Just what I needed...8/30/2013
Up until purchasing this I had been using old hard drives I'd been collecting here and there for extra backup and storage. While that works alright, it can be a pain and time consuming. The setup was easy and the programs with it are pretty good. I transferred my most of my media to it and have found that the play back on our Google TV has improved greatly compared to playing it from my desktop computer and having to leave it on when I needed to access it. Overall, I am very happy with this product.
Very easy setup and use and twonkey works great with xbox and sony blue ray to view photos and listen to music even works with my android phone flawlessly
Great replacement for my server7/24/2013
I decided to retire my old rackmount server. This nicely did the job of hosting my music files, video files, and pictures. I just made sure they were all in my profile on my PC and setup "file history" for Windows 8 to point to a share on that device. No more keeping files in two places - server and backup device in one!
I was unaware of what this drive could do for our home cloud. We've had shared storage for years, but this unit has an internal server for entertainment media that is easy to use and just works.
Easy to setup but has it's quirks6/30/2013
Setup was super easy .. until i wanted to add private folders and users. Had to do a lot of research to find correct solution for my problem. Couldnt access the private folders when drive was mapped and logging in as the user with permissions to the folder kept failing. Windows7 solution found here: http://wstd.lithium.com/t5/My-Book-Live/Password-Problem-and-Question/td-p/423004
WD Live 3TB6/7/2013
I am so happy with this external hard drive. It was very easy to set up, allows me to back up my laptop without being attached to anything, and is powerful enough to run programs too! TONS of storage. I've always liked WD products and am happy that I decided to buy another one!
Easy to set up and use. However, I am getting only 2.4 mg/sec. Very slow
I don't have to worry about my pc going down now, with the automatic sync the drive does everything for me. It automatically uploads any files thats been changed for me so i've always got the most up to date information when I'm on the go.
so far so good; easy to setup

Easy to install and use on work network so far!
Decent NAS drive12/28/2012
The drive worked well as advertised. Hooked it up to my gigabit router and speeds were impressive (300 - 500 Mbps). Sharing content with family and friends was much harder and more involved than I thought. Would have been nice to just email a link so others can view pictures/videos. Instead you have to setup seperate user accounts and people have to login to the drive...minor gripe. Good features for the price. Best for experienced users (not for novices).
it was cool12/23/2012
It worked for me
Great concept, not for all11/5/2012
Absolutely the right idea for home networks and traveling workers. Getting used to the method transfer is more challenging. Setting it up is more complex than most will want to mess with. The Software on the original disc was not what you need to set it up. When trying to set static IP address, it causes other Network issues and can't be seen other than by the network.
Received product quickly, great price
Network Hard Disk Drive10/21/2012
Hard disk seems to be speedy and simply plugged into the network and was found. I am having trouble saving to it from a Windows 7 Home Computer, but an connect from a Vista computer, so suspect I have another problem. Seems quite speedy from the Vista computer so far.
This is a great usb hard drive. It is super fast and very quiet. The shipment was fast as well. The price is very resonable as they have dropped over the years. I use it to backup all my data in case my hard drive crashes. Definately will buy a couple more.
