Terrific NAS for the price. Great reliability. A few rough software edges at first but then flawless for over 4 years!

Summary: I have had one of these running 24/7 since January 2010. There were a few firmware glitches in the first month or so that produced false heat warnings but the unit worked fine even then. After a firmware update it has been running and in daily use for over 4 years. Not the fastest unit by 2014 standards I guess but good enough for backups. A 67GB disk image back up takes about 75 minutes.
Summary: Really like the 2TB, dual-RAID configuration. Before we got a UPS, it also shut down a few times during inadvertent power losses. Received an email, and there were no problems upon power-up. We've had this running strong for over a year, and had no issues. The apps are OK--some better than other. Its also a bit tedious to update the firmware. Overall, I would strongly recommend this NAS.
Summary: I use this as a central storage device for my home network to store pics, music and documents. For that it is great. It was easy to set up for a relative non computer person and have never stopped working. It was in my room and wasn't too loud but now it is in the basement. I tried to set it up to remotely access it though the internet but apparently you have to pay for that. I would buy another one.
Summary: I am very impressed and happy with the product so far. The installation and set up was very easy. I have been able to connect to it via all my devices, itouch, iPad, pc's, and ps 3. I have not set up back up feature yet. I did had to call tech support to set up access to media server when I am traveling. When accessed during traveling data streaming speed is very slow. I am not sure it is a internet connection issue. I would like to find a solution to speed it up.
Summary: This is my first network storage device in my house after years of buying standalone solutions that needed to be attached to computer. The big reasons I bought this device was price and brand. I read reviews and saw a lot of positive and negative feedback. I have NOT experienced any of the negative issues (sound, startup, etc.). It works GREAT! I have all my computers using it -- iMAC, 2 vista PC's, and my linux box.
Summary: I am very pleased with this product. It was easy to hook up, good quality and I have no issues whatsoever. Excellent storage for people that do a lot of video and photos that take up a lot of space.
