Summary: Pros: Looks nice, feels heavy, it is relatively easy to connect to the first time. Cons: Super slow, basically unusable if you want to get anything done quickly. Tried to get it to connect via ethernet to one of my computers in the hopes of improving speed, but I can't get it to do Time Machine...
Summary: Pros: + Price Cons: - I have not seen any slower transfer device since 200...2?!! It took me 23 hours to copy 2.3T using an ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbits cable.... - It's only discoverable on the network whenever.... both from wifi or cable connection.
Summary: Pure junk!!!! Similar to several other reviews, this NAS failed after 6 months. It exhibits no sign of life: all LEDS, status indicators, etc. are off. A DVM test of the wall-wart power supply shows 12VDC unloaded.I'm hesitant to disassemble the drive and troubleshoot, but I may have to as returning...
I would not recommend this drive to anyone who wants to use it ...

Summary: I would not recommend this drive to anyone who wants to use it for it's reported purpose: i.e. networked attached storage. If you just want a hard drive to plus into a computer, then I guess it would be ok, but not sure why you would then chose this one. I've had problems galore from the very start.
Summary: Horrible, horrible, horrible. This NAS "worked" for 6 months, and by worked I mean BARELY worked. All seemed good when I first got this device. Transferred all my content over (right under 3TB worth [using the 3TB Seagate Central]) and even though it has a very slow r/w speed compared to most other...
Other than a couple minor annoyances, it works well and does the job. Glad I purchased it.

Summary: Saw this in a Walmart store last year and thought I would give it a try. I do not regret my decision as of yet. Transfer speeds are good on Gigabit networking and hardware, with proper settings in the network adapters on the computers on the network.
Summary: I'm giving it 3 stars cause it works pretty much how I expected it to work, but I have to continue to reboot it at least twice a week. This is very annoying I go to play a movie and it will not read. So I have to unplug it and wait for it to reboot. Not all that happy with product.
Summary: Initially I thought this was great. Easy to setup, remote access... then in less than a year it failed for no apparent reason. Since I was going to put my pictures and stuff on it, I spent the extra few dollars for the replacement plan. I thought great, I bought the plan.
Summary: It's a good "cloud storage" device and performs well, but the stock firmware lacks a lot of functionality. You can't change many settings and you HAVE to have a password. It seems to turn itself on randomly and makes me wonder what it is doing.
