Even More than Advertised!

Mark Gauldin, Amazon
28 August 2008
  • Summary: What a great little product! Not only does it work great right out of the box as a network storage adapter (which is all it's really advertised as), but it's actually a cheap little Linux server! There's a very active user community online that supports this product - just go to [...

Dirty Little Secret: It's a Linux box!!!

Don Strimbu, Jr., Amazon
11 August 2008
  • Summary: The "Slug" (the affectionate name for the NSLU2) is a small wonder in the world of Linux "PCs". As a dedicated Win32 guy, I was looking for a small PC to replace the power-hogging IBM M-Pro that I used successfully over the last year as a Firefly media server.

Great low power backup NAS drive for running 24x7

Sandun, Amazon
7 May 2008
  • Summary: I got this unit to run as a backup NAS drive and it is perfectly suitable for this purpose, especially since I keep it running 24x7 (it uses very little power). I have this currently attached to a 320GB WD drive (in a Rosewill RX353-S enclosure) and have been using it for a few days now.

Need more stars! Um...read update

Al Swanson, Amazon
5 April 2008
  • Summary: (UPDATE 10-20-08) Yep, it's a great little box. However - and these are big howevers - there are a couple of issues. 1) Mine will not keep the date once rebooted. That's a problem when backup software compares dates. It keeps resetting to 1969!

The little Linux that could!

Lyn Robie, Amazon
4 April 2008
  • Summary: I won't bother to review the NSLU2 as a music server or criticise it because it uses the ext3 file system. I don't really care that Linksys customer support sucks - all customer support for technical stuff like this is pretty abysmal.

Great Network Addition

Frank Moskowitz, Amazon
23 January 2008
  • Summary: This network storage link allows you to plug in two additional storage drives or one drive and one usb memory stick. Since it is attached to your network it is easily accessed from outside your network. Using the ftp rathar then http address of your router allows access from anywhere.

Does exactly what it promises. Great product.

C. Ruppelt, Amazon
17 January 2008
  • Summary: I don't quite get the negative reviews. I am not sure how these folks where able to write their reviews when they were so obviously unable to read when it comes to the print in both the Quickstart sheet and the Manual stating that this product is not compatible with windows and that it needs to...

A great little "roll your own" NAS solution!

W. Walsh, Amazon
30 April 2007
  • Summary: If you're looking at adding more storage to your computer network, there exist many solutions that let you do so. The Linksys NSLU2 is just another method of doing so, but it has an interesting twist.

An Up to Date review - Old reviews no longer relevant

John Jamieson, Amazon
27 January 2007
  • Summary: BACKGROUND While the unit is great, the documentation is not. To be fair to yourself and the unit, you should do a search on the words nslu2 slug and unslung. There is a WEALTH of info online (This is the most important thing I can tell you.) Currently there are two known versions of this product.

Cheap, easy sharing/backup solution

Bruce E. Wampler, Amazon
20 September 2006
  • Summary: I got one of these, added a couple of 400Gig USB drives, plugged it in, and now backup for my home network is trivial, and always done! This is a great bargain for real peace of mind. I have a home network with 6 computers attached.
