The good folks at WD (Western Digital) sent me an 8TB model of the WD My Cloud Expert Series EX4100 NAS (Network Attached Storage) to try out and review. This beast arrived last week and before I share with you my thoughts and experience with this storage device, I’d like to share with you the unboxing photos I took earlier today.
