Features
The Business Storage 2-bay NAS includes government-grade hardware encryption technology that helps protect data stored on the NAS. When you access files remotely, the 2-bay NAS also helps protect your data-in-flight with SSL/TLS, the same technology that secures your information when banking online.

The 2-bay NAS features a Universal Storage Module (USM) slot that makes it incredibly simple and cost-effective to create off-site backups of your data. Start by docking a Seagate Backup Plus portable drive in the USM slot. With a touch of a button, you can transfer large files at speeds up to 3x faster than USB 2.0. Undock your portable drive and data, and you're ready to take your files with you or to a secure, off-site location.

The USM slot is also convenient for photographers, videographers and other professionals who routinely bring back large files from the field. Use a Backup Plus portable drive throughout the day and when you're back at the office, slide the portable drive into the USM slot and-with a touch of a button-all of your work is transferred to a designated folder on the 2-bay NAS.

1 out of 5 eggsKeep moving

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: It is fairly easy to setup, which is good since I've had to do this multiple times.

Cons: Mostly everything. This thing is awful. I have had a few different problems like the refusal to shut down when email alerts are turned on. And now last night it just completely erased all settings and thought my two drives, with many many GB's of data were brand new drives and wanted to wipe them clean. I have no idea if this is recoverable, but do not buy this thing. Spend the money to get something with more solid reviews.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it. Find a different storage solution. I haven't tried any of the other brands, but I know there are some that get much more consistently good reviews.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: Excellent design, easy to setup, hard drive setup is tool-less. Has a 3rd port that laptop hard drives can be plugged into, but I've not tried it out.

Cons: 25mb/s actual transfer rate max. get 100mb/s transfer rates from pc to pc on my network, but those pc's are only going up to 25 to the STBN100. They go down to 12-13mb/s if both pc's are transfering data to it. It's currently setup in round robin mode, maybe will try later in single mode. Fan is a bit annoying, sort of a squealing sound to it.

Other Thoughts: It's transferring and responding faster than other NAS devices I've tried. Moved almost 2.4 tb's of data onto it, took about 14 hours. It will be used to backup client's fotos on a weekly basis, so the speed is fine. Hope it lasts a long time.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Shane,

We first wanted to provide our centralized link for help with setup, usage, installation, and troubleshooting of your Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS. This includes our complete User Guide. Please reference the link below:

http://goo.gl/wmYHgE

We wanted to provide some suggestions to optimize your network performance. First, please make sure that your computer is connected to your router with a CAT-6 cable and that you are not using WiFi. WiFi is much slower than using an Ethernet cable. Also make sure that your Ethernet card on your computer, router, and any other device connected to your network is using Gigabit ethernet. Your network will only run as fast as your slowest piece of equipment.

Additionally, check to see if there are any firmware updates available for the drive and your router. Please check for any driver updates from the motherboard manufacturer of your computer. Click on the link below for instructions on how to update the firmware for the Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS:

http://goo.gl/TGIacp

If you are still experiencing slow transfer rates, try plugging the drive directly into a computer with a Gigabit ethernet card and see if your speeds improve. Should the performance improve, then it is likely there is a network bottleneck unrelated to the drive itself.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact our support staff and we will be happy to assist further:

3 out of 5 eggsSeagate NAS STBN100

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: Decent NAS for the price. Easy to install and setup. It has a lot of features, including support for NFS, CIFS, WEBDav, and FTP. I have this configured with two 3TB drives on RAID 1. Web interface has good features allowing users to setup permissions on created shares. This Seagate NAS has two Gigabit NIC interfaces which allows for NIC teaming: NIC fail-over and round robin.

Cons: This would have been a perfect NAS solution, however, despite having 1 Gb NIC interfaces, I only get a maximum of 25 MB/s. Even with NIC teaming (round-robin setup) enabled i get about the same speed.

I've only had this for a week, so I'm hoping there may be other forums I can peruse somewhere that can help me increase transfer speeds.

I've seen people in forums say they have are getting around 50 MB/s file transfer speeds, but so far I have not been able to achieve the same speeds.

This NAS gets hot after a while. Drives, when removed after several of hours of use, becomes very hot. Even on idle, the device system status shows temperatures at 39 C/102 F.

Other Thoughts: All-in-all I would say this is a good product for most users for home use. However, if you are using this as a backup solution and you have TBs of backups that you need to run daily, I would suggest you save more money and buy something else that is more capable. Otherwise, you can just work around this issue by setting up incremental backups.

2 out of 5 eggsReliability questionable

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: Seems very good out of the box.

Did what I needed it to do until they die.

Cons: This is the 2nd Se agate Business NAS we have had the first one was an previous model and it failed when it was out of warranty.

I ended up replacing it with the new generation and unfortunately this one became unresponsive and then died. Fortunately it is under warranty and is being replaced.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a reliable Business NAS I would suggest spending a little more money and getting a Synology or other higher end and allegedly more reliable device.

3 out of 5 eggsPower Issue - Update to my 11/12/2013 review

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: See 11/12/2013 post

Cons: Buggy firmware

Other Thoughts: There appears to be a bug in the firmware of this unit that affects it's ability to power off. If email notifications are set to "ON" it will not power down from the management interface nor the power button. Disable email notifications and the problem goes away.

The latest firmware is Firmware version: 2013.​60311
Release Date: August 2013

Seagate has had over 4 months to fix this issue but so far, there is no firmware update.

2 out of 5 eggsOK, but not great

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: Seems to work pretty well.

Cons: Not very fast. Began to get more and more sluggish over time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear JC,

There could be a variety of reasons for the slow network performance. First, please make sure that your computer is connected to your router with a CAT-6 cable and that you are not using WiFi. WiFi is much slower than using an Ethernet cable. Also make sure that your Ethernet card on your computer, router, and any other device connected to your network is using Gigabit ethernet. Your network will only run as fast as your slowest piece of equipment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS for a VMWare Lab

This review is from: Seagate Business Storage 2-Bay Diskless NAS (STBN100)

Pros: Dual Network ports
Dual USB3 ports
Hot-Swappable
SSL Encryption
iSCSI support

Cons: Management software leaves a little to be desired. It works fine, but could be improved. Power Switch doesn't seem to work, but that is not a big deal to me, since this is a NAS (and you can power down via the management console.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this purchase. I bought it during a ShellShocker deal & got a great price. I needed something with iSCSI support & this fit the bill perfectly. I have not experienced any problems with it, and I would recommend this to anyone needing to buy a small-capacity NAS.
