Summary: Works just fine for a small home media server. I have it operating in mirror mode (RAID 1). The only issue I've seen with it is that it lost it's IP address after a power failure, on 2 separate occasions. Other than that, it's worked well.

Even when the device is off for long period of time the drives are pretty warm. After upgrading the firmware to 3.18.4, there’s no way to set the time. The older firmware allowed ...
