Nice and cheap NAS solution – Standalone BitTorrent BT Client + USB/NAS/FTP/SAMBA/Printer/UPNP Sharing Network LAN Server Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good price. Very small. Easy to use. You better update your firmware to have English UI (look for the link in this page)
Cons:
The CPU of this device is not strong so don't except high rate of information transforming. I found out that it's better to use ext3 format rather than fat32 or NTFS. From my tests, NTFS is the slowest format for this device. UNICODE support is not so good unless you will format and start using the HD from scratch with this device.
Other:
In order to access the NAS from Windows 7 client, you need to change the security setting. Since Windows7 requires at least 128Bit securing and this NAS does not support it. Go to: Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy Local Policies - Security Options Network security: LAN Manager authentication level Send LM & NTLM responses Minimum session security for NTLM SSP Disable Require 128-bit encryption That's it - now it should work!
Bottomline:
It's a good product from a home based NAS. Not good for high rates streaming but for local storage of photos, mp3 and small videos - it's great.
