Summary: Does everything they say it does but you have to update the firmware when you first get it to do so. My only disappointment was that the ownCloud software does not allow the "cloud" folders to be viewed or modified via the NAS method of viewing the drive. OunCloud keeps its data locked up and is data base driven. There may be a way to break into it since it is all just a clever little Linux server but I don't know how to do it yet.
Summary: The Zytel NAS310 is a cheap, easy wasy to share files, if you have a lot of files and several different PC's any of wich may need one at an time. Great little device, kas media sharer built in along with sevar olther options. My favorite being the DyDns that comes pre-loaded in a few stamps and a little knowledge you can access your files from anywhere. Thinking of already installing a bigger hard, presently hvaea 1 terabyte didn't realize how fast it would fill.
Summary: Love this NAS!!! Absolutely 5 STARS!!!!!!! It is sleek and slim and takes up no space. Hooks right up to computer and starts working right away. Couldn't have been any easier. Includes all the software right on the hard drive. Just plug and play. You can stream 1080P via this NAS without any issue. highly recommended!
Summary: I own 2 of these and they are a great value. Lots of features and they are very reliable. The only down side I have found is that they do not automatically restart after a power failure. I contacted ZyXel and they said they have no plans to add this feature. If this is a problem, there are many other brans out there that do automatically restart. One of mine is acting as a repository for my IP cameras.
Summary: I have purchased and installed just about 20 of these in homes and multiple Corporate Offices where backups take place. I have installed Hard Drives from 160 GB all the way up to 3 TB. Out of 20 only 1 was defective. All backups have been written successfully with Acronis TrueImage, StorageCraft ShadowProtect and others, and I have been able to restore in emergency situations with no problems. It is also easy to replicate the backups thanks to the built in FTP Server.
Summary: The ZyXEL NAS310 is a nice little package, But I think it takes a little reading of the Users' Guide to come to grips with how it is best used. Especially if this is your first taste of a modern NAS. The Guide, a nearly 600 page PDF included on the CD that comes in the box, sounds intimidating as all get out ("600 pages, Oh My!") but is easily skimmed and the table of contents and index can usually point you in the right direction quickly..

Summary: This is my second Zyxel NSA310, it is to replace an old NAS which finally gave up the ghost. Taking the old drive and placing it in the new NAS it worked first time, no need to reformat, so saving all the data on the drive! Remove the screw from under the front cover, slide in the SATA HDD, screw front back on and switch on. Wait while it boots and you are ready.
