Reallt great entry level NAS
This is a really great entry level NAS for anyone who wants to have a NAS but doesn’t want to deal with all the admin that comes with a lot of NAS systems.Out of the box, this device just works - I wouldn’t say it’s easy enough for your mom to use, but if you know what an ip address is you can probably figure this thing out. It automatically creates web access + smb access, and sets up a secure username and password for you that is shared across both places.You can also choose to encrypt the disk when you first set it up, if you are worried about the device itself getting stolen with sensitive data.In a recent update they have unlocked the ability to use this as a homeassistant server and a plex server. I have set up the plex side of that, and it works perfectly- can handle multiple direct play streams to my Apple TV, iPad, and computer at the same time. Not a huge surprise, since the hardware in here is more powerful that synologys, wd, qnaps, etc. that are twice the price.I don’t personally use this for photo backup, but the app makes it easy enough to set that up.All in all, if you want an easy to maintain NAS that that’s relatively affordable - and you don’t need many TBs of redundant data (i.e. if the built in 512gb + an external drive is enough for you) then this is hard to beat.
Good and quick response.
I could transfer all videos and photos easily. I added 1 Tb Ssd with my movies and response is good . It is easy to store all movies / videos and connect to TV using HDMI out . Good value for money
Using as a small SSD NAS for Time Machine
Bought this to use as a small form factor single drive SSD NAS for Time Machine for my 256GB Macbook. I don't use the mobile or desktop apps although I had to install the iOS app for the initial setup and account creation. Afterwards it is managed using a web browser. I don't use any of its other features only for Time Machine.Also I didn't have to do anything to get Time Machine working. After plugging into my router, creating an account with the iOS app, and it updating itself firmware. A Time Machine drive just showed up on my network and I started using it. Very happy with the hardware and software of this product and the ease of use in setting up for Time Machine. It is also fast and the web interface looks good.
Easy personal cloud server
Easy to use server for personal files without using a cloud. Only complaints I have is there’s no search function on the app when scrolling thru media files. I’ll have to do a little research and see, but all in all it’s a great product!
Great cloud backup solution
When it comes to cloud based storage I love that this product has its own encrypted and secure storage app. I take lots of photos as a content creator and this has been great for saving space on my phone. The app is straightforward to use and I like the sharing options for sharing photos with my family and friends. This product makes me feel secure about the privacy of my backed up photos and I highly recommend this to anyone who frequently runs out of space on their smartphone.
