Excerpt: The best thing I can say about a product like this is that it just works. Plug it into the switch and it shwos up, at least if you are using Windows 7 or 8. It's quiet and doesn't throw off a lot of heat either. The need for an external power supply, even when in usb mode is annoying, but it's so standard that I can't really complain about it.
Excerpt: I have never had a device perform so poorly. It takes forever to do things, a simple delete user takes over 10 minutes. When using it as DHCP it constantly looses the IP and i have to re-install the software to find it once again. I've decided to put it on the shelf. Bad purchase decision.
Summary: Works fine in Osx Mavericks, before you choose a NAS you must check your ethernet speed 10/100 is a total nightmare for time machine 1tb could be days to make the first copy! I don't have any issues in the setup, and the cloud service works Ok in my Macbook and my Iphone!
Summary: Looks good, reasonable price but didn't work with my network. Once set up it would not maintain contact in network once the pc was turned off. Help desk were good but couldn't overcome the issue, spend hours on the phone. waiting for return advise from DABS.
