Beware of this unit! Like many NAS units there are problems with Snow Leopard's AFP mount. Other vendors have new firmware to fix the issue. However, LG doesn't seem to committed to their unit. You cannot even find the firmware on their website. And when you call customer service you get a polite but useless 'drone.' I am very disappointed. :-( Also note that the unit does not appear to have any drive sleep after inactivity or Wake-On-Lan settings. Why a company would produce a NAS without these now is beyond comprehension. Overall, it looks like I am going to have to return this to Buy.com.

Ok, so I have been looking for external RAID1 storage for a while. I've tried three different devices and not been happy. Most consumer level NAS devices are not truly fault tolerate as they have proprietary raid and/or they put the raid info on the disk itself and its not auto-detectable. This devices runs linux, which I happen to be an expert and uses metadevices for raid devices. These are auto-detectable so if you pulled both disks out and put into a linux server, and ran mdscan, you'd recover the raid. I've been running this for three days now, with over 300GB used out of 908GB usable (I setup RAID1 of course). With 500gb USB drive on my Dell Hybrid I was only getting 2-4Mb/sec. With this LG NAS device I'm getting 14Mb/sec consistently. I've been able to stream movies to my playstation3. I could not get streaming to work on my Android phone (no biggie). I use microsoft synctoy to backup my files to a backup share which is private and have all my media under media share which is public. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that You can only define ONE DNLA capable share... so you have to put you music and movies under one parent folder.... again, not a big deal. Overall, I'm extremely impressed with overall design and performance of this. 1. QUIET, shockingly quiet 2. It runs cool, fans work well 3. LED display is very nice 4. web admin interface is nice, not great 5. the front flips open and the drives are hot swappable 6. 1GB NIC and write performance is great I cannot speak for MACs, but for Windows and Playstation, it works great. However, it does not work with my HTC Evo, due to browse call not supported on my phone.

Product Overview

LG Super-Multi NAS N2R1DD2 which is a data storage that is attached to a network rather than to a PC.

This is great because you can quickly copy important data to a DVD discs if you need them on the go or if you want to store important data and store somewhere for a safe keeping. As an added feature, LG NAS also has a built-in four-in-one memory card reader, three USB ports, and eSATA port for adding additional storage devices or connecting mobile devices such as external hard drives and MP3 players.
