Absurd, do not buy, nas is not hot swappable as advertised
Arun C., Newegg
10 November 2014
Summary: Also, when the drive died, it seemed to have taken down the network, I could not access even the working drive. Had to debug (with help from technician) by pulling one out and then the other.
Pros: in expensive, technicians are available to help.
Cons: false advertising - bought it as a "hot swappable" nas. To me it means that when a drive dies, you pull out the dead drive, leave the working one there and then replace the drive without ever shutting down the nas. My drive died and I put it back in "live". Technician tells me that I may have dam...
Summary: Stay far away from this device. I'm getting to the point where I won't be anymore Seagate products.
Pros: Has a lot of options and features like USM, USB 3, WebDav and One Touch backups and massive storage.
Cons: I'm starting to wonder if the biggest con here is Seagate. Bought this for a customer. I've had at least 6 different support sessions for this device. First thing Seagate wants to do is WIPE the DRIVES! Really? USM and one touch backups where flaky. If the dashboard stops responding the only way ...
Seagate - Business Storage 6TB 2-Bay Network-Attached Storage
E R., Newegg
18 August 2014
Summary: I must admit, phone service to Seagate was fast and friendly. They issued my RMA and I was done in about 20 min. Will wait until I have the "new" NAS installed and working and re-visit this review. Should be shipped tomorrow and arrive by Friday (2 day service).
Pros: Works well, when/if it works
Cons: This is a follow-up review. One year to the date of purchase (8/14/2013 died 8/14/2014) this unit died and is non-recoverable. Dual LAN setup does not work correctly and is probably a contributing factor to the failure of the device. Transfer speeds either wireless or wired are slow. DNLA streami...
Cons: Power button has never cycled power. The only way to turn it off is to pull the plug. It simply powers straight up when I insert the power plug. Power settings did not shut down the system when setup to do so overnight. Help information is really not that comprehensive and it took me a while to g...
Summary: The email from support (nice but not helpful): Thank you for contacting Seagate Support. I understand your worries and would like to help you. First, I would like to state that the Business Storage uses an ext3 format for the drives, as it uses a Linux kernel.
Pros: Cost effective backup solution. As long as you keep multiple backups on devices other than this.
Cons: Bought in Nov. of 2013. Had multiple USB drives. Consolidated them all to here thinking this is a more stable and reliable product. a couple of months ago I unplugged it to plug it into a new power strip (because I actually replace them like they recommend) and when it booted back up my configura...
Review for Seagate STBN6000100 6TB Business Storage 2-Bay NAS
Vay N., Newegg
7 July 2014
Pros: Setup is pretty straight forward. Served files over DLNA to my Samsung TV directly no problems.
Cons: The NAS stopped working after 8 months. It powers on and the disk light is on but the status light just stays off, which leads me to believe there's a problem with hardware and not the disks. After waiting for 30 minutes on hold for customer support, I spoke to a (totally uninterested) support gu...
Seagate - Business Storage 6TB 2-Bay Network-Attached Storage STBN6000100
E R., Newegg
25 February 2014
Summary: My network is gb Router, gb Switch, 30mb down/3mb up Modem. FTP is about 4.5mb in-house. About 129kb internet. I would give this NAS 5 eggs but the speed issue and the streaming (or lack thereof) make it a 3 egg. However, this is a Seagate problem not a Newegg problem.
Pros: Solid unit, have had this running 24x7 since I installed it about 6 months ago and no problems with device. Fan is white noise noticeable, but not unbearable. I like the fail-over dual LAN connections. Box is not bulky and sits very sturdy on shelf. Installation was easy and setup was intuitive. ...
Cons: Will not stream video (my main purpose for purchase), it wants to download the entire file. Tappin is a joke, with its file limitations and having to go thru their web site to access my files. at this price point and being advertised as a business level device, you would think there would be a mo...
