AVOID!

audio, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
5 January 2014
  • Summary: This device was, when purchased, as servicable NAS. After the latest update, however, it is UNUSABLE as a full featured network storage device. There is no support for basic features like RAID1 or JBOD. From what I can see, there is no way to map two drives at the same time. As a result, only one of my 3TB drives are being used. AVOID AT ALL COSTS! IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER VERSION OF THE FIRMWARE (2660 or prior) DO NOT UPDATE TO THE NEW FIRMWARE!

Mac Users Avoid !!

  • Summary: Not a Mac friendly product. To use with OSX Lion you have to install the new interface and firmware which requires you to re-format the disks and the process can only be done from a Windows machine. Those that don't have a windows machine get half a system which isn't recognized by the finder, cannot burn a Bu-Ray disc and requires you to purchase iSCSI as a separate product. There are much better products which actually work.

Beware don't buy if you use Lion

  • Summary: I purchased this unit a week before Lion was released to the public. One of the main purposes of purchasing this unit was to use Time Machine to back up my 3 Macs. LG has been known to have good technical support and promised an update in September. Here it is in the middle of November and the firmware is still not available. When talking with Tech Support on live update I was informed once again that they were working on it but the newer units have an updated firmware.

  • Summary: This is my 1st NAS unit & I am thrilled with its' performance and feature set. I purchased this unit primarily for media storage with backing up data as a 2nd overall need. The unit was nicely packaged and setup was a snap. All menu driven via web browser, I had it up & running with firmware updates within 45 minutes.
  • Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality

Not bad

  • Summary: Plug the box onto the network and install the supplied software - quite simple really. Only niggle at the moment is that I can't seem to access the Blu Ray writer from the host PC to write data not on the disks in the device.
  • Pros: Performance, Style/Design, Quality

Needs Work

  • Summary: I was impressed with this unit as soon as I took it out of the box. This unit is of quailty build and extremely attractive and has many bells and whistle to make it a worthy addtion to a network, but LG has made the fatal flaw, poor documentation. The unit's documentation is woefully inadequate. This unit is not plug n' play out of the box and trouble shooting this unit is very difficult without more precise information.
  • Pros: Style/Design, Quality, features
  • Cons: Difficult to use, settings, poor documentation

Disappointed

BoomerTN, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
16 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the N2B1DD2 to use as a backup device for a PET scanner which produces 20-50 Gbytes of data per study. Unfortunately the Windows 2003 Server Edition is not able to mount the NAS share (works with XP or Linux). This is a definite problem and the support access from the LGE website is not usable. The only thing I could find that seems to work is this review so I'll try to put my concerns here in hopes that someone from LGE will see them and reply.
  • Pros: Quality, Style/Design
