"Great Product - Software Interface is Crap!"1.5 starson by sisancho
Pros: The NAS MyBook World Edition II is an awesome 1 TeraByte!
Cons: MioNet is total crap, unfortunately WD doesn't tell you that you don't even need it to access your drive!
Summary: Also, if you check your network activity you may find (as I did) that the drive is contacting some IP address in France about every 15 to 30 minutes. Nothing is being sent but is this really necessary? The IP address is 188.8.131.52. My firewall logged the activity, Ethereal captured the content, which as I said was nothing. Further digging into the IP address suggests that it may have connections to MioNet.. maybe. I have done nothing further but I plan to call WD and ask them *** is this for. I love the drive, works flawlessly IF you avoid MioNET. -Si
