Good points:
It looks good
Bad points:
Poor set up instructions. States on the box it works with a Mac. Yes, it does, but you need to download an update! Even then, it took about 6 hours of fiddling about and still no good. Lots of forums on net and people reporting loads of problems ! Sent it back for a refund.

Good points:
Great price & hardware functions perfectly....
Bad points:
Never got discovery software to work (on 3 computers - Vista & XP. had to map drive manually). Always crashed on initiation. Contacted support who blamed firewalls etc so gave up.. I get the functionality I require but other users may not..

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This NAS can be configured how you want, you can run a back up in the back ground or use it purely for storage and once up and running it's extremely quiet and is found on my network by every source i own (PS3, 2 Sony bluray players, Panasonic Plasma TV and my laptop) with no problems atall with no need to scan for the device on my network etc. Files can be dragged and dropped with ease and there is no lag over a wifi network, even band hungry hi def video files stream with no issues to all devices over my network and it's exactly what i wanted.
Bad points:
There is 1 major flaw with this device and i would warn anyone with little or no computer knowledge to think twice before purchasing or get someone with more knowledge to install it to your network. The problem is that the included sofware on the cd rom is absolutely useless and better suited to using as a coaster, there is NO text on ANY menu meaning that you get the layout of the software and all is fine apart from there is absolutely no text to read!! I had updated adobe reader already so this was not at fault it's simply that the included cd rom is of a quality unsuitable for release to consumers.
I'm not going to write a lengthy explanation of how i got it working as that would take for too long but the utterly useless software is definately something to consider before you purchase as it takes the shine off what is a great product when up and running. It's no joke to say that it's as if WD just doesn't want you to be able to easily install this NAS drive and whoever thought this was suitable for release should be ashamed...and so should WD!!
