Summary: Just got it today, so far, love it. Pro's: Seems to be faster than my dead WD My Book II with reading and writing. Drives are easy to install, I used WD 1tb Blues Easy to install new drives... NO TOOLS REQUIRED! (comes with mounting brackets) Once in web interface, it defaults to "Favorite Features", click on All Features and see a ton of other things this thing can do... WOW!
Summary: I set up the NAS with (2) WD 3TB Red labels from Lenovo's approved HDD list. After a couple of hours I noticed soon that the temps were higher than I liked (CPU 80°C & Motherboard 63°C). My primary issue however, was that the device's web portal would become non-responsive after running for a day or two. Even the mechanical "Off" button on the back wouldn't respond. The only way to reboot was to disconnect the power.
Best in class select your own 2 disk NAS I have seen.

Summary: Works great in a mixed client environment with Windows, Mac, and Linux clients! One of the most versatile NAS I have ever seen since it can be used to host TFTP, NFS and anything else you might need all in one box. This + a router flashed with DNSMASQ and you can build your own thin client environment! I've been running with with 2 2GB WD Green drives and performance is very consistent with reading and writing across gigabit!
Summary: No instructions on how to insert disk drives could be found. A web search found a review that mentioned how to open up the unit to insert the drives. I'm using this as a network attached disk drive accessed using drive letter Z:. Windows 7 does not keep credentials needed to automatically access the drive at boot time, requiring a login to it before using it for storage.
Summary: I bought this thinking if would be a just one step up from adding a USB drive to my router and using it for backup. Wow, what a surprise! This thing is AWESOME. It has SAMBA, NFS, DLNA, RSYNC, FTP, Transmission, so many features I haven't even played with them all. This deserves something like 20 stars, it is that good.
