This review is from: Seagate STCU8000100 8TB NAS 4-Bay Network Storage
Pros: 8GBs of storage
Very little heat
Drives seem very fast
Multiple user friendly
Cons: Lack of documentation
Wrong web URL for setup (I mean, seriously?)
Only warranted for 3 year
Other Thoughts: Well, it's all the about the setup which is done automatically on line. That is once you find it. Not sure I like the "cloud" setting up my stuff. After the initial surprise at the lack of documentation and web support it somehow does work. And I must admit quite well. I've practically forgotten about it, which is a good thing.
Not much more to say, it does what it's supposed to do...hold a lot of data, connect to my network (private and public) serve and backup files. A bit concerned about only a 3 year warranty for an archive product. Time will tell.
At the moment I am very happy with Seagate STCU8000100 8TB NAS 4-Bay Network Storage
Pros: Extremely quiet
Gives off very little heat
Cons: Expensive (but does have extra encryption/secure erase feature)
Other Thoughts: Perfect for archived storage as the 5900RPM is not the fastest though admittedly the overall throughput seemed perfectly adequate. So, yes, a fine large HDD for a NAS array. Photographers and video editors should be ecstatic. Recording of surveillance systems, etc, you get the idea.
I transferred some files and programs from one computer to another using this drive in sneaker net mode and had no issues with the data.
And security concerns are eased with the self encryption/decryption built in. I do however, wish Seagate would guarantee their enterprise drives for 5 years.
