Summary: NAS failed to alert that a drive failed. It should generate alarm, warning, or something to indicate that a drive has failed. So if you think you are safe because your NAS is on mirrored RAID, think again.
Summary: we still using this NAS Storage at office for more than three years and still work great except that we have to restart it once or twice every week. I highly recommend it if you want it to store your files.

Summary: So I bought this device so I'd never loose data from a hard drive failure, however that idea didn't work out for me. The unit stopped working and the drives were corrupted. I am unable to read the drives through a Linux Reader on my windows 8 machine. Seagate informed me they would replace the unit but the data is on me to get restored for about $1000. A company that sells backup products should stand by their products.
Summary: I'm currently using this NAS, firmware version: 2013.60311. There is currently no update available. - Mounting this drive on a Linux machine using CIFS seems to cause the NAS to dump it's CIFS permission settings altogether. - NFS doesn't seem to be running on the machine, even for shared folders with it enabled. - The web interface is sluggish. - Managing the file permissions is dicey. It's probably okay for home use, under 5 users.
