This is a great idea poorly executed. The selling point is that you won't lose data because your files are "mirrored" to two identical 6 TB disks. The implication is that when one disk fails, it's a simple matter of replacing it, allowing the surviving disk to mirror itself onto the failed disk, and your work won't miss a beat.

Don't believe it. This unit failed within mere months after purchase. First one drive wasn't available and then the other. When I checked with WD I found that the drives are not user replaceable. The whole unit, all your duplicated data, has to be sent to WD and they give you a new unit. Your data is lost.

Since the failure of my unit was intermittent, thanks be to a higher power, I bought a second 12 TB Mycloud unit and copied all of the files to the new unit. Presumably because the original unit was failing, it took a full week to transfer files from the failing unit to the new unit. WD then gave me an RMA to return the failed unit. They don't try to save your data. Forget about. You disowned any security for your data when you signed the Accept agreement that flashed by during setup.

Instead of caring about my data, WD just sent me a new bare unit. I will use it to back up the unit that is currently working. Who knows where my data has gone? Anyone, even the NAS, can access all my personal files. Don't put anything significant onto one of the WD units.

My advice is to skip this altogether. The promised concept simply isn't honored by WD. Their customer service is good if your standard is that they answer the phone but it's terrible if you think that WD cares about the implied commitment that you data will be safe on a WD My Cloud Mirror. It's not.

Consider any data that you put on these drives to be fully at risk both for loss or for prying eyes.

I won't bother reviewing the features. Other people have already covered that very well. The only thing I will say is this works great as a network music server. I have it hooked up and it has no problem playing DSD 128 files.
My only issue was the temperature the NAS was reporting. I was watching the temps on the hard drives (which are reds btw) and they would stay between 49-51 degrees celsius. The tiny fan on the inside turned on for only a few min when temps peaked and if the drives are in the 40's it won't turn on at all. I contacted WD and it seems this is within acceptable range (and all the displays says all is healthy). But I also know that hot HDD's die sooner and was concerned. To its credit (or fault I can't decide) it never shut down or gave any issues even when it hit 56 degrees. The reds are rated up to 70, but that is cooking and I could imagine on the 1096th day (one day out of warranty) one of the drives die, or worse both..
My solution was to purchase the Thermaltake Mobile Fan II. Its quiet, 11 bucks, and plugs into the USB port of the NAS. I keep it at half speed sitting on top the NAS pulling air. Its now at a comfortable 30 degree celsius. The fan could easily drive it colder but I prefer to keep the fan low enough its not audible. Since my NAS is not visible I am fine with this solution but if yours is this might not be the best solution but a laptop cooling pad could be viable.
Normally for this big of a flaw I would give it 3 stars. But considering how easy it was to setup and the price compared to other NAS I only knocked off one.
There is some debate if temp is related to failure rates but a joint paper by the University of Virginia and Microsoft showed fairly convincing evidence (at least for myself). If you want read it yourself do a google search for Datacenter Scale Evaluation of the Impact of Temperature on Hard Disk Drive Failures, first author: SRIRAM SANKAR.

Bought this after weeks and weeks of reading about similar products. I was worried since some of the reviews I saw stated that the device is slow among other things.
Well, don't have other NAS to compare it with but this is a good product. It has many advanced options, some of which I haven't yet played with like the iTunes server, torrents and streaming.
My main use, for now, is the file-server part and to store documents, music, movies and family pictures.
To set it up you have to download a couple of Windows applications, all of which are detailed in the included brochure. After that, you can rename your device, set up folders, user accounts, and opt to use (or not) the default hard drive mirror configuration.
You can create cloud user accounts which allow you to see everything stored from your iPhone (after getting the free apps), and that part is very easy to set up and use.
It has default PUBLIC folders which means that every user will be able to access, but you can set up others and modify the security settings (similar to Windows).
One of my favorite features is that you can set up a schedule for the device to turn itself on and off, which for me works like a charm since I don't want that device turned on 24x7.
When I travel, I can copy my pictures from the iPhone to the WD with just a couple of clicks (it appears as another option from inside Apple's Photos app.)
The only time I've seen it was "slow" was when copying all my movie and MP3 collections from a laptop to the device using Wi-Fi (1.2TB or so), but later I hooked it using a LAN cable and it was fast. I have a N-type of router with 100Mbps wired ports.
As for the other options, already found through Google how to set up the Plex streaming and iTunes server, so I'll be doing that soon.
I'm very pleased with my choice.

