Top customer reviews
- I'm using Win7 now, but this does not work correctly under Windows 2008 Server. I had multiple drive issues using that operating system (some worked, some didn't). Also, If you are on a Mac, be sure to read other reviews, some people seem to be having trouble.
- I was also having issues with the "drive sync" feature which manages drive power, I disabled this (by pushing the button on the front) and things work better. (This is for a file server, and I don't need sleep mode). I think this "drive sync" feature may be causing many of the issues other people are describing.
- Seems like many people have issues with the eSATA connection. If you do want to use the eSATA, be sure to buy the recommended PCI card to ensure compatibility. I'm having no trouble with USB3, speed are very quick.
- I have it connected to a Windows 7 machine and it's working great. No additional drivers or software required for Win7.
- I have it fully loaded, with 8 HDs, all different brands and sizes. Totaling 18TB. They all are recognized and working well in Win7.
- I get between 30MB/s to 100MB/s on drive to drive transfers. (I think the speed depends on the speed of the drives, some drives consistently get 100MB/s transfer rates)
- The drives appear as all separate drive letters, which was expected, but I was able to create virtual links in one folder. So this way, I can use my Plex media server to point to a single directory, which has subfolders (junction links) to all the separate drives of video files. I recommend "Junction Link Magic" for Win7 (free software, just google it)
- fans are reasonably quiet, considering how many drives are in there.
- Much cheaper than an 8-bay NAS
