Summary: Do not buy this product. Ive been selling the Black Armor NAS drives to my customers for years with minimal problems. Maybe a bad drive here and there, but with the raid system ive never lost anything. With these new style drives ive, had nothing but problems. A week ago was my first Whitney-Econa-2 problem.
Summary: Absolutely terrible product. Numerous problems: drops offline, slow operation, UI is missing crucial functions like a factory reset, Shared Folders when deleted are still recorded in the NVRAM and cannot be deleted, the "factory reset" software download requires a convoluted 2-step process and then fails with a 404 error (the instructions are also inaccurate). In short, no one cared enough about this product to make it worthwhile.
Not recommended, product is replaced by STCT4000100

Summary: I do not recommend this product. Seagate support has been responsive, but no amount of that will make up for the operational defects of this product. Here are some details: 1. AFP (for Apple/OS X systems to use the NAS, including TimeMachine) turned off and no amount of changing other things and rebooting made a difference. I ultimately had to backup what was on the unit and reformat. 2.
