OK WD please don’t block/silence me again. I
ll start with the positives Ive found.
- Very fast for me via Asus RT-AC68U. Using public folder I`m getting 112MB/s (896mbps). Super.
- Super quiet. Cannot even hear it even at full blast.
- That’s it.
Other than that as a NAS it’s about as useful as Ann Frank’s drum kit.
"This isn’t NAS storage, this requires constant connection to the internet in order to manage your files and access your data.
There is no direct access to the management interface on the device, it has no management interface, everything is managed via an online service that WD hosts.
There are no shares on this device it cannot be used by anything that cannot run WD’s app so if you want to access files from a Linux box or your TV well tough luck…
If you don’t have internet you can’t access your data.
If WD decides to shutdown the service you can’t access your data.
If WD decides that it doesn’t like you for some reason you can’t access your data.
WD can access your data at any time, if you block the device from communicating with WD’s servers you can’t access your data.
The device communicates also with 3rd party servers which do not belong to WD some hosted in India and China.
This isn’t a storage server this is WD hosting their version of Google Drive at your expense with all the liabilities that come with it."
