GeeDeezy said: I stick with QNAP and Synology. Don't trust my critical data to off-brand devices. Don't think those are in the same category. Those are Network Attached Storage (NAS), so anyone on your network (PCs, TV,s etc) can access it, this one does not appear to support ethernet (only USB and Sata) so for me it does not work. If I only had one device needing access it might be good.
SteelRing said: this is not NAS, you plug it into eSATA port and it gives you 4 more bays to stick your drives into. If you want to RAID it or anything it's all going to be software-based from your PC.
According to the Specs, this is incorrect, at least the part about the RAID. It appears that the RAID aspect is built in on this box.
