Summary: This product exhibits very good performance and design quality. However, it took a call to Technical Support to get it going as my needs are fairly simple in that I just wanted a network drive accessible from several computers on my local network and as such I really didn't need to get into setting up accounts, etc. for remote access. The setup needs to keep simple things simple, and get into the more complex stuff if your needs call for it.
Summary: I needed a NAS that was visible to all my operating systems - several flavors of Linux and A MAC. I also needed a print server. This fitted the perfectly. Just plugged in and booted up.Worked perfectly from the start.
Summary: This products function very well. The support is great. However, I bought the 2gb version, N1A1 NF1, and this unit does not exist on the www.lg.com web site. Which made it next to impossible to register and find online support. Furthermore the documentation on how to access the unit via the internet is poor.

Summary: this device is very easy to use and has so many features the only down side is somewhat difficult to set up and get it going the 4 page installation instructions needs to be extended to about 10 pages including the install for the tablets and iphones, but with a little patience you will get it!! after that your world will change i absolutely love this device!!!
Summary: It's a nice little NAS, works great, looks great, price is right. My only complaint is that the software that comes with it is a complete disaster. The setup software that comes with it is clunky, and mostly useless. It does take more than a little bit of computer savvy to get it set up, this is not a plug and play machine (which I knew from other reviews of this elsewhere). Do not, under any circumstances, install Nero Backitup - the backup software that comes with it.
Summary: I needed a place to store my data since I use several computers from various areas in the house. This product works great and I have no problems with transfers. It is very quiet. Backup function works great and be sure to get the firmware update from the LG website so media share works properly with the PS3 and the XBOX 360. For basic purposes I highly recommend this.
