Showing 1-10 of 27
"Runs fantastically and at a low price."
26 April 2013
Pros: SAMBA server, dlna server. full root access so you can install any package through apt-get. fast sata controller (not a budget usb attached device) OS runs mounted on a ram drive which saves power and boosts speed.
Cons: built in torrent client doesn't support private trackers.
Pros: Can enable ssh and do advanced linux stuff on the drive.
Cons: SMB hangs or drops. AFP seems more reliable (good thing I'm mostly a mac user). Always wakes the drive up so power save mode doesn't work very well. UPNP media server works well. I use for time machine and windows backups, media server.
Cons: Printer server doesn't work. Slow operation and management. Was unable to use it as a cloud. Was unable to use it for remote access. 500 GB of the space suddenly became occupied, though I only used about 100GB.
"Looks good, very quite, easy to step up, no issues"

Pros: Support gigabit network, I get about 30+ mb/sec writes to the NAS and faster reads Well priced Runs my USB Printer Likes the extra USB port
Cons: avg performance (noticeable speed increase after firmware update) Sometimes drive will stop working if many computers would read and write at the same time (again this is not a problem after the update)
"Works sometimes, pain to keep going, incredibly slow"

Pros: It works most of the time and the html interface is workable
Cons: Keeps bugging me for passwords every 15 minutes. When I deselect security altogether, it doesn't work with TimeMachine. Usable for backup but not for files you use all the time. It is way, way to slow for that. Changing settings takes ages too.
