i had a 1tb mybook world, worst thing i bought, the transfer rate was painfully slow, even though it says it has 1gb network, it runs at about 300kb/sec, takes ages to tranfer anything.

not voting either way, as i'm sure the price is good for something like this, but better off buying something with better reviews, which is what i'm going to do.

69.97. Cant beat that for a 1tb NAS
With code

Just noticed your thread and was about to mention you can get for £69.97 but you edited as I was typing. Apologies for duplicating the model you highlighted in my thread.

Network attached storage - a hard drive that connects via a network cable into your modem/router allowing other computers/devices to all access the storage easily. It isn't anywhere near as fast transferring files compared to a standard USB connected hard drive BUT there is a USB port on this for connecting directly and quickly to one PC if required.

Useful way for several PC's to share files / backup etc

Also has other features which may be of interest such as accessing files via the web from another location (extra cost may be involved for this service)

I think you can run the nix flavoured Print Server CUPS on it - just search for the mybookworld forum.
These are very flexible little devices that are quiet & use little power (5w on idle/standby) - maybe not the fastest & you need to have some basic nix skills to get the most out of them - but definately worth the money.
#14
Ah - just looked at the link. These seem to be the older v1 model (with the blue rings) which are slower than the newer v2 (white light) model.
Also the price seems to have jumped to £79.97.
Not such a great deal then - I'd pay extra for the newer model - I managed to get one at xmas for about £90 from Currys.

Think the price includes use of a £10 off £50+ code.
Also, suspect that the photo is out of date .... I'm sure PCWorld used the V1 photo when I bought a V2 from them.

It's a pretty old model. I have had mine for at least 3 years. Having said that, it runs like a dream but the speed is a little disappointing.

I have mine plugged into an Apple router, not had a problem with it.

They are also quite hackable if you want to set them up as iTunes servers, FTP, web server, print server or whatever.
#17
WOW that took 4 days to get hot.. LOL

Not sure about pic, just took of tinternet. but 69.00 for a nas not to bad. with 1tb drive
#18
this is hot, a nas drive is 35 quid on its own of fleabay ,then 60quid for a normal 1tb HDD
#19
Remember quidco when ordering through Tesco Direct! There is also a 500 point code doing the rounds but you can't combine them so it's one or the other.
#20
I had one of these...

Terrible device, very slow, no power management, lots of random rebooting. Most of these burn out after a while, as did mine. I removed the 1tb hdd and binned the rest of it.

You can get TWO TB for this price - COLD

This is the older model with blue rings.

NAS @ 1G Ethernet has transfer speeds of up to 80MB/sec. USB 2.0 attached HDD maxes out @ 35MB/sec. USB 3.0 will give you speeds around 100MB/sec (130MB max), unless you have RAID or SSD attached to it.
#24
Like other have said, these drives are painfully slow and not worth the hassle. Filling up the whole drive in one go would take days! I have the white light v2 and it was faster, but still slow. WD support is just awful, offering little updates and the updates that do eventually come fix nothing. Do yourself a favour and dig deep and buy a synolgy or qnap device.

I have one of these and it's absolutely fantastic - one of the best devices I've ever bought. Some others have posted on here saying they've had bad experience with this, all I can say is I've never had a problem. It's connected via ethernet (obviously) to a Linksys wireless-N router and I get really fast transfer speeds to all the devices in my house, even by wireless-G. It is a shame that it doesn't have power management, that would be a nice feature, but I've been using it for 2 years now and it's still going strong.

Visit this website - http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/
And you'll find loads of tutorials about hacking the MyBookWorld and installing other software on it. I've got it running CUPS, so now it's a printer server (the only problem with that is finding Linux drivers for your printer, so it won't work with every printer, and it won't do bi-directional printing so you don't get data back from the printer like ink cartridge levels, but you really need a purpose-built network printer for advanced features like that anyway. I've got it hooked up to an old HP printer for basic text printing), but by far the best thing I have on it is Twonky Media Server, which I paid £10 for a life time license for after a 30 day trial won me over. With this, I can fill the NAS drive with videos, music and photos and stream them to all the devices in my house. Great way of watching movies on your Xbox 360 and PS3.

The only thing to note is that there is a newer version of the MyBookWorld than this one, but this is the one I have and I love it.

Thanks for highlighting the various transfer speeds that could be in use by various devices, USB3 doesn't apply for this model of course... and the 1GB network is a bit misleading compared to real world results achieved with this NAS.

Note that reviews suggest this device is however considerably slower than 80MB/sec over the 1GB network interface. I'm not saying it's a bad device but the 1GB network connection seems a bit unnecessary.

FAIL - this is a NAS - not a standard hard drive.

LOL I started the week looking at this; the reviews aren't brilliant but it's very cheap at £70 so what do you expect I guess; heat added!

The problem is, if you start looking at what's getting the good reviews that these are compared unfavourably against, it all gets rather expensive - I ended up convincing myself that I "needed" to spend lots more on a 4TB Synology setup oO

Be aware that the round light version (not the more modern "white light") is more feature limited and much slower than the current generation of WD NAS devices. Good price but there is a reason why it is £40 cheaper than the newer version.
#30
I have the white light - the latest version and its brilliant - silent as there is no fan and sucks about 5w so is very efficient.

Would recommend this if this is the later model.

Be interested in your comments on how fast/slow the transfer speeds are over the network connector.

Yeah probably not as good but certainly a lot cheaper.... horses for courses really.

Does anyone know of a cheapish NAS that can run a Usenet client such as Altbinz etc?

strangely, after I paid £69.97 for the item, i was then refunded £79.97 once told it was out of stock. I shan't complain!
