It has many great features that we don't use like DLNA

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: 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.
Great NAS Solution as File and Media Storage and Server

Summary: I also have the LinkStation Live model, which is a bit cheaper and as some flaws that I was not very happy about. The Pro Duo does not have the same flaws like its sister and also has a few additional features, such as the Media Server.
Summary: I replaced an old Snapserver with this guy. I changed the RAID settings to disk mirroring of 500GB -- the default was RAID0 giving 1TB of storage. Pros: * Quiet, very quiet. * Fast. However, I'm not running videos or other really large files. Music, pictures, and office files mostly.
Summary: I researched NAS options and read countless reviews on various products for months before taking the plunge and buying this device. I was somewhat apprehensive about what might be involved with the technical setup. I am somewhat tech-savvy, but by no means an IT expert.
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.
