What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from N2R1D Had it up and running on my network in about 20 minutes. Changing the router settings to enable remote access was more challenging because the UPnP Port Forwarding feature did not work for my router. Very quiet with not a lot of heat output. I have seen some reviews stating this unit has Wi-Fi built in - it does not. The web interface menu is nice and clean. An automatic check to see if it has the newest firmware would be nice. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and would/have recommended this item to friends and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value overall, but room for improvment. Lots of good features, but missing a few things I'd like to have. Linux NFS support for one. This is my biggest beef. Windows file sharing is just plain slow compared to NSF when backing up from my server or Linux workstation. Please, please add NFS support in a future update...... The web server works, but was unable to use it for a simple accounting web site, (Phreebooks) even though SSL and mysql is supported. Lack of cURL support was the major show stopper. Openssl and php ftp support were also lacking but those were not as critical. Not what I bought the NAS for, but would have been a nice bonus had it worked. Perhaps a future firmware update will address this. One issue I did have was, DLNA did not work out of the box, but a firmware update took care of that just fine. I recommend getting the latest from the support site. Performance when accessing the NAS via web portal is Sluggish, not what I'd want in a work environment, but just barely acceptable for home use. A faster CPU would be great. Overall, a good product. Great for home users, but a little lacking in performance and features for business or power users.

Updating The N2R1D

This has still NOT been answered! Please let me know 1) firmware 2) a more reliable UI that can be used - NOTHING WORKS CORRECTLY on several different systems MAC OS from 10.5.8! Updating The N2R1D & new User Interface (UI) Details: Your website is not clear as to updating this model- this link DOES NOT SHOW the N2R1D as being upgradable (it only lists N2A2..) ( http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/nas-firmware-update.jsp ) Is this possible that the new interface will not work with my model, that was just purchased 4 weeks ago? Please clarify. Also I see NO DOWNLOAD link for this new UI - My unit is currently using firmware version 1.0.0_2657 - I am on a 3 different mac's systems starting from 10.5.8 to the newest.

you will have to go to the U.K. website for this product firmware update. My guess is that LG was overstocked on a product that was destined for obsolescence, with no future updates. There is no prospects of a client interface update only the N2 models will have. Working on lion is clunky but the Firmware 2660 helps a little.

How can I set files attributes to read only.

Accessing this product (N2R1D) by windows machines. Would like to know how to set files and/or folders to read only so that only the admin account could make changes. I am at firmware System Firmware Version 1.0.0_2407. Regards, Mike
Asked by: Mike
There are two methods for working with attributes on this unit. You can do so for individual folders or you can do so by groups. In the LG Network Storage Web Menu, find the REGISTERED FOLDER LIST. By clicking on the Folder Name, with the exception of the folder name, all its information can be altered. The other option is to click on a Group Name in the REGISTERED GROUP LIST, and then change the group attributes.

formatting Advanced Format (4k sector) drives in the N2R1 ?

What is the procedure for using advanced format drives in the N2R1? LG documentation states that the device uses Linux Kernel 2.6. To paraphrase a major HD manufacturer, "the Linux kernel has had specific support for the alternate sector sizes and offsets used by..." "... Advanced Format disk drives since version 2.6.31. However, distributions based on Linux 2.6.34, the latest stable version of Linux, will provide the most thorough support. Advanced Format parameters are available in the sysfs file system from this kernel version onwards. Kernel versions older than 2.6.31 will not specifically detect Advanced Format Drives, but with proper alignment the system performance will be maintained. " Is the LG version of the kernel older that 2.6.31 ? How can you perform the alignment, check the alignment?
Asked by: r3
According to the specifications listed on our website, this unit utilizes an embedded Linux Kernel, version 2.6, and supports Linux Redhat9, Ubuntu, and Suse. Unfortunately, we do not have support for the advanced format drive, since the kernel is older. There is currently no ETA for an update to this Kernel.

Asked by: ENZO
We appreciate your interest in this network device. The new User Interface (UI) was developed for some older models, in order to allow them compatibility with new software and new features. If this unit is so new, it may already have the new interface. It would explain why there is no link to any new User Interface.
