Similarly the argument can be had for Hard Drive manufacturers. I know people that swear to their graves that they will never buy from Western Digital, Seagate or Fujitsu. But I also know plenty more that have never experienced catastrophic problems with devices from the same manufacturers.
It really all depends on your unique use of the device. I've seen people complain about all kinds of hardware failure and then I see the shoddy environment they run their equipment in ie, dirty and never cleaned area leading to major dust build up, constantly bumping the table where the device sits or they handle the device without due care as if it's a kitchen utensil.
I can provide recommendations for Synology devices but I won't because if you read their forums it's full of people experiencing issues....but what you're seeing is only that percentage of people experiencing issues, it could be a minority. There's probably a greater percentage not experiencing any problems. Similarly with Buffalo NAS's or any manufacturers devices. I personally use two Dlink DNS-323's and have not experienced any problems with them. But you wouldn't believe me if you read the DNS-323 forums.
You need to look at this from a 'common sense point of view' and not a 'my glasses aren't rose tinted anymore so my opinion must now change point of view'.
Would that would be the MyBook Live? Pretty sure the regular MyBook external HDD doesn't have a media server built in.cphite wrote:WD MyBook 2TB
