Summary: home NAS with everything you expect from a home NAS for 1/5 of the price of others. everything works as expected, very easy setup and you even have private cloud apps to get into your data from everywhere.
Summary: Have had mine running 24/7 for almost a year now, and no issues. PRO: Ideal thermodynamic layout with solid aluminum shell; solid build; speedy and versatile for a cheap NAS; 8TB capacity and RAID. Filled mine with 2x 3TB disks, of different makes, non of which were listed as compatible but work fine; installing a breeze, USB3 connection and a great price. CON: Haven't managed to get mine to work remotely; setup in several different places.
Summary: I love the build of this thing. The one thing I would like to change is the fan controller management. Seems to always be running even if I'm not accessing any information from it so the fan is usually blowing. I have a D-Link NAS box and usually the fan for that one only turns on when hot and/or memory is getting accessed. Either way this Shuttle has a better build quality, interface, all around better.
Summary: Great deal for $89. Linux users (or anyone who likes to manage their own network) will want to know that the default IP is 169.254.100.200. Load the cifs module and then you can mount the partitions you create on the KD20 like so (I created a partition on the KD20 named 'media'): mount //192.168.1.11/media /my/media/mountpoint -o user=$kd20_user,pass=$kd20_pass,uid=0,gid=0 The KD20 no longer uses the NTFS filesystem internally by default.
Summary: You won't find a better 2 bay 8TB capacity NAS for this price. Have had no issues with mine and it is very easy to install, setup, and access from anywhere. Might not have the fastest transfer speeds out there but works great for its intended purpose. Plus it uses next to no power and the fan will only kick in when it needs to and is controlled by the temperature. This thing is silent except for when the drive spins up when in use.
