Don't get scared by the bad reviews, most of of them are people looking for high end products for their needs. The cloud home is perfect for the average consumer. You connect it to your router and download an app to your computer/ cellphone. Once installed it acts just as a connected external hard drive, you have a folder for the hard drive and you can just drag files into it. The beauty of it is that you are not tethered to it and you can move your laptop freely without having anything connected to it. I would highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a basic external hard drive. This just takes it to the next level by making it wireless.
