  • Summary: Got this after my 3tb External Hitachi Touro interface broke - took the hitachi drive , paired it with another 3tb nice and cheap seagate and after transferring all my files connected it to the network and sat and start enjoying the media streaming. I have organized my own shared folders for the pics, music and videos but unfortunately the twonky server didn't like that and every few days it reset all settings - pointing only to the default disk folder and forgetting my...
  • Pros: Price, Quality, features.
  • Cons: Twonky media server is buggy

  • Summary: J'ai installé 2 Seagate Barracuda 4TB SATA3 64MB Cache en mode RAID1.Heureux d'avoir commender 3 HD, car il y en a un de défectueux. (RMA je crois. Installation super facile. Aucun problème de connexion avec mes 2 Asus media Player (O!Play Air et O!Play HDP-R1) , pareil pour le Samsung Galaxy S3. 3 machines qui regarde quelque chose en même temps et aucun problème.
  • Pros: Très bon NAS. Pas bruyant du tout. J'ai trop attendu j'ai manqué le spécial, J'ai payer $94.99. Toujours un aussi bon Shipping de NCIX. Très rapide Bravo!
  • Cons: Rien a dire pour le moment!

  • Summary: I bought this as a home media NAS, mostly for music. I use a Linux Mint machine as my primary computer and I couldn't get into the file transfer with Linux. I switched to a Windows box and it was easy to access and load the NAS. For the price of $69 I paid it seems like a great machine. I only have one WD Green 2 TB HDD loaded in it now and it is working swimmingly so far.
  • Pros: Cheap, Small footprint, Nice looking, Easy interface
  • Cons: Hard to transfer files in Linux

  • Summary: Very easy to set up. Media server works no problem when I have both IPad and desktop stream movies at the same time. The mobile app is very basic, ios app doesn't allow select  multiple file to upload, and it is not support download. Andriod app is OK, but crash alot. Base on its price $70CAD, I'm happy with it.
  • Pros: Cheap NAS solution
  • Cons: Media server and BT can not on at the same time, Mobile app function is very limited

  • Summary: Got it for $70, amazing price for a NAS. It's very compact and stays quiet unless it being used constantly. Lacks an auto-off on schedule, but it does go to sleep after a amount of time (can be set). Cannot use 2 drives independently, will show up as 1 big volume. For the price you can't go wrong if you need something simple.
  • Pros: Great price, very compact, very quiet.
  • Cons: Speeds are slower than higher end NAS'.

  • Summary: I always research before I buy and found good reviews on this item both on ncix and other sites. Was real easy to set up via the Finder software. Set as mirrored RAID with 2 seagate 3TB drives. added all my pictures, movies and videos from my various external drives and worked good with auto copy via front USB and sdcard slot. Although copy my 2TB USB drive took 24hrs. I am using XBMC Media Center 12.2 as a HTPC set up and working real good through my network.
  • Pros: Very easy set up. Software easy to use. Firmware update  before i set up HDD and working great. Android and Ipod connection is great. The Map drive in windows was easy.
  • Cons: Could not get DVD images to work on Ipad/Ipod through Omninas app. Very slow auto copy from my USB 2 TB HDD, took 24 hrs but copied fine.

  • Summary: Bought this on sale to house a pair of 7200 RPM drives. Setup was quick and easy. Not sure I trust the connector on port 0 of the SATA back plane, was seeing many timeouts during a Raid 0 remirror. Re-seated drives - problem went away.
  • Pros: Easy setup. Cheap (when on sale).
  • Cons: Vibration is annoying with 7200 RPM drives. Somewhat under powered CPU. Not confident about IO connector. Doesn't ship with ssh enabled, requires some "fiddling" to enable SSH and change the root password.
