    Promise Technology Apollo Cloud 2 reviews

    Apollo 8TB 2-Bay NAS Server is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A great NAS Server, but hardly intuitive B&H was flawless ... but opening the package was where the fun ended. �This unit has many beta-ish qualities, the least of which is the sparse documentation and un-narrated You-Tube videos which make up the bulk of online support. I wound up rebooting my unit twice before it would reliably mount; transferring an initial backup (about 330GB) took almost 20 hours. �I have still not been able to get an attached USB drive to work, although the Promise unit apparently sees it. I'll accept the word of other reviewers that the Apollo 2-Bay is a big step up from Promise's previous products. �Since it is marketed largely to Apple users who don't have time to waste and require the hardware to 'just work,' I would hope the company would listen to complaints and provide an intelligent support source. �The silent videos are an embarrassment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a bit more documentation for setup Seems to work well but NOT really easy to set up. �All seems to go OK but then glitches and have to start again. �Information is available online but not easy to use format so questions go unanswered. �It would be better to have a manual included with the device which had a detailed index for specific questions. �An online FAQ is too cumbersome.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Apolling! Its difficult to know where to begin when describing the short-falls with this device. Lets start with the feature which is likely to be the most reliable... USB transfer. You can connect a USB drive directly to the Apollo to transfer data. Great for large numbers of photographs or videos. Because youre connecting via USB, any network problems should not get in the way. I have never managed to transfer more than a handful of files. After many failures, I contacted Promise support and eventually they connected to the drive (without asking or telling me this was happening) and somehow enabled the one transfer that actually worked. The USB transfer speed is glacially slow. It takes days, not hours... many many times slower than the initial transfer to the USB drive and normally fails. Thats the first and last transfer I have done which worked reliably. On a Mac, the file system built into the Apollo has many faults. For example, if you upload a library from something like Aperture, all the thumbnails of pictures stored in the library are shown as files making finding the original a nightmare. Its impossible to sort by size or date. The face recognition is woeful compared with say an iPhone and Photos. I have had no response from Apollo when asking for a refund. My recommendation would be to avoid this product. Look on the Promise forum first in any case.
