Setup Instructions and (missing) Utilities Inadequate
R. Martyn, Amazon

Summary: My rating of 3 is due to the following: 1) The instruction manual is close to useless. a) While in its original state (i.e. BIG setting) I plugged it into my computer (a good quad core Dell running Win7) and, as expected, the drive showed up in `Windows Explorer'. b) When I switched it to RAID 1, and replugged it into my computer - it was no longer visible in Widows Explorer.
Summary: The drive itself works fine but it's shallow button has problems on my unit. It sometimes gets stuck when switching on/off. On a couple of occasions I've turned off the drive - only to find it later on turns itself back on when the button unsticks itself. Thankfully so far its not switched itself off while powered on and in use otherwise data loss would occur. Whether this is a design fault or a faulty unit I'm not too sure.
