Elly Awesome: Own your own cloud - maybe this is better than dropbox? MyCloud by Western
Chris Luck: I bought one a few months ago and can say it is OK.
It does not transcode movie files; I have some which won't play over DLNA.
But it connects and streams flawlessly to all my devices.
Connection from out of the house is a bit limited as my cable is only a 1MB
upload, people on NBN with 20MB uplink would be better off.
I now have my phones setup to sync to DropBox, Laptop syncs dropbox and
also does daily auto backup to the WD MY Cloud ( I wrote a simple script to
do this). So phone pics etc are automatically on the WD within a day.
4 out of 5 for me. Needs bittorrent client and transcoding support for full

iGrazy: Could i host my own 24/7 server with this?
Ben Holder: Can you make it sync auto automatically when taking photos on a ios device
WhatPixelYouOn: This actually sounds pretty cool!
Chris Luck: I want control of my data. I don't need personal files floating around on
remote servers waiting to be analyzed by google and the like. The media
streaming is the plus it has over an external hdd. No more usb drives going
I need to know what its like to live with however, plenty of specs but not
many real user reviews around yet.

Doc Trower: Western Digital does it again. I currently own two drives to back up all of
my files (dating back to 2007), and they haven't failed me yet. Will
definitely consider MyCloud.
brianaustin1419: Sounds pretty awesome!! Excellent video as always :)
01silky1: so cool for you
Chris Luck: Thinking of this or the Seagate Central. Seagate seems to have a better UI
but WD has much faster LAN write speeds. But I'm yet to find anyone is Aus
selling the WD.
For me it must work flawlessly on Android and Samsung Smart TVs.
Fluffy1oO1Owl: So that system depends on your internet connection speed ?
Niskov: what about protection against physical theft, damage (fire, power surge),
bad sectors? the whole idea of web hosting is that you are covered against
these stuff as well, the MyCloud only allows you to access your files from
anywhere. you can achieve this with a software, and there are many free
Richard Harding: I got this product, previously named My Book Live, it's a fantastic idea,
way more efficient than drop box or any other cloud service you have to pay
a monthly fee to use. I was fortunate to grab a 3TB version on sale for
$150CAD. It's linked to my ipad and my computer as the administrator, I use
it to back up all my personal files, music and television shows. My
favourite feature is the Twonky Media Server that the MBL broadcasts, my
PS3 (I'm assuming Xbox could too) picks this up and allows me to watch my
TV and movies on my big screen! The media server does have a few issues,
meta data on files can be screwy regardless of what you've titled it, and
sometimes you need to rebuild the whole server for the PS3 to read files
properly, I'm not sure if it's actually on the end of the MBL or my PS3.
The only other complaint I have regarding this product is upload times. It
takes an inordinate amount of time for files to upload/download when you're
not on your own network. Other than that, I think it's an amazing piece of
tech that you should seriously look into when thinking about a new External
Caleb Harrison: So it's like an Apple Time Capsule?
Miguel Romero: this would be great if you have a decent upload speed. like on FiOs
Caleb Harrison: That looked like A LOT of fun! How do you get these kinds of invites?
Anissassina: I say hello because the constant Impulse to be the first to say. Something
on an otherwise empty comment box is overwhelming :D
