Nice price,Considering getting one

How does this work... Or compare to other NAS drives such as dlink/wd

I want one to expand memory and content to other rooms in te house
but never seen one with a disc drive and have no idea how they work

tbh this is hot

Amazing price, but considering how much I use my NAS, I don't think I'd ever move away from Synology.

I'm sure last time this was posted someone mentioned the DVD writer can not be used like an external USB one.

so what use is the DVD Rewriter then? surely you can burn DVDs remotely?

you can burn the files stored on the nas itself to DVD/CD using the web interface

DVD drive can't be used to stream/share across the network

Can you stream wirelessly full hd movies to your TV or laptop using this?

This seems really interesting!

I need to back up my Ipod and was thinking of just getting a standard external hard drive. However, am I right in thinking this would let me back up my Ipod as well as stream the library to my other devices and let me burn the contents of the library to disc? Would it be difficult to copy and transfer the contents of my Ipod onto this?

Any advice is much appreciated

All round versatile unit. Seem to remember seeing this one time at £150.

Can someone please, in layman"s terms, describe what this does and what else I need to stream to other hardware (TV, MacBook Pro, iPad etc!).
Seems really cheap even just for a 1TB external drive but if this is something that I can't live without, please let me know!!! (I'm not terribly computer-literate!!!).
Thanks In advance guys,
Robin

From Amazon Review:

I received this product today and it is a very nice looking thing however its functionality is not great. The installation of the device to the network is simple as is the initial install of the software. Once you have installed the software it goes through setting up the device so that it can be connected via the internet. There is a set up wizard and it is supposed to connect directly to your router which you must select through a drop down menu. If your router is not listed you have to manually set up port forwarding; if you know how to do this fine, but for the regular user it may be quite difficult. Once everything is set up and working I realised that the DVD drive cannot be shared properly over the network.
As in you cannot see it over your network as a device. The description given by Amazon is misleading, you cannot access data directly from the DVD drive. They have also removed the functionality to connect the device via USB so it can be used as an external DVD drive as available with the N1T1. This pretty much makes the DVD drive useless. (Its only function is to back up what is already present on the NAS drive)

amazon.co.uk/pro…ing

Can anyone give a layman's description of this device - pros and cons?

This is a little box which has a thing called a hard drive which holds your music and videos etc, The little box also has a dvd burner which does not burn as it might suggest it allows you to create dvd's

I would be more interested in ripping the DVD out, putting another hard drive.

I have this device and have to say am very impressed for the price. I bought this NAS originally as I was looking for a 1TB External HDD for backups. Saw this and thought I'd take a plunge (not that it's that much more expensive than a 1TB HDD) The functionality is very good 'for my needs'. I have it ethernet'd into my router (BT Home HUB 3) Gigabit Ethernet. Then I've added a WDTV Live ethernet'd again to same router. The WDTV is HDMI'd into my 1080p Viera. So effectively the WDTV is streaming from the NAS Via my Homehub. It' plays all my files perfectly, and somehow my music has never sounded so good either. I'm very impressed with the kit all-round. The cost of this plus £70 for he WDTV have given me a media player that I can't stop looking for excuses to use! The NAS alone allows torrents to be downloaded to directly (great if your downloading overnight and want to switch your computer off). The iTunes server allows to you to play your iTunes library on other network connected machines. And being DLNA compliant you can stream files direct to other devices such as my Viera, but the viera has issues with quite a few codecs, which is why I got the WDTV.

Hope that helps

Thanks, that's the type of help I was after

Ordered one

Does the DVD slot enable copying CD's and DVD's to the device HDD?

Even though reviews suggest it's temperamental and has a few flaws, the price makes it tempting for a basic user like me (streaming to htpc/media player, accessing files from multiple computers). I was saving for a synology because of its software but even the 1-bay ds112j would cost at least double this LG NAS

any thoughts from people who own either a synology or this LG?

Ordered, not sure I understand all of its capabilities but will hopefully learn,
2% quidco

Hot price, cheers op

could anyone confirm if this is will stream to a PS3?

Watch out with DLNA - theory seems better than the practice, every device I've had that claims to support it has had shocking interface and shonky integration.

Any thoughts on how this would go with Apple TV? I've found it better than DLNA based alternatives but you do need to leave the pc on or subscribe to their cloud service. Would the ITunes server on here provide an always-on home-based alternative for AppleTV? I'm only really interested in it as an audio solution.

Can you rip straight from CDs to iTunes using the built in drive on this without booting up a PC?
