Good Bang for the buck

Robert A. Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a ZFS Nas4Free raid box and this in some ways is better. For streaming media this is easier to use, when you copy a file to the movies folder its automatically updated ready to be viewed on a smart TV. With Fuppes or other streaming apps on the Nas4free this update must be done manually and will disconnect the TV while its doing it.

Love it

  • Summary: I've had this for over a year now and it's been running 24/7 non-stop ever since. Never missed a beat, with 2 x 4TB drives it hums away under the bench never complaining, and transfers my nightly backups quickly without incident. I don't use any of the extra features it comes with, including the option of plugging in another external USB drive, but as network storage it's been faultless so far.

Great for me and good value!

  • Summary: I recommend using raw drives for initial install especially if you are having a problem. I have a few of these for quite a while and they are all good. I use Hitachi 4TB drives with good success. There is a new version the NSA 325 v2. which has the same hardware and similar performance but a more "stylish" container. I highly recommend them.
  • Pros: Fastest read / write in it's price range. Easy to set up and get running. Great for home media server and general back up storage. By the way, try deleting any Volumes / partitions and start with a raw drive.
  • Cons: Hard drive install and removal could be better. Other manufacturers are able to get the drives in and out without adding caddies or using a handle / pull tool for removal.

Best bang for your buck

Kenneth S., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall an excellent NAS and I will definitely purchase more whenever needing a 2 bay.
  • Pros: Offers great network transfer rates for a sub $200 NAS, USB 3.0 works good, system stays cool, simple interface.
  • Cons: I would like to have seen the ability to DNS instead of simply DDNS. I would also like to see run time and time remaining within the interface when using the copy/sync button.

Was expecting the worse, surprise surprise.

  • Summary: I did not purchase the ZyXEL NSA325 from Amazon. I got it on special from another online store. As others have said the instructions are lacking. I also had to look in the bays to see which way to install the drives. I threw a couple of two year old Toshiba in. I was not expecting to have the drives formatted automatically, so beware, anything you have on them will be erased, no warnings. I also set it for JBOD.

Great

  • Summary: No issues with the server at all. I have read some bad reviews, but I have experienced no issues with this at all. An occasional reboot...but honestly, when does that not happen at some point. Even my cable boxes have to reboot sometimes. Seriously, this is a great media server and performs with no problems.

Fantastic media server for the price

Ryan Harris, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: After some careful research on different NAS products out there I decided to pull the trigger and buy the NSA325 because it offered support for multiple transfer protocols (SMB, FTP, Bittorrent) as well as support for DLNA. The web interface is easy enough to navigate around with and it's responsive enough for the occasional times I use it. A recent software update allowed me to use it as a Time Machine backup drive for my Macbook pro which was a happy addition.
