Pros: This product is simple to use and setup, it can easiely be reached via the web anywhere.
Cons: The 1T drive can be added to but only with the same sized hard drive, I wanted to add 2T but found I had to replace the 1T drive first, next time I can add another 2T drive. It regularly kicks the other computers off the wireless router and the router n
"Didn't last 1 year and inconsistent connection issues"
28 February 2011
Pros: Smooth playback, good and fast.
Cons: Web interface seems to require internet access. I can circumvent this shortcoming but can those less tech savvy do this? Random connection issues. I have 2 network storage boxes and the older of the two had less issues.
Pros: Easy set up and maintenance, RAID 1, DLNA server, easy to use. Plenty of space. Relatively inexpensive. Hooked up to a wireless router, it was recognized by the Network enabled TV and was much faster for slideshows etc.
Cons: I've found the back up (Desktop mirror) to be so so. You are really better off using the Stora as your main media server and for backing up important documents.
Summary: Small, quiet, slick... A Storage xmas present to get all our digital pictures and movies in one central location. This should restore the frozen disk space on our personal laptop! Looking FW:, when we start pushing the TB capacity on our Stora, I'll probably throw in the mirror for the long haul (which I'mn expecting stable Stora performance for at least 3-5 years...)or I'll have to start clearing Stora space via CD's. TBD.
Pros: This product is easy to set up. I backed up my important files easily. I tested out accessing my files from my iPhone and a remote computer and everything works fine. For the price, this is well worth it. The NAS runs quiet and cool.
Cons: 19.99/year subscription for premium remote access to your files.
