Tim, Dorking

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Seems to be a solid workhorse. Fairly easy to setup.
Bad points:
This model takes a long time to prepare theRAID. I set up with 4x3TB drives and it took a good 24hrs + to format. It also didn't see one of the drives at first so it had to be added after the initial format.

However it works well once it is configured. If you are considering this model look at the 421 which has a faster processor and 1gig RAM.

I also have a 659 pro that came with the drives installed. This is worth thinking about as it took a much shorter time to setup.
