ZyXEL NSA320 NAS

Allen, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: It performs exactly as advertised. I bought it to get the gigabit network speed for my house, and I was not disappointed. Easy setup, and then it is forget it and just use it.

Best NAS from a price/performance aspect

Maria G., Newegg
17 April 2014
  • Summary: I was a little disappointed with my read/write speeds until I did a little research. Removing unused protocols and enabling jumbo frames on my adapter (not the NAS, but on my network adapter) yielded nice results.
  • Pros: You can't beat this NAS at the ~$100 price range. You will have to spend at least 50% more to get better read/write performance. I get write speeds in the 70-75mb/s range consistently, and read speeds in the 80's-90's, in Raid 0.
  • Cons: None in this price range.

Excellent little NAS for internet users

Scott L., Newegg
30 October 2013
  • Summary: Picked this up a few weeks ago from a close-out auction. Expected some basic NAS features and was going to use it to share some drives on my network. Was very pleasantly surprised to find features such as Flickr and Youtube upload support, Dropbox support including a .torrent watch folder.
  • Pros: * Lower cost than competition * Basic plug-and-play * A lot of hidden features and applications * Still supported (last firmware update 9/30/13) * Integration with Dropbox, Flickr, Youtube * JBOD, Raid 0, Raid 1 support * Extra USB ports for external drives
  • Cons: * Hidden features may require technical knowledge * Tablet/Phone web UI is a bit rough around the edges

Home Media Server Ready!

Meengla, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought it from Amazon a few days ago and I can already tell that this device is a wonderful and cheap (I got a 'used' one) addition to our home's gadgets. We already have a NAS in our home environment (Western Digital World My Book ii ) but that doesn't have a DLNA media server.

Very happy with this NAS

Jeshurun "Michael", Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: This is my first NAS for my home, and I read many of thee reviews here before purchasing. I think having a Gigabit speed connection is worth paying extra for in a NAS like this. I'm using WOL to wake it up when I need it, the disks shut down after inactivity, as set in the preferences.

Very Happy

ROBERT T., Newegg
8 August 2013
  • Summary: Ran a benchmarks from my Windows XP64 system with 1gb ethernet Dlink hub, copying 3.8gb ISO file: To external USB 2.0 Fantom 1.5gb drive --> 2:08 To Zyxel NAS --> 2:23 To Zyxel NAS after changing to 4K jumbo frame --> 1:39 My NAS only has 1 drive, a WD WD20EZRX.
  • Pros: Very fast, low power features, print server (replaces my HP USB JetDirect), expandable via external USB drives, feature rich. Set up in 15 minutes, including formatting my 2GB drive. Take the time to change your network to Gigabyte ethernet and enable jumbo frames the NAS and your PCs for best ou...
  • Cons: Very light weight, seems to be sturdy enough.

Works

LOTW, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: Works great and have had no problems with it so far. It is a little slow when transferring or syncing folders with large amounts of files, pegs the CPU at 100% easily but still works. Once files start copying works pretty good, I am getting an average of 35mb/s to 45mb/s over my network.

Really decent for the price

Erik W., Newegg
25 July 2013
  • Summary: To those that are "Getting about 10-12MB/sec transferring data": This is a limit of your network, you are likely connected using a 100Mb network (still very common in home office networks even most N speed WiFi routers have 100Mb wired LAN) To "fix" this you will need to upgrade your network to...
  • Pros: Low power consumption Hackable to a point, you can gain root access to SSH and Telnet and really own the box like you should be able to. Able to install other OS to replace the stock setup (requires some extra knowledge) Decent performance from NFS addon module. For NFS from Mac Pro Early 2008 mo...
  • Cons: Could have a faster processor as this seems to be the bottleneck for faster write speeds when using RAID setup. Could have more RAM too not sure if it really needs it though.

Great Value

Jeffrey G., Newegg
29 April 2013
  • Summary: I originally bought a Synology DS112j that I was VERY happy with. I returned it because it's very expensive and only had one drive bay. I bought this one instead for $75 less, and this one has two bays so I can RAID my disks.
  • Pros: Overall, a good value, setup was easy with one gotcha (see below), speed is fine, worth the money.
  • Cons: Cheap looking and cheap feeling, documentation could be better.

Great features for the price, reliable

Brian C., Newegg
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I didn't try the included software, use the web interface.
  • Pros: Great features for the price. I needed the RSS downloader and a DLNA server to move from an older Mac Mini over to something headless, and this fit the bill. It's tough to find these features in lower end NAS offerings. The web interface is clean and fast. Handles any size drive I've needed to th...
  • Cons: It would be nice if the DLNA server did demuxing (not transcoding) of content, which should be reasonable even with the ARM cpu, but you can't have everything. No eggs off for that.
