Very nice unit

by A customer on 3/4/2011

The Linkstation is a very decent network storage device. Previous reviewers indicated is was speedy. I discovered the same thing when transferring a huge directory from the server to the Linkstation. I was very pleased with the performance. The web interface is a bit slow. It doesn't respond immediately when you choose a link. Some other issues are that the integration with Active Directory could be better and the way you set up an external drive to use for backups is less than user friendly. It threw errors that gave me no clue as to the real problem. I finally found out that the external drive must be formatted a certain way in order to be used, it can't be NTFS. I chose EXT3 and it now works great. Managing the access rights to the folders was also not as easy as you might like and you don't have the same rights options you do when setting those rights in Windows. Overall the unit works very well and, for the price, is an excellent choice for a small non-enterprise network storage device.
