Not slow at all

John, B&H Photo
24 October 2015
  • Excerpt: Not sure what you're storing/backing up but I back up all of my movies, pictures, music and multiple systems to it AND stream them to my tvs and sound systems with no problems. All my video is encoded at 1080 and my file sizes approach 2gb and I never seen signs of slowdown.

Extremely Slow

Rob C., B&H Photo
13 October 2015
  • Excerpt: Bought this thinking it would be a good safe storage solution. It works as advertised but what they don't tell you is this thing is very very slow. If you're not in a hurry to access your data this unit is for you. If speed of access is an issue, I'd look at another product.
  • Pros: Easy Setup
  • Cons: Slow

Be wary

Jeremy B., Newegg
23 September 2015
  • Summary: Based on the above, I would recommend staying far away from this product.
  • Pros: Pros include ease of use, albeit slow, setup process. Reasonable cost is also a factor, but keep reading ....
  • Cons: Bought this unit 11/2014; implementation was fairly smooth. A few thoughts: 1. Lower quality components than I would have expected in a business-class NAS device (desktop drives vs. NAS certified drives). 2. Firmware seems questionable; management portal periodically doesn't function or only show...

Get a different brand

Danny A Stewart, Amazon
12 July 2015
  • Summary: Spend a little more money and get a Synology. Falls off the domain almost every time it reboots. And sometimes in the interim.

Is this really a NAS?

Angel Q., Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Summary: BE AWARE: It is shipped from Seagate with Desktop hard drives instead of NAS-rated hard drives. The point of purchasing such a unit is because it is a NAS device with quality parts that match the purpose.
  • Pros: USM Slot - Cool but being discontinued.
  • Cons: DESKTOP HARD DRIVES used instead of NAS-rated drives

Bad Idea

Eric C., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Pros: When it works, it stores data.
  • Cons: bought 2 of these. One failed after 11 months where a drive "failed" but the unit failed to email to alert. After rebooting the NAS, it then did not detect any drive. Another reboot brought it back with 1 failed drive and all data gone. Seagate was only willing to charge for recovery to help. Nex...

The verdict is...Building......

Anonymous, Newegg
4 December 2014
  • Summary: I will review again when the RAID is done building and I have finished my setup using iSCSI with my server. Thus far, its nothing impressive. To be fair, for less than 1k this will probably end up being a very good NAS.
  • Pros: This is a small unit and very quiet. The configuration GUI is easy to use and understand and has plenty of features.
  • Cons: I have had the NAS for 2 days and I am still waiting for it to finish building a RAID 10. Factory setting is a RAID 5 with all 4 disks and I wanted better redundancy and speed without parity since these are consumer drives and not NAS drives. It has been building the RAID 10 now for more than 32 ...
