  • Summary: I do business IT for several companies and we had ordered one of these a year ago and was so impressed with the drive speed and reliability we've ordered several more since and recommend them to all our clients , they have a full 2008r2 installation on them so maintenance and monitoring is a breeze .

DX4000 = There's a new top dog in the NAS appliance world

John T., Newegg
11 January 2014
  • Pros: I usually work with NetApp, IBM XIV, Compellent, EMC Clariion and DMX. I use these appliances for backup targets and physical migrations of servers from one place to another. It runs windows, NFS was flawless if you know what you're doing. ISCSI built in. Oh yeah - doesn't have what you need? It's running windows fellas - download and install the app. I'm using it for an NFS datastore right now for VEEAM VMWare backups and replications.
  • Cons: For the price - There are non. I"ve used IOMega StorCenters (GARBAGE), Netgear, Buffalo, Linksys, and Drobo. I'm sold - I HATE appliances - I've been desperately looking for something fair.... This is a good intermediate solution inplace of a bulky server

they added iscsi!

Kenny B., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Pros: 3rd review, just thought I would add that a recent update added full native iscsi target support via the OS! That was really the only thing this unit lacked, so if that was a deal breaker for you before: not anymore!
  • Cons: It doesn't make me a sandwich? Honestly: none! The thing just works!

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
5 August 2013
  • 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.

Don't give up

George S., Amazon

  • 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.