This is a good, nice looking, and quiet NAS. The drives alone would cost $300, so $50 for the RAID, USB, 1GB NIC and OS is a pretty decent deal. Ignore the poor reviews for performance. Those users probably have network or setup issues. If you don't need all the bells and whistles like on the fly transcoding or dual NIC's, HDMI and VM capabilities, then this box is for you.
I think many of the poor reviews could be due to the fact that it was updating firmware the first few days. I noticed that performance drops when the device is auto updating its firmware. It will be updating firmware a few times when you first plug it in and I'm sure most people started copying data to it immediately like me. Once the updates were done, performance would return to normal. I average 60MB/second over the network port.
I've had no problem creating shares, setting up users, and transferring my first 2TB of data. No timeouts or write issues. I used both Robocopy and Drag and Drop to transfer files without issue.
The drives sit at 30 degrees idle but will hit 55 when active. I couldn't be happier so far.

EDIT: Auto firmware is disabled by default on the NAS. I think the WD Access and WD Sync apps were auto updating. Either way, if performance is flaky, make sure nothing else is running.

Was so exited about this drive. Got the 8 tb version, using it in raid 1. Shows down like nobody's business. Apparently the super bad indexing WD set up is useless and slows down the whole thing. Too many slow files might not be a good idea.
Also I connected an external drive to it, worked on the first day and I was happy, disconnected it to do some quick management on it, because over network is slow (even over ethernet operations like moving files within drive take so long, and update takes even longer) and when I attached the drive back to it, it did not want to read the drive. Unsupported file system warning. and the same drive worked on it less than 12 hours before this.
Putting externa drives on the network is one of the main reasons I went for this thing in the first place so that is really sad. i guess you get what you paid for.

This unit was ordered in to provide a central storage location for my household. I was enticed by the features listed, the reasonable price, as well as the Western Digital name having owned many of their products in the past.

The relationship with this device got off to a rocky start when I could not get TimeMachine to work consistently. Admittedly this was years ago and the functionality may have improved but it set the tone for what turned into rolling discrepancies with advertised features. TimeMachine was advertised as an "Out of box" feature and was one of the reasons for purchase.

With the TimeCapsule issue aside, I decided to see how the drive could help in other areas. Mainly media storage and streaming. Unfortunately more issues continued to surface. Half-baked solutions continued to slow the drive down and cause frequent shut downs and dropped connections.

The issues became unbearable. As a last ditch effort, most functionality was disabled in hopes that treating the drive as strictly a storage device would help its reliability... It did not.

I wish I hadn't give the drive so many chances to redeem itself. I wish I had returned it when I had the chance. To anyone considering this device, i implore you to pursue other options. One need only take a quick trip down the Google lane to see community boards flooding with user issues which, disappointedly, remain unanswered but Western Digital.

To Western Digital directly - Your company name had become synonymous with quality to a point where purchasing products became a "No-Brainer". I'm sad to say that I would be hard pressed to purchase another product after my experiences with the My Cloud Mirror. You're better than this.

Not impressed. First, if anyone is looking for something to replace a commercial "cloud" service like Dropbox, this isn't going to help you at all. While we (me and a businesses partner) are able to access files from our phones, tablets and laptops, any changes we make to said files do not necessarily get changed on the WD Mycloud device itself, nor can either of us see changes the other has made. In other words, it doesn't sync files, it just stores them and backs them up to the 2nd hard drive in the box. Might be great to backup or store photos/music from remote phones/tablets, so you can play or view from anywhere, but we can't see much else it would be good for.

Setup was a nightmare. The instructions sent us around in circles. We later discovered that the instructions given by WD are wrong. Documentation is very weak. It doesn't explain things like users, shares, public, Smartware, Timemachinebackup... Still confused about which software/apps we should/need to download and wonder if our setup is even secure. Can we share the public folder with a non-user...we still don't know.

Sending it back and paying for a Business Dropbox subscription. If you are VERY tech savvy, it might make sense, but it just isn't worth the hassle for most of us.

I normally like WD, but this Drive seems over-engineered and under-designed. It's got a lot of space, but the ability to actually reach your files can be hindered by the terrible proprietary software. The MyCloud "access files from anywhere" has never worked—it barely works when plugged directly into my computer. If it accidentally gets disconnected, it will return a solid red light that's difficult to clear when following the unhelpful online articles. The Dashboard to reset the Drive is inaccessible when the Drive is having any type of issue, making it impossible to properly reset.

Excellent Product. At first I was disappointed by it's performance it was merely giving 2 - 3 MB/sec copy speed and many times I got Windows error that file could not be copied due to Network problem. Started to diagnose the problem, I connected it directly to my Desktop machine bypassing WiFi router. Voila..!!! 5GB iso file copied in less than a minute copy speed was around 75 MB/sec at 1Gbps connectivity and was around 9 MB/sec at 100Mbps connectivity. The culprit was WiFi router and I realized that WiFi routers are built specifically for Internet sharing purpose their LAN ports are not capable enough to handle large file copy between machines. So, I proceeded and purchased 8-port Gigabit Desktop Switch and connected my WiFi, Desktop and WD-CloudMirror to it. Now, NO problem faced so far, large file copying is smooth at 75 MB/sec speed.
