All four net­work drives on test im­pressed us with their range of fea­tures and the apps avail­able for

them. All four were easy to set up and con­fig­ure and had in­ter­faces that were friendly and sim­ple to nav­i­gate – though the WD and Synol­ogy stood out here. This roundup was about find­ing a NAS that worked well with Time Ma­chine, and the WD My Cloud was eas­ily the best, com­ing pre­con­fig­ured out of the box. Add in its rock­solid case, dual Eth­er­net ports that can be used to­gether to in­crease throughput or with one as a backup for the other, and 4GB me­mory, and it’s a cut above the rest. It is, how­ever, con­sid­er­ably more ex­pen­sive than the Synol­ogy, and if you’re on a bud­get, the DS218 is a very good choice. If you’ve got the funds, though, the WD My Cloud PR2100 is the one to go for.

The WD My Cloud PR2100 has a tough me­tal case, dual Eth­er­net ports, one­touch USB up­load and works well with Time Ma­chine.
