Some customer reviews of Seagate Business Storage 4-Bay NAS

Most helpful reviews

Iain, Milton Keynes

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great if you just want a storage solution with no fancy extras.

If & when the drives fail, similar 4GB replacements will be significantly cheaper to make the unit very good value.

It connects to my Windows domain so I can use single sign on.
Bad points:
I re-configured it for RAID10 & it took about 60 hours to build the array.

The software is supplied on a DVD because it will not fit on a CD & it has a similarly large installation.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. No issues in last month.

Recycle bin can only be accessed through web, not mapped drive.

Although it is a 8TB (Raid 5, 4x2TB) drive, only 5.5TB is usable.
