Slick Unit but Quality is Lacking!

Draw4Luv "Luv2Draw", Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: Great Idea, Awful Quality! Who wouldn't want a dual-drive server for media storage and back-ups?! I did! And my first NAS 220 worked well for a couple of years, set us a mirrored array (RAID 1), so that anything on one of the 1 Tb drives was also copied exactly to the other.

Poor firmware and performance

Charles C., Amazon
30 July 2014
  • 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.

DO NOT BUY SEAGATE BLACK ARMOR! ALL DATA LOST AFTER 60 DAYS of USE!! :(

Lonnie A Freiburger Jr., Amazon
22 February 2014
  • 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.

CIFS and NFS a little flakey

Richard B, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • 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.

Bad news

David C. Menges, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: In the two years we've had this NAS, it has been generally unreliable and has failed twice. The first time it was replaced. The second failure appears to have lost all our data. Shame on me for not taking precautions (or not having time to), but no, I cannot recommend this product.

Does not work with active directory

a wiseman, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • Summary: The black armour 220 nas DOES not support active directory even though it says it does in the spec. You need to be on a domain controller older than 2008... Seagate sent a replacement business nas business storage 2 bay nas which also does not support Active directory their current firmware does not...

  • Summary: Seagate continues to make the WORST software of any storage device I have ever owned. I bought the BlackArmor NAS 220 with the hopes of having it up and running quicky. WRONG, just spent my entire Saturday trying to get it to work.

awful

Ernie Banks, Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: This drive ships with their own software: BlackArmor Discovery and BlackArmor Manager. Both are terrible. I wanted a network drive that could act as a file repository to be shared among the people in our small office.
