As for the product itself.
No surprises with the rack fitment, though it doesn't come with rack mount bolts (crazy as it's a rack mount item).
Drives are easy to install, though they're not screw-less so make sure you have a small posidrive available.
Once up and running the interface is pretty straightforward and easy to navigate around. Shares are easy to set up, as are multiple users.
Notification emails can also be configured to alert on a variety of conditions, really handy when one of the drives failed - not the fault of the unit, rather the low build quality of WD NAS specific hard disks, this is the 2nd replaced in the last 6 months, I have older Seagate drives which have had no issues.
All in all a pretty decent NAS which is suitable for home or small business, and for less than a comparable Synology.
The only thing I didn't like about them is that they force you into using RAID5 instead of RAID6 (they're dumbed down to make them easily configured for even a layman, as you pop in new drives they build a larger RAID5 array without any interaction) you then have to then go manually change the settings and rebuild your array to be RAID6 which is time consuming. But once set up, they work like a charm. I do not use many of the built in options (App packages available for it) but the few I do use work great.
Using one as a NAS file share, and another as a surveillance storage location (to double the 32GB of space for 64 cameras). No complaints for either use, it keeps up with storing the videos and playing back the videos perfectly via LAN.
Here's hoping they both stay alive for 4 or 5 years!
