was very important to have a drive that can be accessed remotely. This drive has performed tremendously well. We are very pleased!

      I would probably give this product 5 Stars, if it came with real instructions or WD had real product support. I have automated email from them that sounds great "Your Complimentary WD SmartWare Pro Activation Code." However, there is no information on what the code is for or where it goes and "support" will not reply. There are other strange auto things in the setup, but they work. Files ("shares") are easy to reach both by WiFi and internet. However, there is no indication of security - who can look at your files. My Cloud is setup to connect to Drop Box, but with the limited information, it might be wise to use Drop Box as an independent (semi-)public cloud and tell no one you have a WD MyCloud, Or at least do not give them access information. One very strange thing is the USB port. You can use it to transfer files - don't -- things must go to your computer and back, it is half as fast as a USB 2 on your computer. Otherwise, speed is a function of your ip, LAN or WiFi. I would NOT recommend this to anyone with limited computer-intuition.

      Comments about WD 4TB My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage:

      I purchased this WD My Cloud for the following purposes.

      1. Macbook / iMac TimeMachine
      2. pictures / video clips / docs sharing within house and from outside
      3. Backup data
      4. Connecting extra USB HDD to WD

      Great :
      In the beginning, I was worrying about TimeMachine function if it works perfectly. Yes my concern was clearly lifted. And even WD My Cloud works perfectly with 2 Mac devices' TimeMachine.

      Not Great :
      Within my network (where 1080P HD Youtube is easily watched),
      it takes some time for me to open Video files / pictures with more
      than 10MB size. I'm using Asus AC68U which is one of the latest Router in there market.

            I bought this to have the ability to automatically backup data on PC, ipad iphone. The PC does not automatically update despite constant network connection. iphone and ipad do not backup automatically so the hard drive does not function as a cloud. Perhaps there are some complicated settings that can be tweaked but I am not IT proficient in any way. I need a device that is as simlple to use as this product purports to be. It is not. Very disappointed with this purchase

                I read many reviews but never believed till I got one this month.

                  We use this to backup our home computer and make files accessible from anywhere. Easy to use interface and simple to setup. My only negative is the lack of more versions for backup files. My previous backup solution allowed me to keep a daily version for up to 30 days (customizable) and then a weekly version (again, customizable) for up to an additional 25 weeks.

                    This product is really a great way to store files on your own network without having to depend on another company's size limitations.

                    Setup was extremely easy, their website has great demo's of how to setup and use the mycloud. it works great with my android devices. easy access to my files from anywhere.

                    i'm very satisfied with this product and highly suggest buying one

                    Great for Backups

                    Great so far. I use it primarily for multiple computer backups. It handles it cleanly and simply and quickly in the background. And I can access all my backed up files on my iPad, which makes that a much more robust tool.

                    Set up is pretty easy if you go their learning center (you need to go there to download the backup software for windows). Much faster than actual cloud backup, which I also do - belt and suspenders type.

                    Also starting to load my music on there to use as an iTunes server. Seems to work well. But main purpose is heavy backup work and am very happy with that.

                      I have to say it's pretty simple to set-up, but wish it had come with an instruction booklet. I had to figure some things about on my own (such as where the iTunes Library and how to import my photos from iPhoto on to the device). I love having access to everything on my computer from where ever I am. I am a big photo buff and having access to my entire library is awesome.

                          I connected this to my home network, and loaded all my digital movies onto the drive. The drive had very fast transfer speeds. On my network files transferred at about 30 megabytes/sec. Access is easy and both from home or work and the cloud drive includes a media server for streaming my movies to my TV. I couldn't be happier.
