Summary: great dlna server for the price but requires a certain type of hdd. I wanted to use the hard drive from my old computer but it was not compatible with the server. I had to buy another hard drive which was about another hundred dollars. DO YOUR RESEARCH ON WHAT THE SERVER REQUIRES BEFORE BUYING!
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.
Summary: I purchased this item on a leap of faith, as I couldn't find a review anywhere. I think I may be the first on the entire [...] It is a great little device. Granted most people looking for a true backup solution will shun this for only having the single bay, but for my simple needs, I was fine with a single bay. I just can't bring myself to make a backup of a backup. I figure I'm ahead of the game for having the one backup.
Summary: Lots of free software features which are actually useful. As a basic file server its fine with options for multiple users. Free Squeezebox server works really well with a Squeezebox Boom and SoftSqueeze plus iPhone 4 remote app works with both. Can be a little slow when multiple access being used but still easily 5 stars.
Summary: I really recommend the product. Very easy installation, good-looking, easy and clear interface. Lots of additional features. I have been using it for a month now including it's web server facility. Some reviews complain about its speed. I found NAS wasting some time on indexing music and files (so that they are accessible from a website), so I switched it off and everything is ok since then.
Summary: This really is a smart little NAS drive. For several years now I have stored all my video, music and photo files on 3 Western Digital Mybook 1TB drives. Since the day I bought them, I have been hounded by problems. They are noisy, crashes whenever you try to copy large video files, slow data transfer and get hot enough that you could almost fry an egg on them.
