Actually, its not as simple as our post title suggests. However if you find yourself accessing your portable drive repeatedly and it occupying precious USB space on your devices, then it might be time to step up your storage game with a Network Attached Storage. But aren’t those hard to set up and requires a networking technician to maintain? Well, thankfully not anymore with Western Digital’s My Cloud devices. And in this review we’re checking out one of their newest (and fastest) variants available, the My Cloud EX2 Ultra. Despite it sounding like a Street Fighter move, its actually a simple NAS you can buy and setup on your own – plus its got some nice features to boot. Check out our video review above and our findings below to learn more!
