4 out of 5 eggs Reliable NAS 03/20/2013

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


Very easy to setup with lots of features and tons of documentation.

Very flexible configuration for home or business use. Security can be setup per user/folder plus RAID 1.
Very stable connection - used 2 Seagate HDD 1Tb, 64 Mb cache in RAID 0. Writing constantly with 2.5 Mb/s wirelessly connected to the router while stressing it with 4 devices(2 desktops, iPhone and tablet) wired and wirelessly playing and copying from it small files.

Unfortunately I couldn't test the scheduled backup feature - see cons. Overall a very nice reliable NAS to have around home or small business.

Nice features NAS-to-NAS backup to secure data offsite and the One-Touch NFS backup for emergencies. For backup it uses an Acronis backup software which is a plus.


Runs a little bit hot and the fan can get a little loud.

Missing the activation keys for "Seagate BlackArmor Backup 2011". Should have pre-configured 5 licenses stored on NAS - will update this once I get their feedback.

A little bit confusing the Global Access configuration with TappIn
Agent, but compensate with the clear documentation found on their site.
