Works for me

Michael P., Newegg
4 April 2012
  • Summary: They don't seem to support the NAS.
  • Pros: Works. I hope if I have a drive failure I have data, and not two unreadable drives. I worry casue the support sucks.
  • Cons: Support sucks bad. Solve any problems in the first 90 days or pay for the support.

Much better now

Howard A., Newegg
26 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased my Stora about a year and a half ago. For the first 6 months there were monthly firmware patches/upgrades and the units did have problems. Also, there was the "undocumented" $20 annual fee for Premium Subscription to provide all of the capabilities advertised.
  • Pros: - Inexpensive (current price for 1TB unit is no more than most 1TB drives today) - Cost effective RAID capability for home users - Seamless remote access to your personal home/cloud storage - Can configure disks as RAID or JBOD - New MySync capability to synchronize files from your computer/lapto...
  • Cons: - Support - do not call Netgear for support, use forum1.netgear.com under the Stora forum. Unfortunately the standard Netgear support is not sufficiently knowledgable about this product and will routinely give bad/incorrect information, attempt to charge you money, and are not very competent. Axe...

Performed above expectations!

Michael D., Newegg
9 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this with the sole intention of streaming video and music to my PS3 and have ended up doing a great deal more with it - namely, streaming music to my android phone and through my browser at work.
  • Pros: Since completing setup, it's been 100% reliable JBOD configuration possible after firmware updates Reliable DLNA streaming
  • Cons: Setup was clunky. Software update funtion needed to be run repeatedly before all updates were applied. Some files display in the wrong directory over DLNA. I wouldn't recommend this device to someone of a low technical level.

interesting nas

Luigi O., Newegg
3 June 2011
  • Summary: Got it at a usually overpriced shop for 150$ (how is it possible?! cheaper than newegg? maybe they wrote the tag wrong). I really love it. 2 disks 2tb in automatic raid1, many features like torrent client or sharing online (I'd never do that but they are there)
  • Pros: -It accepts 2TB disks!!! -The USB can be used to attach other drives -It runs a small linux (stable) -Gigabit runs fast -Silent and power efficient -Nice web interface
  • Cons: - UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE (many times untill there are no more updates), not a con just something to do. - copying file inside windows network doesnt work after t oo many files, FTP is flawless and super reliable (use that!)

terrible

C B., Newegg
15 May 2011
  • Summary: I trust that this will be posted. The time invested in this is not worth the hassle. netgear lost a customer, permanently. I will be posting my case file log documenting this review. new egg is welcome to contact me regarding this review
  • Pros: network attached storage is a good concept. Netgear failed miserably with this.
  • Cons: I have called netgear, subscribed to their premium service, have been denied the premium subscription provided by gearhead subscription. within one year the disk drive has now failed and netgear states that it is not their responsibility.

Excellent Product

Anonymous, Newegg
10 May 2011
  • Summary: dont think twice if your looking for a cheap solution to mirrored backups and a cheap streaming solution.
  • Pros: Simple NAS used for backup of three computers (including a mac). Time machine can be a bit tricky, but once working its fine. The box states that this box can use ANY hard drive and it seems that might be true. Used a seagate 1 tb drive as second for mirror and works great. Can hot swap drives, w...
  • Cons: Im not finding the whole web browser system to be that great, but windows does recognize it as a network item and can be accessed that way.

Support only good for 3 MONTHS!

Casey D., Newegg
3 May 2011
  • Summary: Now I have an expensive 6-month old brick box sitting on my floor next to my router with my unaccessible backups. I plan on writing a letter to consumer reports after this. There was no disclaimer saying I would have to pay to be able to reset my device.
  • Pros: Worked great
  • Cons: UNTIL I pressed the reset button....normally you would think pressing the reset button would be fine, erase the settings, start over. Not in this case. IF you press the reset button, Netgear REQUIRES you to "renew your product key" before you can set it up again. The message claims you can call s...

Stops working after one week

Joshua P., Newegg
28 April 2011
  • Summary: This drive was not straight forward to set up. Furthurmore, it kept shutting off and I would not be able to turn it back on. I tried a different outlet several times. I wanted to buy it even though I saw the ratings were not so great because the Best Buy that I was at only had this for NAS's and I...
  • Pros: Nice design -- easy access to drives
  • Cons: Doesn't allow all features to work with XP, unpredictable (mine would periodically shut off... and sometimes not back on again!) Hassle to set up

2+ Years Flawless performance

James C., Newegg
29 March 2011
  • Summary: As a 16-year IT professional (w/ a background in engineering and architecture) I would highly recommend this NAS for a home networking and back-up solution. I personally would highly recommend this NAS solution (with the correct HDs installed) for ANY home-user or small business seeking high data...
  • Pros: High availability, reliability and stability for a COTS (Commercial off the shelf) home or small business data-backup solution. The price vs performance is well beyond exceptional compared to other NAS solutions. I replaced BOTH HDs w/ WD10EADS-00L5B1 1TB drives and have had a flawless experience...
  • Cons: None come to mind after 2+ years utilizing this NAS platform

Good low end DLNA server

Richard S., Newegg
15 February 2011
  • Summary: Make sure you configure your router for Qos (Quality of service) settings for it's net address. A little research into your router config will sometimes help performance. I bought two(2) of these because I only wanted the DNLA protocal function. Plus, we're a small family.
  • Pros: This is a barebones server to expect anymore would be fooling yourself. Great for the home. If your looking for a low cost device to put your photos, video and movie collections on this works through DLNA. You can pay extra for remote access service through Netgears Stora webserver, if you have t...
  • Cons: Don't expect this device to be more than a good DLNA server anything more is reaching beyond it's limits. Onlt one disk available for data. The second optioal disk must be used in a RAID1 configuration. The 2nd disk cannot be swapped with the 1st disk because it is formatted in Netgears own forma...
