Great performance and support, some software problems

Doug Weathers "picky industrial design critic", Amazon

  • Summary: This thing is WAY faster than the NAS it replaced (an old Linksys no longer supported by Cisco). On our gigabit Ethernet network it's faster than a locally-attached USB 3 flash drive. It's also dead quiet, which was a nice surprise. It looks good, and it's easy to install and remove the hard drives. Setup is easy and quick. Support from NETGEAR is very good. My online submission of a ticking noise from the fan eventually ended up with NETGEAR sending me a new chassis.

Good Network Attachment Storage

Kaio, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this NAS (Network Attachment Storage) nearly 2 years ago. During the first 18-month ownership, it was replaced twice by Netgear. Well, you can understand the inconvenience of interruption in home network storage system but also shows the not-so-bad after-sales customer care by Netgear.

Netgear Stora

  • Summary: Really good item which only just failed to make 5 stars due to the time it took to do the basic set up for the administrator. Instructions need to be clearer and to represent the product shipped NOT a version 3 releases removed from it. However once set up it does exactly what it is supposed to with minimal intervention.

Good low cost NAS and even better with Root Shell access

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: The Netgear Stora was easy to set up and was flashed to the latest release. I have set up two users and in Windows XP and Vista I can map the Stora to a network drive and copy files. The stora runs Linux inside and more advanced users should also check out [...] where there are instructions for getting root ssh access to the box and telnet access to the box. Only flaw is the way it handles mains power.

Does everything its supposed to.

  • Summary: I've had this for nearly seven months. It sits on my network and had been brilliant. I added a second hard drive in a RAID configuration for extra security. Its accesible from our PCs and has been generally brilliant. Recently I spotted that only one hard drive was working. After quite a bit of faffing it turns out that the hard drive that was supplied with the device had stopped working, the other one in a RAID1 configuration had kept on going and my data was safe.

Netgear Stora

Tee, Amazon
15 September 2010
  • Summary: When I placed the order I was told it would be delivered within 2 months, it actually turned up in 2 weeks!!! Followed the instructions to set it up and it connected to my network first time. I didn't go on to add their software for backing up I use SyncBack but all has been good so far.

It's nice when technology works

Mr. Mischief, Amazon

  • Summary: Firstly, I found the Stora extremely simple to set up - I plugged it into the mains and into my router, turned it on and it began setting itself up with very little interaction from me. I bought a second hard drive at the same time as the Stora, with the intention of putting the two drives into RAID configuration.

It does what I wanted but major flaw in itunes

Chris, Amazon
15 April 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the stora to share files, music and photos between 3 computers and it does exactly that. The external drive also serves as a backup storage area. I bought an extra disk to allow the RAID functionality. Setting up the stora took very little time and my 2 laptops, 1 vista, 1 win7 and my desktop win7 were soon accessing the drive no problem. I have however found some limitations and these appear more to do with Itunes than the stora device.

Great product but needs better file security

Mr. G. Tomlinson, Amazon
3 April 2010
  • Summary: This is a great product and you can access it with any computer and if you have a ps3 or xbox 360 it will even stream music and video to your console. The problem I have with this is the file security. Once you give someone access to the device, even though they aren't administrators, they can delete your files. All the administrator access does is give you access to the preferences menu, someone who is not administrator doesn't get this access.

So far, so good

Snapperfire, Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: This was my first exploration into home NAS and my selection of the Stora was based upon previous experience of Netgear kit, the Stora's features/price and the range of positive reviews. I was looking to: deal with the sprawl of my media files stream the odd clip to my PS3, centralise my backups, have sufficient capacity, (there's never enough) and importantly have some inbuilt redundancy in the form of RAID/Mirrored drives.
