Best non-enterprise device out there

Jeffrey S., Newegg
10 July 2011
  • Summary: This is the best NAS out there period. It has all the features and speed of all the others put together. The interface is clean and very well put together. The lack of a warranty is huge but the features and the quality of the device outweigh it.
  • Pros: This device is LOADED with features. Quiet: For 8 drives and the fans, this is surprisingly quiet Fast: Put it this way, when I was copying files to it from my laptop with an SSD, it was the GigE that was the bottleneck, not the device.

Nice upgrade vs Readynas

Stephen G., Newegg
13 January 2011
  • Summary: If it had a 3 year warrentee it would have 5 stars. This is fast and flexable. I like the thin provisioning on the ISCSI a lot!!
  • Pros: Web interface with NAS stats. Fast. Nic bonding. Thin provisioning ISCSI. What is not to like? Lots of great features. SMART monitoring. Full drive testing BEFORE adding to array. That helps with new and used drives. Makes a quality raidset. RAID6!!! A must for SATA drives.
  • Cons: Slow rebuild time. Slow drive expansion times. 1 year warrentee. :( PS3 media streaming can only be done from default directory. BAckups to esata and USB are limited to top level directories only. They need to go deeper in directory tree.
