When it comes to ease of use the WE My Cloud Mirror is hard to lớn beat. Initial thiết đặt is very easy & even sorting our remote access is simple too.

WD My Cloud Mirror 4TBfull review

While many NAS drives, with their need for installing disks và using screwdrivers, have a rather techly feel about them, the WD My Cloud Mirror range is clearly aimed at the consumer.

This includes the Apps button from where you can install third-các buổi party apps by clicking the icons below the danh sách of pre-installed apps.
