Pros It worked well until the OS failed.
Cons When the OS failed, seemingly I have lost both disks.
The whole reason I bought this was for RAID 1 mirroring.
So what's my option now? If I'm lucky, I send it somewhere to someone who knows how to deal with the proprietary format? I've got 5 years of
Summary I am starting to wonder if I should pursue small claims court to at least cover the cost of sending the disk to someone who specializes in this kinda crap. I'm a developer, an MIT guy, reasonably savvy to tech travails, but I'm feeling like someone who got scammed by a used car salesman. How do you botch RAID 1? geez...
Pros Admirable in terms of its features and function. Provided a good NAS solution while functioning.
Cons Seemingly short MTBF, mine died just out of warranty and I am not alone.
Unit failure leaves you completely dependent on HP. The proprietary file system foils attempts to recover your files. You MUST pay HP.
Summary Steer clear of this product and look carefully before you buy HP.I am in the same boat.
See also HP Laptop Overheating, especially dv9000 series. Very poor service and support.

I will not soon forget the grave disservice of HP and sites like this that gave this a great review. Shameful.
Pros Small footprint, sleek case.
Cons Slow, poor software, Linux OS, confusing to make use of, noisy HDD's, just not a quality product.
Summary HP has been a good product for years, but now is trimming corners and the products are suffering for it. The support isn't what it used to be and the MediaVault points out all the weaknesses in HP. Don't buy HP products. They're unreliable and cheap (not just inexpensive, but poorly conceived and executed).

Pros Easy setup for HTTP and FTP
Cons nothing yet....price
Summary Works as advertised. Very fast. Good FAQ
Pros ease of setup, configuration
Cons Hardware is undersized, insufficent growth capacity.
Summary Running a home network consisting of 5 desktops, 3 laptops with total storage of 4,590GB. Wasted my time with this, cannot attach sufficent storage. Whoever designed this needs to go out into the real world and look at what people are doing. I'm staying with my Linux box.
