Ok network storage but with some faults

  • Summary: Basically its a good NAS as long as you dont have any drive failures. What is weird is that WD packs these with green drives when they specifically recommend against using their green drives in a RAID environment due to the Time-Limited Error Recovery times being longer on desktop drives as opposed to their Raid Edition drives that cost twice as much.
  • Pros: Good storage solution with Raid 0, 1, 5 support. New firmware adds SSH access. User permission management across folders is a plus as well.
  • Cons: Drives are not hot-swappable and my initial Raid 5 build took 26 hours to complete.
