NAS products are an equal balance between hardware specifications and software features. Together, one compliments the other and a well-rounded product immerges.
The GIGABYTE GR-EZI04H ships with a solid core of software features. The applications list is large as you can see; the unit doesn't leave much off the table for most users. In our testing, we didn't find a way to add new features through modules like we can with many other top NAS products. That means you'll need to rely on GIGABYTE to update the NAS firmware with new features you may want. Since this is a new product, we can't speculate on how frequently GIGABYTE will update the firmware/software or how they'll handle additions.
For me personally, I would like to see a Usenet client built in, but we didn't find one. GIGABYTE did include support for personal cloud services, the hot application for the NAS market. With a personal cloud your NAS becomes your cloud based storage through the internet for your mobile devices.
