Been more than a year and still running

Dionisio Garcia, Jr., Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this NAS on a black friday sale and after more than a year its still working. I use this to store videos and watch them on my tv or on my mobile devices via DLNA. Not the fastest NAS around but i'll say its worth it. Gone are the days of using USB sticks to watch movies and share files. Just hook up to the network, access the device and you're good. Minus 1 star for not being very fast.

  • Summary: this thing is junk and does not consistently work. I had upgraded its firmware with the same outcome, it freezes and needs many reboots. Please do yourself a favor and avoid this thing.

if you own only a pc beware of the enclosed software

  • Summary: i just received this friday 2-3-12. installing the hard drive was easy then ran the nas starter utility. THEN the problem started it will not load the firmware no matter what i tried. searching google found others who had the same problem, the best suggestion was to run it in windows xp compatability mode, DIDN'T WORK got as far as 30% of transfer firmware and it just stayed there for hour after hour.

Not perfect, but very good for the price

Jim B "Rechargable battery user", Amazon
2 April 2011
  • Summary: I installed a 1.5 TB Green WD hardrive. Installation works without a hitch. I mainly use it as a media sever for a PS3, Laptop/PCs, and a network ready Bluray player. It worked on all without a problem. I have noticed the complaint of some that it is not that fast. For instance when I upload a new movie to it, large GB+ movies will take up to 30 minutes or more, but I have seen other more expensive products take longer.

Great features, performance just ok, reliability so-so

N. Erath "nerath", Amazon
18 December 2010
  • Summary: This network drive enclosure has excellent features - background downloads, multimedia server, http and ftp servers - pretty much what ever you want to do is in there, and the price can't be beat. It has a cooling fan but runs very quiet, unnoticeable in my family room. Cons: Performance as a network disk drive is slow (I measured write speed at about 6 MB/s), not like accessing a true network server.

No-nonsense compact network storage

kfong99, epinions.com
13 July 2010
  • Summary: Recommended as a less inexpensive and more compact alternative to its competitors. Uses less energy than most other NASs in its class.
  • Pros: Compact and inexpensive alternative to its competition. Simple design and setup. Energy saving.
  • Cons: Technical Support may be weak and slow.

Limited for use as Squeezebox Server

Daniel Clingaman, Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: I had to return the first NAS 210 due to a defect. ZyXel support was very helpful with trouble shooting the problem and determining that the device was defective. I bought it as a server for my Squeezebox Boom internet radio. The American site for ZyXel had an older version of Squeezebox Server (don't recall the number) that did not work. There were significant changes made to Squeezebox Server and only a later version (7.4.1)would work with the radio.

GREAT NAS AT A AWSOME PRICE!

rbz, Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: I don't review things to often but I got to say this device impressed me so much for the price that I had to. The software is a little lame in fact im not even using it, but other than that I have nothing but good things to say. Out of the box it took about a min to put in a drive and my Mac recognized the dive on the network immediately. I average about 15 Mb on transfers and haven't had to reboot it yet.
