Summary: I have owned this unit about a month. Though it provides NAS functionality I find a number of shortcomings as follows: 1 The unit (for no apparent reason) has gone offline although it states it is online on the Admin page.
Summary: Great product, perfect packaging, esay to use so far with 2 week of use has already solved 2 needs i had, the down side is that i bought it for a specific task (enable NFS for a Vmware ESXi server) but its the only thing it cant do, seems that the NAS does not support NFS v3 needed to be able to use...
OK hardware but outdated firmware and poor support

Summary: I get transferrates at up to 32mb/s, which is not bad. However , the email alerts can not be made to work with SMTP servers that are TLS enabled and running on port 465/587, which is the standard for TLS enabled servers. Zyxel NSA325v2 can only connect to SMTP on port 25.
My ZyXEL NAS221 network failed, I purchased this one ...
6 December 2012
Summary: My ZyXEL NAS221 network failed, I purchased this one as a replacement so that I will have all my files without too much hassle. The manual is too simple. I first could put the HD into the plastic bed/case, which were taken out from old NSA221.
Summary: Good for pictures/documents. A more basic way to transfer the files to and from the NAS would be ideal as the software cannot handle large loads.
Pros: Cheap. Media Server. Autonomous torrent downloading. Lots of options to play with and very green. Very silent. Good for many photos and documents. Can be extended using eSata and has USB backup right on the drive. Very solid material quality. Very easy installation.
Cons: Uploading files to the NAS is a nightmare. Using the given software uploading goes file by file with a few seconds gap in between, this adds up over time. Large files fail frequently and need to be restarted. Attempted drag and drop into the NAS directory automatically cancels itself a few minute...
Summary: This ZyXEL NSA310 1 Bay NAS enclosure gets good reviews and that was one of the reasons I bought one. I've tried running the ZyXEL NSA310 1 Bay NAS enclosure under Win 7 64 and Win 8 64 with a 2TB and 3TB HDD and the same problem keeps popping up.
Summary: Bought this based on many good reviews placed in the computer press. Simple to set up with lots of interesting features which I won't use half of. A word of warning. I bought this based on low price but the product comes from a German source therefore dispatched with a two pin plug which is not...
A budget BusyBox NAS, lacking refinement but with a decent suite of applications
9 October 2012
Summary: This budget NAS enclosure offers RAID-1 protection for your data, easy network connectivity and a fair selection of downloadable apps to provide a variety of functionality. On the downside, it looks cheap and plasticky and that it makes a bit more noise than you'd ideally like.
