There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

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).

SmallNetBuilder says:

If you like the features and price of the single-drive My Book Live, you'll like the Duo even more. In addition to a second drive that brings either more capacity in span mode or a bit more piece of mind with RAID 1 mirroring (which is no substitute for backup), you get whole-NAS backups to either an attached USB drive or any networked share. And the much-improved WD2go cloud-based remote access is a nice plus, which is also available on the original Live via firmware update.
