Did not work properly from the initial startup.

It's a good benefit to know the IP address so if you ever have network problems, you can always find the DHCP assigned address.

Tried connecting my WD 2TB Book external drive the front USB 3.0, didn't detect it.

Having looked a number of NAS units, I came across a real bargain on a Lenovo ix4-300d. After reading the various reviews here and other forums it looked like those folks who couldn’t follow basic directions were having the real problems with these units. Some will take offense to my analysis, but my hands on experience provided all the proof needed for this hypothesis.
Along with this NAS I purchased 4 new WD Red 2 TB Drives making my total investment well below $600 for the total package. Like many here I first tried to just install the drives and flip on the unit…..nothing.
After consulting Lenovo’s Support Area, in particular this webpage: [...] ,I was able to use the "diskpart" to clean the drives (yes, even new ones). I understand this is standard best practice. It’s quite an easy and quick process.
When installing the drives note the label above the drive cage that instructs the user to firmly insert the drives into place….It means it!! Make sure the drives seat firmly into place. Once in place, expect it to rebuild the raid for the first 24 hours or so depending on drive size. This is to be expected with any type of SAN or raid system.
Once it’s up and running the front LCD furnishes the IP address of the Console. The unit has a feature packed compliment of programing and every protocol I can think of. It authenticates to your Domain controller, (via AD) or you can set permissions within the device itself via the web console for a general “Workgroup
Additional features include:
UPS Backup Support, Full Email Alerts, every protocol you can think of (SMB, iSCSI, NFS, Apple, SFTP, etc. , Facebook and Instagram integration. Copy/rsync jobs, NFS & SAMBA server, shared folders, etc.

This was a little difficult to set up. I had to use Linux to overwrite my disks partition tables. This in effect "reformat's the disk" even though I didn't bother overwriting all the old data. You can do this with a Linux live CD if you don't have it installed on your computer. This was a great deal for the less than 2 bill's that I paid. I would give it a 6 in value if I could. Speed is about double my other NAS with 3 3TB drives installed. On my consumer grade gigabit router to/from a single SSD drive write speed to the NAS is about 60MB/s and read is at least 70MB/s possibly higher (don't have much space on that SSD to test with). It isn't the most feature rich OS but seeing as I was using a previous version of the EMC software on my old NAS it was a step up. It is smaller than I thought which is good. I wish I could turn off the blue lcd on the front instead of just turning it down. Build quality seems good but I have only owned it for a month or so and its hard to tell.

This thing is great! Lots of features...every protocol you can think of (SMB, iSCSI, NFS, Apple, SFTP, etc.). It has two network ports that you can bond together and seems to even support VLAN tagging. It supports jumbo frames. Great low cost unit for virtualization. It doesn't replace a real SAN, but it does a really good job for the price.

I recommend this unit over the ix2 units. I've had the ix2 units fail hard drives, this one is much more solid.

Initial review: Just put in hard drives (I'm using 4 X 4TB Red WD), turn on and follow directions. It did take about 18 hours to build the Raid, but that was to be expected. Although there is a desktop app (LenovoEMC Storage Manager), its not really needed if you use your web browser and point to the NAS IP. The USB ports and quick copy function are really useful. Even better is the ability to gain root access using SSH...just search the web for directions. Some people have had luck installing other applications, but I haven't tried (yet). I did use the built-in bit torrent app (Transmission)...not the most intuitive, but it worked. Will report back periodically and I discover more and see how it performs over time.

I have had the ix4-300d for over a week now, but it was bit pain to get it setup. The installation document that comes with doesn't have enough information on how to setup the hard drive over 2TB. After some googling, I was able to do the clean step to recognize 3TB WD Red NAS drive. Also, after it recognized it, it only saw 20GB space on the drive. Had to do a factory reset to actually get the correct space recognized by the drive.

Haven't played around with it much, but will update the review in a month or so. For now, taken out a star for initial setup.

--Update--
I changed a setting on the NAS which required a reboot. After the reboot, I kept getting the message about the hard drive needs to be Authorized. I kept of click Yes and the pop-up kept on coming back. After several retries, it Authorized the drive. Then, I look at the storage and RAID setting was set to None. I wanted to setup as RAID 1, but the drop down didn't have the option. Tried connecting my WD 2TB Book external drive the front USB 3.0, didn't detect it. It works fine with my other computers.

I am done with IX4-300D. Its going back. Spent hours and hours after it, still didn't get it fully setup. The software needs to be fully tested before it is made GA.
