Some customer reviews of Zyxel NSA320

Most helpful reviews

Yozzer , Newcastle

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. Lots of basic and advanced features. Solid construction for a cheaper NAS. Downloadable plugins and regular firmware updates from Zyxel. Can even be user modded if you know Unix.
Bad points:
Fitting drives can be a bit fiddly. Remember to put rails on drives first. Can be a little bit of a hum from the fan but not a lot.

Darren, LEICESTER Heavy media user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
You choose what disks you want to put in it. Not as big of a footprint as some others. Transfer speeds are a lot better than some other similarly priced NAS boxes - average 80MBps across Gigabit LAN.
Bad points:
Need to tape front panel on as does vibrate. Not as easy as some of the off the shelf NAS boxes to configure unless you are experienced with NAS. Media server can drop off at random times requiring Twonky to be restarted. Loses all settings when firmware update carried out so back them up before doing so!

Chris, Ashford IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This unit is light and easy to set up, drives are easily added and removed where needed using plastic drive rails which mount on the hard drive using screws provided. Front cover is easy to remove for access. Additionally can email you weekly reports of the drives activity along with error reports of failed drives etc. Smooth and quiet in operation.
Bad points:
This works with the Apple Mac as a NAS drive in NTFS format, however is not really easy to set up as a Mac Nas Drive. CD provided allows easy configuration for the Fixed IP address and other network configuration.
Manual refers to working with SATA II (Sata 2) but does not say anything on Sata III (Sata 3) Manufacturer has been contacted and their ticket I raised with them was only replied to 1 month later, so still awaiting full answer. There is no reason as to why it should not, however NAS drives have their own CPU or main board, so it depends if this supports the speed and interface and if the SATA III drive parameters are in the firmware. SATA II drives are getting harder to find, so hopefully this unit can be upgraded.

Ray, Sheffield IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
very easy to use and install disks / RAID etc.
However, there is a small plastic handle which I couldn't make fit behind the front plastic bezel once I had fitted to the 2 disks in to the unit.... still, I like the unit and it was a doddle to setup.
The DNS name made it particularly easy as I didn't need to know its IP address to login to it. (http:\\NSA320)
