Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and faster than expected I use this as a second archive – so it has to back 6GB up on a regular basis. Delighted with it's performance and speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 * 8/B Nas (or NSA as Zyxel would have it) Its early to say how reliable these units are. They are a decent price however and after purchasing 1 drive I soon bought another. Delivery was next day and with a reliable courier. After fitting the first drive in the Zyxel NSA325-v2 I was pleased to see the formatting options appear and I formatted the drive as a single drive in slot A. This is not an industrial application I am a home hobbyist but work on a lot of cine conversions and photographic projects. Anyhow the NAS is routed through 2 devices and transfer speed was quick. Not as fast as a USB3 direct connection but fast enough to be viable. Pleased with this I again purchased another drive which sat in the NAS and introduced itself readily and formatted easily. So I now have 16TB of none raid storage and perhaps when funds allow I will purchase 2 more and at last have the security of RAID. Thanks Scan for the excellent service. I will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good company, good disc. Warranty elapses in Jan 2019 - good. The disc was properly packed and delivered on time. The disc is working well. When I bought the disc Scan were the cheapest. Scan also offer next day, timed delivery for £5.48. I would buy from Scan again and I will (already have) recommend Scan to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic value for Archival or WORM usage I purchased 4 of these drives to run in my Plex server, pooled with Stablebit Drivepool and dual-parity protection via SnapRAID - these drives work brilliantly. Fantastic value per TB, but at the cost of write performance; especially when writing large amounts of data (some people have claimed hitting around 50GB transfers will result in very slow write speeds of around 2MB/s; while my own experience seemed to be just over 100GB before it crawled. Please though; do not purchase these drives expecting to use them as a primary HDD for your OS install, Steam library etc. These are named 'Archive' drives for a reason. So if you're wanting to use them for cold storage, occasional backups, or a permanent media library; these should fit the bill nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity, attractive price This is drive has large capacity and it was the main reason for buy it. It was attractively priced at the time at 180GBP compared to WD choices. Seagate disks I used before have always been reliable. It is worth noting that this is not the fastest drive out there. I use it for archiving and backup purposes mostly. If you need a drive for video editing you may wish to get a SSD disk instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very big drive Big drive for archive work, Never put all your eggs in one basket !!. So far, so good, filled it and put it to one side ( NAS Backup ) Time will tell how good they are.
