Summary: Owned for 1+ yr now. Unit has performed well overall, has great features but can be a little problematic. Firmware upgrades are hit/miss the last few times. Doesn't read 3TB external NTFS drives properly. Tried XFS and worked for a short period of time then format/access went belly up. No drive issue, just lost the format/data. Still, as a media server it rocks. Load it with big internals, limit ext to 2TB and you'll be fine.
Summary: I purchased this to accommodate a new Seagate 3TB drive. (I'd originally intended to just connect the new drive to an existing PC and share it, but found that you need to do special tricks with a volume >2TB - this device handled it right away.) This has always stayed up and is easy to manage - great for backing up laptops over the network.
Summary: Ok, I paid well over this sale price and I'm happy for the price I paid. So if you are wondering about this product, get it for the price its at now! Holy Smokes! I'm tempted to buy a second one! Also, my first one had to be RMA'd and they were good to deal with. Mine had a network port that wouldn't work with a Gigibit switch. It would slow the transfers to 300K/sec. Put it on a 100MB switch and it would work fine. I sent it in and they replaced it.
Summary: The NAS320 is a very easy device to setup. I opened the box pulled out the case applied two 1.5TB hard drives in a snap and was ready to go! I then used the provided CD to setup the drive on my network and it worked like a champ. I would say this is one of the easiest drives to use and does not consume much power and is very quite. The purchase price was very attractive. I would reccomend this to anyone.
Summary: At first i could not connect to it or MAP network drives. I ended up reinstalling FIRMWARE 2 times to make it work. Strange. Great price love it. Make sure u update it when you get it so you can use the 3tb HARD DRIVES.
Summary: Price was great on NSA320 ($90). Buy.com delivered it quick. Out of the box plugged it in and connected with ethernet cable to my wireless router. Connected one of the USB drive I have (don't have SATA drive yet). Installed the software from suppied CD and presto, it showed up on the computer network on my laptop. Couldn't be simpler than that. I was able to work with folders on USB drive as if it was on my local drive (performace was very good on wifi).
Summary: Purchased for streaming video content to networked media players. Easy to set up if you follow some simple guidelines. Update the firmware, you must update one version at a time. Once updated you can use 3TB hard drives in the unit. Data transfers are fast across a 1GB Ethernet switch.
Summary: Overall I like it. The FW upgrade kept failing. You cannot upgrade to the latest FW directly. You have to step thru the intermediate FW versions. In my case i first upgraded to V4.23 and then to V4.40. If you directly try to go to V4.40 it always fails (at least for me). Beyond this issue, I did not find any other problem.
