Five stars for day-to-day operation but only one star for installation

R. Thompson, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: After two months of use I have only one complaint and that was with setting it up in the first place. It appears that its client software will not install on a computer that has a "reboot action pending". That is, if some previous installation or configuration change that has to wait for a reboot to complete is pending, the software will fail to install. On one computer just rebooting was al I need to do to get it to install.

Nice - seems to be thus far easy to use.

  • Summary: I shoot video as an amateur hobbyist and have always had issues with saving big files for projects. Prior to purchasing this I had about 6TB of storage 3TB was internal. I did have a little issue setting the unit up; however that was resolved very quickly by reading. There were several software updates that had to be completed in succession.

Awesome!

Steve Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: Super easy to set up. Just followed admin guide. Took about one hour from format/setup to copying files over.Two improvements could be 1. a way to dim the led on the front. Very bright, lights up the whole room in the dark. Had to devise a cardboard cover. 2. A way to change temperature readings on the health screen from celcius to farenheight. Extreamly happy so far after one months use.

Good unit

sbuie1006, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a great, high-capacity NAS device. The interface is intuitive and friendly. The only thing I can knock it for, is that it doesn't work with SBS editions of Windows. Which would be great as it's a perfect solution for some small business applications. It's still completely functional in an small business environment, you just can't use it from the server. You have to remote into with a PC.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Good Quality, Scalable
  • Cons: Compatibility

Don't give up

  • Summary: We converted from an HP MediaSmart Server for our business after reading some of the information and watching the videos on these units. We have an array of laptops that run CNC machines and several desktops that we use to manage our Manufacturing Company. We had initially set the system up ourselves with no problems, but after upgrading some computers, we started having failed backups.
