"Extremely slow transfer, high file system overhead"

cnet111tenc, CNET
25 November 2013
  • Pros: it's black.
  • Cons: extremely slow transfer rate, even with a gb switch and a gb cable. I believe this is due to the inefficient file system (it has to be).

"a waste of money"

  • Pros: maybe price
  • Cons: horribly slow. Copying and deleting takes for ever. Poor documentation & support. replacing a mulfunction HD doesn't work as documented and demand backingup all volume, and re-creating a RAID1 volume. about 3 days of work for 3TB of storage.

  • Excerpt: Originally purchased this as a "Noah's Ark" for my data while my family migrated from PCs to Macs. I wanted at least 1 TB of storage, a good backup solution, compatibility with Time Machine, the ability to replace a physical drive in a RAID if it went bad, and the ability to connect to my home...

"Nice concept, terrible results -- way too slow"

Alanrc21, CNET
4 August 2011
  • Pros: The concept of Network Access Storage is great. The BlackArmor NAS does connect to my home LAN easily, and it is seen in the network as another computer.
  • Cons: As other posters have mentioned, the throughput is AWFUL!! I have a Gigabit router, a Gigabit switch, and I spent over two hours troubleshooting the setup and downloading the latest firmware. When I try to transfer files to the BlackArmor, it starts out

"Slow as can be"

bsesf, CNET
13 May 2011
  • Pros: Price is OK. Features are attractive
  • Cons: Documentation is out of date. Setup is hard to figure out. Worst of all, it's stupidly slow. My old NAS was MUCH faster than this. It's still online so it's not a network problem. Black Armor is just garbage.

  • Summary: Received the 2TB Black armor within 2 days of my order which was really fast. The Armor was easy to set up and performs very well. It does not get hot and meets all my requirements for extra storage. A very good value.

"Excellent security and software backup from Seagate."

jcfsusmc, CNET
2 May 2010
  • Pros: Backups are not encoded so you can get to them with your file explorer. 256 AES option. The software is unique, easy to understand, and works! MUCH faster than any other portable USB HD. Doesn't bother you with pop-ups you already know about.
  • Cons: You need to input your machine user password in order to encrypt. I'm not a big fan of having only one password for important items. Maybe I missed the workaround memo... Not the cheapest choice, maybe you get what you pay for? We'll see.
