    WD WDBCTL0080HWT-NESN reviews

    8TB My Cloud Personal Cloud NAS Storage is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy! So I'm sorry B&H I'm a very loyal customer but I did buy this somewhere else. I got it for the same price but just didn't want to wait for the delivery or drive into Manhattan. As far as the drive goes, so far so good. The install and setup took me 5 min! It's very simple and easy. I am using this with a iMac with the latest iOS. Upload from the computer that's hooked up on the same network was very fast. I also uploaded pictures from my laptop from another part of town and the upload speed was fast also (over wifi).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than the older drives It appears to have a faster process or than the older 4TB model that I had. In the old version, the web based user interface was so sluggish when copying files. Even when using their wdmycloud app to show videos and photos, it was slow to bring up a list of files. Much faster now. Decent transfer speeds on gigabit ethernet. Larger files, you get about half of the theoretical speed. Much better email alerts. One problem I noticed was there is no shutdown option like in the older version. One thing I don't like is they changed the password requirements compared to the old version. In the older version they used to allow pretty much any characters to be used for passwords. Now you can't use any special symbols, besides lettters and numbers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bamg for your buck As a owner of many WD drives over the years I have come to appreciate the amount of storage you realy need on hand not to mention off-site as well. I utilize Carbonite in addition to the WD drives to insure I always have a current system backups. I never thought I would be able to have a 8TB drive for onsite storage but thanks to the folks at BH Photo this was an outstanding bargin to good to pass up. WD has been around tor many years and I have never experienced any difficulties with their devices. Tech support has always been accessible as well should your needs arise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, could get better. I was surprised to see how compact this NAS device was, given it is 8TB. Was a bit of a juggle to get the device identified through the mycloud.com portal, bit of switching off and on couple of times worked. And after that everything works awesome, just login to your portal upload the stuff, and the great thing is if you are in the same network (using same modem, wifi) the upload speed is about 80MBPS. You can share your folders with anybody just like you would do in dropbox and also you can give access to others to upload their stuff onto your device from anywhere in the world. The only cribbing point is, the mycloud portal could have had interactive support like in dropbox where others could leave comments or rate your pictures/videos etc. WD if you are seeing this, please add that feature.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good dependable storage The installation was simple. The included software gives you different options to access your data, either directly through the WD programs or through network mapping and shortcuts. This is my third WD NAS, and I have not had any problems with any of them. The only complaint would be performance can be very slow. I have it hard wired to the network and my main computer is hard wired also and data transfer is still very slow. Sometimes it evens stops completely for a few seconds at a time. This also occurs even when moving files around within the drive itself. I do not have any experience with any brands other than WD so I do not know if this is a WD issue or just a general NAS issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of mind Very good product overall. I like the USB port to connect external HDs and transfer data faster. The computer software installs a folder in your computer which connects directly to the NAS, similar to dropbox. Highly recommend it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you have a Mac I hope it goes easier for you. Could not get this to work or sync with my iMac even after help from WD tech support. WD said it was defective, so I returned for a replacement. Could not get that to work either. Had to return for refund. Installation was a nightmare. Nothing happened the way installation instructions said. B&H are the best for standing behind what the sell. GREAT company!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It needs dramatic improvement before I purchase it again. It is not very comprehensive yet. The set up take time and it is well when one, not multiple people use it from different computers. Great idea, but it is too early in development.
