The latest addition to WD’s popular My Cloud range of personal cloud storage drives is the My Cloud Home which features a fresh new design and capacities up to 8TB.
WD’s original My Cloud range has been around for quite some time, both as single drive units and as dual disc setups (the My Cloud Mirror) and an update to the product line has been somewhat overdue. Just as with the original line-up, the new My Cloud Home drives come in single and twin drive versions.
The single drive My Cloud Home entry model is 2TB with 3TB, 4TB, 6TB (the drive we are reviewing) and 8TB versions. The My Cloud Home Duo has two drives in a RAID 1 array so extends the upper limit (4TB, 8TB, 12TB, 16TB and 20TB) of capacities.
The good news is that the My Cloud Home is quick and simple to set up and you don’t even need a PC to do it, as the setup can be done via an iOS or Android phone.
WD back the My Cloud Home with a 2 year warranty.
