5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: This disk is my second netdisk I have on my rack. I purchased my first okgear netdisk about 3 years ago and it still rocks solid. This 352nd works great as a single disk or on raid. You have to note that it will takes couple of days for the raid to sync but after that you are good to go. I was having heat issue after I installed my second drive but a call to and email to support solved the problem as they fedex me a case fan. So far so good.

Cons: The little fan has no control. It just spins 24/7
The raid system needs to be improved. I have to punched holes on the case to provide good ventilation.

Other Thoughts: Will likely buy more in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsIOCell is aware of issues, Great Product otherwise

Pros: hundreds less than a nas, does all the same stuff.

Cons: software raid, but who cares, for the price, you can't beat it

Other Thoughts: IOCell is aware of the heating issues on this unit. They have a new model in manufacturing right now that has cooling vents all over and has a fan. I contacted their customer service before I bought one, they said if I got an older unit with no fan, send them the receipt and they will send a fan that fits in the unit, problem solved.
Bummer they didn't get it right the first time, but they identified the issue, came up with the solution, and carried it out. Can't ask for much more than that. Highly recommend.

1 out of 5 eggsMajor Design Flaws

Pros: It is a small enclosure that promises you the ability to have two hard drives, in a RAID 1 configuration, on your network. This looks like a nice unit, until you get it and realize all of the troubles this unit actually has.

Cons: 1. NO WAY TO COOL HARD DRIVE! - I have talked to IOCELL support about this several times. Basically this is the problem. The enclosure is plastic and the only airflow is two small side vents in the front and a hole in the back, where a fan is suppose to go. I spent countless hours trying to buy a fan for this enclosure but support told me that buying a fan is near impossible and that they don't even have any. This thing cooks HDs.

2. NETWORK STORAGE THAT ONLY ONE PERSON CAN CONNECT TO AT A TIME - I know this sounds ridiculous, but it is sadly very true. It should only be an issue if you are a Linux or Mac user, which is what I am. They told me this is the case and there is a fix coming someday, no ETA. If you look up NDAS on Wikipedia you will find this under the Issue section: Current Unix-like Operating system drivers for NDAS devices don't allow shared read and write access. In those environments it is not possible for multiple network devices to read and write the NDAS devi

Other Thoughts: I'm sorry but this device has serious design flaws that make it impossible to use.

2 out of 5 eggsCould be a great product!

Pros: 1. Great transfer speed. Because the softeware operates over layer 2 (the run their own L3 protocol on top of Ethernet), obviously they could achieve much lower overhead, which allows for faster read/write speed. With simple (no raid) configuration I could get upto 50 MBytes/s on my Seagate 1.5T drives with about 40 MBytes/s sustained over Gigabit Etherent. Needless to say I streams HD movies just fine.
2. Supports 1.5T drives.
3. Pretty stable software.
4. Very easy and fast to install and configure
5. Eclousure drives appear as internal drives on your PC and stay there untill you "Unregister" the drives or remove the software. Very convinient. You can even run HD health check tests like HD Tune, see your drives temperature and so on.
6. Supports Raid 1, Raid 0, Regular bundling. If you have more then one NDAS enclosure (1 or 2 bays) you can combine these drives as you wish in Raids or separate.
7. Supports Gigabit Ethernet, which allows for fast transfer speeds (see above)

Cons: 1. The enclosure will BURN YOUR DRIVES ALIVE!!! unless you modify it: add a couple of fans plus a LOT of holes. The enclosure is plastic, no fans, the drives are cramped next to each other. My Seagates were reaching their max operating temp of 60C after 30mins of reading/writing.
2. The Raid is processed by the PC driver. So the processing takes place on your CPU. When coping to Raid1 my Intell 2.4Ghz was running at 25-30% load. Which makes Raid configuration unusable for applications when you have to do a lot of writing to disk. I'm afraid even to think aboout rebuilding a 1.5T claster :) I believe read operation was not so bad, but still ...
3. When coping between the drives in enclosure data has to go through your PC where you register the device. The same applies to situation when you need to rebuild your Raid1 cluster: when you turn off your PC/laptopor or your PC LAN connection speed drops the RAID1 rebuilding stops or slows down.

Other Thoughts: I have not tested the multiuser environment.

Conclusion: It's a great, fast, easily expendable LAN storage for non-Raid environment IF you modify the case and add some colling fans.

I didn't want to bother, so back the enclosure went. After tryinng several LAN enclosures, I concluded that if you want a solid NAS, it would run you at least $600. All cheapy options like Dlink DNS and so on just give you problems, while still costing $200. Solution - build your own small PC and use it as NAS.
