User Reviews

  • Uselessly generic error messages waste too much of user time.

  • First boot of 8.3.1-release-p2 drops you immediately into debugger on Dell R720xd with PERC H710 controller. Forums not helpful.

  • The app is descent but do not expect any support whatsoever from their forums. Asking a question typically results in a smart ass answer filled with egotistical nonsense here are some great examples of that forums.freenas.org/showthread.php?12126-Moving-FreeNAS-OS-from-USB-Stick-to-HDD&p=56197 forums.freenas.org/showthread.php?10588-Host-Wordpress-website-on-FreeNAS-8-3-0&p=56199&viewfull=1#post56199

  • It has not worked for me so good!

  • I spent a good bit of time on performance tuning but was never able to improve the write performance to the ZFS pool (read performance was fine). When I heard about NAS4Free, I installed it in the place of my existing FreeNAS installation and the performance has been outstanding! When I use the windows explorer to open the shared dataset with over 3000 files and lots of directories, the list view in the explorer is filled in: FreeNAS 8: close to 1 minute. NAS4free x64 9.1.0.1.457: less than 1 second. I have thought all the time that FreeNAS was the way to go, it seems no longer the case.
