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 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 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.
I could rate this if I could get it to work--Mac users beware!

Summary: I have tried in vain to get this Seagate Storage Network to work, but my attempts to make it work with my Mac desktop have been futile.

Summary: 06/01/2013 - PLEASE SEE UPDATE AT END OF REVIEW. I received my Seagate Business NAS (SBNAS) on February 26 of this year. It was a 2TB + 2TB Raid 1 (2 bay). The firmware was 2013.60193. I set up the Public folder with Media Server and Recycle Bin Manager enabled.
Summary: I purchased the Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay hoping to be able to back up everything on my system. I was able to get it to work for the first day and then turned off the unit to save on power. Two days later I turned it back on, the unit is working, but I can't get the network connection to work.
Summary: I bought this to backup my NAS 220. It works well but the documentation on NAS to NAS backup is sorely lacking. Update 11/3/2014 I have had this product for about a year now. I have it connected in a separate location and running a NAS to NAS backup from my NAS 220.
