Just what I needed

  • Summary: I researched the available products for an NAS and after reviewing features and especially user comments I went with the NAS220. I have not been disappointed. It worked right out of the box and within the first half hour of working with it I copied several GB of picture files to it from a a Win 7 laptop. The back-up software is excellent although it takes a little bit of time to get use to because it is a commercial product vs strictly a consumer offering.

Windows Good; Mac So-So

  • Summary: I purchased the Black Armor 220 to provide backup and extra storage capacity for the computers my wife and I use. Seagate's documentation said it is supported on Windows and Mac systems. The results were mixed. Windows: The hardware and software installed easily. The software was easy to use even for a NAS novice such as myself. I was able to set up a share to provide backup for Windows. Mapping it to provide easy access was simple as well.
