Pros: This thing is great. I used it to backup all my photos and home videos as well as storing my dvd collection. Setup was easy. Your part in the setup takes no time at all but it does take a very long time to run the consistency check. I used 2 4TB hard drives and to complete the consistency check actually took about two days. However, it runs in the background and I was able to still do whatever I wanted on it in the meantime. It just slows things down a bit until it finishes, but it wasn't really a big deal. The amount of space I have created now is really unbelievable. I have about 30k photos and about 300GB of home video stored on it. Plus I've started on my DVD collection- 100 DVDs so far (converting to mp4 to be able to stream with my Hopper) and I have only used about 12.5% of the storage space available using a RAID 1 setup. At this rate, I will never fill this thing up. If I do, I can always expand with an add on unit or just attach an external hard drive. There are tons of useful apps that allow me to access all content anywhere, anytime. I couldn't be more happy.
