Shouldn't really list Raid levels with this as it only has one internal disk.
#2
Was hoping it would fit 2 drives, bah! Has DLNA though, which is nice :)

Attach an external hard drive, then you can have a little bit more room, not sure if you could raid but it's additional space :)

If you don't need the DVD-RW then the harddisk only version is £18.50 cheaper here:

These are apparently very good units for the price; unlike others in this price range they have decent transfer speeds (due to good cpu and controller).

CNET Reviews - LG N1T1 NAS with DVD ReWrite Review
Embedded Link

Extracts taken from the CNET Review...

When using the LG as a NAS server, you can connect a printer to this USB port, when using it as an external hard drive/DVD burner, you can use the USB port to connect the device to a computer using the included "A male to A male" USB cable. This is rather unusual; most regular USB devices include a B female port to be used with regular A male to B male USB cable. That said, make sure you keep this included USB cable around as it might be hard to find a replacement.

Unfortunately, the LG's USB port can't be used to host an external storage device, meaning there's no way to add more storage to the device.

Also on the back, there's the power button and a switch that quickly changes the role of the LG N1T1 among a NAS server, an external hard drive, or an external DVD burner. You can do this even when the device is powered on but of course you should only perform this switch when the device is idle.

It's easy to set up the LG N1T1. When the device is used as an external hard drive or DVD burner, just connect it to a computer via the USB connection and turn it on. The computer then recognizes the external hard drive or the external DVD drive automatically and you can use the newly added drive the same as the internal drives included in your computer.

The other reviews you posted links to show a backup to USB option; I think cnet may have missed that in their short review.

It's a pity that when connected to a PC you can't access the NTFS storage and the burner at the same time. The reviews didn't make it clear whether you could burn an audio CD or video DVD from the internal storage in NAS mode.

Yeah the reviews out there aren't very detailed I'm afraid. :(

It says Gigabit ethernet on other sites, so I guess it has decent performance? Price could be lower, but overall it looks quite good.
#10
I know it says itunes support, but can this run my squeezebox without putting pc on? If so, how?
#11
wonder if you could but the dvd version, and and replace the 2 internal drives to be 1tb 2.5's using the raid....
#12
I have the N1A1 version of this - I think it is the same but without the DVD drive.

Haven't had much of a chance to play with it, but my initial thoughts are that the configuration is a lot more basic than the Synology but it is quiet and I am happy enough with the speed. I think LG use Hitachi hard drives and the hard drive cannot be replaced without opening it up.

Support is not great. LG UK have outsourced the support to another company and all they tend to do is just contact LG in Korea for help!
#13
Very good but a NAS with only one drive is not for me.
#14
Will this 'backup' dvd movies onto its hdd?
#16
Good deal, but RAID is essential for me, so still considering the far more expensive option of going with a Synology DS211j with 2x 1TB drives.
#18
silly question, but can this be used as a web server?

Sadly not although it has an embedded server for managing the device.

oh thats a shame :(. thanks for letting me know though :). I need a device which lets me broadcast to the web as I'm a android dev, creating a spotify-like for your own personal music to steam to your mobile.
#22
anyone know if i can boot into a Macbook with a damaged optical drive using this and a Linux disc?
ie, does the drive activate as soon as the laptop does and would the boot loader detect a bootable CD in it?
thanks!
