Ease of Use

For the casual home user this is one of the best Network drives out there. It does everything, FTP Server, FTP uploader, Bit Torrent Downloading as a stand alone device, scheduled backup and lots more...Setup was easy... Will be buying a second one at this price... I am very satisfied...

-Richy quote

Ok, call me an idiot, but this add is very misleading, this is not a hard drive....only the enclosure. You will have to buy a hard drive to go in it. After the purchase of a hard drive, there are other "media servers" on the market that have more features for less money.
