Not a NAS device or home cloud.. Cannot be managed locally. Cannot be assigned a static IP address, netmask, DNS, etc. I am sending this back. I wish that I had read the user reviews prior to purchasing, but I have owned several WD NAS drives before and never imagined that WD would intentionally take these sorts of drives in a different direction. I did copy another review because it was dead on accurate. I can't manage my wife and family photos for them. My wife takes hundreds of photos and video but she needs help organizing. When they fix this I will change my rating. This is the last time I trust WD. We cancelled our order at my company as well.
