Great for Home Storage, but poor for remote access.
26 May 2013
Summary: This device is fast and great for home use, if your just backing up pictures, movies, and music. That includes multiple computer back ups and such. Some of the apps on here for that purpose are good.
Summary: I use this along with two WD Red 3tb drives. It works; however was a bit difficult to setup and transfer all my data. Now that I have it setup, it works; however not as I expect. I have to manually connect to my drives on each boot.
Summary: I've been using it for about 2 months now. Pros: It seems quite stable. - I have not had any freezes or other similar problems. - For the most part it performs as advirtized. - Data transfers over a gigabit network connection are at about 40-50 MB/Sec. It could be faster, but not bad.

Summary: Not too many people comment on the video streaming feature, but since it advertised itself as a media server I expected this to be the best product for this function. I was able to stream HD video quite well, UNLESS, I wanted/needed to fast forward through the video to either skip commercials or to...
Summary: I bought this product mostly for its streaming capabilities. I wanted to store iTunes, pictures, and my DVD collection and access them from a variety of devices from Roku to Android and iOS products.
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: The price and the features for this device are outstanding. For the price it is superior to the other 2 leading manufacturer of a NAS with the same specs. I would of kept it and gave it a 4 if the CPU would not of had an issue.
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...
