    • The good:

    • The bad:
      Limited ports; Laggy speed; Overheats

    The Western Digital My Book Live Duo 4TB brings out the best in network attached storage drives as it offers something innovative and functional at the same time. What’s great about this NAS storage is that it does not seem to be trying too hard as it has yet retained what has been good for a very long time. 


    Physically, the Western Digital has the malleable chassis which does not really look or feel sturdy at all. Even though the drives that are spread into its body do not have enough durability, they still possess the functionality that it well expected and demanded from it. However, there are actually only 2 USB ports which are actually not much. But then again it’s not that bad for how much it costs and for the networks you get to share through it. It features an interface that is definitely accessible and does not give you any bugs or lags when it comes to connecting it as you can do it head onWhat it is made to is be the channel or the network wherein all the home networks will be able to connect with the device wirelessly. Not only do you get to do the usual and the boring on it, you also have the utter freedom to share data with the computers at your home whether they are photos, music, movies, and whatever it may be.


    It also enables you to stream media through your entertainment centre without any intended difficulty of any sort. Security is also a forte of the Western Digital My Book Live 4TB most definitely because it has the RAID 1 configuration which lets you have the added protection for all your data files. Even though the installation process of the WD My Book Live is not as easy as powering up an iPhone or any other device, this one comes with the start guide which is absolutely helpful. It has a very distinctive instruction guide which lets anybody feel at home with it and will definitely understand how it is supposed to work. But then again if you are not much of a book reader and you do not even pick up a manual when manipulating a new product, you might find the software’s installation much more informative. That it basically because upon booting it up, you get to see the processes you need to face in order to keep it functioning at its best.


    Most gamers and movie buffs will love how the My Book Live Duo 4TB has this feature which lets you play games efficiently and even with high definition via the Wireless-N networks use. It’s even possible to view files and photos through the use of countless apps which are all specifically for the Android and iOS Tablets. On the disadvantage though, there have been complaints regarding the speed of the drive as well as its temperature. They say that it tends to have lags as it also overheats when exposed with hard work. Nevertheless, if what you want is something that has a very affordable price for the speediness it can offer then this is what you are looking for.
