NAS expansion...

on 9/7/2012

I was looking for a way to expand my home network without spending $200 on a complete out of the box NAS with drive. I hooked this up to my router and my portable USB drive and it worked as a charm. For remote access you just have to follow the directions on setting up the features for Samba / Webdav depending on your preference. You also need to do some port forwarding to the device to get through your router's firewall of course as well to access your storage device remotely from anywhere.

Do not purchase this device if you have a large demand or many gigabits of photos. If you plan to stream home movies and they are large or uncompressed this device will fail. It is a bit better then the discontinued pogoplug in that I haven't had a disconnect while using it, but I have had files fail to transfer if they were too large. I have had the best experience using a spare computer to do be a personal NAS, the USB 2 limitation also prevents you from using the speed of a USB 3 external drive, though it will work. If you have a small collection this device might be fine for you. The included software is old and pointless. If you can figure out the device IP or name on your own you can use the web interface instead.
