Don't buy it.

Summary: Works perfectly as long as you don't reboot or modify the OS in any way. Problem is, Windows requires security updates. Security updates killed the OS. Spent all day on phone with "support" and they don't even know how their own restore process works.
Summary: Got this to replace an old file server. Works great. There are a lot of features that we wound up not using but I'd recommend to anybody else. Way overboard for a personal backup or fileserver but great for a small business. Even has room to expand and add more.
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).
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.
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.
