The Bottom Line The Western Digital MyBook Live is a fast, plug-and-play, simple-to-use home NAS server that unfortunately lacks features and has a subpar remote-access solution. For a low-cost entry-level network storage device, the WD My Cloud is very impressive both in performance and features, making it one of the best deals for home users. For a low-cost entry-level network storage device, the WD My Cloud is very impressive both in performance and features, making it one of the best deals for home users. The affordable Seagate Central delivers as a fast and easy-to-use network storage device for home backup and entertainment purposes. The GoFlex Home Network Storage System is a simple storage server and a great accessory for a Seagate GoFlex Desk hard drive. However, if you want a NAS with a lot of features, you should keep looking.
