Just too difficult for a "novice" to use

RMurray847, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: I'm not a newbie or luddite, by any stretch. I enjoy my electronic toys. I practically live on my computer at work. But I'm not an advanced user, nor can I trot out the terminology. I got this drive thinking it would provide my with a simple, straight-foward home network.

Concept is nice. Reliability iffy

Surprised, Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the second Seagate BlackArmor I have purchased. The first one died. After one month, one of the HD keeps going on the blink, causing automatic restart. After 1 year, one HD died, and the second HD died 4 days later. The first Seagate went to heaven. I bought a replacement.

It's a 2TB drive that sits on the network ... that's about it

John S. Jones, Amazon
26 June 2012
  • Summary: 1) 2TB was reasonably big when I bought this 2-3 years ago, now it's mediocre; can be upgraded to 4TB/2TB RAID of course so that's not so bad 2) DLNA media service has never worked right (firmware build 2000.0601) 3) same build of the firmware had a dangerously bad behavior - when setting up a media...

NAS 220 - Media Share Not Functional

warren, Amazon
6 October 2011
  • Summary: We bought this drive in August. Both of us in our household are very technical; however, the Media Share functionality was not working on either the Mac or the Windows 7 machine we have in house. After multiple back-and-forth attempts with Seagate email support, I finally decided to call.

No Drive Encryption Like Previous Black Armor

J. Lark, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: Like other reviewers I owned the Maxtor Black Armor that had full disk encryption. I wanted a higher capacity drive like my old one but was disappointed that the Black Armor applied to the backup software, NOT the disk encryption software. I will be returning this hard drive.

Problematic For Me

LoveGuitar "LoveGuitar", Amazon
27 July 2011
  • Summary: I needed something bigger than my external hard drive to back up my files on my home computer which runs on Windows XP. I'm just about of space and all I want to do is to move stuff from my computer to the Black Armor NAS data server. Looks like it just ain't gonna happen.

Very complicated

Kenneth C. Picton, Amazon
10 July 2011
  • Summary: I am a reasonably proficient computer user, but not a techie. The instructions for this unit are difficult to use and often omit a step or two that are hard to figure out. Unless you are well-versed in IT, I would recommend a different unit.

Surprisingly slow performance, internal backup useless

Edward Sterling "PC Doctor House Calls", Amazon
3 July 2011
  • Summary: Like reviewers Spivak and Deborah Dobbins, I too am very disappointed that a company like Seagate that I have regarded as the best in the business has produced a product that cannot be effectively backed up.

Review of the Seagate BlackArmor Storage Solution

H. J. Spivack, Amazon
17 June 2011
  • Summary: I ordered the Seagate 4 TB storage solution because I have space issues on my computer. I've been trying to find the right backup solution for some time now and have filled a couple of external hard drives seeking the right answer. When I saw this 4 TB solution it looked ideal.
