4 out of 5 stars   It Works As Indicated
By Carl (Lompoc, CA) July 14, 2015
Review submitted for Western Digital My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage (WDBCTL0030HWT)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: Pretty easy setup. Works better using computer wired to the router as the instructions suggest in order to move a huge amount of data quickly.
Cons: The installation program creates a desktop shortcut with browser address of http://192.168.2.101/ but when I tried to access the drive a couple days later I had to change the address to end with 103. The next day I had to change it back to 101 and it has been fine ever since.
Other Comments: Disappointed I can't do a network backup with Windows 7 but that's a Microsoft issue. Backup not supported in my Home Premium edition.

4 out of 5 stars   Excellent Media Server, and fast transfers for moving normal files
By Wilt (Suffolk, VA) June 10, 2015
Review submitted for Western Digital My Cloud 4TB Personal Cloud Storage (WDBCTL0040HWT)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: Fast for normal file transfers, and backup. Easy to add new folders or shares, and setup was smooth with web site instructions. Works well with with 4tb WD elements hard drive.
Cons: If you plan on shutting down each day, the shut down process is slow, and requires logging in thru the web. Initial massive file transfer of media over 2tb is extremely slow. Need a better way.

5 out of 5 stars   Great
By Ilbdamed (Williamsburg, VA) September 23, 2014
Review submitted for Western Digital My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage (WDBCTL0020HWT)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: the drive lets put files where my family can access them and I can access the family's. I really don't have to mess with a "Network" per say. How cheap is it ? Well start adding Gigs on Icloud and see what you would pay per month. The cost of my Western Digital My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage is/was so much cheaper in cost. I just love it!
Cons: Maybe someone letting their password out but then only their files would e harmed.

Pros: It's fairly easy to set-up. Moving files from laptop to My Cloud was easy. WD Concierge service was wonderful.
Cons: Wifi is not the fastest method to transfer large files or do a complete backup. You need to review your options for direct connection.

2 out of 5 stars   Too slow to stream bluray files on local network
April 16, 2014
Review submitted for Western Digital My Cloud 4TB Personal Cloud Storage (WDBCTL0040HWT)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: large capacity for the price
Cons: Ok for low-bandwith uses, but cannot stream large video files on local net. Ok for music and jpegs. I'm guessing the cloud uses are even more limited.

4 out of 5 stars   Excellent NAS device for personal use
By Dwight (Athens, GA) April 13, 2014
Review submitted for Western Digital My Cloud 3TB Personal Cloud Storage (WDBCTL0030HWT)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Inexpensive Easy setup Great for backups on home network Allows remote access to files from mobile devices
Cons: Though setup is easy, options can be confusing.
Other Comments: I love this storage device. My one real criticism: For security purposes, I would like to make some folders accessible from my home network (e.g., for backup of personal data), but not from the web. However, this does not seem to be an option.

4 out of 5 stars   Good for what it does
By Paul A 73 (Boston) January 05, 2014
Review submitted for Western Digital My Cloud 4TB Personal Cloud Storage (WDBCTL0040HWT)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: Simple device, it is not a raid 5 NAS but it has 2 major positive qualities - it is inexpensive and it stores data relatively fast, 30-35 mb/sec on large files, 5-7 mb/sec for many small files, just like any other linux box with Samba would work. It offers access via internet from your ipad to this storage, works fine for small files. Streaming server does not do any transcoding but does not choke on my big library of music and photos, 57000 items or so - so it is good enough. For home purposes it is great. Major cons i can tell about - you cannot setup it to backup only selected shares, so it wants same size USB drive for complete backup if you going to use entire drive. Large files IMHO get 'cashed' by web proxy when you try to download them remotely so efficiently if you want to stream your 800mb movie from hotel you just end up looking at 'pending' request in your ipad app forever with nothing happening. But as a home remote storage it works fine.
