it's working perfectly and silently.
No worries up to now after 2 months of test.
Recommended for whoever is looking for a network hard disk drive to share his access to it from different home PC's and to use it as a Network Media
server with the DNLA feature.
I'm totally satisfied with this product and Amazon's service.
ordered an other last week,running out of memory,should have it by Wed.1 May/2013
will be buying 2 4tb,hopefully Amazon.ca will carry them by then.
had 7,but gave one 2 tb away to a friend in need.
have 6 now 3 mybook live & 3 regular ones,I back up in pairs
I never loose any data anymore
2x3tb mybook,1x2tb mybook
item arrived as promised,hooked it up & set it up + filled the warranty,
all in under 15 minuted,already have files on it already,great addition to my hard drive collection,
next on the list is 2 4tb drives.
want a dependable drive,buy HD,you won't be let down,I too had problems with my first ones,
due to my errors,I just didn't understand what I was doing,got my young nephew to hook it up,
now I can do it my self,customer service is quick too,I only needed some information,
not for any technical problems with the drives.4 + years with no issues,
as of for the negative reviewers,it's probably not the drive,it's your computer & how you set it up,
I had all the same problems at first,I wouldn't have bought 7 of them if I thought it was the drive,
there might be the odd one that is faulty,nothings ever perfect with any electronics.Read more ›
Fast transfer speed over ethernet connection, slower speeds with wireless so the initial setup should be done over the router, especially if you have a lot of data to transfer and/or backup.
Finally, I would recommend this product over a homebuilt NAS, or a lesser known NAS if you're not tech savvy only because WD forum offers answers for a lot of common and uncommon problems with their products.
Otherwise for simpler networking inside the house with computers, if is flawless. Therefore, five stars for networking with other computer and don't buy it if you have very large amount of media in hope to connect directly with your TV or DVD as the build in software "Twonly" does not seem to be ready for that
I returned it for a refund.

This was a Christmas gift for my nephew.
He is quite happy with the unit.
Much better choice that just getting an external USB drive.
I have used it for two month. It works well. Never down in network. I always use it for video streaming and data backup. Very good to connect it over website. Read morePublished on Dec 13 2013 by suriya jirasatitsin
