Solid piece of hardware

  • Summary: I've been using a 220 for the best part of year now and I'm reasonably happy with it. To start at the beginning... I originally opted for the Seagate from the local electronics store. I figured it was a name brand and I could slowly get more as required. Boy did I get that wrong!

Great, other than Slow Transfer Speeds!

My only qualms are slow transfer speeds, possibly due to raid disk imaging as files are transferred, as everything is running on Gigabit in my home office!

Nice little system

11 June 2012
  • Summary: I needed to replace my freenas system. I was going to upgrade another old desk top since they are great for that, but when I started pricing out some parts, it became apparent that I could more than triple my space and not have to work on older hardware and still pay less.

Annoying constant HUM.

Cyclone Shadow, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: This Seagate NAS is wrapped in a sleek black outfit. The device is not too difficult to setup. The only draw back as mentioned by other is how loud it sounds. After having it for couple of months, there is a pretty loud hum all the time. Good thing this is a NAS.
