Summary: This device is simple to use, reliable, and works with all of our Devices with ease. Very quiet fan allows me to place by my desk. Speeds are descent, we use Western Digital black 1TB drives in raid 1.
Summary: Purchased this device to create a shared network drive for our home computers. Has been great for that. All our Windows computers map "My Documents" to this drive so that documents created on one computer can be accessed on any other computer. Pros: Has worked flawlessly for years.
Summary: I used two HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN 4TB 7200 drives in the system and they were easily recognized and mirrored. It has a number of advanced features which have not been utilized in its current installation (no need).
Pros: Installation was easy. Instantly recognized by client computers on the network. Installation of latest software made the install smooth. Great NAS for a great price.
Cons: Time for setup is a little lengthy, but necessary.
Summary: Very satisfied. Very reliable. I have several, some backing up others. I found out the hard way that large numbers of drives in one enclosure does not make for a very good backup strategy. If the enclosure fries, that's it, regardless of the condition of the drives.
Summary: What a little trooper. My husband and I call it the baby-buffalo as it is tiny (roughly 5" x 3.5" x 8") so has a tiny foot print that is only limited by the size of the drives you select. We use this to RAID backup our home network of data, photos, music and movies.
Summary: My devices came with the latest firmware, version 1.68, which could be why I haven't had any issues. I have RAID 0 running on one unit and RAID 1 running second unit.
Pros: It's inexpensive, fast and easy to setup and use. Setup for email notifications was fairly simple. Administration and other aspects are simple and self explanatory, but it maybe little challenging for a novice user.
