Once you get it set up and working, it's absolutely worth the price.

Even if you buy an external enclosure, it should cost somewhere around that price.

It does not pretend to be nas and those people who criticize it for not being nas simply didn't read netgear's specifications.

Negative Review

Two major differences about the sc101: any computer that wants to see the drive, needs to run netgear's software on it!

    I see a lot of negative reviews here for this device so i feel compelled to share my experiences with it to even things out a bit.

    You plug it in, hook it up to your router (which has to have dhcp installed) and then just install the access program-- that's it.

    Netgear has packed a nice array of extra features into this device included spanned storage (combining drives or even multiple sc101's to make larger 'virtual' drives) as well as raid-like 'mirroring', to safeguard against drive failure.

    I have only two complaints about this device.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The first is that it uses a proprietary file structure (not ntfs or fat32 like you'd expect) which is a bit annoying.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The other is that you cannot configure the device without at least one hard drive installed in it.

    Other than that, it seems to me that most of the product reviews for this device were quite complimentary when conducted by experienced computer users.
