1 out of 5 eggs I don't know if this thing is a piece of junk or defective... but not very pleased at all! 01/08/2014

This review is from: Shuttle KD20 Network Storage

Pros:

Small, decent build quality. Purchased at what seemed like a great price. Easy to access storage via hot-swap

Cons:

The software on this thing SUCKS! Even after the firmware update, the lack of options and inability to configure this thing using anything but basic methods is SERIOUS Fail! Purchase this for your grandma perhaps, but if you want options... look elsewhere. Purchased as storage/media device to stream my PLEX server while at work, and it CONSTANTLY crashes or enters some kind of sleep mode whenever I have to pause my music. Even rebooting PLEX on my system (which pulls files from the NAS via Samba share, after disabling NAS "sleep" settings... hard disks are not overheating) doesn't help. You can't do any kind of remote access with this thing unless you use an insecure password (no special characters period), and it has no way to remotely wake once the dumb thing does go to sleep. No WOL, I can't even use my Vera system to power it up using my phone because you have to manually power it on every time you want to boot it... and the only wake to wake it from sleep mode is... to be there to power it up.
Another Con: The constant high-pitched squeal of this thing gives me a headache. It's like putting your ear next to an old CRT monitor for hours.

Other Thoughts:

If you just need a device to sit as a backup for whenever something goes wrong on your main system, this thing probably will work for you. For any kind of power user who needs remote streaming abilities, and wants to actually do things with their NAS... Useless! You get what you pay for, and much less. I will be returning mine and will just bite the bullet to build a real NAS system.
