Total failure

Masters C., Newegg
25 June 2015
  • Pros: relatively fast
  • Cons: I have two of these units. Drives failed in both and both failed to rebuild. All data was lost. These units are pointless. Who cares if WD sends you a brand new replacement on a product you cannot trust at all

Don't buy it.

G. Widener, Amazon
19 June 2015
  • 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.

Have had two of these and had to RMA both of them

MIKE B., Newegg
1 June 2015
  • Summary: I would cautiously recommend this product. It does perform well when it is working. The nics could have j
  • Pros: When they work, they are very reliable. A lot of storage space for a reasonable amount of money. Windows storage server - which can also be a minus. Both of these have been in our work environment for the better part of two years. Both have been replaced under warranty - see cons below.

Both units have been replaced due to network card issues - and one of them due to the inability to even restore it. When ...

Buyer Beware!!!

John E., Newegg
28 May 2015
  • Pros: Nice box with some nice features.
  • Cons: First I had one drive fail. Had to deal with WD on that. Lucky for me everything went fairly smooth in the return. Then be careful when trying to expand the storage on this unit. Frustrating to find any drives for expansion that WD lists that are compatible for the unit. I bought the 2X2TB Sentin...

Perfect for a Small Business

revdaniel.ross622, Amazon

  • 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.

Fool Me Once.

Fritz Fritto, Amazon
31 January 2015
  • 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).
