Good value for money. After reading some reviews initially, I was surprised by how easy the setup was. The TOS operating system is intuitive and has useful features and applications. One thing to note is that you will most likely need to upgrade the RAM (2GB onboard - and one expansion slot), especially if you want to use it as a media server (i.e. use PLEX). Online research on the max RAM upgrade for this unit is required. So add the cost of the hdd's and additional RAM when you are budgeting for your NAS solution.
