  • Summary: Highly recommended.

  • Summary: I have yet to test it under a fully loaded network environment. I plan on using their software to sync files from our remote workstation out in the field.
  • Pros: Easy to install, Joined my domain quickly. I am using this paired with SAMSUNG F1 RAID Class HE103UJ (4 in each). Raid 5. I have one NAS at my corporate office and another located across the city. I pushed 12gb of data across our two (20/5) FIOS lines in about 6 hours. The device is pretty sturdy...
