Good Value & Reliability BUT...

Summary: Great Nas, but the write speeds are really slow considering the price of the nas. The netgear readynas software makes up for that though since it's easy to use and manage. The tooless installation is very nice as well. I already have 3 of them and they are great!
Summary: I like ReadyNAS gear and have deployed multiples of different models into my clients over the years. This product is no exception. My advice would be to read carefully the write-up because the unit ships with only one drive; if you desire to set up a RAID 0 or RAID 1 configuration (which this unit easily supports) you need to order another hard drive
Summary: So far so good. I'm using this in a small office for some shared documents. Honestly its probably a bit overkill for our needs but the price was right and I got to replace an ageing windows xp machine that was doing nothing but hosting a shared folder. I'm sure this consumes much less power and hopefully will be far more reliable.
Summary: Easy to use, works exactly like I expected it to. One feature that sucks though is their access control. Nonsensical user interface makes group management cumbersome, adding users but not being able to give them WRITE access is confusing, they can write anyway. I had to take off a few stars for that, bad UI is something we had to deal with 20 years ago. There is no excuse for it now other than corner cutting sloppy laziness.
Summary: I bought two of these and populated them with WD Red drives. I operate them as 1TB mirrored arrays. They've been live about one month. One is used as primary, shared storage in our little home video studio. The other is wired by Ethernet cable at the other end of the house for daily, incremental backups of our critical data (mainly A/V libraries, business documents, and bookkeeping documents). So far they appear to work well.

Summary: Works well for the most part. The interface is a little rough around the edges. It could use some work. However, no problems so far with my WD 4gig drives. Plays media well. Not the fastest network interface but for the price I can't complain too much.
