1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to use, easy to set up. Really liked all of the setting options

Cons: After doing a firmware update from LG's site following the directions that now causes the device not to boot. Called LG support and required me to do a factory reset (good thing this was only used for a back up ). After the factory reset did not work I have to send it back to them. Unlike the qnaps they do not have a boot disk to fix this your self it MUST be sent to LG if this was not under warranty this would be a $300 brick.

Other Thoughts: Just don't do a firmware update and you should be ok

4 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS, one problem

Pros: Good price, easy to use, decent performance (20MB write, 40MB read).

Cons: Do NOT save files to this NAS directly from your web browser. Save them locally then copy them up. If you save directly to the NAS and the file hasn't finished downloading by the time you pick the location and hit "save", the browser splits the file into two files - a placeholder and a .PART file where the download is being written to. This works fine when saving locally, but if you save directly to the NAS, it will corrupt the file with a few hundred bytes of zeroes somewhere in the middle of the file. I believe it writes them to the file when you actually hit "save", so the location of the zeroes depends on how large the file is, how fast your download is, and when you hit "save". Either way, it ALWAYS corrupts the file unless the file finishes downloading to your local cache before you pick a save location on the NAS.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Unit, lousy backup software

Pros: This is a nice unit with lots of features. It was easy to set up, has lot of capacity and the blue ray disk is a big plus.

Cons: The Comnso backup/restore software is really bad. Don't use it. The UI is annoying and it is very slow. The worst feature is that though you can back up data fairly well. You can not get it back. I have been tring for a month to restore a disk after a drive crash, to no avail. The tech help email bounces and their web site contains no information, just a static page in Korean

Other Thoughts: If you use some other backup software you will like this piece.

4 out of 5 eggsNo major issues

Pros: iTunes integration, ISO capabilities, fast transfer rates, USB flash drive connection, DVD-RW drive, Mac / PC / BluRay unit compatibility, basic set up is easy, multiple RAID options, easy to remove drives if needed, small size

Cons: DLNA set up is confusing

Other Thoughts: I can stream music to multiple computers at the same time without compromising quality, even when using the same file. I've not read other reviews but I have had no problems with this unit except setting up DLNA to my BluRay player but that's probably my lack of knowledge of DLNA. I've noticed no overheating, no sudden shut-downs or reboots. It doesn't auto turn on if there is a power interruption. I had an ISO file (video) that I stored on it then was able to burn the file to DVD using the built-in DVD-RW and it works great.

5 out of 5 eggsMORE Than I'd Hoped For!

Pros: Super easy set up
Quiet
Excellent web admin app
Many popular web/net services offered/supported (iTunes, Media Center, Torrents, etc.)

Cons: Full, printed manual not shipped with product (PDF download of full manual needed)
Firmware upgrade process is too manual (needed for admin password change patch)
USB, CD/DVD, SD backups not automatic (must twiddle with front buttons)

Other Thoughts: After a tragic loss of the "big" drive on our old Windows SBS 2003 Server, we needed a simple, safe solution for the remaining pictures, movies, and other family documents we were able to recover. We considered going with the BluRay version, but at $1 a GB for removable media versus about $0.30 a GB for external USB hard drives, this made more sense... and we always have the DVD/RW drive if we REALLY need to off-load the files to disc. I set the drives to MIRROR (RAID 1), and all is well.

VERY happy with the set-up. I taught my son and daughter how to set it up and manage it. Also, highly recommend purchasing a UPS with this and attaching the monitor cable via USB, as it gives you another layer of protection.

Out of the box, the firmware couldn't update the admin password. The upgrade process is manual (lg.com, product page, dl the ZIP of the SW, extract, upload via web interface to NAS, upgrade).

3 out of 5 eggsNot an enterprise solution

Pros: Fast transfer rate over gig connections, hard drives are easily accessed and replaced.

Cons: AD integration is just horrible. You can join the device to the domain but then nothing is acessible via SMB. You can leave it off the domain and create local accounts that use the same user name and password as your domain accounts which will give SMB access to domain accounts but the local device account character limit is only 12 characters so don't plan on making local accounts for your domain administrator account (and probably some of your service accounts). I bought this to use as a low cost backup destination for my existing automated backup applications but it took jumping through a ton of hoops to accomplish that and still restrict file access only to select accounts.

Additionally, although I was able to work around it, the management software provided was unable to find the device on the network. I was able to find the IP and access the web interface anyway but that's a problem for less technical people.

Other Thoughts: If the account name restrictions on the device more closely mirrored those of active directory it would have saved me a lot of hassle.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Purchased for backup purposes. Easy to setup and configure.

Cons: No iSCSI for the hard disks. Sometimes it has trouble connecting at 1Gbps and only connects at 100Mbps. I'm not sure why it does this.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded the firmware and my password had a non-alphanumeric key. I had no problem logging in after the upgrade to 2657.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS

Pros: A breeze to setup and comes with a built in DLNA server.

Security isn't an issue since the NAS is behind a router on a local network with no outside access allowed. Plus each folder can be password protected if need be.

Cons: None... really.

At least I can't find any yet.

Other Thoughts: When updating firmware, go to LG support site at http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=N2R1DD2 and get the firmware update there.

The firmware there different than what is listed on NewEgg. It's also out of date order so make sure you get the newest firmware.

I don't take a star away for this because it really didn't affect me or my system.

3 out of 5 eggsCaution! Before Updating Firmware

Pros: Overall we have been pleased with this NAS and it's performance. The browser interface gui for it is mediocre but functional with an extremely important CAVEAT in the Cons section.

Cons: BEFORE YOU UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE, be aware that if your admin password contains a non-alphanumeric character, which the out of the box firmware version allows you to set and use, once you upgrade (we upgraded to version 2647) you will NOT BE ABLE TO LOGIN. The web UI javascript deletes the entered password if it contains non-alphanumeric characters before it submits, responding with "please enter a password" as opposed to "incorrect password".

Contacted support and they said the web UI doesn't support non-alphanumeric characters in passwords, I said it did when I bought it, and they regrettably replied well it doesn't now. ONLY SOLUTION is to re-initialize the system which wipes out every thing and re-images. FRUSTRATING!

SO BE AWARE! Make sure your admin password does NOT contain non-alphanumeric characters BEFORE upgrading firmware.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat - USB a bonus

Pros: I installed 2 2 TB hitachi drives and although backup over the network is a little slower than I would like, over all great. The best feature I found was that I plugged in 2 BlacX external drive adapters (dual drive) with USB and firewire. I plugged both of them into the rear usb ports and they were instantly recognized. Now I have a 2 TB raid and access to 8 TB on the BlacX enclosures. I now jus copy a raid drive to one of the externals, and pull the external and store it off site on a regular schedule. bext part is the external drives drop into a BlacX enclosure anwhere and we have our files.

Cons: A little slow, Upgraded firmware and then reset raid configuration. It reverted back to old firmware. I put in 5400 RPM drives due to cost, but it is no faster or slower than the 7200 RPM drive it came with. It seems to have no affect on the over network speed.
