Summary: I'll probably be buying a portable drive soon since the price and size of 2 TB is so much lower now, and the convenience/speed of USB 3.0 is better than this.
Pros: It works... it's 2 TB... it attaches to the network I got it so that I could keep my work and school files on it to be accessed around the house regardless of which computer I was on without having to keep duplicate systems on the computers and always be checking them. For this it works great. Sm...
Cons: When transferring files it's ridiculously slow, mostly trying to add them to the drive. My other purpose of the purchase was holding my pictures/movies/software/etc... if you get a movie that you want to watch, be prepared to wait quite a while as it transfers over.
Excerpt: I was tired of using small external drives to back up each individual computer. I needed a way to back them all up that are on the router. This was the easiest way to back everything up. It was so simple.
Pros: easy to set up., no loading cd into computer, set up in less than 30 minutes
Excerpt: Drive was available for a few days and then became inaccessible. Nothing could be done to resurrect it. I tried my Linux desktop and laptop as well as my Windows7 laptop and not one of them could access the hard drive after a short time. Completely and totally D-E-A-D!!!
