For what I paid for this I wasn't expecting very much. It is mostly plastic and I just hoped it worked well enough for my needs. Drive instalation is very simple. You take the front cover off (if you are having a hard time you are doing it wrong. It comes off very easily) and slide the drives into place. There is a metal, not plastic, pull tab for each drive for removal. First try at set up nothing happened so I waited for awhile, turned it off and back on. It worked fine after that. Reading is fundamental. You do need one computer to set it up on the network but after that all the computers can access it with out a problem. It has exceeded my expatations. I upload and download from any computer without a problem. The computer you install it from will show it as a drive called share with the unit name and a drive letter on that computer and it will appear as a network drive on all computers. Both drives are viewed as one large drive and anything on the drives when installed will be lost so make sure nothing on them is important. It would be wise to max the drives out by getting two 2 terabyte drives. I couldn't at the time because I wanted to get it up and running as quick as possible so I only have 3 terabytes of storage and if I want to expand I may have to back it up before I increase the storage capacity. You can attach an external usb drive for more storage, it will show up as usb storage in the unit and the unit will not destroy any information on the external drive. You just have to access it through the unit. Removal of a usb device from the storage is done just like on a computer. You tell it to disconnect it and it will tell you when to unplug. The important thing is that it does not do anything with the files on an external drive but it allows you to access them on the network without having to setup sharing on all your computers. The only minor problem is the drive will show a red x sometimes but when you explore it the x goes away and access is no problem. Probably a software glitch that doesn't seem to matter. It runs 24-7 so I will just have to wait and see how durable it is. I haven't used it for backup but it does come with software.
