Pros Breath of fresh air as compared to the D-Link DSM series I've been using over the years. Don't what the other users mean by Windows 7 problems. Mine works flawlessly. Works excellent with NAS and and a UPNP server. Reads all video formats!
Cons Poor draft-N wireless performance. Needs a GB Ethernet interface! Large HF file xfers to internal hard drive takes hours. HD only accessible in unit. Special HD format not accessible when plugged in as E-SATA drive. HD format should support NTFS.
Summary All in all, a great unit! a breath of fresh air in terms of functionality and usability, especially over the D-Link DSM series media servers. The areas where this unit are lacking only come into play once in a while, but not when streaming videos. I'm replacing all my D-Link units with these.
Pros Great concept and design. 500GB hard drive is very good.
Cons Always crashing, does not work with windows 7. Always have to reconnect wireless setup if PC is lefted off for too long. Does not stream media well with wireless setup.
Summary Unit always crashing and losing connection to PC. After I upgraded to windows 7 unit would not reconnect to PC. Network connection is working but streaming from PC would not work. Started loading files to portable hard drive and transferring to the unit via usb connection, but some movie files, which played fine on the PC have no sound on the Netgear ELite. I give up. I have it for sale in my local newspaper.
