Comments about WD 2TB My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage:

I purchase this mostly to storage my huge data of music and photos. I have this 66GB iPhoto library to transfer to the 2GB My cloud and so I did on the first day.But, mysteriously, it erased the original library, letting me with nothing but the copy. Now, it will take months to transfer that amount of data through the wireless connection, since you cannot hook it up through USB directly.The web interface is very, very slow! I know that probably it has something to do with the speed of my wifi modem but things are not too clear.They could have done a better interface. But after all, I think is good to do "over-the-air" backups like time machine, which i did flawlessly, and to storage little things like documents and stuff.

Comments about WD 2TB My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage:

We purchased this to archive off many years worth of photos from our laptop to a backup location.

The network interface is decent and the drive integrated right away with our network. Works well with Windows and on iphones and ipads via their app.

The media streaming from the drive to our Samsung TV worked great - seamlessly picked it up off our network and played videos recorded on my GoPro from the drive without any setup.

Content added to the device was automatically available on our iDevices. Have not tried sharing outside of our network through the WD software, but the iDevice app works well for this.

I recommend using the "network places" method outlined in the setup manual to maintain the date and time stamps of your photos. The drag and drop WD software currently does not (more can be found on the WD blog).
