Heartsick

J. Leary "jleary", Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I purchased this as a way to upgrade to a more robust means of keeping the huge quantity of pictures and video I have. I no sooner finished transferring EVERYTHING to the server and reformatting the old drives to free them up (after all, with RAID1 I should have the data backed up already, right?

Not so happy

moose, Amazon
25 March 2015
  • Summary: Had it for less than a week. Could not get much support from ZyXEL. They basically told me they could not help, and that i should return it to reseller. Ended up ordering a Asustor AS-200TE. Much happier with this product, and they even have support that at least tries to help.

Buy this if you want to have a stroke!

suprvw, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: I wish I could give this negative stars. This is the most un-user friendly device I have ever used.

Bought it, returned it!

Rainnel, Amazon
24 August 2014
  • Summary: Heres a short summary why, 1) After about a week the fan started making an irritating buzzing noise. The noise itself didn't affect me as much as the knowledge that something was getting bruised up inside and going to fail eventually :( 2) My primary purpose of getting a NAS was to take care of my...

Overheated and died

Andrew C., Newegg
10 June 2014
  • Summary: Very disappointed at its short life, and now its too late to RMA. Hopefully it didn't kill my harddrive that was in it too.
  • Pros: Worked very well for a few months
  • Cons: One day it just wouldn't turn on. The unit was very hot and it sounded like the harddrive was still spinning, but it would not connect to network and no lights would illuminate on the front.

Unreliable and complicated.

Miguel Hinojosa, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: I was expecting a really simple system, not that much hassle. It has the time machine option, but it took me four tries to get it working because during the backup it just stopped midway and I had to restart doing the backup.

File corruption issues

Michael N., Newegg
20 July 2012
  • Summary: Tech support also does not respond, i've been waiting 3 days for a response with nothing so far. I would avoid this unit.
  • Pros: It's cheap
  • Cons: I purchased two of these devices to be used to store backups coupled with Western Digital Black 1TB drives. The backup product makes a MD5 hash of the data before sending it to the NAS. On both devices in different sites I have seen file corruption problems where the data fails MD5 verification.

No backup software

jimjim "jim", Amazon
3 March 2012
  • Summary: It appears that the nsa310 is not supplied with the memeo backup software that is mentioned in some reviews. It has facilities for backing up the device to another network storage device and for backing up usb sticks. Howevever, there do not appear to be any facilities for backing up a local PC.
