  1. Hi,
    Thanks for the video. I have purchased WD Mycloud 3 TB drive. However I did not received this much speed in Data transfer?
    Is data transfer in Network depends on Internet Speed. When I am trying to copy the Movies from Local system to My cloud connected to Airport Extreme router which is located near few feet away.

    I did not get this speed or is anything I am missing?

    Please help me.


  2. can it be setup like mentioned below.
    1) PC is having 2 gigabit connections
    1 connection is plugged to gigabit Ethernet switch
    2pc connection is plugged to WD my cloud drive
    2) both connection is bridge and switch is connected to internet router with 10/100 Port

  3. I hope WD goes out of business. You all deserve to be out of a job and should be ashamed at the convoluted garbage you create and tout as data solutions. All I need is a data locker that backs up to the cloud. That's what I thought I was getting, but instead I bought a giant, a$$-seeking dildo that looks like a 4tb external hard drive. Now that I'm all stretched out, I am going to return this horrible piece of sh!t tomorrow. Also, thanks for saying gigabit so much that I never want to hear it again.

  4. Yeah, this device is neither user-friendly nor stable. I bought it to archive terabits of data and the amount of hoops I've had to jump through just to get to this point is astounding. It's going back to the store tomorrow.

  5. You have to be joking, have you listened to yourself?  You are not even talking English!  I know you techies live in a world of your own with your own language, but seriously you are selling this product to real people….  Following this is a nightmare!
