Summary: If you need to protect your data you must attach a backup drive to this "high reliability" storage system. Definately add a UPS to the cost figuring of this purchase (of course this is smart for any critical piece of electronics). The fact that you can NOT ACCESS the Windows Storage Server software/OS is actually a deal breaker for anyone serious about using this SAN.
Summary: This is the first NAS device that I have installed for a client. Honestly, this has to be one of the nicest devices I have ever touched. It has more features than anything I have ever seen before. This sucker comes with a flavor of Windows Server 2008 called Windows Storage Server 2008. I setup this device in what seemed like only 30 minutes. The only thing that was slightly tricky was getting it on the domain after needing to configure the manual IP address settings.
The unit was used and did not even have the right drives in it....

Summary: The outside still looked new; however, I opened it up to find drives with labels peeled off. It took a couple of restarts to start and after completing the setup process to get to a screen to check the harddrive capacity it had 1.18 TBs....UGGGGH! It was supposed to have 4 TB. Waisted my time, money, and effort....
