Was this not the same one that was £65 at Comet last week?
#3
WTENA001BCP gets you £10 off
#4
Comet is the Essential Edition

This one is much more useful..
#5
You will also have £3.95 delivery.
#7
Don't forget Quidco!
#8
Anyone know why it talks about coming with an ethernet cable? Also was it really £300?

This isn't a NAS is it???
#9
It better be or its going back; all references on web show it as USB; only OP & ethernet cable in spec prompted me to buy it.

OP are you sure its a network drive/NAS drive ?
#11
Following the model number leads to a blog leading to an american site (sam's club) indicating that this model number is the WORLD edition, NOT office & therefor a NAS...

Of course the pic AND the description are of the office edition (a standard USB fella).

But a £90 1TB NAS....
#12
They're never very good at descriptions!

Could be either....we shall have to wait and see!!

Would be good if it was a 1TB NAS for £81.40ish after discount and Quidco!!
#13
model number also referenced as a NAS on this site, see:-

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/163581/750gb-seagate-freeagent-desktop-har/

It's for sale at PCW at £110 so maybe £90 is not out of the question...
#14
If it is & you want to push it's boundaries, take a look at the site below to open it up a little

Even if it does turn out to be the one with ethernet, it's not a true NAS drive. It uses a system called MioNet which uses software on the computer to make the drive available over a network. Both the drive and the computer have to be on for this to work, and from the WD site it seems there are more limitations than that:

"MioNet DriveAccess™ - You can access this drive from anywhere and securely share the files on it free for the lifetime of the drive as long as the computer it's attached to is turned on. (Windows only*) "

"*MioNet services require Windows operating system. The computer to which My Book Office is connected must be turned on for these features to function. Restrictions on certain file types apply."


Could be useful in certain circumstances, but perhaps not for everyone. :)

Mega, I know little about these things, but that hack site seems to indicate you should be able to "fix" it to act more as a proper usb / print / torrent server.

Dunno, even £80 on a punt seems a little rich for my blood at this time of the year...

You are confusing the MyBook Office USB drive (which uses MioNet) with the MyBook World drive, which is a NAS drive, which you MIGHT receive. This doesn't use MioNet.
#18
No confusion. You are assuming it is the World version. I'm not.

The title and picture on the site say it is not. The World version has a ring of LEDs on the front, not the slit in the picture. The World version is also one of the most expensive in the range. Only the model number is for World one.

If it is not the World version and it has an ethernet connection, then it's the Office one using MioNet as that's the only other WD model using remote access.

We won't know for sure until one arrives, but my money's on it being the cheaper/lower spec one.

The MyBook World drive comes with MioNet, you don't have to use it though. I've had one of these (MyBookWorld 1TB NAS) for several months, it's doing a good job of central storage for the three XBMC Xboxes and other PC's at home. I paid £130ish. Hhmm, can I justify 2TB?:whistling:

I don't know about either of you 2, but I KNOW I'm confused...

I'd also take a stab that bargain crazy is a bit too.

Either way you've got grounds to send it back if it isn't the NAS. And as it's available at £110 - 130 at a number of places the 90 quid mark isn't ridiculous...
#22
. . . . . . and there's me thinking that this site was suppose to help folk like me decide . . . . . . .. I dont know what I'm talking about and AM CONFUSED !

Grounds not required other than to get postage costs back. DSR facilitates return anyway.

The drives with rings around are the old drives and have all been discontinued, go on the wdc.com site and you will see
#25
Just got a phone all from them this is the expensive; world series; they will honour orders placed ;however price has now gone up . I'll let u know what its like when I get it.
#26
Mine has been despatched as well!

Link now goes to the World version.

Result!
#27
Well done guys, didn't go for it in the end, 80 squids is a bargain, but still a little too rich for my blood...

Take a look at that site to get into the software on it though. It can really expand what it can do (specifically I wanted it to act as a print server as well, and it can!)
#28
