  • Fantastic for large storage
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Nitro - June 22, 2020

    I bought this without hard drives only because none of the models with drives were in stock. Made a separate purchase of two 4TB Western Digital Red drives and put them in Raid 1. I wanted redundancy for my purposes. Once the drive is online, it just works. Lots of options and plenty powerful enough for storage. Also has options to runs apps. Plex is a nice option, but this unit can't transcode a lot of formats so you may run into limitations there. I don't use the cloud services and was really interested in access outside my home. Works great for access from a MAC or windows. TimeMachine backup works great as well.

  • Basic installation is easy
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ssdna - June 18, 2020

    I had the little white 2TB WD MyCloud previous to purchasing this one. I should have never even bothered with it! The EX2 is quite an impressive unit. Boot up time is around 1 minute, UI is very similar to the WD MyCloud but incredibly faster and much more intuitive. I haven’t played around with too many of the features (there are many!) but I can already tell this is a great little NAS. Can’t beat the price for a 2-bay, but DO BUY PROPER NAS DRIVES! Failure rate of non-NAS drives in NAS enclosures are quite high. Save yourself the headache and potential data loss.

  • Great Entry Level NAS
    Reviewed by ReezyMedia Services - September 26, 2021

    Great upgrade from using a 2014 Mac mini as a NAS. Tip: ensure to configure as much of the share folders and users access settings BEFORE running/setting up NAS applications. When NAS applications are in heavy use or the applications are causing large file transfers, using the web portal to configure other settings or check on system resources is very very slow and in some cases unusable. I believe an average user will not run into these issues as long as they are not trying to configure settings whilst NAS is busy running background tasks/applications.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
