WD My Cloud EX2, on the other hand, is a two-bay NAS unit. This is coming from a manufacturer that was the first to put out a consumer version of NAS specialized drives- the Red and the Red Pro series. I really like NAS units, but I really wish ethernet controller makers start producing low-cost 10Gbit ethernet ports. We’re stuck with 1Gbit for a very VERY long time and it’s long overdue. In a time with USB 3.0 will be soon to be succeeded by USB 3.1, it looks strange that LAN speed is lagging behind. It’s essential, especially for having large wireless via a hardwired connection.
