It may only have one drive, but Western Digital's My Cloud network drive is an affordable and easy way to bring network storage to your house. Network-based storage can be great, but if it's slow it can be a real pain. Thankfully, the My Cloud is the very opposite of slow, with TrustedReviews calling it "incredibly fast" and PC Mag complimenting its "incredible read/write speeds." Western Digital's My Cloud service also gives you the ability to access your files from your smartphone or tablet, but TechRadar warns that weak media support may make its use rather "limited." Still, the My Cloud drive is priced at just $149 for 2TB of storage, making it a pretty affordable way to build your household its own personal cloud.
The WD My Cloud isn’t the NAS for you if you need lots of features. If file sharing and remote access as your prime concerns, The My Cloud’s a good choice because it’s simple to set up and use.
