Cons:

Upgrade to DSM 4.2 or 4.3 Immediately Unless You Love Hitting your Head Against a Wall, Can Get Pretty Hot

Other Thoughts:

I bought this with a single 7200RPM 1TB drive to test drive it out for a office NAS. Pretty easy to setup. Joins and pulls domain users very easily and rather quickly if you need to throw it into a domain environment.

I threw an external 1TB drive on this thing back when I first got it (March 2013). The box would shut down from time to time and I would have to constantly keep an eye on the uptime. I decided to upgrade the firmware to 4.2, started performing better. I would log in every now and again to find a lovely 25+ day uptime before I power it powercycle it.

Upgraded to 4.3 7 days ago, it is still running fine. Even purchased a second 1TB drive for the second drive bay for redundancy.

In my experience, use this device for what you bought it for. Don't get all crazy with the cheese-wiz and have it run your firewall/streaming/vpm/nas..... thats just silly.

If I were using it personally, I might play around with it a bit more, but my users really depend on it. So it is a redundant NAS that is very reliable and pretty fast.
