Burns up drives

Regmar H., Newegg
29 December 2010
  • Summary: I used mine to support a commercial website in RAID 1 config, and when it burned up its first drive it slowed to a crawl then froze up. The browser-based admin util gave no information except that it was "broken". I lost that customer. Trendnet replaced my first NAS, and I bought a new drive.
  • Pros: * Inexpensive * Quiet
  • Cons: * It burned up two hard drives in 7 months * Its browser admin util doesn't tell WHY the system is broken when it's broken. * In RAID 1 configuration it doesn't allow replacement of a bad drive without reformatting BOTH drives. * During format ops the browser admin util gives no status info, and ...

Burns up drives

Regmar Hanemann, Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought a TS-S402 back in May, and since then I've burned up two drives. I have them mirrored, and when one burns up I have to copy ALL the data off the drive, then replace the bad drive. The NAS will not rebuild the new drive on its own.

Capable Unit with a few minor quirks.

Joey V., Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: This unit is whisper quiet with a good bit of capability under the hood. It's gigabit NIC port allows for speedy transfers from other systems with gb ports configured. I have mine configured with dual Western Digital 1.0 TB SATA HDD's and it works fine.
