Summary: Because of the fantastic features this box promises to be a great 2nd home server. I hope the replacement functions Ok.
Pros: Fantastic features including a wizard that sets up a website to access your storage from the internet. Nice GUI menu structure. Firmware is similar to FreeNAS and NAS 4Free but with easier and faster to setup. You don't need to build PC with the expense of CPU, memory and a case.
Cons: The box I received had password and setup issues. After 3 days of repeated resets I finally got the box to setup. When I tried to make changes, the menus in the Windows-GUI failed to function. A complete reset was required erasing the setup options and HD. I returned the system to Newegg for exch...
Summary: Good NAS, just be warned that the fan can get loud
Pros: Pretty Fast Transfer Speed.... I get about 20-25 MB/sec... Easy Setup Supports 3TB
Cons: This thing is LOUD. Not a big deal for me, since I have this in a separate room, however If you want this for a Movie server, and this is going in the same room as your TV, it could get annoying When you are not accessing it for streaming HD movies, it is quiet
Summary: Unit arrived in perfect condition. Setup was a bit more difficult than I expected. Instructions are not the best, online help is a little thin, so had do kind of do things by trial and error. Included install software was way out of date and hung near the end.
Summary: For what it is this DNS-320 s great for a high capacity backup. No secret encoding and easy to use. I am only using one 3TB Western Green Drive and so far so good. I just had to update the firmware so it would recognize the 3TB when formatting. Looks clean and is quiet.
Pros: Price, ease of install, low noise, easy to configure
Cons: Wish the firmware was updated prior to shipping. Firmware was dated 2010.
Pros: The gigabit LAN works wonderfully once you set it to 1000 base manual (in the NAS settings) I get about 60-85Mb/s with my Win7 tower (gigabit) and my Airport Extreme (gigabit), I mainly use AFP, SMB, and the web portal. You can manage the shares and users easily via the web portal, and set access...
Cons: The P2P built in client, does not support magnet but does support .torrent files, but that could be addressed in a software update, along with hopefully more optimization since it utilizes a lot of the system ram.
Summary: This is a great Share Center, it does what it says it does and works great.
Pros: It does what it says it does, the upnp works great, the basic file sharing works great, with the new firmware the 3TB drives work fine too. The speed of transfer speeds for me are 10 (MB / s) = 80 Mbit / s, so the speed of my 100Mbit connection are been used. I just need to upgrade to a Gbit rout...
Cons: I would like to be able to add a data transfer limit per user, but I'm sure this can be added in a future firmware update.
Summary: Overall very easy to use. Nice web interface. FTP is a great feature. I am only using this to backup my family photos. Going to setup FTP on my iphone and ipad tonight and make sure this works.
Pros: Easy setup AFTER firmware was updated. Updated the firmware wireless over N network even though they do not recommend this. Easy physical setup. Quiet. Gigabit ethernet is a big plus!
Cons: Power button wasnt clearly labeled. Initially thought this was broken. Wasted 30 minutes on powering this up. NIC link lights do not turn on until unit power is on. Didnt ship with latest firmware. Cannot secure drives with screws.
Summary: Bought this about 10 months ago. It was easy to set up and share. We were using it to backup our computers quickly. We don't use the other features, and I tried to set up the media share for iTunes but I didn't find out how to use it with our computers.
