Bought this on sale to house a pair of 7200 RPM drives. Setup was quick and easy. Not sure I trust the connector on port 0 of the SATA back plane, was seeing many timeouts during a Raid 0 remirror. Re-seated drives - problem went away.
It is a relatively low-cost two-bay NAS enclosure built with media streaming in mind. The OmniNAS KD20 lacks support for advanced features such as iSCSI targeting and can't be used as a web or FTP server; instead, it aims to make life as simple as possible for users who want their NAS to function as a media server, USB print server, simple backup target or even as a BitTorrent client.
This was the easiest NAS that I have setup. The web interface is very basic and easy to use. Drive installation is simple - place the drives in the trays and fasten with four screws. I installed 2x 3Tb WD Red drives in Raid 1. As soon as I had the NAS powered up, I set it up to transfer 980Gig of files from the drive on my htpc. Speeds were slower than advertised - about 35MB/s but this is more than adequate for media streaming and backups.
I plugged in a class10 SD card from my camera into the slot on the front and transferred about 5Gig worth of pictures at about 10MB/s (disappointing but acceptable)
This was a lot easier to set up and run then the D-LINK DNS-325 2-BAY NAS, and as easy to run as the WD My Book Live 3TB Personal Cloud. It is obviously better then the WD my book when running blue ray size movies to the WD Players around my house. Price was right for the ease, very pleased that this worked as expected without any hiccups. It's sad that I always expect hiccups with technology these day.
This is a slick little machine which provides quite fast transfer speed on my gigabyte network. it averages 35MB/s (I tested with a 1GB movie file which gets transferred in 28 seconds between my IMac and the KD20)
I have no problem streaming or playing media files through out my networked computers and media player. The cloud works like a charm when it comes to accessing my shared files from outside network. The web interface is easy to use...maybe too easy (see cons).
