This hulk­ing black box links straight to your in­ter­net router, giv­ing you eight ter­abytes of net­worked at­tached stor­age spread over four hard drives. Win­dows, Mac and mo­bile apps then make it easy to ac­cess your files – in­clud­ing your pho­tos – from any­where with an in­ter­net con­nec­tion.

With enough space for over 200,000 D800 RAW files, a hard drive fail­ure would be dis­as­trous. Hence WD pre­con­fig­ures the EX4 to use RAID data pro­tec­tion, whereby if one of the four drives fails, the other three will piece to­gether any lost data. The only downside is that out­right stor­age space drops to ‘only’ six ter­abytes.

The EX4 is the ideal way to back up your en­tire photo and video collection and ac­cess it on the go. How­ever if you don’t need some­thing quite so ca­pa­cious, it’s worth not­ing that plenty of dual-drive al­ter­na­tives of­fer the same tech for a lot less cash.
