WD MyCloud 8TB review question ...

Just saw the video on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWL8NCk5FLw)

What left me with a question was when Dimitry complained about the NAS changing IP because of the router's DHCP ... why would anyone not reserve an IP address for a NAS?

Like the majority of users out there (I guess) I left my home router on DHCP, but the difference is, my NAS and HTPC have a reserved IP, DHCP reservation would simplify things, no? Or am I just over thinking things? I know sometimes I can be annoying (to my wife and friends) when I tend to "classify" and "organize" everything! lol


Nice video review BTW! :thumb:

I think you are over thinking this but you are correct.

Remember, the entire point of this was to show how a novice would approach setting up a backup.

True, totally forgot about that being for a novice user!
