Don't think that your data is safe!

Gerald M., Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: Yesterday was the second crash I had with this unit. The E04 error is bad but the E06 error for Lost Boot image is even worse. Many gigs have been lost. What's even worse, the USB ports on the back that you can use to hook an external hard drive to use a format that isn’t readable by Windows. I believe that its Linux based if I can believe the totally clueless person that I talked to on the phone after calling their help line. Oh yea...

Horrible support

Anonymous, Newegg
24 January 2014
  • Summary: Going to try Synology next time. May not be better, but can't be worse. If they aren't better, I'm just going to build it myself. What a pain.
  • Pros: Please.
  • Cons: Good grief their support is the worst I've ever experienced. The only response you get is the automated ones.

We had to send 2 back to get 1 that works.

  • Summary: Seems to work good but we had to waste 3 weeks of having server promlems to get 1 that worked. We got 1 and installed it. It took us about a week before we realized it wasn't working properly. So we ordered another one so we could stay running when we sent it back. Got the second 1 and it worked great so sent the first one back for a replacement. Got the third one and it didn't work either. So we had to send it back.

Don't waste your money

JD, Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this Terastation III Rack Mount device about a year ago and have NEVER been able to get it to work reliably. I just upgraded to the latest and greatest firmware v1.57 and AD authentication is still a no go. The only way anyone can access the device is if all access restrictions are disabled... i.e AD authentication breaks it! Sure it can get a list of users and groups from AD and you can give them permissions but you can never login from a workstation.

Toss these if you have them

William A., Newegg
2 July 2012
  • Pros: Good price point if you don't care about unstable services and unreliable backups and recoveries...
  • Cons: Have two of these as well as a couple of the like designed iSCSI units. Total junk. We bought in big last Fall and have discovered that they are very high maintenance and the support people are of no help. Twice we have had units lose a drive and not be able to rebuild a RAID 5. Backup support through local USB is flaky at best. Drops connections to Windows authentication weekly... generally just a pain. Better off putting up a simple linux server or windows 2008 stor...
