Perfect storage and very fast/responsive
Ivan from Calgary writes:
- Very fast transfer rates, moved 2TB worth video in 4hrs. Quick access from any PC on my network.
- I dislike the warning that comes up when the drive is 95% full, there is still 280 gig free yet I have a red LED warning me to delete files...there should be a way to disable or at least warn when you are under 10 gigs.
- I almost didn't purchase the 2 that I bought due to reviews calling them "slow". As long as you have the proper hardware and understand how to properly setup your network, you will have absolutely no speed issues. The one review that took 3 days for 3TB?? Impossible unless there are major hardware bottlenecks on his side.

- - Works well once set up - Mobile app is handy and easy to navigate, but noticed lag when listing files even when connected to home WiFi - Great media streaming for all supported videos
- - Slow transfer for 3TB media (up to 3 days) over LAN, same on USB. - Poor product support. If you have the following questions, here are the answers. 1) Q: Can you use existing TimeMachine backup? A: You can't. The device only supports first time TMB setup. 2) Q: Can you use a multi-bay drive enclosure? A: No. The device only supports 1 drive per USB connection
- I was excited to purchase this device, until I couldn't sort out the 2 questions above. You really get what you pay for. This is a basic NAS and does the job OK once setup. Not meant to be a backup solution (and shouldn't be used as). Poor manufacturer customer service didn't make the experience better - level 1 follows a basic script for customers. I decided to keep the device and get something better in the future.
Fast Transfering/ Streaming Uploading 10/10

- I bought this a few years ago for some photos and videos, now i back up my mobile phone my whole laptop and much more to it. transfer rate is quick :) and fast easy to access anyone from a smart phone to a computer and to download from them and watch an view photos has never been simpler. ive attached a usb 2.0 2tb drive to it to make it a 6tb an works great for streaming your movies and files onto tv and tablets. very fast transfer rates! even from diffrent house has really bad internet.
- 10/10 works great for me. if its not working good for someone then they obviously didn't know how to set it up properly
Not worth it if you want fast access to your media
Steve from Calgary, AB writes:
- - Remote storage - Free cloud service with peace of mind that your files are physically stored in your home. - If you are on vacation and you want your at home could service active, but don't want to leave your computer on all week, or month or two, then this device is your answer. It consumes far less energy than a pc or a NAS server. Consider this if you want to upload your files to cloud storage periodically while you travel.
- - Incredibly slow transfer rates from PC to Device direct over the network (Hardwired) 2-5mbps - NOISY, reminds me of my HDD in my Pentium 100.... yes this Pentium reference dates back to 1995 - Very basic software
- Unless you want a NAS drive running 24/7 while you travel, to upload your photos and videos to your cloud service, while saving power, don't buy this drive. It is very slow, in an archaic sense. Not good at using as a storage device for your media and a NAS drive from your PC daily. Put your money into an internal NAS storage drive with the benefits of being connected by SATA, and enjoy the benefits of modern data transfer speeds.
Very stable NAS drive with nice options

- ° Neat little package ° Extremely fast read speed ° Fast reboot ° FTP and SSH access ° DLNA (Twonky) and iTunes Servers
- ° Slow write speed
- We purchased this to supplement our dwindling home digital storage. On first look, it's a nice package but not exceptionally complicated. Compared to our QNAP system, it's quite rudimentary. Fortunately, it works exceptionally well as a Twonky server and allows a multitude of devices to stream music and video with no noticeable hardware lag. It connects quite easily to Windows XP through 8.1 (haven't tested 10 yet) as a SAMBA drive.
