Cheap NAS, but a handful of downfalls

Cam A., Newegg
24 December 2015
  • Summary: Would not recommend this NAS to anybody. I bought it because it was a little cheaper than other available NAS', but the few dollars I saved wasn't worth all the headaches I've had with this unit.
  • Pros: This unit is cheaper than some other NAS' available on Newegg. That's the only real pro I can say about this unit.
  • Cons: -The NAS slows to a halt as soon as multiple users try to use it simultaneously, one user will be able to transfer files at about 30MB/s, while the other is limited to about 75KB/s. -Although this unit is advertised to have media server capabilities, the media server doesn't work correctly. In my...

Only Very Basic Features. Could be better with Firmware Updates

Jeffrey M., Newegg
29 August 2015
  • Summary: I was really hopeful that this NAS could be a low cost archiving and Media Server solution for my home. Due to the User Access Rights issues and lack of the availability of a Windows driver to read the XFS formatted drives in the event of the Unit failing, I'm hard pressed to recommend this device...
  • Pros: I've now had this unit for about a year. I haven't had any of the issue that some have reported like noise or over heating but I am using Laptop drives in the unit. At first, the unit wasn't the most reliable. Sometimes it would be available and other times not. Recently though, it has been avail...
  • Cons: Why I cant recommend this device Home Storage for family The KD20 is a Linux device and formats your hard drives for Linux (XFS Format). If the KD20 fails, the drives are not readable by a Windows device. This means that you either need to keep a Linux machine around so that you can mount this dr...

KD20 - Best Bang for your bucks

Klodnito, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: I've owned my KD20 since May 2013. I use it for storing my media files and play them from DLNA enabled devices or from PC's. The firmware was upgraded once when I got it and again today. It's worked (slowly @ 20Mb writes/80Mb reads) but flawlessly all this time.

Great when it works

Steve C., Newegg
16 September 2014
  • Pros: When the device works it works great with no issues
  • Cons: The device continually drops off the net. I have it connected directly to my router but after a few weeks of use it started disappearing off my net. I tried shutting it off and on multiple time and eventually will reconnect again after a couple of days of trying. Right now I leave it off most of ...

Poor network performance and now failure

kevin v., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Previously, I had the data on a old PC machine for about 5 years. The machine was running Windows 2000 and nothing was really wrong and worked well on network. But I didn't want to update it and started to worry about age, so decided to move data to this NAS.
  • Pros: Decent price for a NAS. Started out OK.
  • Cons: Has always been a little flakey on the network. Sometimes had to reset it in order to see the drive as a network drive. Then today I could not access at all, and finally it decide to not boot. The docs are poor and do not describe the solid red light condition.
