I've been struggling with this thing for days, comparing its throughput to several other devices (8 disk raid-5 array on the server, eSata drive, raid 1 desktop, laptop with single 7200RPM drive) trying to figure out why it is so unbelievably slow. The first time I tried to just back up the data from my laptop (music, photos, documents, etc. about 108 Gigs worth) it was still running 24 hours later. I brought it to work to test it in comparison to other devices and was able to get the back up down to about 4 hours. The most upload throughput I able to get was 30 MB/sec (via a direct large single file copy). It wasn't limited by source either, I got the same through put from my desktop (Raid-1) or database server with an 8 disk SAS RAID-5 array. However when doing a backup via the S4 software you will only get about 7-8 MB/sec. When trying to backup via Windows Backup or Lenovo's Backup the results were even worse and eventually failed every time.

I thought I could live with the slow backups, as the incremental backups would only update the changes - which would not be that much each week. Nope, it resends ALL the data.

For comparison I just backed up our database server to an external disk on another computer using Windows Server Backup. Data is transmitted from Server A -> via Gb switch -> Server B -> eSata attached single drive (same 2TB Hitachi drive used in the S4). The bottle necks are the write speed of the single disk and Gb network switch. It took less than 1.5 hours to backup 128 Gig of data (23MB/sec). When I copy the onsite backup drive to the offsite backup drive (both using the same 2 TB hitachi drives I'm using in the S4, both connected via eSata ports into the same PCI-Express card), I can copy 195 Gigs of data in 35 minutes (92MB/sec).

It will not find any of my drives. I have attempted to use pairs of matched brands between 1tb and 2tb and it just scrolls down the drives over and over and never finds them. I have reached out to the company, email only support and no one has responded. I am just sending it back and going with a better reviewed device.

GL if you get this, and hope you never need support.

Within 6 months of purchase this machine locked up to where I can't access the Web management page. As another reviewer stated, the manual has a procedure to follow if the NAS locks up. I followed the procedure, but still the same result.

I contacted Patriot Memory Tech support on their web site, and promptly received a reply with a ticket number an login to the support site. That was a month ago! So far I've seen nothing from Tech support.

In short, if you buy this, you are on your own.

This drive has some great features. Easy to setup, very friendly. The only beef that I have is that it is slow. Transferring files to/from this devise takes forever. It's on a gigabit LAN with Cat 6 cables, so it is definitely this device. All my other NAS drives are Buffalo brand and even the older 10 megabit network drives seem to transfer faster.

Pros:
- reliable - I bought this on Oct 2011, never had to power off
- easy to install and configure
- mac and pc friendly
- 1gbps interface

Cons
- even having 1gbps interface, it's slow because of the cache it has
- alert for mac users: it is very limited, no timemachine compatibility
- firmware update to be release takes forever. At the time I bought it was the lion version and support told me the next firmware would be compatible with time machine. Now we are with the new firmware but also now mac os also is new (mountain lion) and still not time machine compatible :-(

Why I'm giving 3 stars:
- We use for backups, so no big deal, it works
- On June 2012 we needed another array so we bought the Synology DS411J. This array stopped to work after 5 months, still waiting for support (by the way I wait over half hour to have a tech support talk with me for synology). So compared to Synology, at least javelin didn't disappointed me that much, at least I still have access to my data in the javelin.

Based on both experience (synology and patriot javelin) I need to continue to look more in the market for something that is reliable and at the same time faster and updated (compatible with mac os time machine).

Pros:
1. Easy to setup very intuitive for IT person using included software. Needed the book only for default password.
2. Small foot print
3. E-Sata port on back for Fast data transfer
4. Lower Power use than a PC running NAS software
5. Price
6. Media streaming (ITunes, Video, Pictures, Documents)
7. User and Group setup with rights
8. Email notification on conditions you chose
9. Quiet
10. Nice read speeds 70-88

Cons:
1. Slow transfers rate of whole directories and pictures in directories compared to Freenas on a PC (8MBs/per on Javelin 30MBs/per on Freenas PC using Dlink Gigabit switch).
2. Drive brackets do feel cheep, so don't tighten the screw to tight it may break
3. There are no special options for turning external disks off safely (USB, E-Sata 10-15 MBs).

I did this to try and conserve power (using E8400, 4 1IB, 4GB ram and CM890 case) reduce the amount of heat in my room it the summer months, and free the E8400 computer to be used somewhere else in the home (My wife has an old P4 3.4GHz). Also reduce the foot print usage in my room compared to using a PC as file server. So far it's working out great with the Javelin S4. But I have had it less than 24 hours. I did a lot of testing Sunday. They call this thing a media server also. If this is going to be labeled as a media server, then it would have been nice to have wireless NIC and a HDMI video support. In all the Javelin S4 is a very nice product for the price compared to others that are out there for the same price with a nice exterior design says my wife. It should fit into everyone home budget for at Fry's price of $299 with $100 mail in Rebate. Even without that it is still better some of the other devices out there at a greater price.
