Summary: I will pretext this review by saying I really like the ix2-200s. I actually bought the standard (non-Cloud Edition) unit several years ago in the UK for very cheap and upgraded it myself to the more expensive and expansive CE version.

Summary: I've had this NAS for over 2 years now and it works great. I have it streaming media, filesharing via torrents and I even hooked it up to my IP cam for recording. Easy to set up if you have a basic knowledge of IP addressing.

Summary: So far so good. Use it for Picture, video, Movie, music storage for Windows Media Center. Easy to set up I can easily stream 2 movies off the device at the same time, with no issues. Have not tried a lot of the Bells and whistles yet.
Summary: The device is more than necessary for my simple needs of allowing the computers in my network to backup their daily changes. Nonetheless, it offers many sophisticated capabilities that a SMB would appreciate.
