  • Summary: I gave it 2 stars for the benefit of the doubt as I probably got a lemon. Indeed, it looks good,the GUI is nice and straight forward, it is loaded with functionalities and it is quite easy to setup.

  • Summary: I rarely get even 1 meg a second, and commonly about 500k/s. Streaming HD content from the box is virtually impossible, and even SD will start to stutter. The poor performance really takes so much away from the box that the other features just can't make up for it.
  • Pros: Easy interface, nice features, good price.
  • Cons: Horribly, horribly slow transfer speeds.

  • Summary: If you want a DLNA supporting NAS that will hold many large files, movies, or tv shows, that you will be downloading leagally ;-) through the bittorrent client, this may be a great product for you. Streaming did work awesomely even though the processor was taxed.

Has included backup software, set the locations on your computer you want backed up, and it will do it for you. With FTP server enabled you can have a icon on your...

This makes the NAS almost unusable if you plan to copy alot of files to it. 2. The processor stays at 100% utalization 5 minutes after startup, until it is rebooted ag...

  • Excerpt: Отсюда вывод: если вас абсолютно не волнуют скорости записи/чтения и вам позарез нужен дешевый (ОТНОСИТЕЛЬНО конечно!!!) медиацентр ИМЕННО фирмы Zyxel, то он c трудом, но свою функцию выполнит.
  • Pros: Красивый и компактный дизайн. Понятные и удобные настройки. Оперативная техподдержка на сайте Zyxel.
  • Cons: В первую очередь это конечно же качество "железа". Скорость записи данных не превышает 10,5 МБАйт/с (84 МБит/с), чтения 17,5 МБайт/с. И это предельные значения. Обращался в службу техподдержки мне прислали данные лабораторных испытаний данного прибора, где были достигнуты такие же показатели скор...
