Summary: I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and 11.04 and i have no trouble connecting with this NAS device. It works great sometimes it takes a few moments to sync but its hard to say if it is the nas, the computer or the OS. It was easy to set up and easy to use. I highly recommend.
Summary: For many years I used an NAS (Network Attached Storage) so that all of our photos, data, etc is saved on the network and not on each individual machine. I like an NAS device because they use very little power (maybe 30 watts compared to 300 watts for a desktop computer). I used the Western Digital "My Book World" (pretty nice), and the Buffalo Linkstation (even better), but what bothered me about both of these is if someone took the NAS they took all my data!
Summary: This is a great little hard drive, although its getting dated i would buy another one. One great feature that isnt mentioned: the front USB connection snaps off to reveal standard internal hard drive connections. If you need an internal drive, this works great too...
Summary: I use this hard drive almost everyday. I move data, delete, add, move, delete, transfer, and so on all day long. It has never failed me or lost any data so far! This hard drive went on a deployment with me to Iraq for a year. even with all of the dust and sand, it keeps going and going. Very quiet, low vibration. Very good indeed!
Summary: Awesome product, solve all my backup problems, the only thing is the software for doing the actual backups didn't work on my computers, some issue with windows 7 but I downloaded another program and it works excellent.
