This review is from: ZyXEL NSA310 Diskless System 1-Bay Media Server
Pros: Very easy to setup.
Boots in less than a minute, shuts down in 15sec.
Supports a lot of protocols and has a bunch of nice little features
Cons: Limited configurability, if you create a NAS volume for example, it's not accessible via FTP/HTTP/SMB.
It has a small app that is supposed to auto-download files from the web, but does not support HTTPS nor directory listings, making it kinda useless.
I wish the spec could be more open allowing people to install Linux or OpenNAS.
IF you plan on keeping this thing on all the time, be aware that the vent can be a little noisy.
Discoverable only by windows machines and/or via SMB (OSX and Linux too). I can't ping it simply by host name.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to backup my computers using rsync, and for that it works reasonably well (I created a NAS volume which I mount on each machine)READ FULL REVIEW
