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.
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 ...
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.

Summary: Very decent budget NAS. It's definitely not the fastest out there but hey, I only need to stream TV shows to my media box and it streams 1080p nicely. It has been running for about four weeks and there hasn't been a hiccup yet. I do have a few gripes about it though.
If you like to reboot constantly then this is the NAS for you!

Summary: I bought the KD20 orignally about a year ago because all I wanted was a basic NAS to do some backups and provide a centralized media server. Well, as others have mentioned numerous times, while it performs these functions fine when it's "up", the problem is it's a Houdini..
