Western Digital Hardware Giveaway

Ok, you all know that I love tech. I love hardware and I love living in a well connected house. I make high demands on my internet, storage and watch just about all my tv on the internet(no cable here people;).

In the last couple of years the demand on my router has grown by leaps and bounds with tablets, NetFlix and Amazon on Demand. And at this point let me just say that there is nothing more annoying than snuggling in with your husband, 2 laptops and watching tv on my media computer then the streaming show goes into a holding pattern. Blurg!

So when I got my hands on the My Net N900 Router I was stoked. Why? Because it is made for the modern home! Not only is it fast it is also prioritizing. So my streaming show won’t be the thing that is slowed down when the 3rd person decides to load a web page!! Also there are dual channels, tons of ports and so much goodness!!! Pair that with the My Book Live 1 TB Personal Cloud Storage Drive for storage and access and you are unstoppable! You can even access it remotely!
And then there is the streaming! I mean I gotta watch or listen to something, right? The WD TV Live Streaming Media Player is a great option! If you have any paid media strategies then it is probably available! You can also access Facebook and YouTube.

Who needs cable when you have streaming? I mean, new media is the now and the future;).

Needless to say, Western Digital has you covered!

So how would you like to win a bundle of all 3 of these fabulous pieces?

  1. Jessica Wilhite says:

    My hubby would be thrilled to win this giveaway. We also do not have cable & watch everything on the internet or through Netflix. πŸ™‚

  2. Jessica Wilhite says:

    Oh and this would definitely speed up our streaming online making me one happy mama! πŸ™‚

  3. I could really use new hardware… πŸ™‚

  4. This will definitely help with the video streaming speeds in my house.Nothing worse than your video getting all choppy when you are streaming your favorite show.

  5. What problem wouldn’t this giveaway solve? LOL I can back up my hard drive, watch my favorite shows and ensure a steady internet connection!

  6. Can you say cut the cable cord??? Save money? Back up my hard drive?

  7. We cut the cord with cable, so all tv watching is streaming (or ummm old fashioned on the roof antenna – go ahead, laugh), but oh does it stretch our router to the limit. I bought NOT the N900 but so regret it. sooooo regret it πŸ™‚

  8. This may solve the router issues we always have in this house!

  9. This would solve the same issue as everyone else. We stream to our tv while someone else is playing a game on the desktop, then the hubs is doing his MMORPG thing on his laptop, while I am on my laptop or tablet doing the blog thing. So yea, this would help LOTS!

  10. jeannine s says:

    Our router is starting to go and fails at times. This would solve that problem and me unplugging it all the time

  11. My router is always over-taxed and this would really simplify things! Crossing my fingers. πŸ™‚

  12. great for backing up our computers & sharing stuff around the house

  13. it would definitely help w speeding up our streaming (sometimes ours even freezes :/) and backing up our electronic devices would be a BIG plus

  14. It will be great for backups and I would love the media streaming capabilities!

  15. I use the Wii to stream Netflix right now but would love to try this new (to me) technology. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Peter and I would love not to have to drag the laptop over to the TV all the time and reboot to get the sound to work properly. πŸ™‚

  17. OH! I sooo need this! I’m getting ready to cancel cable and go all streaming and this will make it so much better!

  18. MY MY MY Oh I need this. We have 3 laptops, a tablet, 4 smartphones, and XBOX live in this one house, and everyone uses the internet so this would DEFINITELY come in handy with the speed, also that 1 TB storage would be sweet!!!

  19. Tammy Sigond says:

    will definately spped up household…so many devices and would be great for video streaming

  20. I have two teens and this set would help stop everyone slowing down when we are all online.

  21. We totally need this, particularly for storage! I’m at max capacity on several computers.

  22. Would LOVE to have this!

  23. Would put money back into my pocket!

  24. My girls were each issued iPads this year for school. Add that to the the iMac, MiniMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and 2 iPhones at our house and you can see that we definitely need something that will allow me to stream my Amazon Prime shows while the girls are doing other things! πŸ™‚

  25. This would save me a ton of money because I could stop my cable subscription and just buy the shows and movies I want to see on itunes or netflix.

