Summary: PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE REVIEW FOR ZyXEL NSA310 1-Bay Network Storage NAS Closure My Nephew wanted a basic entry-level NAS and we thought this would be an ideal unit. On first looking at the NAS it almost looks like an external hard drive, but this not the case as it has a network connection. So this can connected it to your network and you are to access it from different computers, and even from devices outside of your home network.
Summary: I had no gripes with this item per se, only that I was expecting to be able to plug in my IDE drive, but it will only accept SATA drives. As I did not want to purchase a SATA drive I returned the item for a refund, which the vendor returned with no fuss. Credit to them for this.
This looks an excellent product - if only I can sort out how to work it!

Summary: This product arrived promptly, it was easy to install a disk and plug in - note however the device has a continental plug so an adapter is required. However the documentation is utter rubbish, unless you know the world of IP and ftp protocols blah blah blah, so requires some time and effort understanding the features of the device. The 'utility disk', I could only get to work with PCs which were cabled into the modem, not connecting via WiFi.
Summary: Use this to share my files around the house. Great for doing this - have it hooked to PS3, ATV as well as PCs and laptops. Really cost effective way of sharing files and means that our main PC doesn't have to be left on all the time to serve files. Only downsides are that a) it is a little noisy (fan) and 2. File transfer is slow using regular windows explorer - I think there is a quicker way to do file transfer but I haven't explored it yet.
Summary: This was an amazing find, ticks all the boxes! Stream iTunes to apple tv2, movies etc to my xbox 360 and iphone (using ace player). I have an MTD 1.5tb hdd and a 320gb usb drive for important backups. I also have the option to install an esata hdd so I can configure to raid1. All this plus an ace price point! (dont waste your time with the 2tb option - way over priced - buy them separately and you'll save a packet!
