Summary: It is a relatively low-cost two-bay NAS enclosure built with media streaming in mind. The OmniNAS KD20 lacks support for advanced features such as iSCSI targeting and can't be used as a web or FTP server; instead, it aims to make life as simple as possible for users who want their NAS to function as a media server, USB print server, simple backup target or even as a BitTorrent client.
Summary: This was a lot easier to set up and run then the D-LINK DNS-325 2-BAY NAS, and as easy to run as the WD My Book Live 3TB Personal Cloud. It is obviously better then the WD my book when running blue ray size movies to the WD Players around my house. Price was right for the ease, very pleased that this worked as expected without any hiccups. It's sad that I always expect hiccups with technology these day.
Pros: Easy of set up, Size of hard drives you can use, looks good, OH and price was nice
Cons: Only weakness is that I have not had this long enough to find the weaknesses
Summary: This is a slick little machine which provides quite fast transfer speed on my gigabyte network. it averages 35MB/s (I tested with a 1GB movie file which gets transferred in 28 seconds between my IMac and the KD20) I have no problem streaming or playing media files through out my networked computers and media player. The cloud works like a charm when it comes to accessing my shared files from outside network. The web interface is easy to use...maybe too easy (see cons).
Pros: Small, easy to use, reasonably fast at this price range.
Cons: Lack of flexibility when it comes to transferring files between internal drives and usb drives
