The is the latest version and worth the slightly higher cost. Very fast and works flawlessly. I have it setup using 4 WD 4TB Red drives in a RAID 5 + hot spare. The apps are great and easy to setup and use. I am a photographer and use this primarily as my image storage device. Love being able to access and upload my images from any device, anywhere in the world. Also, very simple to send a link to securely share an image folder with a client without time consuming effort of uploading images. There is software included that also allows you to create albums of the images stored on the disk.
I bought this a few weeks ago as my home media center, and we use it as a PC, storage and as the movie storage/playback device. The good things are: 1) HDMI port. I like the ability to connect my TV to it directly to play back all of my media, as opposed to using the ever-kludgy DLNA navigation UI on the TV to access media on the storage. I use a wireless keyboard/mouse or the Android QRemote app for playback control 2) Gobs of functionality and apps. Just a crap load of functionality and s/w included with this little device. Surprisingly, it all just seems to work. 3) The OS is easy to navigate and use. 4) Overall, the device feels fast enough to me both from the storage and app performance perspective. I'm not putting any demanding loads on it and not planning to; for home use, I found it totally sufficient (I bought the 4Gb version). 5) Noise has never been a concern. You can hear it when it spins up the drives, but most of the time it sits there...
