With terabytes of photos, videos and miscellaneous stuff spread across five computers, I'm probably the ideal candidate for a network-attached storage (NAS) device. If you're willing to download software and sign up for a Western Digital account, the EX2 Ultra offers a number of additional, cloud-focused features. It's worth noting that while the new EX2 Ultra is clearly a step up compared to its predecessor, it still lags behind NAS servers from companies such as Synology and QNAP, in terms of features, functionality and the number of supported apps.

There’s been a flurry of Wi-Fi enabled hard drives hitting the market of late, but Western Digital My Passport Wireless goes one better in the way that it offers an SD card interface, making it an ideal solution for photographers who’d like to back up on the go and control it via WD’s My Cloud app using a smartphone or tablet. There’s the option to import an SD card data automatically as soon as it is inserted, and imports aren’t interrupted when the Wi-Fi network is changed. Connect to the drive wirelessly and manage your files using the WD My Cloud app on a smart device. Western Digital claims the drive’s rechargeable battery should be able to provide up to six hours of continuous video streaming and up to 20 hours of standby time. It’s possible to backup and transfer your images and video to the drive directly from an SD card, using the built-in reader slot. With a battery life of up to seven hours and a 90ft wireless range, the Corsair Voyager has a custom app for iOS and Android devices, however, it lacks an SD card port for instant image back-up like the WD My Passport Wireless.

In AP 13 August we speak to top pros about how they set up their autofocus for various genres of photography. So when Western Digital's WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra, a dual-bay server, crossed my desk, you could consider my interest piqued.
The My Cloud is my favorite of these, as it gives you remote access to everything on the drive from a browser, or through free apps, available for Android and iOS. Naturally, the pre-populated versions come with two of Western Digital's WD Red hard drives. You can automatically upload photos and videos taken with your mobile devices directly to the drive, but I'm fairly comfortable letting Apple and Google's native photo functionality handle that.
The WD My Cloud app also allows users to email, print, or open images in other photo editing apps such as PS Touch or Snapseed.
As a device for photographers who use a camera that accepts SD media though, it’s invaluable for backing up your images when you are on the move or on location when carrying a bulky laptop isn’t a practical option. UK, publisher of Amateur Photographer and other iconic brands about its goods and services, and those of its carefully selected third parties. We were fond of the original My Cloud EX2, a simple plug-and-play option for folks looking to wrangle storage across their home network.
And the allure of the "personal cloud" is strong: having access to my raw photos wherever I have a Web connection is a tantalizing prospect. But if you get the disk-less version, you can just pop the lid open, and use a pair of standard desktop SATA hard drives from another vendor.
Downloading files from the drive to your phone is easy and may prove useful, but again, I turn to services such as Dropbox and Google Drive for most of my needs.


I just have to pop over to Western Digital's MyCloud website, log in and see whatever I've stored on the drive. And playback is limited to what your mobile device can natively handle: that largely rules out my raw files and the more esoteric video formats I've got kicking about.
You're getting the same simple enclosure, with LED lights that show the status of the EX2 Ultra's drives.
Though a little cumbersome, it's convenient enough; I'd appreciate being able to sync a folder on a remote computer with one on the NAS automatically, as many other NAS servers can do this. We've yet to put the My Cloud EX2 Ultra through the usual performance tests in the CNET Labs. At the very least, the EX2 Ultra saves me from the sort of subscription fees I'd see if I tried to store this much stuff on services such as Dropbox. I'd still of course hold onto my Crashplan account, for the peace of mind that a proper offsite backup solution affords, but having ready, convenient access to my stuff is a nice touch. Stay tuned for our full tests though, as we see how this new model stacks up to the competition.
