Nice Little NAS!

I bought this NAS back in January 2013 when it was on special offer as a bundle with a 2TB WD Red HDD. Like others here it was a breeze to set up and it has performed faultlessly ever since. I haven't used it to it's fullest extent but everything I have used has worked perfectly. Although now discontinued it is well supported by Zyxel with new firmware being issued twice in the last 12 months. The built in software includes automatic podcast downloads, emule, bittorrent and a full Wordpress site as well as the usual backup, music streaming functions. I am so pleased with it I will be buying another 2TB drive to fill it up. Highly recommended.

Great little NAS

My first step into NAS so went for this cheaper unit.Fitting the HDs is simple enough.
A wizard takes you through the setup process and it was done in minutes.
Any drives you use that have data on them will be formatted (you are warned of this) so i had to remove one to transfer data off first.
I found the software confusing at first but finally got it all set up as i wanted.
You can install a squeezbox server and itunes server which is what im using it for.Works like a dream.Only downside is the fan can be heard but i will be moving the NAS where it cant be heard.

Everything seems fine. Fast transfer and fairly easy to use. Twonky dlna server isn't great, (I can't get subtitles on LG tv), so I have install Serviio and now everything is fantastic. On a down side the fan is little noisier than you'd like it.

This box is small and setting it up was a doddle. The web iterface is good, and as they say, "it just works". The only downside is the fan is a bit noisier than I'd hoped, you'd want to keep it in a cupboard under the stairs rather than in the living room.

Everything is great except for size of external drives supported

Everything about this is great except for the fact that currently it does not support anything greater than 2TB via USB. They are working on a fix via a firmware upgrade but it isn't there as I write. This gives me a problem as I am running 2 WD 3tb red drives in raid 1 so I can't copy them to one disc easily.

There are a few niggles but nothing else to really worry about. Speed is great and setup easy.

I particularly like the copy and sync to external drives at a touch of a button which works really well. I get round the external 2tb problem by using 2 drives.
