Shuttle KD20 Network Storage

4 out of 5 eggs Great for home/small office 10/13/2013

This review is from: Shuttle KD20 Network Storage

Pros: Price! Ease of setup. Aesthetics. Noise footprint (none, essentially). Network performance relative to price. Convenient buttons and ports, well thought out. Drives are easily accessible. Web interface works well, and remote access is a snap, after setting it up (also easy).

Cons: Software package could use a few improvements, like, a bar graph or readout depicting estimated percent completed a/o time left while running a backup of the NAS. I have one running right now; about 60GB of data to copy, it's been running for about an hour to an external 2.5" drive via USB 2.0 port. No idea when it's going to be done. A temp sensor would be great too.

Other Thoughts: After reading some users' complaints about heat issues, I was a bit leery about the purchase. But, after a promo code, the price was just too good to pass on. I'm happy so far. You'll also find, if you go hunting, some reviews that show the unit's file transfer performance isn't stellar. May be true, but since I'm upgrading from an old 10/100 NAS, it sure seems fast to me! The one in-depth review I read concluded the unit's file transfer speeds (especially via USB ports) is probably limited by the slightly anemic dual-core ARM processor. None of these things are of particular importance to me. In fact, since I'm running 2 non-identical drives in a JBOD setup, the performance numbers compared to other NAS solutions are decent. If you are looking for a blazing-fast NAS running RAID-0, this one's probably not for you. But if you are looking for totally acceptable speeds at a reasonable price (under $90 with promo code, in my case), you should be happy. BTW, the heat issues some users mentioned haven't happened in my case. I did run the most-recent firmware immediately, available off Shuttle's website.
