"Works fine for what it is."3.0 starson by hc2255
Pros: Installation problem easily fixed by calling product support. Easily attaches to router and network. The subscription is only $20 per year. Free Hipserv App for the iPhone/iPad and Android. Quiet. Plenty of USB connections for additional storage.
Cons: Flash interface -- ugh! Give me the folders/subfolders interface I've been using for 20 years.
Summary: I paid about $125 for this. It works fine if you really want to stream your music and photos to whomever. The free Hipserv app easily connects it to your phones or tablets. I paid the $20 subscription just to see what it does and, by the way, I have $20.
I'm not really into all that media streaming and just wanted to create my own cloud server to back up my computer rather than send it off to the strangers who run Carbonite. I haven't figured out how to do that with this device and haven't turned it on in months.
I had the exact opposite experience with the Iomega drive that someone mentioned. Although it was beautiful gun-metal black, it wanted me to do some kind of manual port forwarding that I don't remember how to accomplish. If my slingbox could figure that out 5 years ago I don't know why Iomega needs me to figure out how to do it manually in 2011.
