WDEX4 hardware is Excellent! Rock solid & stable used to have limited mobile apps but now works flawlessly. Have been accessing WDEX4 remotely from around the world (UPDATE 4: August 2017). Actually, works faster & more reliably than Dropbox or Box. Can also use Sync by BitTorrent. UPDATE 1: Excellent WD customer service. WD reports having solved the issue. UPDATE 2: Looks like there is some improvement. Will post update after a few weeks. Increasing stars to 3. UPDATE 3: Thanks, WD for reaching out with assistance. Didn't have to use it as with this update the WDMC is much better. It is faster, syncs better, and is now quite reliable. Thanks for the update. Gives me a warm feeling about WD hardware and software. Increasing ratings to full 5 stars.
As a starter Home Personal cloud. With 4 terabytes get a good surge protector and as you learn step up to this units big brother with 2 disks. This will write a back up if one disk needs replacing. I Love the availability anywhere and privacy. Finally! Buy one and start easy like this unit.
I been using various NAS for years. My Cloud by WD is the one that fulfilled my requirements. I wish the device had a power OFF button or a power OFF option through the windows software or the Android/Apple APP, which is the only criteria missing in my requirements. Due to frequent power cuts the device is shut down abruptly. That's my major concern. Hope WD will facilitate/enable this feature in their future updates through respective software/APP.
The app is easy to use and works quite well. Apart from accessing one's own WD cloud files, you can also use it to link your other cloud storage accounts such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and MS OneDrive. Having access to each of your accounts without having to use their respective apps each time is very convenient.
It's such a good feeling to have the convenience of the cloud without surrendering your data to someone else. You can't buy this much online storage for anything as inexpensively as you can with the Mycloud. And the cost is not stretched out for years. I recommend Mycloud to anyone with a half decent internet connection.
App NEVER works properly. Tying to download a video files, even a small one, is such a stressful exercise. as soon as you start downloading two files are created one says complete the other is downloading but if your phone locks then all progress is lost. Also terrible view options for file names. you can't scroll across the title info so you can't see a proper written discription of the file
Supports Dropbox API v2
