Quick and simple installation allows you to instantly st.Reviewed by: cclyde311 from TX on Nov 24, 2004

Experience: 1 Days

Strengths: Very easy to install and configure. Very small footprint. Enough status LEDs to inform you, but not confuse you.

Weaknesses: Software doesn't adjust fonts/etc well to differing screen sizes. Some menus/buttons can't be read.

Summary: I had this product installed and running in less than 10 minutes. The web interface is easy to use, and it comes ready to go. Of course, one should always change the defaults and add a password for security.

The web interface is intuitive and easy to navigate. The software installation was easy, but the fonts were very oversized on my machine, making many of the buttons illegible. With the little Quick Setup Guide, it was still easy to run through quickly.

Strengths: -Easy network storage setup (though not for the print server) -Fairly quick -Looks great -Great value -On and off button (not all NAS have this feature!)

Weaknesses: -Setting up the print server aspect is not for a beginner -Documentation not the best (but not needed much) -Will not recognize a USB thumb drive when used with the USB port (Tech Sup confirmed this

Summary: (Edited April 04th by nycgraeme) I am definitely happy with this device and would recommend it for anyone needing a good NAS device. The print server is a nice bonus even if not that easy to setup for a newbie. Great style and value make it a winner. Complaints are listed above and fairly minor.

Strengths: Very easy to setup and use. Got it working as network file storage in less than 30 mins.

Weaknesses: Manual, typos in program dialog boxes

Summary: This product works as I wanted. I got it to act as a file server so I could synchronize data between laptop and desktop using Windows XP briefcase. Setup was very easy, pop in a disk, change name of drive, update time and date, create a network place. So far it works very well.
