"Does what its advertised to do for good price."4.0 starson by dschoemaker
Pros: Plug in and follow directions and its easy to use.
LOTS of room for expansion of storage.
Cost effective solution for home user.
Cons: Not able to plug in free standing driver to copy directly to/from via eSata port.
No hard copy directions - you have to use the guide on the computer, which you can only access about half way through set up.
Not a fan of the interface for movies.
Summary: I'm not sure why other folks are having such a hard time with this. I plugged it in and it has been backing up my computers with no problem. I am able to access the music files and video files from remote locations using all the included software. ... its not as graphically pleasing as I would want, but its functional and works.
I have two desktops at home, a laptop, two x-boxes and an itouch. It works with all of them as advertised.
I'm going to be VERY VERY selective in what add-ins I put on this though, as there is really no way to tell what's going to "break" the software.
For $650.00 its a resonable solution to backup and a VERY nice option for storing/streaming all of my media. But before you think that's ALL its going to cost don't forget to start including the extra drives your giong to install. :) Your really looking at a box that's going to run you closer to $1,000 with @7 TB of storage.
Thanks for your submission!
