Just been looking into a home NAS for the first time, and I purchased the WD My Cloud Home 2tb drive yesterday. I have not opened it as I have come to realise that the USB port is read only - meaning backing this thing up might be problematic.
Looking at other NAS options it adds up to around the $500-600 mark, with the WD being $235.
We use apple operating system and the drive will be storing some work stuff, but really its for the ease of sharing data across our laptops. Having a setup with raid1 to mirror the data seems like a smart idea, but if I can get the WD drive backing up on another USB drive then it could mean for the cost it's worth sticking with it.
Anyone have any suggestions? Any experience with the WD drive?
