Most helpful reviews

Pete, Eastbourne

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy setup and user interface. Smart look and compact design. Works seamlessly as my music server picked up in my iTunes and sent to my wifi speaker setup. I also stream films via my laptop to my HDTV - until I have a smart TV. All works seamlessly and I experience no drop out of degradation in quality.
Bad points:
Only downside is the noise. Not a constant noise but every few minutes it makes a hdd spinning noise and as I have it situated within my TV unit it is a bit irritating. If you are able to locate away from quiet living (or sleeping) areas then I would recommend you do as can be annoying.

Neville, Exeter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, Easy to set up, Can access it via Web from Phone and other PC's as well as via the LAN.
Bad points:
Not sure if it was this unit or my broadband router but struggled to get Web access to work. Couldn't get it to work simply using UPnP but managed eventually by manually configuring port forwarding.

Daniel, London IT Professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The device offers basic features but has a simple interface, good build quality and is hard to beat in terms of value for money for a 1 drive NAS
Bad points:
Lacks some more advanced features such as AD integration and hidden shares and doesn't have the flexibility you would get with a more powerful system.
