Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow setup & medium copy to but 60Mps Back down I set this up with three 3Tb drives in a Raid 5 config - the raid build took just under two days. That aside copy to is roughly 20-22 Mps but copy down is consistant at 58 - 62 Mps which is plenty fast enough and ISO mount works fine over HDMI for movies For the money this is a good piece of kit - just be patient on the raid build

Music playback

Does this unit play back MP3 files - its not clear in the specs. For me this is critical.
Asked by: TheAlien
Hello, The specification for this item does not state direct support for MP3 files, however it does state that if using the device as an iTunes server MP3 w/ ID3 tags are supported file types. Regards,
