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.
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.
