My First NAS Experience, It won't be my last.
23 June 2014
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....
Five stars for day-to-day operation but only one star for installation

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.
