Amazing. Several other things don't work

Amazon Customer "NoBadgeNeeded", Amazon

  • Summary: Slow. Numbingly slow. Painfully slow. Buggy. Network drives come and go on the network. Try to delete file and directories. It actually only deletes some of the target objects! Amazing. Several other things don't work. The UI is horrid. Truly seems like a Beta product.

  • Summary: I've owned one of these for three years and it's still working well. Once in that time I had to restore the configuration, however it recovered rather well (I didn't lose any data, just "meta data"(what users/groups could use what shares)) Once in a while I have had to restart it after it had a red...

  • Summary: This nas works great, I can watch movies from any computer in the house. The only downfall is the filing system. If you upload your files and want to change folders around afterwords, it takes just as long as if you were uploading the file all over again.

Works but very slow. Media streaming a problem.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: Bought the NSA221 and added two 2TB WD SATA drives, which took about 10 minutes to drop into the two bays and get the unit up and running. I have about 40GB of music, 280GB of fairly large-file videos and 10GB of family photos, all set up for public sharing in separate folders mapped to an iMac...

Nice Product

  • Summary: I haven't had it very long, so I can't speak for how long it will last. Plus I just use it as a basic network drive. But it's fairly easy to setup. And it's a good value for the price.

an absolute turkey

  • Summary: I bought this as a media server and in fairness it does work flawlessly for that purpose but...... Nearly every time when adding new files it doesn't index itself so you need to force a database rebuild, the problem is that it then gets its knickers in a twist, falls over when indexing and locks up.

Zyxel NSA221 Media Share

  • Summary: I originally purchased the NSA221 last fall but due to the flooding in Thailand I did not get the HDDs since the prices were too outrageus. Now they are finally coming back down and I just got two Hitachi Deskstar 7200 RPM 2 TB HDDs for use in the NSA221 in a RAID 1 (mirroring) configuration.

Great little NAS

BillyBob, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this little guy. I store all my family videos, my dvds, photos and music and it works flawlessly streaming on hard wire. If you streaming wirelessly then that's on your wireless router. One little word here..
