Summary: I bought this unit to replace a failing, very old, HP Home Server. I already have a Buffalo TeraStation III that is about three years old. I needed a second unit for redundancy. I was impressed by the advertised ability of the new unit to replicate itself to the older unit, which means that a backup...
Summary: UI is a little bit slow, and entirely through a web interface (not necessarily a negative). A nice off the shelf system, plug it in, ready to go. Noisy at first boot, but very quiet during normal operation.
Excerpt: The setup wizard made it easy to create video server directories and data directories. Gigabit speed with my wired desktop computer enables FAST connection and upload of files. Auto-SLEEP features allows for server to shutdown at bedtime and wake-up prior to our wake-up in the morning.
Summary: this unit is cool, but its setup as a home network type of thing ... thought it would be different .... thought my grand daughter would be able to access the unit for her favorite cartoons thru the web in other states as my son is in the military , and moves from time to time .....
Pros: easy to transfer files, once setup easy to access IN NETWORK .... all in all a good unit to centralize your files
Cons: manual does not tell you how to set up the settings, or what settings will do ... all it says is " once you check the settings you want .. click ok " ... there are video's to help you set up your network ... accessing outside network is still not possible without 3rd party help ...

Excerpt: This device has exceeded my expectations on the iSCSI connection side. I have connected to a VM running server 2008 R2 and it is performing very well. Was a little disappointed when only saw 2.6 TB available, but then felt better once I realized it was due to the built RAID array configuration.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, inexpensive, Quality Construction, Reliable
