This giant Hard drive is actually a fusion of four separate hard drives. Thought They need to work on the speed but still as I am using it for Film/Video Editing It works Perfectly Fine. You can access your date from anywhere in the world. But I love it if they have given the facility to access wifi network from the Drive. Though You can purchase a separate ethernet to wifi adapter and Connect the ethernet cable to the drive and then you can access your Home Wifi and connect your hard drive to Home Wireless Network. This is worth the money and quality are obviously superb as it is WD.
