Please be aware. I ordered the 8TB model of the DL4100. There was no information on Amazon as to the number and size of disk drives that are installed. I checked other sites and they stated that the 8TB model came with 4 x 2TB drives, assuming a Raid 5 configuration. Mine arrived with 2 x 4TB drives in a Raid 1 configuration. If I want Raid 5 or 10 I have to buy 2 more 4TB drives. Not what I expected. If I wanted 2 x 4TB drives I would have ordered an 8TB DL2100, not the 4 bay DL4100. There is nothing wrong with the unit, it seems to work fine. I would say the information on Amazon is misleading, but it's just not there.
Update: I sent mine back for a refund. When I registered it, it told me it was "Out of Area". In talking to support (not in the US) I was told it wasn't a US product. I wasn't happy, but he told me i had a warrantee and they would make good on it. I started to receive power warning issues (error 1022). I called support (not in the US)...

Only having the NAS operating for a week, there is no way to know the long term viability of it. However, in the short term it has proven to be an excellent system. The Western Digital Red drives are made for NAS, so I’m not concerned about storing my important data on this.
Set up was trivial. I plugged it in to a gigabit switch on my network, plugged in the power and started it up. Only two small problems. The brief set up instructions tells you to type in a different URL if you are on a Mac or on Windows. Typing the Mac URL into Firefox (on my Mac) didn’t work. I then tried the same link (by copy/paste from Firefox) into Safari and it worked. The other thing I had a problem with is when prompted for a new password, they have a limit of 16 characters that I didn't find out until I typed my longer password.
Within 10 minutes I was all setup and ready to copy data.
The device comes preset to RAID 5, which is what I would have chosen...

I was a little hesitant about selecting this to review as I was afraid it would be too technical for me to set up get running. I decided to take a chance because I really needed the extra storage for all of the videos, Photoshop images, PDF's and photos that I create and/or use daily. Plus I loved the fact that I could set this up to automatically create folders and download images directly from my devices just from being in the same room. I can connect my devices via usb and download them to the WD My Cloud that way.
Well, I received my WD My Cloud and set out to get it installed and running. I was worried for no reason. It was very easy to get up and running and only took me a few minutes. It is working perfectly and it is fast. I have already backed up all of my files from my computer and it didn't take long at all.
The compact size is nice as well. I have it sitting on top of my desk and it doesn't take up too much room. Easy to set up. Easy to use. Very...
