How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The My Book Live includes most basic NAS functionality — such as the ability to operate as a media server, and provide access to local files over the internet — but forgoes features such as RAID and expandable storage to keep the price down. f you need the security of RAID, or want more granular configuration options, you'll want to look elsewhere. But if you just need to access your files from anywhere on your home network and the internet, don't have a router that will allow you to add NAS-like capabilities to any USB drive, and don't need more than 3TB of storage, the My Book Live is an affordable choice.
