Western Digital MyCloud 2TB (Recertified) - £57.99 delivered

Found 26th May 2017
Slightly more expensive at £58, but this deal was super-hot around three weeks ago at £53 and it's only a fiver more.

Recertified product still comes with a limited warranty and a thirty day money back guarantee if you're not satisfied.

These went out of stock really quickly last time, so I hope this helps someone out.

If you really must put your files on a cloud (i.e your own one) you're better off using a QNAP or Synology device as they support their devices for years by comparison.

Companies of these sort of entry cloud type NAS devices rarely offer any kind of long term firmware support for these types of devices. Whereas QNAP and Synology are much better suited for a personal cloud situation.

I've got a QNAP device which released 2011 and it only just last week received its final firmware upgrade; QNAP made me aware that was the case too from within the devices interface when I logged in as well, so I kind of know where I stand with that device going forward.

During that time (since 2011) I've lost count of the amount of times that awesome little device has received newer operating system upgrades, bug fixes, vulnerability fixes and security exploit patches since it released and its now mid 2017.

You simply wont get that level of support from companies like Western Digital who's primary market is to sell HDD's, not servers.

If you simply want a local NAS that your not going to connected to anything more than a secure LAN then this is okay'ish, but if you want one that has strong security, receives regular updates, bug fixes, security exploit patches, offers SSL/TLS (https) certification for secure remote access, AES NI data encryption, bundles or free apps for easy setup and use from your IOS/Android mobile device, plus a bundle of other uses then buy QNAP or Synology.

4TB for £95 still in stock

We''re sorry but My Cloud 2TB (Recertified) is currently out of stock

​The single bay drives don't run plex. The media server is twonky built in. You need one of the EX2 multibay models to install plex i believe.

It really depends what you want to do with the drive. If you really want to expose unencrypted confidential files to the world at large then you are better off going for the most secure system possible, but if you just want to publish a large volume of your music files / photos / videos then it may not be worth the extra cost. I use Winzip secure AES encryption locally prior to backup if I want a remote backup of any confidential stuff - that has the added benefit I can also store those files on separate media at home too - keeping them completely offline to avoid the risk of attacks like seen recently.

I've got D link video cameras I use for security. Could I use this for recording?
Can you access these drives from an Nvidia Shield running Kodi?
