    Bought this device to backup 1 desktop and 2 laptops. Installation was a breeze on all machines, and transfer is good over wireless and wired networks, plus I have access to documents from all machines at a central location. After a period of innactivity the device spins down to power save mode, a nice touch which means you can leave the device on at all times, and it wakes up as required. For my purposes this has been an excellent buy, and well worth the money. I understand other people have had configuration issues and problems with this device, but none of this has affected my use of the device, and I'm more than pleased. If you need an inexpensive and simple backup solution this should work well.

    I bought the Freecom Classic as it was advertised as compatible with mixed networks of Windows and Mac.

    The former was set up easily but when it came to the Mac my problems started. Firstly there is no driver for the Mac and you have to go to their website and download it. When the driver failed I found that the whole disc is not formatted for Mac use and has to be reformatted into Fat32. There is no program on their site to reformat the disc and they suggest that you search the internet for a suitable free program. I found one but it is at Bios level which is not for the faint hearted. All in all I would rate it very lowly and is certainly not plug and play.

    Don't know what the problem was for the other reviewer here but it works fine on XP MCE for me. I installed the NDAS utility and when I ran it, all I had to do was enter the device code which is on a sticker on the underside of the unit. The setup actually works like a charm as I have two of these drives hidden away upstairs with the wireless router and the MCE pc in my living room runs movies etc off them without any hitches.

    Although this works fine on my XP desktop, I cannot use the device on an XP-Mediacentre machine. I contacted freecom support - they replied with ...

    This is a known NDAS/Microsoft issue, please see:[...]

    So for me, I can't use this drive (without a lot of fuss). Had to send it back and get a proper NAS drive instead.

    easy to install, tremendously fast transfers of course. but it only works with one LAN and i have two on my network. this was not apparent until i had the drive. it can see the first LAN, appears to work on that basis. but cannot share on network for other PCs. another problem is it conflicts with encryption software that create artificial disks. hence i have to uninstall the software after each use. but atleast its much faster to backup than USB2
