Summary: Been using this for a year now. It has been reliable and can't think of anything to complain about. I like having media available to stream to devices without having to leave my computer on. I occasionally use the torrent client without issue as well.
Summary: Very good experience with this unit and with the company. The first one that arrived didn't want to talk over Ethernet. Zyxel tech support walked me through troubleshooting including a couple of ideas that hadn't occurred to me. When all failed, they agreed to replace the unit.
Summary: Very happy with this little box. Put a couple of SATA drives in that I had, plugged in an old Maxtor 1gB USB drive and installed the included software. Used primarily as a media server, I will probably buy another one to serve as a backup to my network PCs.
Summary: It's a great device minus some shortcomings - which is part of that cheap thing. I do think some of the issues come from translational errors between the designer and the build and the manual. anywho. what they don't come out at say but should. YOU CANNOT USE FIREFOX TO CONNECT TO THIS NAS.
Pros: relatively quiet, low power, compact, cheap - for specs. honestly nothing comes close from open box to power on was a snap drives go in very easily.
Cons: setup, instruction manual, setup, bright blue light, poor diag leds did I mention the setup?
Summary: This is a very nice NAS. It is the very first NAS I have ever owned, and I have learned a lot after purchasing this. I have nothing bad to say about this NAS, and the only things I don't like about it are my own fault for not looking into it better.
Summary: For its price it's the best NAS you can ever find. I never tried any NAS more expensive than 200 bucks and all of them were... well. The truth is that all of them were piece of sh*t. With only exception of Zyxel NSA320. It's true that it's not straightforward to configure it for the first time.
Summary: This thing Rocks! After my Net gear Stora died. I tried another brand. Unfortunately it was junk. The ZyXEL is amazing. The software is easy to setup and navigate. It is also very fast, compared to my old Stora (keep in mind I'm using the same 1T drives I had in the Stora).
Summary: I had a Western Digital My World Book which all of a sudden started going off-line. I decided to replace it and after doing all the reviews the ZyXEL seemed like a good choice. I moved my drives over from the WD and they worked fine even though they were not on the compatibility list.
Summary: This is a great NAS. I use it with XBMC via gigabit and wireless, and it hasn't failed me. I haven't tried it with multiple instances of XBMC, but I would probably recommend only one instance at a time, unless RAID 1 is in use.
