Some issues, hopefully unique

Glen S., Newegg
31 July 2012
  • Summary: Looking forward to trying again. LG tech support seem surprised by the behavior of the first unit. So surprised that they are consulting with their Korean factory.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Easy set up of those parts that work. Attractive web-based interface.
  • Cons: First one does not recognize the attached UPS and resets its time/date after midnight. RMA in progress for a second attempt. Does not support Windows NT domains, although it supports Active Directory - important to my particular environment and not made clear in the product description.

SWEET !!!

Anonymous, Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Pros: Sweet NAS! Fairly simple setup, MANY options. Also comes w/remote access/ online backup features. Keep your stuff at home instead of paying for online storage. Buy these and charge other people (hehe). LG has others with BluRay or DVD drives or hotswap HDD. ALL Sweet! We've got like fifteen of th...
  • Cons: I've got NO cons!

DONT BUY

Burke P., Newegg
18 April 2012
  • Pros: There are literally none.
  • Cons: This thing is a heap. I've never once been able to leave it on, it will fall asleep and never wake up. It has to be forced off and turned back on. It crashes all the time and drops off the network when transferring files. It's painfully slow. Support is non-existent. I've called LG probably 20 ti...

Love NAS

Kenneth D., Newegg
17 January 2012
  • Pros: I've had this product for almost a year and love it. It is easy to setup and works great as iTunes server with my 3 computers/apple tv (xbmc). This is the perfect solution for me and gets the job done.
  • Cons: Support for this product on LG's website is confusing at best. Hopefully they'll update their system before I run into any problems.

Good but not good enough

Richard W., Newegg
9 December 2011
  • Summary: If LG support helped me fix/repair the device and the media center used my folder structure when viewing it from a remote device (PS3, etc), I would have kept it.
  • Pros: It has some great features such as the torrent downloader, FTP interface, and creating user accounts. Easy to setup and a good price for the amount of space.
  • Cons: One drive had errors when I set it up and LG support was terrible. The media center is not that great. If you only have a couple of movies, pictures, and music it's fine. It ignores your folder structure and just indexes your files and puts them in a flat structure. Very annoying. The web page an...

Loving it

Brian F., Newegg
2 December 2011
  • Pros: Had it for a day now and played with the thing for hours already. The web interface and hardware as a whole are very fast. The options and features (web server, mysql server, torrent downloader, full access control, etc) are plentiful and well done for a NAS. Cannot complain for what you get at s...
  • Cons: When first plugged in, the NAS boots up fine and I can see it on the network, however, the Installation Wizard is no good. Constantly fails to sucessfully "setup" everything. I just went to the NAS IP and used the web interface after trying a few times. Also, the NAS doesn't do well when forwarde...

Stay away from this

Kautilya R., Newegg
6 November 2011
  • Summary: Stay away and buy another product. I'm wondering if I should just use a cloud based storage system and avoid the headache.
  • Pros: Nothing but the low price
  • Cons: Terrible user interface. DDNS doesn't work, poor customer service from the manufacturer, iTunes server doesn't work, print server doesn't work. When I called the company several times, the rep said they would email me a fix. Never emailed me. I then had to write the company for a response. You wo...

Good Nas

Kevin L., Newegg
26 July 2011
  • Summary: I swapped out my Seagate GoFlex with this one and I am much happier. The reason I was considering this drive is so I could move my iTunes library off of my external usb drive and have the ability to access my music w/o attaching a drive to my laptop.
  • Pros: Easy to setup, lots of features, good size, doesn't charge you to add additional users. Fast when setup properly (I used Raid 0 because speed was my priority). The software was able to automatically open ports on my router which was awesome. (I know how to do this but i didn't need to)Tech suppor...
  • Cons: I did e-mail their tech support because I was getting slow write speeds and they didn't give the correct response. the online file system (through the browser) was a bit wonky but I can see why its there.

Does not support AD, Newegg site incorrect

Brian G., Newegg
22 June 2011
  • Pros: I have another LG NAS (different model) which has served me very well for over a year. I suspect this product would have done the same. However, the NewEgg website incorrectly lists the model as supporting Active Directory integration. However, this model does not support it. If you are looking f...

Good NAS

Benjamin S., Newegg
15 May 2011
  • Summary: I have not tried hooking up an external HDD as extra storage. I also have not tried DLNA feature.
  • Pros: Device works well. Set up was quick and simple out of the box. LG provides some software which is mostly bloatware. I only used 1 of 4 of their suggested software to connect, detect, and manage content on the NAS. Easy FTP and web server set up. I manged to get wordpress working on it. It was eas...
  • Cons: I was reading one review online that you cannot reformat the drives or format new (and larger) drives to work in this NAS. I'm not needing a lot of storage so I figured this would not be a problem.
