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: Looks great, read write speed very fast and easy to use. The only downside for me is that there is no app for Windows Phone 8 to access my files from the internet yet. Other than that I would highly recommend it.
Summary: Very good device, works like a charm, easy to configure, pretty good GUI and web interface. I am using it as an FTP storage device for uploading images from a surveillance cam. Can easily stream media from your local network, haven't tried it from over the internet, but I guess it would be limited by the connections bandwidth.
For the price and functionality, perfect for the NAS novice

Summary: I have a lot of home videos of family and holidays and I got fed up with hunting in the cupboard for the DVD when wanting to play one. I looked at putting them online (using Picasa, Vimeo etc.), but you soon hit storage or file size limits unless you upgrade to 'pro' versions, which always involves a financial outlay. Looking for a solution, I kept coming across the phrase 'DLNA certified' device.
Summary: Everything that one home needed. This is not a NAS beast, but its perfect for home use. If you need to share some space with different PC, mobiles, TV etc, this is the unit. You need some IT skills, actually. If the program can't find the unit, just see what ip it get from the router status. If you have DLNA enabled products like PlayStation, TV.. etc will enjoy media server capabilitis of this NAS.
it's great. All my media to anywhere in the house ...

Summary: It needs a hard drive mounted to work and having bought a 2TB drive, it's great. All my media to anywhere in the house on any device but sometimes need an app to make it work properly. I recommend BubbleuPnP.
Summary: I wanted only basic functionality, maybe if you want more options and abilities then check the online manual for its ability to perform certain tasks but so far I have found the following: Good: * Easy setup...I felt it was straightforward generally, worked from the start, I did spend a long time working out HOW to use it but it was trial and error....and to reiterate it worked immediately no probs!
Summary: I purchased a Seagate Homeshare awhile back and could never get it to work. It would never show all directories or contents, Seagate support was absolutely useless so I gave up and purchased this great little thing and i never looked back. It was easily set up and to instal the drive, it did what it was designed for i.e. show all directories and there contents over wireless giving good results.
