Steve, Southampton Frustrated customer

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Nice colour
Bad points:
It is advertised as being able to make your files accessible over the internet. However, the ‘cloud’ functionality is very temperamental, and is too slow to allow sensible access to files of any size. The remote access requires one to register a domain. The first year’s subscription for this is advertised as free. However, mine won’t work, and keeps suggesting I purchase a subscription! I have not been able to make contact with an actual human for any tech support from the manufacturer. Therefore, as I purchased this unit in order to make files assessable from remote locations, it is of no use to me! There are plenty of network drives available if you don’t want remote access. If you do, this is not the product for you.

Gerald, Pewsey User of MacBook Pro

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Price and specification is good.
Bad points:
Software is web-based, using ip addresses, which is not ideal for home users. The software, once you manage to download the appropriate version, is fairly straightforward. Network and shares management is complex for novices; the language and concepts are alien to home users.
