Summary: At its core, this product is meant to act as a storage device and it has some additional bells and whistles on it that adds utility (it will share USB devices in the network, cloud storage and access) Problems: - BIG PROBLEM - The controller OS is on the harddrives. Its not firmware on the case.
Summary: Just so you know, I'm an IT proferssional and spent a significant time evaluating this drive before buying. However I'm very disappointed in its actual performance. Have had this NAS for over a year.
Summary: I purchased this device in the hopes of storing all of my digital content on it, then accessing them via the wireless network. I went as far as storing music and photos on the device and trying to access them via iPhoto and iTunes.
Summary: i should have purchased a different array, between the 4 hdd replacements, and the WHOLE unit exchange, and there Android app being a peice of SHIT. trying to get tech support. SUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! enough said
Summary: I've had my 4TB model for a while and set it up as a Raid 1 in order to provide some peace of mind for storage of music, videos, software, and other documents. 1. Main problem with this device as others have mentioned is that this thing is LOUD.
Summary: I wanted reliable backup storage for MacBook and iMac. I bought two of these drives so one could be off-site. Product did not work on Lion or Mountain Lion. I could get some access but Time Machine did not work and iPhoto and Aperture files could not be read from the Iomega file format.
Summary: It works fine from home, which is where the unit is located. However, my better-half has spent many, many hours trying to keep this thing accessible from our work computers at the office, all to no avail. It's simply unusable unless we're at home, which is where we rarely need it.
Summary: When I read the characteristics of this product, I thought it would be great. The first months, everything worked ok. Files and music there was very comfortable. But then, when I requested more from the unit, I started to see its performance. Slow... Really slow! Not a great unit for video.
