Good points:
The hard drive can be set up so that I can access any of my data via my home network.. I can even add a usb hard drive to it which has many advantages. It also comes with easy to use software, so you don't have to be an expert to set this up.

Finally I was surprised to find out that the Hard drive had a lengthy 3year warranty with WD (registration required)... this is something I missed on the sales pages, but would recommend. I've had bad experience with Hard Drives in the past.. and touch wood, WD seem to be the most reliable so far and this warranty backs it up.
Bad points:
not suitable for direct usb use i.e. disconnecting from network and trying to directly connect it to your pc/laptop.. there is no function for this..

Also the networking of the device makes data transfer significantly slower than what the hard drive is capable of. Its nothing major, but if you were expecting a super fast moving of large files, do not look here. If your looking for a backup device that will backup all your PC's / Laptops on your network however then this is ideal!.

Good points:
This is a fantastic product, it has made my life so much easier. I was Illonis, USA recently and had forgot a file for a meeting. No problem just go on the internet type oin your password and bingo there is the file. Its simple to set up easy to use and briallinat value for money.
Bad points:
would be great if you could save files to the drive over the internet, but do not let that put you off. If you have everthought ut a network drive this is the one for you. It is brilliant.

Good points:
Found it very easy to setup.

My Laptop and PS3 discovered the hard drive as soon as it was connected to my router.

I have been using the backup software the accompanied the hardware and found that setting up a backup plan very easy.

I also had to recently purchase a new laptop (which runs on windows 7 ) as my last failed and found it just as easy to restore all my files to the new laptop and continue the backup plan.

Good points:
A simple to use and install network storage device. I am a non technical person who needed the device to share photos and music across the families’ laptops and PC as well as access The World Book remotely for my work. It has satisfied all the aforementioned and was easy to install. I strongly recommend this product.
Bad points:
