Seagate - Business Storage 6TB 2-Bay Network-Attached Storage STBN6000100

EJ R., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • 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. DNLA works great, stream movies to all devices on my network.
  • 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 more professional way to access files/data on my own terms instead of someone else's. Transfer rates are SLOW on my gb internal network. wifi is about 2mb LAN is maybe 4mb (if I...

Seagate NAS Packaged Acronis Backup Software Beware

Scott R., Newegg
6 December 2013
  • Summary: My review is focused on the BlackArmor Backup software that is bundled with the NAS. Always looking for a better backup and recovery plan I was excited to see that I received a 5 user license of the BlackArmor Backup suite, which under the covers is the Acronis product. The software installed without issue and I went through the configuration and setup wizard easy enough.
  • Pros: The Seagate NAS is a solid device and should receive 5 stars, my review is to warn you: DO NOT USE THE BUNDLED BlackArmor (Acronis) BACKUP SOFTWARE! The Acronis BlackArmor software should receive 0 stars.
  • Cons: The Seagate STBN6000100 6TB Business Storage 2-Bay NAS is a nice appliance and appears to be working very well, I will provide a review after using it for a longer period of time.

Seagate NAS

EJ R., Newegg
14 August 2013
  • Pros: This NAS is a work horse. I have been loading data/movies/music for 2 weeks straight without a problem. Also streaming movies to my Vizo TV over wireless: beautiful picture and surround sound as well. I would recommend this device to anyone that wants a strong, steady and reliable NAS for their network storage.
  • Cons: Ftp works great, but the Tappin web app is pretty much only for downloading small data files. Can not transfer more than 2gb....what's up with that?
