    Derrick, South Africa. 21 March 2014

    Does what it says it does. I would just recommend to make sure you use CAT6 cable, and 1Gbps network setup. the DNLA works great but obviously file formats will depend on what's decoding it and if it supports it. I'm happy with my purchase. and after mapping a network drive things work great, and never use the web interface to transfer files. really slow that way.

    Arno, South Africa. 23 October 2014

    This is my best buy for 2014.
    Easy setup & good performance. I am connecting 3 tv's at once and all of them have smooth content playback.

    Zuko, South Africa. 11 April 2014

    Very good product, definitely worth buying. Its better than paying out a monthly fee for a cloud service. #loving it

    Shawn, South Africa. 14 April 2014

    Good started NAS for the home. Relatively simple to setup. Streams HD to TV perfectly through N-standard router.

    Jaco, South Africa. 16 April 2014

    EXCELLENT 97MB/s read - 69MB/s write - on my home network

    Alfred, South Africa. 23 April 2014

    Bit on the slow side when copying data whether using USB3 or a network cable.
    Otherwise ok.

    Johnson, South Africa. 3 June 2014

    Good value for money, must have 1Gbps connection, otherwise you will be sitting with a maximum of 100mbps ~ 12 MB/s (about 10MB/s actually) transfer rate...

    NFS and Samba work well!

    Liane, South Africa. 6 June 2014

    The product is great, although it did not have a cable to connect to computer - so that was an additional purchase.

    Jacobus, South Africa. 30 June 2014

    Works well on the network for streaming Audio and Video. Download and upload speeds are slow. Would be nice if you could copy from or to the USB port. Overall a brilliant device.

    Irvine, South Africa. 7 July 2014

    This is a great product…easy to set up and use. It gives comfort that ones data is nearby and not in a cloud somewhere.

    Andre, South Africa. 7 July 2014

    Good product, looks the business and quiet. Only in my 2nd week now of owning it and so far ok. I have set it up with my MacBook but struggled as software did not work first time. Had to repeat installations and software downloads a few times. Also, it does not allow you to use the mobile sharing and uploading without connecting it to the internet, and creating an account. My usage is purely at home, so was annoying to get it all working. Didn't want to connect the internet connection to the router. Also the Android Apps are slow, outdated and don't allow you to do much. You cant create your own folders to backup or upload, so you will have to do work after the uploads. So far streaming to devices like my smart LG TV are good, no issues there. Think for the price its good value and good enough for what I need now. Only time will tell if I will have any more issues, especially should I try and make use of all the other features of the device when travelling.

    Lance, South Africa. 4 November 2014

    Simple to install, easy to use. Great support from manufacturer and YouTube for installation and use. More secure alternative to other cloud based data storage locations.

    Thaheer, South Africa. 3 December 2014

    Product works great. The cloud interface is a bit confusing and you have to download the software to use it. They could have included the setup files on the hard drive. Not using cat 6 cables at the mo, so transfers are a bit slow, otherwise it works just fine. Use Windows to transfer files. 1080p video files stream easily with zero lag. I recommend it :)

    Mark, South Africa. 5 December 2014

    Great little device this - is small and easy to setup - barring you have to correct network setup (make sure you have a gigabit network switch for best performance).

    Ryan, South Africa. 7 April 2015

    The Drive is working well, with the latest firmware i am having issues with copying large sums of data from an attaching external drive.
    Second issue is playing music using the itunes feature doesn't work.
    I am hoping that these issues should be fixed by WD in an update to the firmware.

    Copying large amounts of data over the network works well.

    Speed on none gigabit connections is faster than i expected.

    PS3 streaming worked well.

    Helgard, South Africa. 17 May 2016

    This is by far the best product Ive bought in 2015. Works like a charm, and quick delivery from Takealot, very very satisfied

    does the job, well., South Africa. 18 May 2016

    very nice product for the home. super convenient if set up properly.

    Jared, South Africa. 20 July 2016

    Happy with the drive. Averages 80MBps on large file transfers. peaks at 92MBps in my network setup. Very responsive and a great entry level NAS for the home. Has reduced my storage frustrations considerably. Additional features are nice, e.g. user access control for multiple users, accessing from Internet as a personal cloud, streaming videos, etc.

    I would buy it again.

    Julian, South Africa. 3 August 2016

    Easy setup, beats everything else I've tried for NAS, DLNA with the added bonus of bringing with iTunes and Time Machine integration. Combined with my new gigabit network it is actually a bit faster than my local drive. Very simple to configure and the only downside is that it doesn't allow any other extensions (torrent, etc, etc) like the more "business" my-cloud offerings but that is not a supposed feature.

    Jared, South Africa. 31 August 2016

    Had this a few months now and works well. Visually appealing and compact. Set this up on a 1GB network with CAT 6 cables, not too worried about transfer speeds as I use it to store automatic backup images of all my drives and those of my partner's laptop on the network once a week in the middle of the night while we're asleep. Set up an online account as per the easy instructions provided in the manual, and it's now mapped as a network drive with no software installation necessary. Haven't played around with the other options or software yet. The unit comes with a short CAT6 cable.

    Nishol, South Africa. 5 September 2016

    Great Product does exactly what it says it does

    tony, South Africa. 17 October 2016

    Easy to set up, works as advertised and should have done this sooner with my 4 PC's makes backing up and file sharing a breeze including all Ipads and phones.

    Paul, South Africa. 15 February 2016

    Great device, although the setup is a bit tricky. Same setup file seems to have different installation results when trying to access the device?! on some it creates a network location to access it directly and on others it wants to make me create a MyCloud account to access the device. When connected to the switch it has very good throughput so I cannot complain there. So the only gripe is with the actual Western Digital software...still struggling to get movie streaming working to my TV through the switch.

    Was a bargain at the price take-a-lot sold it compared to retail outlets! Even the smaller ones (2TB and 3TB) is a steal on Take-a-lot!

    Charles, South Africa. 4 March 2016

    Seamless installation and easy backups and file copying makes this a great addition to the home network.

    Malcolm, South Africa. 7 March 2016

    Delivered on time with a smile. Nice bit of kit.

    Akhona, South Africa. 15 May 2016

    Very nice bit of kit. My MacBook is always backed up with no effort from me. Has all my media in a central place and can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
