Hi guys, sorry for being so late with my latest article. I’m pretty busy these days but I have a good news: I reviewed the latest Western Digital NAS, the My Book Live Duo. I think it’s a really interesting device, featuring 2x2TB Caviar Green drives and a Gigabit Ethernet connection.
Installation is simple, you just have to plug a power cord and a Ethernet cable. Check the NAS IP, for instance through the router web-interface, just put it in your browser’s addressbar and access the control panel. If you can’t, Western Digital provides a software to locate the unit.
There is nothing special about the interface, it’s exactly the same of the My Book Live we recently reviewed. Also with the Duo is possible to access the stored data through iOS Apps like the minor brother. So I’m not going to spend much time on this.
Anyway the interface is clean and responsive. iSCSI isn’t supported but this is a consumer product and so I don’t consider this lack an issue. The overall experience is quite good.
