Do not buy - You will be disappointed

WZRD, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: I am an IT professional, I own 4 NAS devices, this is the newest, I purchased on sale new about 11 months ago. About a week ago, I found it shut down on its own wit the following error "Boot Failure [1C_00]" I called LG support, I am within the 1 year warranty, they told me they don't support NAS...

Avoid this product

mypenname, Amazon
23 February 2012
  • Summary: I have had this product for 6 days and it failed on day 5. It says the RPM on the CPU fan is too low. I contacted tech support with an error code and they indicated I had to re-install the software on the system. That is when I found the error message trying to reconfigure the system.

Doesn't support hidden folders

Ted C., Newegg
13 October 2011
  • Summary: I have some annoyances with my QNAP, but at least it doesn't do silly things like the above. Note: you can enable ssh via a third-party firmware (search tantalus) but that's a bit beyond what I want to mess with on my NAS.
  • Pros: Pretty and cute status beeps
  • Cons: - Turns out this is a lemon if you need to store linux-style 'hidden' folders that start with the period (eg .svn) The SMB config they're using on the NAS will automatically unlist all dot folders. - no ssh access to even attempt fixing this. - Other review sites have mentioned this, but the iSCS...

Won't join a domain but nice little enclosure.

Joel P., Newegg
10 August 2011
  • Summary: LG was helpful but the claims they advertise for joining AD domain would probably be considered fraudulent. Returned unit. Thank you NewEgg for working with me regarding restocking fee.
  • Pros: Nice looking. Cool features. Quiet and small. Probably works great in a workgroup environment. Newegg.
  • Cons: Won't join a domain. We have a domain running Windows 2008 R2 but it wouldn't accept any credentials to join the domain. You consistently get this error LGNAS logger: [SET_DOMAIN] RESULT=2: Execution fail Wrong ID/PW. LG website had great instructions on how to add the device to AD domain but fai...

Works great with some modifications

Todd P., Newegg
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I put 2 2TB Samsung F4's in this with no problem. 3rd party firmware (google Tantalus N2R1 firmware) enhances this unit wonderfully. dlna streaming sucks for Xbox 360 until you set up Twonkymedia for the NAS and then its a dream. Really glad I purchased this.
  • Pros: Excellent Construction Performs well for price point Many options Good forum support if you speak German <g> 18-20mb transfers. Acceptable for my application. Playon works well with this.
  • Cons: Documentation could be better. LG Support should be better. Standard firmware doesn't play nice with Xbox360

Great NAS

Anonymous, Newegg
14 December 2010
  • Summary: Not bad features, priced pretty good without the drives but sometimes I think I should have purchased a Windows Home Server instead.
  • Pros: Great features. Hot swappable drive slots. Slapped two 2TB green drives.
  • Cons: A little bit slow on transfer rate. It's connection to my WNDR3700 on GbE connection. I get approximately 5-6MBps copy rate. Could be faster I think. -1 egg for that. -1 for not supporting MKVs for DLNA streaming. User password cannot be complex as I wanted it to be. It will accept them but once ...

Great NAS

Tylor A., Newegg
27 November 2010
  • Pros: 4 bay with preinstalled 4x1TB with bluray burner... must have got it during a sell cause its was a few hundred dollars less then list now. Faster then my current NAS, came preloaded with raid5 but i didnt need it so i converted back to 4 1tb drives.
  • Cons: maybe offer a different color? i cannot find this product on the LG site to check for firmware upgrades.
