Fantastic NAS drive

Pros: inexpensive, easy to setup
"This is a great NAS for the money. I really do wish Costco carried the 6TB version though as I'd gladly buy another one.
Users should be aware that this drive is not as fast as mid/high end NAS solutions like Synology, Qnap and Drobo. In practice the MBL is a little faster than an external USB 2 drive as long as you're connected over gigabit ethernet. Many of the mid/high end NAS drives mentioned above are double that speed, but again you'll only see that over wired gigabit ethernet.
If you connect to it wirelessly through your router it'll probably seem very slow, this isn't the drive's fault, it's that your 11n 300Mbps wireless connection is probably only actually connecting at a fraction of it's maximum speed and that'd the bottleneck not the drive. If you're mostly connecting over wifi it's all the more reason not to spend money on a high end NAS and get something like this instead."
