About Me Power user
Comments about Western Digital 3 TB My Book Live Home Network Drive:
I use it to backup all the home computers, since it is independent of a computer it is very easy to access and use. I also store my digital music and movies on it to stream anywhere in the house to pretty much any device including the HD big screen in the living room. I have had it about a month so far and I am very happy with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the personal cloud. No more Pandora or internet radio because I can't access the music files on my computer. With the app I can listen anywhere. Love streaming my movies, too!
