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...
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!
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
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 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.
Pros: Price! Ease of setup. Aesthetics. Noise footprint (none, essentially). Network performance relative to price. Convenient buttons and ports, well thought out. Drives are easily accessible. Web interface works well, and remote access is a snap, after setting it up (also easy).
Cons: Software package could use a few improvements, like, a bar graph or readout depicting estimated percent completed a/o time left while running a backup of the NAS. I have one running right now; about 60GB of data to copy, it's been running for about an hour to an external 2.5" drive via USB 2.0 port. No idea when it's going to be done. A temp sensor would be great too.
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
