Pre-configured isn't exactly true
The box came, cables got hooked up, booted up the box. Then an annoying and persistent buzzer-like noise came from the box which didn't stop until I turned it off. I then read the instructions more carefully and decided the software installation was necessary. When that was done, the box booted up finally without the noise. BUT. The software detected that 1 of the 2 drives needed rebuilding, with the remaining drive apparently in RAID1 (SAFE) configuration instead of the stated Spanning (BIG). So now I'm the 3+ hour process of the software rebuilding the remaining drive.(although this duration might have been reduced if I had a USB 2.0 card on my computer) As for performance and stability... well, I'll have to see.
