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: First off, when you plug in the hard drive you feel like the whole bay will break, and then you set it up, waiting forever at it "reboots" for hours. Then it locks you out saying you have an incorrect password, even after you set it multiple times. I have been years of experience including server systems...this is a piece of junk.
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.