  26. Great giveaway. Our hard drive is getting filed up and we can really use a new one! Thanks!

  27. I SO need another streaming player and this would be perfect for our house!!

  28. This would be great so I can watch netflix again!

  29. Definitely- fast streaming!

  30. A fast router would be great!

  31. I’d love to stream Youtube for exercise videos.

  32. Marti Parks says:

    It will replace my pitiful router that wont let me get too far away with my Kindle Fire.

  33. This handles the issue of storage and accessing that storage. With a drive that’s always on I can access my files any time, not just when a computer is on or when a USB drive is connected. This is the future!

  34. I’ve been ripping my DVDs (purchased DVDs/not sharing the rips – keeping things legal here). The goal is to stream them within my house so my kids could load up any movie they want without needing to find the DVD (or put back the old one). This would take my project from planning stages to completion in one step.

  35. Most excited about the streaming player!

  36. This would help us to simplify our move to getting rid of cable. We are close, but I think this would give us the edge to being ready to finally do it.

  37. Fantastic prizes! The storage drive will be particularly helpful to me, because I am seeking data storage solutions constantly. Thank you for the giveaway!!

  38. Oh wow. that would be so awesome to win. The extra storage capabilities would save me!

  39. I have a Republic Wireless phone and sometimes my router drops my calls. Sigh! This bundle would stop that from happening, and make it easier for all of us to stream stuff online.

  40. With two kids and two parents, this would definitely help us all be online and use our connections better!

  41. My poor router just can’t keep up with all my devices. This would help me make the decision to cut the cord as I’d know that my show or movie wouldn’t be blipping due to too many other devices.

  42. extra storage hubbys always complaining about streaming soeeds and storage

  43. Our router is a few years old now and is starting to drop the connection once in a while. I also use Netflix and would love to try the live streaming media player.

  44. Our router is a few years old now and is starting to drop the connection once in a while. I also use Netflix and would love to try the live streaming media player.

  45. We just switched to streaming media instead of Dish. We usually have a minimum of three computers online, and we’re kinda out in the country, so this would be uber helpful!

  46. Oh my, the House of Hills would LOVE this one. What a great giveaway!

  47. A new router is needed AND you can never have to many back ups lol That would solve a few issues YEA

  48. Tabathia B says:

    Being able to completely drop cable and use netflix and hulu for tv shows and not worry about streaming

  49. More consistent loading times!

  50. Dameon Schirer says:

    The problem I have is owning 29k + songs takes up a lot of room on my laptop. I’m looking for a solution to move them from the laptop but still have access to them when I sync my iPods.

  51. My biggest problem is that I don’t have a good setup for backing up my data; the My Book storage would absolutely solve that problem!

  52. Wow what a neat contest having a spare harddrive with 3 teens in the house, spare room for all the stuff!

  53. Winning this would streamline our show watching and computer use with much less lag. What we have now takes forever to do anything and doesn’t have much of storage space.

  54. I’ve been itching to get rid of my cable!! Just the excuse I need!! I’m so ready for this!! *fingers crossed*

  55. I need more storage! I use all WD btw. Just ready for another one and was actually getting ready to buy one when I saw your giveaway! AND my Apple Airport Extreme is on the fritz. And, I love my MyBook World storage device that I have now, but it is outdated. Would love to have the latest, greatest cloud storage out by WD!

  56. What an awesome giveaway! I’m always up for good tech!

  57. I would probably need to hire professional help to set all this up, and then someone to teach me how to use it all, lol. However, I do believe it would solve that streaming issue when another device tags in to the network. I love the idea of all of this!

  58. Like you our router is bogged down BIG TIME! This would solve the speed problem!

  59. anthony ciofani says:

    I need a new router

  60. We could really use this. We have 4 computers on watching different things most nights. Plus my son is on X-box all the time, so our router could use to be upgraded.

  61. Gracie Dsouza says:

    This would be perfect for my house. Not only can I stream my music and movies I can also do it with performance and ease now …especially with the hdd!

  62. Kristina C says:

    Oh man. Do want do want do want. Maybe I could watch an episode of Walking Dead without having to refresh five damn times!

  63. Oooh, this would prevent my Netflix from locking up and needing to be reloaded!

  64. This bundle would solve our Netflix issues and help my hubby game more smoothly on his PC.

  65. Would put money back into my pocket!
