"Everything the original reviewer said is correct."1.5 starson by monkeymonkey22
Pros: Fairly simple setup and robust tool set.
Cons: 1. Unbearably slow
2. Fan is the loudest of any device in my house including the refrigerator and it runs 100% of the time
3. Regularly needs to be rebooted because it becomes unresponsive.
Summary: I purchased this to use as a media server for my family to store mostly photos and music. Loading the files on to it from my other computers has been beyond tedious because of how slow it is and the fairly frequent hangs. I imagine it will be fast enough to play music from it but working with large file sets stinks. I have a ticket opened with Plextor support so I will return with the results of that discussion.
