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.
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.

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.
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..
