I placed the order as this is the best value for the price. This has Wake On LAN feature which great, you can leave it plugged in all the time and let it go to suspend mode if you are not using it. You can wake it up by WOL request. Only problem with this is that reviewers said its too slow, a lot slower than regular USB.

With a powerful CPU and sufficient memory, the ZyXEL NSA320 2-Bay Power Media Server can quickly transfer, backup and stream large multimedia files at the same time. Its superior data read/write rate is up to four times faster than most generic network storage appliances. The NSA320 also handles multiple simultaneous 1080p high-definition streams to different UPnP and DLNA-certified devices such as Microsoft XBOX360, Sony PS3 and DLNA TV in every room at home.

Great net drive

by Chris on 11/8/2011

The NAS320 is a very easy device to setup. I opened the box pulled out the case applied two 1.5TB hard drives in a snap and was ready to go! I then used the provided CD to setup the drive on my network and it worked like a champ. I would say this is one of the easiest drives to use and does not consume much power and is very quite. The purchase price was very attractive. I would reccomend this to anyone. Read More

    With a powerful CPU and sufficient memory, the ZyXEL NSA320 2-Bay Power Media Server can quickly transfer, backup and stream large multimedia files at the same time. Its superior data read/write rate is up to four times faster than most generic network storage appliances.

    The NSA320 features rich server technologies for multimedia sharing. Acting as an iTunes server, SqueezeCenter, personal blog and photo album server, the NSA320 can simplify streaming and sharing multimedia on PCs, laptops and SqueezeBoxes.

    Faster data backup with NTFS support
    With the NTFS drivers built-in, the NSA320 provides high-speed data transfer rate (read/write rate) for NTFS-formatted external hard drives. It efficiently saves time to back up your data, photos, music and videos among your PC, NSA and external hard drives.

    Intuitive user interface integrated with media player
    With the user-friendly installation wizard, it's easy to manage and backup media files on the NSA320. You can also play music and slide shows directly from the NSA320 through the intuitive user interface integrated with a media player.

    The NSA320 allows you to create a music playlist to play on the background of your slide shows. A newly designed alphabetical search bar provides you with a more convenient way to search within thousands of songs, photos and videos stored on the NSA320.

    zPilot™ for media auto-classification by easy drag-and-drop
    The zPilot™ auto file classification function of the NSA320 enables you to easily store and manage media files through simple drag-and-drop operations. With the zPilot™ software installed via the NAS Starter Utility, you can drag one or more files/folders onto the desktop icon of zPilot™, and the files/folders will be identified and delivered automatically to the music, photo, video or other designated folders on the NSA320; users can easily check the data upload status during the process.

    Click and select to easily enhance features for network application needs
    The user-friendly Web-based NSA320 utility makes it easy for users to enhance its features in minutes. Users can customize their preferred applications with just a few clicks via the "Package Management", and the selected application software will be downloaded from ZyXEL Web site and installed automatically. It reserves storage space for applications you require and offers real-time application software support according to your needs. In addition, users can immediately download the latest firmware from ZyXEL Web site to the NSA320 through the online auto-upgrade firmware service.

    Powerful auto download/upload platforms freeing up your PC The NSA320 allows users to continuously download large files using eMule, BitTorrent, FTP or HTTP services without powering on their PC. The auto-upload function enables NSA320 to automatically upload files stored in the NSA to FTP servers or other media sharing Web sites like Flickr and YouTube – a very efficient way to share files with friends and family.

    Green media server for energy saving A new green feature dubbed "Wake-on-LAN" enables users turn on the NSA320 and access media files remotely anytime and anywhere, even when the device at home is powered off. In addition, with support to the hibernation mode, the internal hard disks in the NSA320 can automatically spin down when there is no data transmission after a period of time. With the power scheduling function, the NSA320 can be turned on or off automatically based on your usage patterns and needs to conserve power and expense.
