Disappointment !

Cuff64,, TigerDirect.com
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this unit for my wife to use to store photos, music etc to be able to access from home, at work or from her iPhone. Very disappointed with what I got. 1st accessing from home with a PC that is wired into the network is the only way this equipment really works the way you would expect. A wireless device in the home kinda works, and accessing via the Internet or using the apple app is just garbage.

  • Summary: No power switch means that you will have to pull/push the power cord more often than needed, and put stress on the wires over time. It's my first "NAS", so take my comments in perspective to that fact.
  • Pros: I got it on surprise special... ;o)
  • Cons: Noisy. Supplied backup software (Novabackup) is kind of useless. No power switch.

  • Summary: The mobile apps are not the easiest to set up. Works great over my wifi to transfer data to my ipad but not that fast when away from home due to my upload speed.

Web access

N, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: For some reason the admin section is unavailable, I can see some of the page but not all, so I am unable to configure web access, Tried using firmware update, desktop update but still no go. I now have all my files transferred on to it, until I get another I am pretty stuck with it.................

WebAccess does not work

Mr Richard J Selby, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I realized when purchasing this that it was the cheapest NAS available that would work our of the box with little config. The transfer speeds to and from the device are not an issue, not that I transfer a huge amount to be honest. However the WebAccess feature - to allow you to access the device remotely - is very poor. In my case it is so intermittent, several times I have had to reload the device to get it to work.

Works fine once set up. Not very intuitive to set up though

  • Summary: Initially looked like all was going well but then when trying to make it visible to the rest of my network took a lot of configuration with IP address changes.
