Summary: Shocking bit of kit. Suddenly just 'Access Denied' error 1/2 way through a back up. It had been working well for a week and this happened. Now the web app that controls the device now says 'Error retrieving the information. Try to reload the page.', even though I can see the device.

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.
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...

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...
Summary: I wish I had read the review before buying this NAS. The USM to NAS backup does not work. The NAS hang when USM module is plugged in. Now it is not accessible. Need help to recover the data inside.
A Genuine Business Storage NAS Has Redundant Ethernet Ports Among Other Things...

Summary: ANY network attached storage device intended for BUSINESS use should have redundant ethernet ports on separate circuits (cards/boards) inside the box. The idea of redundancy is to reduce the likelihood of an outage/failure when a single component fails.
Summary: I bought this unit with low expectations due to other reviews and the fact that it was priced so low. I didn't care much about the extra touted features, I just wanted to be able to store and retrieve date from various LAN and WAN locations. It hasn't even lived up to those low expectations.
Summary: I bougth this after owning a well functioning Seagate Black Amour NAS. However, this new product is not at all like the old one. The firmware is EXTREMELY slow, so any interaction with the management portal must be done very slowly to avoid freeze and crash.
