ZyXEL NSA325 NAS servers (2-Bay, SATA II, 1x RJ-45, USB 3.0) (Accessories)

Customer Review

I got myself the NSA325 to complement my beloved Netgear Stora Netgear Stora NAS MS2110-100PES system with 1x1TB hard drives (2-Bay, SATA, USB, Ethernet, Raid) black.

In Stora could be only one public and each user to set up a private network share. In addition, it was limited to three users. The NSA325 is there much more flexible. You can assign each release, whether it is available with or without authentication and you can work with both User and group permissions with.

Some getting used to is the setting up of the shares. It only creates the release, and then copies the files to the appropriate approvals. If you, like me, the NSA used as a backup server for local files, and individual subdirectories still want to share them with the public, which is the local directory structure is not always compatible ... Say you have to back up the private local subdirectories in a private share and the public in a public share. Not nice. But there is a solution! The NSA is accessible for the administrator also telnet !!! And with a few basic skills Linux can now create symbolic links from a private share into a public share. Thus, I can my local directory structure as it is secure in the private share in the NSA325, whilst still allowing the latest holiday snaps via DLNA streaming on our TV.

Otherwise, the box is a jack of all trades. Here is a list of possible functions:
- Connect NAS, Windows just as a network drive
- DLNA server (with me access from the Sony Bravia TV from)
- ITunes Server
- Web Server
- Download Server
- FTP Server
- Backup scheduler (schedule backup of the files on the NSA to a locally attached external USB drive, for example, as an incremental backup)
- Wake on LAN
- Auto Power On After Power Failure

Why only "almost" perfect? The daylight saving time detection is not working. Moreover, it happened to me that after the restart suddenly the timezone to UTC was postponed. This is problematic when you on and off the device timed leaves and has also set up a scheduled backup. The time zone issue I have not since I asked the DST recognition on manually. However, the automatic switch-off is still not reliable. Since the NSA all night running useless to himself, though it should turn off every evening at 23:00 clock. At least the automatic switching has not always worked.

Despite these weaknesses, there is the full five points, because of the many features and especially because of the Rootzugangs via Telnet.
