Summary: Had minor trouble at first, but now it is not working at all. Created one share that I could not access and could not delete. Also could not delete some file folders in my public share. Used it for over a year, now it just keeps re-booting over and over again. Tried a new power supply, no help.
Summary: very minimal use, and the drive died after 3.5 years, just past the limited warranty expired. the smart drive thing told me that is was going to fail so I was able to move files before it completely crapped out kept running into issues where the discovery program that would map it to my computer...
Summary: it worked fine for about close to year but not quite and it completely crashed on me. I called Seagate to have it restored but they said it would cost at least 600 to recover. Not happy AT ALL!
Summary: My GoFlex with USB 3.0 gets 9-10 times the throughput as this NAS 110 unit using a 10/100/1000 router. The only downer with GoFlex is no web access, would love this if it had local switchable USB 3.0 access. Must return this unit as the web access is not worth the slow speed.
Pros: The availability of Inet access and amount of storage is great. USB 2.0 ports nice but need more data about using them in the literature.
Cons: The slow access speed using a 10/100/1000 is not tolerable! Seagate tech service is getting lousy after being a 20 year Seagate fan, sends bad web links on email. Makes a person go chasing their tail for extended period before getting even an incorrect answer. Get too many incorrect answers to si...

Summary: **Update** May 13, 2012 A few months ago, I lost all access to this NAS. My backups were failing, which was the first alert I had to a problem. Unable to access the NAS through a web browser or the BlackArmor Discovery software, I rebooted it.
Summary: If you know there are problems with the unit, I suggest being a bit more liberal with customer satisfaction. Seagate should pay for the shipping and allow upgrades if the customer requests it. I was willing to pay for it afteall!
Pros: Good speed getting files from unit. Good sotrage for my needs. Was looking for extra storage but the back up feature was a nice add on.
Cons: Had to return first unit because one of the disks failed. Seagate makes you pay for the shipping! Not my fault the thing died! Couldn't get Global Access to work on the second unit. Tech support was very helpful. But she advised there was a problem with the second unit (which they knew was a comm...
Summary: I was really happy with the NAS 110 when it worked. Easy to set up and worked great with both my Mac's and Windows PC's, until it stopped working less than 30 days after I bought it. It now continiously reboots. I am getting a replacement and will give it another try.
Summary: My first installation worked fine, but when i tried to change some settings on safari, it hanged and there was no response, so I had to reset the drive. After the second installation, I accessed the drive from Finder ('connect to server' command (ftp://192.168.x.x) and was able to play media files...
Summary: So I purchased one of these, hoping I could make it a redundant backup for photos/music/etc. It's convoluted to setup, and once it is, you can only use the software to backup other drives/info TO it. So once the "hard drive" (I assume it's a bad controller) failed, I have no way to get to the drive.
