MyCloud Home VS My Cloud

Hi All, i am new here.

Thought to ask since I arleady have My Cloud and read about My Cloud home being better. Is it faster from networking prespective? Does it still have all the features that I had in My Cloud?


according the WD website “My Cloud™ Home is an easy-to-use personal cloud storage device that plugs directly into your Wi-Fi® router at home so you can save all your digital content in one central place. Unlike a NAS, it’s a simple centralized solution to back up your photos, videos and files, and have it stored in one place. With the My Cloud Home app, you can access, upload and share your content from anywhere with an internet connection.” I am beginning to think this is misleading. I have yet to figure out how to access files other than images and videos remotely. I’m not sure it’s possible. I think a clue is the phrase “unlike a NAS”. I wish someone could clarify this.

I read only through the shared link provided. It’s not like NAS as you said.

Another concern here when they state “Backup solution” What is the life span we are talking here? 5 years and then dead device and loss of all data?
