Netgear Storage Central = crap

Stay away from the Netgear Storage Central SC101.

It's a cute little box that you slip a couple hard drives into, then it becomes a network storage device. It costs about $120, minus the drives, and offers RAID 0 and 1. Sounds like a great deal.

But the quality is utter crap. The installation software is SERIOUS broken, crashing TWICE during setup. It then completely lost one of the drives I installed and couldn't get it back. And when I tried to remove the drive so I could reformat it on another machine, the Molex power connector broke.

I've been working with computers for over 20 years, and I have never had a Molex connector break.
