Very inexpensive and easy to setup however out of the box performance was horrible. I upgraded to the latest Argosy firmware and performance improved on the dowlnload side but the upload was still very slow. I then upgraded the firmware to the latest Tritton version and performance was still the same. I then read about problem using Netscape and updating firmware. After reflashing the firmware using Internet Explorer and power cycling the device the performace improved Dramaticaly! Speeds are now reasonable on both upload/download. Speeds are ~30000Kb/s, faster if cached up and I'm using an old 20gig Maxtor drive. I haven't had any of the problems others have listed. The downside is the 4gig per file max transfer. This creates a problem when copying or creating a backup file in a lot of cases.
