Pros: This is a very promising product for me to edit large uncompressed HD video projects. For that use, swapping multiple industry grade hard drives with a reasonable care in storage and handling seems a far cheaper and simpler alternative than keeping them all online in a Thunderbolt RAID, with better performance.
Cons: I am puzzled by the manufacturer stated 2TB capacity limit in this day and age. Yes 2TB is still a lot, but I wonder if this is a hard limit or just they did not get to test with 4TB yet, or the limit only applies to a subset of OSes. I wish there was any data on this, from the manufacturer or other users. I would feel better about the device.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR EVA9150-100NAS Digital Entertainer Elite
Pros: This box supports the most formats of any other player, by far, including full-bandwidth (40Mbps) blu ray backups. It also plays streaming video from youtube and other sites (including HD videos) without relying on any computer. 802.11n is included with flat internal antennas. You can add an internal hard drive (via a front panel door and a well implemented cage). Nice remote.
Cons: The list of supported hard drives is small - be sure to check before upgrading. A bit expensive (but IMHO well worth the money)
Other Thoughts: This is a big step forward from EVA8000.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good cost per TB, low power consumption and noise
Cons: Does not work :-) Mine was DOA.
Other Thoughts: WD Caviar Green series may have compatibility issues with a number of appliances like NAS and media players like Netgear EVA9000. They behave differently than what these devices expect of a normal hard drive, possibly due to their aggressive power savings strategies or other tweaks. So be sure to check supported hardware lists if buying for that purpose.READ FULL REVIEW
