Excellent Software Easy to use Powerful CPU Robust disk health software
Can be a bit expensive No Standby mode. Benefits from more RAM
This is a pretty solid NAS for home backup and file storage. The UI is intuitive and easy to use. It can use the Seagate Iron wolf Health checks along with SMART for better piece of mind. I purchased additional RAM for the unit which makes it extremely snappy and responsive and so far it has done everything I have asked of it. The RAM was very simple to install. The 4 bays are more than enough for my needs and give me a lot of expansion options over the 2 bay model I upgraded from. The only downside is that unlike the older models there is no option to put the entire unit on standby, you can set the disks to spin down and the unit to shut off (requiring WOL to turn it back on) but you cant have it just automatically turn back on when you try to access it.
