It's OK

Abennett65, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: When it's working, it's good. A lot of disk space for a decent price. The copy rate is about 500-600 Mb/minute (though sometimes slower). However, it often drops off the network when I try to backup to an attached portable USB hard drive. Also, backing-up to an attached USB device is slow because it always writes all selected files, regardless if they already exist on the destination drive.

Does the Job but disappointed in the speeds

Jeremy M, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: The speeds could be much better. I'm running a wired gigabit connection and am only getting a max of 15MB/sec transfer speeds writting to the NAS. It clearly ran faster than a 100mpbs connection but just barely, and hardly what I would call gigabit speeds. To validate my environemnt I can hold a 62MB/sec transfer accross two PCs directly conencted to the same switch so I know its not the network or PCs I'm using to push the data to the NAS and transfer rates are the same...

Mac network setup a little rough

Cupcake, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm using macs and an airport extreme router and I wished to use this to back up with time machine. The disc software repeatedly crashed, so I downloaded the current version. It installed and ran but couldn't connect to the hard drive (though it did appear in the finder, oddly--just couldn't connect either manually or via seagate software). Following Seagate's instructions for using it with Time Machine did not work.

More Tortise than Hare

Jake Malachowski "Imafoolru12?", Amazon
2 April 2012
  • Summary: Its a shame because this box is a very attractive looking piece of equipment, has no downtime (and mine has been up for over a year now), and didn't have any bugs you needed to sort out before you began using it. Unfortunately, the biggest killer for this device is its speed. I'm using an Asus RT-N66U router and wired to it to give this thing the best advantage it can have, but regardless of whether you are wired to it or on wireless, I cannot eek out more than 5 MB/sec...

Windows Incompatibility

Martin Miller, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: Beside being fairly slow on my Netgear Gigabit-router based network (only 3-8 MB/sec), another major issue for me is that it cannot represent several standard Windows file attributes -- apparently because the software in the unit is Unix/Linux file-system based. Specifically files copied to it will lose any System, Hidden, Archive and/or Read-Only attributes they might have set.

Gets the job done

NetApp ROCKS!, Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: This little box gets the job done if you're looking for a simple, but effective, NAS solution for your home. It's super quiet, has plenty of capacity, and looks pretty cool. The software features are fine for the average home user.
