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.

Good device if you understand it's use and it's price point

M. Brown, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Just received this early today. Made sure to update the firmware first thing. Using this primarily as a file for DVD/BR, backup device with Acronis True Image, and the add-on package "Gallery" for hosting photos and videos online since I have hit my limit with Flickr. Setup was easy. A simple TCP/IP assignment and it was on my network. Setup for Jumbo frame support and I am seeing writes in the neighborhood of 18MB / second. It's acceptable but no way optimal.

No-nonsense compact network storage

  • 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.

Not perfect, but very good for the price

Jim B "Rechargable battery user", Amazon
19 June 2010
  • 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.

Limited for use as Squeezebox Server

Daniel Clingaman, Amazon
19 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.

Everything work fine, but not very user friendly

Antonio Hernandez Sanchez, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: The only complaint I have about this product, is the messy web interface used for administration. Not very user friendly, and I'm still trying to get my broadcatching configuration work as I expected. Works fine, but could get some work on user interfaces...

Full of features but quite slow

Ivaylo Fiziev, Amazon
14 March 2011
  • Summary: I am really impressed by the set of features this thing offers. It feels solid and well made. It is tiny, quiet and stays cool all the time. I am using a WD Caviar 2TB Green HDD. I've tested it with Windows 7 and Windows XP. The setup was easy. The administrative web page is intuitive and user friendly :) I could instantly share my printer (Brother 2030), create and protect shares, access the built in media server with Windows Media player, setup FTP and HTTP access,...

Good product with many options

Keijo, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm satisfied with my NSA-210: it's quiet and has out of the box good backup software (Memeo Backup). Only drawback is that web interface could be bit faster.

User Review

Абрамов Юрий, Yandex
18 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Изначально брал, чтоб поставить на ноут SSD и все лишнее выкинуть на него, в целом нормальный девайс, у меня ноут подключен к нему через вайфай-роутер, при этом скорость копирования что туда, что обратно получается порядка 1.5 Мбайт/сек, что конечно сильно напрягает при копировании большого объема данных.
  • Pros: 1. свои функции сетевой помойки выполняет нормально 2. диск ставится легко, путем откручивания одного винта
  • Cons: 1. Софт для PC кривой, знал бы не ставил его вообще, проще настраивать и управлять через веб-интерфейс. 2. Со встроенным торент-клиентом глюки, пару раз попробовал не качает, разбираться не стал, качаю, как и раньше на ноут, но думаю это та же проблема - кривой софт, который в итоге я снес. 3. Шумит вентилятор, поэтому сразу разобрал и отключил, светодиод питания тоже светит сильно, если не выключать, то ночью будет, как фонарик. 4. Низкая скорость передачи данных, пр...
