Most helpful reviews

Gary,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fair sized footprint for what it does
Decent failsafe with data retention (tested with a number of junk files and pulling drives randomly / swapping capacities).
Bad points:
Price was a bit more than I'd have liked to have spent - but data retention doesn't come cheap I guess.

Andy, Aberdeen Fast, Easy, Quick, Simple

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy of set up and installing the drives. Software is slick in OS X lightyears ahead of the Netgear & WD NASs I had before. Super fast even with average HDDs I get Thunderbolt-like speeds.
Bad points:
Nothing of note, wished I'd upgraded sooner
