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

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.
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.
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.
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. 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,...
Summary: Buenos días a todos / as amigos y compañeros de Ciao. Es la última Home Media Machine. No sólo el 2 Terabytes de capacidad,permite a los consumidores descargan cada fotos, clips de vídeo que se descargan en el cuadro, sino que también puede realizar programado descarga establecidos por los usuarios cuando no están en casa.
Summary: Jag har NSA-210 främst som backup för bilder och som det fungerar den ypperligt. Den senaste firmware-versionen (4.1) var dock lite skum när det gäller Media Server-databasen (tog flera dagar att indexera upp), så jag gick tillbaka till 3.2. Enheten är tyst och smidig och webinterfacet fungerar bra liksom ftp-servern. Jag har dock inte hårdtestat den på något sätt, men sett till priset så är den bra.
