Summary: My first disappointment was when I found that instead of the eight screws needed to install the drives they only give you five. So I call the customer support number and left a message but of course they never returned my call. Strike One! The documentation provided is worthless, Strike two!
Great for Home Storage, but poor for remote access.

Summary: This device is fast and great for home use, if your just backing up pictures, movies, and music. That includes multiple computer back ups and such. Some of the apps on here for that purpose are good.
Summary: I use this along with two WD Red 3tb drives. It works; however was a bit difficult to setup and transfer all my data. Now that I have it setup, it works; however not as I expect. I have to manually connect to my drives on each boot.
Summary: I've been using it for about 2 months now. Pros: It seems quite stable. - I have not had any freezes or other similar problems. - For the most part it performs as advirtized. - Data transfers over a gigabit network connection are at about 40-50 MB/Sec. It could be faster, but not bad.

Summary: Not too many people comment on the video streaming feature, but since it advertised itself as a media server I expected this to be the best product for this function. I was able to stream HD video quite well, UNLESS, I wanted/needed to fast forward through the video to either skip commercials or to...
Summary: I bought this product mostly for its streaming capabilities. I wanted to store iTunes, pictures, and my DVD collection and access them from a variety of devices from Roku to Android and iOS products.

Summary: The price and the features for this device are outstanding. For the price it is superior to the other 2 leading manufacturer of a NAS with the same specs. I would of kept it and gave it a 4 if the CPU would not of had an issue.
Summary: I got the item quickly and in good condition. However when I hit a road block and called support. After waiting for 40 minutes, someone answered and said they would call back later that day. They never did. Instead, 2 weeks later they sent me an email, asking for the details of my problem again.
