My only concern (as with all devices which can be accessed from the `net) would be security. Is there a firmware update function to address any issues that might come up?
The specifications list 1TB internal and 1TB external (through USB/eSATA) as the max HD size so it appears there is a limit there at the 1TB mark.
Yes, there is built in firmware update. Very easy and simple through the web based interface. You can even start from a newer firmware when doing the quick setup wizard for the first time. It provides the ability to point to whichever firmware you want, the current that it ships with is the default.
My System Specs
Intel i5 660 - Clarkbar Power
4 x 4GB GSkill & OCZ mixing and matching
X800 GTO old school passive power
Who cares about anything else, I have a 10GB RAM drive.
Win 7 x64
