Summary: This is a great product. I had a few minor install glitches, but Netgear support was excellent and got me up and running. I do have one issue, as the product is advertised as working with Plex Media Server, but they don't tell you up front that the processor power of this unit is not sufficient to support streaming of HD video. I am working around this using it as a network share, but this is not as full featured as Plex would be. Other than that, this thing is amazing.
Summary: I received this ReadyNAS 102 as part of a Friends and Family program at Netgear. The setup is very straight forward. I just plugged the unit in and went to the URL given to setup the device. After the initial setup, I performed a firmware upgrade since I noticed a new version was available. Note: You need to manually refresh the browser page or open a new window. I sat there for a little while and the device doesn't automatically refresh the web page.
Love the ReadyCloud remote access feature, great value for the money, good performance.

Summary: I bought the ReadyNAS 102 because I wanted a simple way to access my files remotely. After reading up on the new ReadyCLOUD solution and watching some of the youtube videos available, I was excited to access my data from anywhere. I got the unit setup quickly and uploaded files right away. Now I can upload, download, and view files while at home or work regardless of what device I'm using.
Summary: I've been online and on phone with Netgear at least three times with phone time in excess of two hours. I can back up my MacBook Pro (wirelessly) but not my HP Desktop (which is hardwired to router. Now, however, since my Netgear R6300 router in on the fritz neither of these computers can see the RN102 (nor the other two laptops in the household). This has rendered what was limited utility to no utility. Not a happy camper. Update as of ~ June 1, 2013.
Summary: I have good knowledge about home computing in general. Got 10200 to back up my mac systems. The initial set up wasn't bad, but was unable to backup my mac systems. So called the Netgear agent it took him over 3 hrs to set it up which was over a 2 day time period. But unfortunately it didn't last for a long time. Now my system is unable to back up using timemachine, because it didn't find the Netgear 10200. So back to square one.
