awesome nas

  • Summary: works great, not the speediest, but for my basic needs it saved me $100 off the synology, and I didn't need all the bells and whistles. currently using it as a file server only, i am not using the extended media server or private cloud stuff. if this product had an option to sync out to amazon glacier or windows azure blob storage, this would easily be a 5 star product.

  • 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

Excellent choice for the money

  • Summary: Overall, this is an excellent NAS choice for the money. I bought it to replace my now retired HP MediaSmart Home Server. While the OmniNAS doesn't have as many features, it is robust, network-accessible, and simple to set up. I dropped in 2x1TB drives and mirrored 'em, and I now have a renewed peace of mind for my data storage. I'll likely upgrade it in the future with larger drives.To the computers on the network, it's just another shared folder.

  • 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'.

Overall good but has quirks

  • Summary: My set up is an 2 western digital green 1tb hard drives asus n64u gig router, trendnet gb switch,
  • Pros: Great price and value. Simple and does almost anything, works with both afp and smb very well. Accepts up to 4tb drives, and shuttle puts out firmware updates every few months with improvements. Good looking, quiet and great on energy consumption. Comes with arconis backup software, and is usb 3.0. After learning inside and out how to use it, very stable. Cloud option is always nice too. streaming works fine, write speeds are actually really good for the price and rea...
  • Cons: The non fan control thing was a huge issue, but they addressed it in last patch...testing. Doesn't allow you to use certain characters in passwords for things, odd and annoying. Confused me for a bit. Obviously could be faster, but you understand you are paying under $150 for this. The twonky server is nice but doesn't play mkv :( but not shuttles fault...arconis software not full version, but not a big deal because thats heavy duty home stuff.

  • 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.
  • Pros: easy setup,quite fast transfer speed
  • Cons: no problem
