"Great product for experienced network users"4.0 starson by redcircle
Pros: No software required. Accessible via SMB on LAN and by HTTP and FTP over the Internet. Can be used as a USB print server, or to host a second external USB hard drive. Gigabit LAN.
Cons: Setup is not intuitive. I didn't use the included CD so not sure what it does, but software-free setup required first finding the IP# (using my router utility), then entering it in Web browser, then configuring via so-so interface. Cannot be connected via
Summary: End users with network configuration experience will love this device as much as I do. May not be the best choice for a networking novice. I'm not a hard-core Linux user, but this device looks like its basically a Linux based server, with the OS embedded on a chip in the network housing.
