Comments about Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB External Hard Drive - Home Network Storage with Remote Access:
I use this unit primarily for photo backup for my photography business and it is part of my network. The unit is very compact and extremely easy to set up with the detailed instructions. Pretty much just plug it into the router, install the software and it's ready to use.
I am somewhat disappointed with it's speed, though. It can take up to 15-20 minutes to transfer photo files for storage. Granted, they can be very large files, but I expected more speed.
