    WD EX2 Ultra reviews

    My Cloud EX2 Ultra 20TB 2-Bay Personal Cloud Storage Server (2 x 10TB) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I had an 8TB Cloud and now I'm using the 20TB. I've had the 8TB for 3 Years and it's still working fine, I'm expecting that this newer more spacious one will work just as good. Very Easy to set up and work with.
