Got this after my 3tb External Hitachi Touro interface broke - took the hitachi drive , paired it with another 3tb nice and cheap seagate and after transferring all my files connected it to the network and sat and start enjoying the media streaming.
I have organized my own shared folders for the pics, music and videos but unfortunately the twonky server didn't like that and every few days it reset all settings - pointing only to the default disk folder and forgetting my own settings. I tryed couple of times and even contacted suttle support - last I heard from them 2 weeks ago - they are working to reproduce my issue but problem is not fixed. So now I am rearranging all my media and backups to be in this stupid disk folder the way twonky likes it!
I bought this as a home media NAS, mostly for music. I use a Linux Mint machine as my primary computer and I couldn't get into the file transfer with Linux. I switched to a Windows box and it was easy to access and load the NAS. For the price of $69 I paid it seems like a great machine. I only have one WD Green 2 TB HDD loaded in it now and it is working swimmingly so far.
Got it for $70, amazing price for a NAS. It's very compact and stays quiet unless it being used constantly. Lacks an auto-off on schedule, but it does go to sleep after a amount of time (can be set). Cannot use 2 drives independently, will show up as 1 big volume. For the price you can't go wrong if you need something simple.
I always research before I buy and found good reviews on this item both on ncix and other sites. Was real easy to set up via the Finder software. Set as mirrored RAID with 2 seagate 3TB drives. added all my pictures, movies and videos from my various external drives and worked good with auto copy via front USB and sdcard slot. Although copy my 2TB USB drive took 24hrs. I am using XBMC Media Center 12.2 as a HTPC set up and working real good through my network. Also using on my android and apple devices via free Apps from Shuttle, The Apple devices won't play my dvd back ups.I would say well worth getting. I have an older Dlink DNS 323 and was ok with this item just wanted to add more storage and DNS323 does not have android/ipad apps.
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.
