Pros: Love this thing. Have it set up as a RAID 5 and it is pretty bulletproof after almost two years of heavy use.
Cons: Sometimes the time gets off, requiring you to login and change it. Also, when using in a Windows domain environment and using folders that are restricted to certain users, if one of those users changes their password they lose access to that folder until you change their password on the TeraStati...
Summary: Sorry NewEgg but this sale went to CxW. They had if for $100+ dollars cheaper. I still love ya NewEgg. better luck next time.

Summary: Background (you can skip), I have been on a quest for the last 7 to 8 years, as the amount of data I carried over from computer to computer kept increasing. At some point you are unable to distinguish garbage and duplication from valuable files so you keep on growing your pile of bits.
Summary: Received my Terastation a little over a week ago and had it set up and running in less than a half an hour. The server connection to my ethernet was automatic with absolutely no problem. Software installation took no more than 5 minutes and was very intuitive.
Summary: I am an IT manager working for a group of companies, and have been using these devices for about 2 years. We run 22 of them 24/7, that's 88 hard drives. We have had two of those drives fail in that time, but as they are raid 5, you just replace the dead drive, and rebuild.
