Re: jaws 2018 and thinking to buy a NAS

John Gurd

Just a warning about WD MyCloud products. I have a MyCloud EX4 and have found some parts of the interface are inaccessible with JFW at least. More importantly, despite Western Digital being a large complany, the product has a history of serious internet vulnerabilities. Two in recent years allow someone  to take control remotely and the 2nd is still on-going. So much so, users are being told to unplug them from the internet.

Hi Daan,

I use a device in the MyCloud series from Western Digital and it works well.

I don't know how it compares features-wise with the companies you mention, though my needs are relatively basic.

I am currently using jaws 2018 and want to buy a NAS. Since
accessibility of the interface of the NAS is very important I send
this message to the group to ask if there is someone to help me to
choose the most accessible NAS system.

I read Synology is a good company that makes NAS systems with cool
features and a big app store. I am wondering if the interface of "disk
station" is accessible and also are the extra apps also accessible.

Are there other NAS systems like QNAP or Netgear also accessible?
