Performance

I bought this NAS based on some of the reviews and the price. The setup was pretty simple and straight foward. The web interface is pretty crappy to say the least. For example, to access any of the multiple functions you need different web addresses as opposed to accessing a main page then navigating to the sub functions. After setup the NAS, I started noticing that the web interface would take a long time to connect and initially. I thought there was an issue with my home wireless, but I found that restarting the NAS would resume normal ops, but this continued. I then flashed the firmware with the same results. After a week of this painfull experience I sent it back.

super fast and easy to understand and setup. I loaded it with 2 WD 3TB HDDs. I would buy it again.
