As a few other reviews stated it's slow. I can't get more than 10 MB/S write speed.

When I set the power switch to auto it will never wake up. I'm not using the bloatware that came with the product though so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I gave it a static IP on my network and mapped it as a drive.

I did reach out to support about these issues, but I never heard anything back. A quick search on their support forms showed my complaints were fairly common though.

Other Thoughts:

Overall it's a good unit and does what I need it to, I just wish I could figure out the auto power issue so I don't need to manually turn it off when I'm not going to use it for a while.

Manufacturer Response:

Please send me an email so we can trouble shoot your device. The 'Auto' feature is for use with the NASNavigator software. Basically the LinkStation will check the network for PC's running the NASNavigator software, and if there are none, then it will go into a sleep mode. Once a PC with the software is back on the network, then the LinkStation will wake and be available on the Network. In your case since you dont have the software installed, go ahead and leave it in the 'ON', position.
