Pros: This Device is sleek and small, works as it should. Setup is super easy (Windows Vista Ultimate x64) I like it. Im running cifs protocol cameras saving content to it and it works great! plus using it as a file server, cpu load, mem usage and temp all seem pretty good. Web user interface is very n...
Cons: One bad thing tho, only -1 egg but lookout. The sata adapter is flimsy, first one I got wasn't soldered down good enough and popped off had to RMA but thanks to newegg they sent me a shipping label. Basically you need to be very careful.
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.
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.
Good device if you understand it's use and it's price point

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.
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.
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...
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.
