Some customer reviews of Western Digital WDBVHT0040JCH My Book Live Duo 4TB

Most helpful reviews

Mark, Chelmsford Works in IT

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I've used Western Digital NAS before but not a twin unit as this is. It was very easy to setup and my other devices connect without issue to it either. I particularly like the feature that I was able to install the WDgo app on my IPhone an I'm able to connect to my NAS storage from work - very cool.
Bad points:
Wish that the cost had accounts for two 3TB drives instead of the 2TB it comes with. Haven't really used it long enough to identify any bad points at the moment.

John, Birmingham UK experienced PC user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Installation was straight forward after downloading the appropriate software. Initial conversion to RAID1 and first backup takes a long time, but once done normal operation is good. Being able to access your files from mobile device (Windows phone or Laptop, Android Tablet etc) is very good and a real bonus.




Bad points:
No real printed documentation other than from downloads. Conversion to RAID1 if needed takes about 5 hours and first backup about 3 hours, though once done, the automatic back ups work well.

Mike, East Sussex Ex Tech

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up but make sure you read the main instructions prior to setting up it could save you a lot of time later.
Bad points:
Bit slow in data transfer when you have so much initially to drag over but only have 100Mb ethernet If you have Gig ethernet should be no problem but this would be the same which ever device you pick.
