Pros: This is a great little PC for it's size. It's fast, quite and the added VESA Mount is a big plus. Easy hardware install and has room to grow if needed.
Works great with Windows 7, 8.1 and Ubuntu 13.04
Cons: The only Con I found has been the Wifi adaptor. Realtek usually is pretty good but this one is just pathetic. I had the unit sitting 6in from AP and could watch the signal just go up and down. I tested it in WIndows 7, 8.1 and Ubuntu 13.04 and all gave the same results no matter what driver I used.
Other Thoughts: Overall it is a great product even with the Wifi issues which is easily fixed by replacing the Wifi adaptor. I went with the Intel 7260HMW and now the WiFi is rock solid and I also now have WiDi to boot. (Below is a direct link).
Pros: Cool drives even under load, quiet operation. Speed is better than expected.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Worked great in my Synology DS213 NAS in RAID 1 with 1.82TB usable space. Dumped 900GB on them first day and they took it like a champ.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Synology DS213 Diskless System DiskStation - Simple Set-Up, Easy Efficiency
Pros: A great, powerful 2 disk NAS and more. The setup was simple and absolutely painless. The NAS dashboard is par none one of the best I have seen and is snappy even with high CPU use.
Pushed 900GB to the NAS and was able to maintain 50MB/s almost the whole time. Not a world speed record, but by no means is it lacking either for home use.
Attaching USB Ext Drives to the NAS's additional USB ports for extra storage was painless as well. The NAS just found the drives and all was needed was to add a share to them to start using.
Cons: Attached USB Ext drives performance was lower than expected when coping to and from. (Around 15-19MB/s)
ACL share rights is not 100% configurable unless attached to an Active Directory Domain.
Other Thoughts: I am use to working with Enterprise level NAS and SAN's and have to say, I am impressed with what this little guy can do for the price.
I really can't suggest using this model in a business environment of more than 5 users but for home. You couldn't really ask for more for the price.
