5* Ideal for the home user
Reviewed by Gary Clark on 28/12/2013
Got the box this morning, installed two old sata disks I had lying about and booted the cd. Despite initially having a duff drive installed and having to restart the initialise procedure, setup was a breeze. iTunes app installed, the box is now happily serving music to my sonos system while I rip my cd's to iTunes on the PC and automatically add them to the boxes library.
I will install some NAS specific drives in the future, but after reading so many negative reviews about many other boxes but none about this one, I am glad I have taken the plunge and got the 325 v2
5* Brilliant bit of kit
Reviewed by DG on 18/04/2014
Bought this to replace a WD MyBookWorld that (like others report) started dropping out of the network regularly requiring frequent reboots and also slow) - the Zyxel is fast and so far has not dropped the network connection even when in parallel with the WD that does). The control panels are easy to use compared to the archaic and slow WD). Plenty of Media apps for media sharing/downloading/streaming and I like the way it finds photos/music/videos from within whichever folder they may be filed for display in a media browser. Easy initialisation of new disks (2 WD Reds) but it was very slow synching the second RAID1 disk (8hrs)even though no data on it. 2 disk initialisation defaults to RAID1 but can convert after to two separate or one big disk, similarly can migrate a single to RAID1 if 2nd added later. Like the processor/memory feedback and the SMART health/performance tests. Screwing HDDs in trays not a big issue. Plastic is a bit lightweight but great value and above all fast.
4* Impressive for the money.
Reviewed by Paul Moore on 05/06/2014
I'm really quite surprised by this NAS.

It's quick enough to be usable but nothing to write home about. On a 1000Mbps link, I get between 60 & 70MB when transferring single/just a few files. Try to copy an entire directory structure with various file sizes though, and it quickly drops to around 10MB. It's stable though, which is the main thing.

The fan is very quiet, but not silent. When coupled with Western Digital Reds, you can't hear it spin up/down and there's virtually no seek noise either.

The web interface is actually pretty good, the windows apps aren't quite so good. They're pointless in all honesty, you can (and should) manage the device from the web UI only.

Although there's support for jumbo frames up to 9K, I found it to be unstable in anything other than "disabled" mode. Yes, the rest of the network is jumbo frame compliant.

You'll probably need to upgrade the firmware too.

All said and done, it's a damn good bit of kit for the money.
