Summary: Fairly fast 16 to 17Mbs on gigabit lan at least it's fast enough for me - wireless transfer rate is another story though. Setup a static IP address and network recognized it right away with install disk. Changed USB storage to 10gig.
Pros: Quiet - seems to awake from standby fairly fast.
Cons: Poor documentation. Had to research for PS3 to recognize it. DLNA appears to make virtual folders - not sure how to store in.
Summary: I got this NAS for my wife who is a graphic designer. She is always carrying around her external USB drives with her MAC laptop and they always seem to get disconnected and fall to the ground, ouch! This is a great simple NAS for us at home.
Pros: 1. Very easy installation 2. Well built and quiet! 3. Web interface is very user friendly and easy to navigate 4. External remote access (DDNS feature) is awesome
Cons: 1. Nothing major, the User Guide could have been better (Poor grammer/english). 2. Once installed, you have to be somewhat techy to start using it. I had to do a web search on how to connect the MAC to the NAS but found it right away.
Summary: I really like this NAS. The previous reviewer complaining about the 100G-400G usb partition is not warranted. It can be reduced to 10G and besides it also can be accessed over the network too.
Pros: Does what I want, streaming videos to my media players; mostly bug-free too. HTTP menus are clean, easy to figure out. Good security, with users & groups, maybe only 1 admin though. Fairly quick, writing to HD is buffered. DVD burner is a nice extra, and useful to get content on the NAS.
Cons: Torrent feature is not for initial seeding. Need to go through an orderly shut down- don't pull the plug to shut off. The Ajax file explorer is slow to copy/move small files.
Summary: Please create a download section LG on you website. This product may be new but you need to put up the software just in case us techies need it and cant find our disks. p.s. the OS and local USB storage take up almost 200gb.
Pros: 1) Super great price 2) Great web management 3) more options than I expected. You can create multiple users, setup each user with their own individual rights. 4) It's fast 5) very well built 6) it downloads torrents for you just give it the link! 7) it has power management settings for battery ba...
Cons: Only con I think there is that there can only be one admin and you can not create an admin group. So I have to share my password with my friend if he needs to help me with it.
Excerpt: Neulich kommt mir eine Email ins Postfach geflattert. „Produkttester gesucht“ weitergeleitet von Ciao. Weitergeleitet von Ciao? Ja, ein Marktforschungsunternehmen bietet mir an das neue NAS von LG Electronics zu testen. NAS? Das muß ich erst mal googeln. Aha, ein Netzwerkspeicher und Backupsystem.
Excerpt: Im Zeitalter der ständig verfügbaren Multimediainhalte und der fast flächendeckenden Anbindung an das schnelle Internet haben großvolumige externe Speichermedien eine rasant Marktentwicklung erlebt.
