"Not useful for family use"1.5 starson by PJMoore
Pros: Central storage
Cons: you cant always get to the storage
Summary: Purchased to assis in family setting with 2 wired PC and 4 wifi devices ( 2 laptops, TV-with media treasming, Xbox), I guess also 2 phones.
I had hoped this would allow everyone in the family to set up a folder and have access to their info from any device. Unfortunately connectivity is so poor no one will use it. I know how to manually re-run the discovery software (which is pretty poorly designed - if give little info on the problems and graphical design is so poor it looks like it is malfunctioning- but from the laptops ( wifi & win 7) even this will not connect to the device - even though the wired ones will. I travel for work and can not be an on call IT guy to the family.
Perhaps for a single computer networking proficient user - looking for bulk storage OK - but the multiple devices / and users - not worth it. I am looking to replace this item now.
