Pros: Got here fast. Easy DD-WRT upgrade. 16MB of memory.
Cons: Had to upgrade the router to DD-WRT? Only one N antenna.
Overall Review: I was running an old linksys with 8mb so this thing flys in comparison. As long as you are willing to upgrade the router to dd-wrt this thing is an awesome solution.
This device ROCKS!
Pros: Samba server. Ftp server. HOLDS FILES ABOVE 4GIG. You can store 4gig+ files on here(DVD isos), you do need to format the drive through the webUI and it is not NTFS. I am currently using this device to host ISOs on my network and play them through xbox media center. Use an FTP client on your pc/mac and upload the iso to the server and you are set.
Cons: Short led wires, need to be unplugged to install the HD. No gigabit connection. A 2 bay version with raid ability would be perfect. I am nit picking here. This is an excellent device for the cost. Data redundancy/mirroring would be nice, but not a deal breaker at this price point.
Overall Review: I bought 2 retail and 1 white box. I will be buying 2 more soon. Until they make a gigabit, 2drive, mirroring version this is as good as it gets.
