For a newbie or for an advanced user, this NAS device will satisfy both type of users. Its easy to install, easy to configure and at the same time has advanced features for those who would like to play with. Transfer speed in reality matches specification speed by over 90%. Fair enough.
This is a simple 2 bay NAS without HDD. NAS compatible HDD's would work well, but other simple HDD's will also work. Of the 6 years that I am using a NAS from a different company, after purchasing this, I am truly happy owning a NAS.
