A few weeks ago I bought a WDMyCloud 3T, and hooked it up to my Router. I was able to transfer data to it for about a week, mainly my iTunes music and movie libraries, and the performance wasn’t good, but it was acceptable.
Using a MacBook Pro, a CenturyLink DSL model/router/WiFi, and the WDMyCloud.
It’s now taking 3 hours to transfer 1.27 GB and it frequently fails halfway through a transfer of several movie files so I have to start over.
This device seems to get lost from time to time, so attempts to log in and find the device fail after timing out. I unplug it and wait a while and plug it back in and if I wait for about 30 minutes, I can again log in, but it will sleep again and be lost.
I use iNet on my Mac to see all my network devices, and I can see the WDMyCloud when I’m able to log in, but when I can no longer log in, it is gone from my network. Only after hard reboot will it show up in my LAN and I can log in again.
I hope WD is working on this flaky system. Theoretically, it could be great, but practically, it’s not worth the money. I will not recommend this product to anyone.
BTW, I also use iPad, iPhone, a network printer, a PC, a Surface Pro, and a Samsung Galaxy Express on my network and they all work perfectly. I’ve also swapped out the network cable to the MyCloud drive, an nothing makes this thing work right.
Researching firmware upgrades now, but it said it was updating it when I installed everything a couple weeks ago. Well, anything this buggy may have firmware upgrades hourly.
Nice try WD, but no cigar. I also posted an email support request two days ago, and no answer yet. They are probably very sorry they released this product before it was ready. Maybe these guys are working closely with the Obamacare website engineers and sharing their quality metrics and when it works for 1/2 the people, QA signs off for production release. LOL.
