Doesn't work as advertised.
Reviewed by Anonymous Review Posted 20/11/2015

Bought this drive with the intention of using it to store files that I could access away from home. However, the Web Access feature does not work, despite following the instructions to the letter and even referencing several YouTube videos. And after several weeks of trying to get remote access to work, I now can't even view my files locally. Essentially, I am just left with an expensive hard drive. Not impressed.
