Hi Thinking About Buying One Thease Just Few Qestions
WD 4TB My Cloud Personal Cloud Storage
What a want to use it for is to stream movies to me intel i3 nuc use xbmc
what want to no is me movies are blu ray remux so the mkv file are 30 to 35 GB
in size there will be no transcoding since am use the intel nuc and xbmc can this be done with
out stutterning and pausing on the 4TB My Cloud ??
And one more question what sort hard drive is in thease is it the RED WD ones or Green WD Ones ??
Welcome to the Community.
Direct playback from a local network share should not be an issue as long as the router is not a bottleneck.
Hi thanks for quick reply
the rooter is RT-N56U - ASUS
and what hard drive in thease
I have not opened mine but it has been mentiond as being a red drive a number of times so I assume it is correct
Ok thanks larry … could u give me bit more info about this drive like is the interface slow and sluggish … will have no problem play 30 or 40 gb files across gigbit network … and could extend the storage by pug another 4tb in to back off the usb 3 port to make 8tb
the actual configuration UI is slow but is only configuration changes so not a big deal
general performance seems go to me. I typically see 40-80MBps transfers on Gb LAN
I don’t have a USB drive attached but it appears to be one of the more problematic areas. I would disconnect the drive before any major operation like FW upgrade or restore then only add it back after it is stable again and it will probably be ok
