This is a rather quirky product. I have to say at first I wanted my money back and was so pissed and frustrated at the damn thing (this is why I say it is not for the feint of heart). Eventually after a lot of playing around with the NAS settings, changing settings on my router, and general tinkering around with it I got it to work the way I'd like. The NAS is a very good yet very simple device so it does take a bit of technical knowledge/tools to get this thing working right. The setup is a simple plug-in to a USB port from your external hard drive and a jack into one of your router's ethernet ports. Of course it also needs power but other than that make sure your external hard drive is on and you're in business.

The main features of the NAS include:

1) Media Server that will sync pictures, music, and videos to things like X-Box's, PS3's, Media center PC's, etc.
2) BitTorrent to download all of those media files or other digital content.
3) SMB general file sharing service.
4) FTP file sharing for web based file access.
5) It is dirt cheap compared to most NAS devices which cost upwards of $150 to $200, which means you have to accept the quirks (yes, quirkiness is a feature).

The system is not a flawless one so like I said earlier you really should know a thing or two about computers to use this. Below are a list of things I did to ensure this device will work as well as any "quirks" I ran into:

1) Use at least a 100Mbps router but preferably a 1Gbps router like a Wireless N (a switch or wired router is fine too). Do not use a hub. They are dumb devices and will usually mess up video quality.
2) Enable QoS (quality of service), it is your friend.

I had no problems with this guy. It installed like a champ, not that there's a lot to install, you just plug it into your switch and your USB device (USB drive or printer) and off you go. Running the supplied discovery program allowed me to locate it on the network immediately and once set up in the network it was available via Windows "network neighborhood".

Administration and set up was easy done via a browser interface.

For attaching a USB drive requires that any attached storage device be formatted as a FAT partition and the device includes it's own partitioning software. It does allow large files (I loaded several movies well in excess of 4Gb with no problem) but it does mean that anything you have on the drive will be wiped out so no "cheating" by adding the files via a direct USB connection to your computer.

I didn't try the ftp connection but the torrent client was a nice surprise; it is independent of your computer so you can set up a slow torrent download and not have to keep your computer running for those marathon 2 day downloads.

And certainly a lot cheaper than a standalone NAS!

I had been looking for a NAS so that I could store data on my home network in a central repository. Not only did I want to free up hard drive space on the computers themselves, but also have a secondary site for backups of important data. The Addonics USB to NAS adapter proved to be the most versatile of all of the different options I looked at. In addition, it also doubles as a print server for USB printers and an FTP server. Setup was very easy. Also, because this NAS is very small, it can be tucked out of the way. One feature I really like is the ability to set a sleep mode for the atached hard drive. Not only does this save power, but helps keep the hard drive from overheating. I really like this product.

The hard drive format is only FAT32, so if you plan on using an external hard drive with movies on it, then you are in for a shocker. All my movies are fixed 6gb or larger and will not work on the FAT32 format at all, in fact, I get an error that the drive is NOT large enough to hold the file. Do NOT buy this if you are wanting to use it as a true SAMBA movie media shared drive

The product description did not describe that it wouldn't work with ntfs storage, what a waste of money!!! I wish there were better descriptions provided by the manufacturer or amazon had some minimum standards.
