Pros: + Fast shipping by Newegg (as usual) - Thank you!
+ Easy drive install - the unit comes with four trays which you slide the drives into and secure with 4 screws and then the trays simply slide in and the SATA and power connectors mate to the back-plane.
+ Easy software setup - put in the CD and follow the directions
+ Logical web management interface (haven't had to look at the manual yet)
Cons: + only one issue so far and it was minor. one of the first steps in the software setup is to select the .PAT file image from the CD to be loaded based on NAS model and it took a few tried for the browse file selection to take. I would select and when I clicked Next it would clear the field and I would have to start over. Once it took, I was off to the races.
Other Thoughts: I am setting it up with 4 1TB (WD Caviar Blue WD10EALS) and the initial volume creating with bad sector test will take like 5-6 hours (Status:Creating (Checking parity consistency. 45.69%) after 3hr 39min). So don't plan on loading it with data right away, unless you skip the bad sector test (not recommended). Once I have it in production, I will write more. So far, so good.READ FULL REVIEW
