Working well under Fedora 19

  • Summary: Length:: 0:35 Mins This is a review for ReadyNAS 102 NAS box with 2x1TB drive. The ReadyNAS has many potential uses (file-sharing, cloud storage, media servers). I was interested in it as a backup storage for my critical data. It is good to have a copy of this data on another box in case something catastrophic happens to the main computer, and the RAID 1 drive provides an extra layer of security in case one of the drives goes bad.

NETGEAR ReadyNAS gets an A+++++++++++

Tech Teacher, Staples

  • Excerpt: The NETGEAR ReadyNAS 100 Series 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage RN10200 by Netgear is perfect for the classroom. This allows us the freedom to store and use things from a variety of computers. It also saves space on all of the classroom computers allowing them to run faster by not being bagged down. One of my classes is yearbook. This gives us one central location to dump and store all the large picture files until needed at a later date.

Nice Product, great bundle deal

  • Summary: I purchased one of these with a bundled deal, effectively you got a 1Tb WD Red hard disk for free. Great Value I have sited it under my TV, and have it connected to my network via a 500Mbs Homeplug, works well although obviously not as quick as connecting a network cable directly to it and making use of the Gigabyte network connection. The software allows you access through the internet and has been useful.

A great storage solution.

  • Excerpt: This Netgear NAS drive bay works great on LAN. The plus side is your can swap out the drives for more storage if one drive fills up. Works and installs just as easily as any other NAS drive and it will keep files off your main hard drive. This saves losing files and you can backup the drives in the bay as well. The downside of this drive bay is to not drop it. The last one I had died from a small drop which killed the controller card inside.

Great backup storage for all your data.

  • Excerpt: This is a good system and works well with your LAN and computer system. Setup is easy but you do have to purchase drives separately. Also just be sure to never drop it, even a small drop will damage the controller inside the unit. If you need extra storage then this unit is the way to go.

A beautifully made gadget that meets expectation and beyond

  • Summary: Purchased on March 01. Product came with firmware version 6.0.0 (OS 6). Installed own hard disk and used "ReadyCloud" to setup. Upgrade firmware to 6.1.6 immediately. Was quite wary about this product after studied many reviews on the web, thus surprised with the ease of use and functionality. The device is not noisy at all (indeed very quiet). It does not have any performance or functionality issue - for home use. Able to setup/configure/use the product with ease.

Was quite wary after reading some reviews, thus surprised with the ease of use and functionality. This unit is not noisy at all, indeed very quiet, for me, I need to be within inches to hear it.

Good value but hard to install.

  • Excerpt: This device gets 4 stars because the installation took longer that I expected. The documentation was poor, which required long sessions with the tech support people. They were good to get me working the way I wanted to use it. Once working the device is solid and quiet. I'm using the NAS 10200 with two 3 TB drives as an external RAID 1, 3TB drive, for my MAC PRO. Connection for the NAS to the MAC PRO by 1 Gb/s ethernet.
  • Pros: Compact, Fast, Quiet
  • Cons: Hard To Setup

Great price, Fast Transfer

  • Excerpt: Great for storing files(pics,video,documents) for home use or remote access. Cloud system is nice considering no monthly fees and the data is in your home and not a corporate server somewhere. Mobile apps could use some improvements if you use a tablet like i do mostly. Mobile apps are primarily designed for phone use and say so in heading. Will work with tablets but sometimes has trouble loading directories.
  • Pros: Compact, Fast
  • Cons: Connectivity Via Apps
