not for Mac; not great for Vista either 1/6/2008 6:11:35 PM

Pros: inexpensive, might have worked better with windows XP than VISTA/Mac OSX.

Seems (!) like a good value for money.

Cons: It is advertised as cross platform network drive, yet it is almost impossible to set up with Mac OSX (although could be set up with Windows, and than used with Macs). Initial setup with Vista is not easy and prone to mischief of the drive which at times is not easily visible on the network even after proper setup). Finally, it seems that the company did not upgrade its software/drivers/firmware to match new releases of windows and offers nothing adequate for Mac OSX (including absence of downloadable stuff for Mac from its website)
Lastly even when it finally works properly, this drive is prone to random difficulties, primarily seen as intermittent invisibility from network. It is also VEEERRY SLOOOOWWW.
While I know a bit above everage about computers/networks, I asked a computer pro (who has his own computer business) to set this up for me. This guy was super frustrated and labelled this as a cheap product - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR (and in this case you get even less)

Overall Review: Bottom line -avoid this unless the company makes some significant improvements in product support and downloadable drivers/firmware. Needs megabit connection.
In particular if you want to use this with Mac OSX you should not get close to this drive.

As Advertised 12/21/2007 1:48:23 PM

Pros: Easy to set up, works across my 3 WinXP (Home/Pro) PCs, printer sharing is great.

Cons: Nothing related to the device as configured.

Overall Review: Could use a hardware update: USB2.0, Gigabit LAN, and FTP support would make this the bomb.

Setup Pretty much a Snap 10/2/2007 12:48:33 PM

Pros: Easy to set up, low cost, small foot print, huge storage, two USB ports to boot! Some people say the drive case gets warm, but mine doesn't after running it for hours and hours.

Cons: Only having a 10/100 ethernet connect does limit its throughput if you're pushing huge files to the device. A gigabit ethernet connection would solve that limitation.

Overall Review: Overall the drive was easy to setup. The one caveat to that was that when I tried to name the drive something other than SimpleShare during the setup wizard, I got the dreaded "53" error. Once I just accepted the default name, setup was easy and seamless. Overall, I like the device, transfer speed to the device is very good for the documents I transfer to it (i.e. Wordprocessing, Spreadsheet, digital pictures and Ghost images). You can't beat this drive for convenience, ease of setup, drive size and price.

Very Useful 9/30/2007 9:54:43 AM

Pros: Very easy to setup.. Huge amount of space for a low price.

Cons: Never could get the print server function to work. Tried and tried but no go..

Overall Review: No big deal but for some reason I can't access the drive the same way from home as I can away. It has something to do with my router. No problem it's just I have to have two IP's (website addresses) in order to access it.

Slow Slow Slow 9/24/2007 3:56:27 PM

Pros: Easy setup, worked right out of box, no issues.

Cons: I did not realize I was getting a NAS floppy. This is so slow it is sad. Much better off with a USB conected drive or firewire.

Overall Review: Turtle logo would be cool.
