Summary: Got it setup in about 10 minutes, then spent about 30 minutes going through the menus and configuring the drives the way I wanted (RAID 1 for me). Took about 3 hours to reconfigure to Raid 1 (I let it run overnight).
Summary: Overall, this device does what it is supposed to do: stores files on the network. It seems a little slow and the web interface is not great. The included backup software doesn't work very well on my home network and reports random errors for no obvious reason.
Summary: I agree with other reviewers that Pro Duo delivers most features it advertises at a good price point. The RAID 1 and security features are good selling points. It is also relatively quite. However, Pro Duo is kind of short in delivering acceptable performance and reliability as a whole. Examples: 1.
Summary: OK I purchased this unit on January 23rd 2009 and Sunday night January 17th 2010 one of the hard drives failed. I followed the directions on how to troubleshoot the unit and you better have another location to store all of you files or You Will Lose them.
Summary: This is my first NAS, and I barley no what I am doing. I like everything about it accept it is SLOW. And my biggest complaint is that when ever I shut it down it starts back up with errors. I have it on RAID (the dublicate option) and it keeps getting out of snyc.
Summary: I'm happy with this purchase except for the noisy fans. The fans are on all the time, unlike my PCs that only come on occasionally. All my networking equipment, including this device is in my home office, so the noisiness is a big negative for me. Everything else is what I would expect.
