To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
In short - configure it as a JBOD and it's adequate. Don't expect support.
I attempted to configure the RAID & it can't seem to include more than one HDD in the volume. The web app is clunky & not usable on mobile. Support is snippy saying the screen shots I sent them aren't a problem. If I don't understand what 'add no add part' means, it's a problem.
Pros: - I was pleasantly surprised at the build quality, build specs, and feature set of this device, especially at this price point. - The interface is clean and easy to use, though I've found the whole thing a bit buggy, and I worry about its data security.
Cons: - Several parts of the UI show translation issues where whole words were not translated into English. This isn't a huge deal for me, but it's certainly sloppy. - The mobile app is not production ready. It's missing very basic features and looks awful. - Some of the built in applications simply don't work. For example, I tried connecting the device to an existing OpenVPN. That's supported under the Network tab. Note, I'm not trying to host a VPN, but connect to one. It will not connect to my VPN (despite plenty of other objects happily doing so) and the interface to connect doesn't even make sense as the combination of inputs is wrong. - Getting into the box via SSH shows many areas which are configured drastically wrong. Several folders have 777 permissions which means literally anyone with access can gain access to files regardless of how they're configured via the other interfaces. - When attempting to open a support ticket, they wanted remote access to my desktop and the NAS device as a first step. This is absolutely ridiculous and I would not give someone else this level of access to my infrastructure. Especially not as a first step.
