great debian server
16 January 2014
Summary: Since this little box runs straight debian linux under the hood it's very powerful. I'm using it not only as a NAS at work to back up our machines, but also as the DHCP/DNS server, openvpn server, network monitoring device, etc. And if hacking your NAS doesn't interest you, it also performs very nicely as a stand-alone NAS with a simple web interface.
Summary: This NAS really ties the home network nicely...including live music streaming through Logitech Squeezebox. File transfer is fast through USB3. Its like having a 4Gb hard drive in each computer in the house. Highly recommended.
Summary: I use it to backup information on several PC's. The software is rather hard to work with but it meets my needs for backing up systems. Great for anyone that has lost data they needed to retrieve.
Summary: This NAS is what I was looking for and much more. The features are far more than what I was expecting. I added two W.D. 3 TB drives along with a 3 TB USB drive connected to the USB port. All my computers are set to back up to this NAS. Everything works as advertised. Before I purchased, I had read a few reviews that were negative.
Summary: I had no trouble installing the disks, setting it up, and migrating everything over from my old IOmega StoreCenter NAS. Because of prior experience, I knew what I wanted to do and could find the features I needed in their attractive user interface. Admittedly, some things are not documented, such as the need to reset the permissions on shares after using rsync. But it was in the GUI, and fairly obvious. I've not tried any advanced features.
Summary: This unit has become the backbone of my home network. I use it store all of our family pictures, files and software. I also use it store weekly and monthy backups for all my PC's. I have it configured with with (2) 2TB Western Digital Drives. I recommend it to anyone in need of a large network storage device.
