Bad if you think about it

  • User interface only online

Only downside, and I really mean CONS is that there is no offline UI, and completely online dependent. You can only adjust maybe 5 options online. (This was not the case with the previous series of this.) Do you also want to install special software to connect a network drive to your PC? This should be a nose. And technically does everything it says on the packaging. This is not NAS! This is a kind of cloud that you put at home that another company can manage/view...(use?). So fine if nothing ever goes wrong with: - that website (suppose the website WD has moved that link or no control panel) - that nose (which is difficult to connect to a PC from within your own network) - that hard drive (reading activity/performance/user data...... I give up talking about this....... Advice: Buy yourself a synogoly series 217 play (2bay) or 5*series (5 bay) and beyond. Manage everything yourself, use various services and do this all over your lan without messing around. With a 2 bay you get 24 TB

Buy a real Nas

  • Easy to install
  • Economical
  • No user rights to assign

Doesn't like it. Each user gets his own 'cloud' which can be seen as a network drive but you cannot share anything together. I also have a Synology dj115 and it offers everything even though it is outdated. My advice: buy a real Nas and forget the WHC.
