The one I ordered died because of file witting errors ...

The Actor's Photo lab, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: The one I ordered died because of file witting errors. Seagate replaced the drives but wanted $8,000.00 to recover the data. The second one they sent me seems to work for now.

RAID does not protect data from a single drive failure

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: Just over 3 months after I purchased the drive array, one of the hard drives failed. Seagate replaced the drive under warranty. But even though it was configured properly as a RAID 5, the data was all lost. Technical support was not able to help, and sent me to a data recovery department that would get the data back for only $4000! Fortunately for me, none of the data I had put on it was critical- yet.

Solid product

Jane, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: We have this hard wired to the Dell computer. It was a very easy set up and provides peace of mind as we now have back up for all of our files. It is rather expensive but it is a high quality product.

DO NOT BUY the Seagate Business NAS!

Mike Jackiw, Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: I have been a network administrator for nearly 25 years. I was a strong proponent for Seagate and loved their drives all the way back to the Mac SE and Amiga days. So I was thrilled to get their Business NAS 4 Bay 12TB system. What a piece of worthless crap. I bought two, as their documentation said they had NAS-to-NAS. No, they don't.

setup is somewhat hard, maintenance is pretty tame

AIROLF, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: As someone who is pretty familiar with computers, and has a college degree in information technology, I can figure out any software/hardware quite easily. Still, it generally helps when the accompanying manual is detailed, and step-by-step. This was not the case for this item (it's a pretty expensive item not to provide extensive documentation and support).

Started out great...

D. Matheny, Amazon
19 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a complete re-write of the review I left a few weeks ago. At that time, I had been using this NAS for about a month; and, aside from the slow setup interface - I felt like it was working very well. Unfortunately, the honey-moon ended yesterday and I'm now in the same boat as many of the other product reviewers. This NAS device started alternating between not being able to get an IP address and not booting at all.

Space! Lots of space!

Charles Donovan "Cardinal Charlie", Amazon
19 June 2013
  • Summary: When you shoot hours and hours of video each week, you have to fork over the dough for something like this. Fortunately, I'm not the person in my company who sets up this stuff, so I didn't have to deal with those issues like others have. I just fill up the thing. Basically, it works fine, it doesn't take up a lot of space (our server is crammed into a corner of our storage room) and though the fan can be heard, that's not a problem unless, I guess, you've got it by your...

Very good, the right choice for most users

L. Wick, Amazon
17 May 2013
  • Summary: Because I have two Western Digital DX-4000s running, and because there are already a number of good reviews of this unit, I'm going to stick to comparing and contrasting the Seagate and the Western Digitals on a few criteria. Setup: the Seagate is easier and simpler. I was through the setup script in about ten minutes, taking plenty of time to think about the setup choices.

A Great Solution to Data Storage

Rowdy P. Scarlett "Yeah, I can dig it....a li..., Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: So, I got this mainly to use for storing my Music, PDFs, Pics, ect and for anything that I might want to get back to later. This will be MORE than enough space for that and lots of room for others to use as well (Family cloud). Anyway, first thing I noticed was this thing is a bit heavy, yet small enough to hide away and quiet enough to forget about once installed. Installation was pretty easy (Note, I am NOT a Tech Pro.

Nice Product But Not Ready For The Masses

Dan McKinnon, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: For $1000 I usually better be getting my money's worth (unless I am hiring lawyers where then $1000 can be a discount lol) and in the case of the Seagate Business Storage 4-Bay 12TB Network Attached Storage I feel it's far too risky of a product to pick up right now. The product worked fine with my Windows based system but I will admit that I agree with other reviewers that documentation is lacking.
