Anthony, Peterborough

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very quiet, easy to set up & smaller than I expected.
Bad points:
No mention in the set up instructions about the packing around the hard drives, it was a good gob I opened the front cover before connecting. Hard drives are removable but it is not easy as they are very tight.

Danny, UK Interactive Content Developer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is very quiet, and very small - easily sits on my desktop. I use it to mirror my data as I work at home alot doing Interactive Content Development and it is a good back-up solution for me. So I have got 2TB Storage and mirror with the other 2TB. I have also set up an area to share on the internet when I am out and about to access my work. Now I have it set up the way I want it is a good solution for me. I have not got around to playing with the media server part yet.
Bad points:
Hmm... It was originally set up so that you could access the whole 4TB so I had to alter that which would be a bit daunting for a complete novice and the instructions were a bit unclear. A search on Google helped me moreso. After the first set up I changed the name of the beast on my Network and copied over a large amount of files. I started to get flashing lights and an info error - However, after reading the manual more closely in troubleshooting and on various forums found that it was only trying to index everything and was normal and to leave it alone. Overnight it sorted itself out and was fine.

The transfer rates can be a bit slow at times copying from PC to Drive and I found switching it off for 30secs and switching it back on sorts it out. I leave it on constantly...

Instructions could be more idiot proof really, especially on some of the other things it can do!
