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.
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.
Summary: I'd hoped the other reviews would be biased....nope> It broke within a month deleting all I had just loaded on it.Its a great idea, but what a piece of crap to blow 150$ on. It won't connect to anything and according to troubleshooting has had a fatal error.
Summary: This was one that worked right out of the box. A little confusion on my part on where the drive was, but once I knew where to look it has worked flawlessly. For a network drive, it is very inexpensive.
