but I'm sure it can't be any worse than this

Summary: Immediately when I began to use this device it had problems. It took a call to customer support to get the device working (after a factory default reset.....why would it need this if it was brand new?). Only a few days after I got it up and running, the device became undiscoverable on my network. Ultimately this required another factor default reset.
Summary: I have solo law practice, with my assistant. We wanted a device where we can store documents, created by either of us, under one folder for all clients, and be able to retrieve the documents, by either of us, edit and re-save as required. I made 3 attempts with the Netgear reps to install this darn thing. We spent over 11 hours total and the 3 different reps could not figure out the installation.
Excerpt: I purchased this item after wasting 2 days on a WD EX2 4TB unit. This device with two new Toshiba 2TB hard drives was about $30 less, and its 10 times the NAS device! This NAS offers a great deal of functions, is fairly easy to setup, and is suprisingly fast in the read/write functions for a NAS in this class. It has a 1.2Ghz ARM processor, 512MB of RAM, and two USB 3.0 port for external storage connection.
... owned this for about 2 months and I'm quite happy, so far

Summary: I've owned this for about 2 months and I'm quite happy, so far. I configured it with two WD Blue 1TB HDDs and it was very easy to install and configure. (All configuration/administration is from a web interface. Nice!) I've loaded it with about 400GB of movies, 70GB of music, and several GB of photos.
Excerpt: I purchased this unit with two WD Red NAS drives. It is RAID1 mirror that sits on the network. The web interface works very well and appears as a storage icon in windows explorer. That's all there is to it for protecting your data.
Summary: Great device. Love the built in Plex server. I have found no issues or complaints after using it for a few months. It takes a little bit of setup to get it the way you want it and if you are not a technical person it might be a little difficult, but after you get it figured out it's great.
Excerpt: Just started to work with this device. For connecting to a Mac, it takes a bit of research as the directions are mostly for Windows. I was unable to connect to my Mac for awhile and then it finally took. I am waiting for my second drive to show up so I can make full use of the NAS. For beginners, make sure you have a good understanding of RAID if that is the direction you want to go. I'm hoping I can get it functioning as I want and I believe I can.
Summary: Seems to be working well for me so far. I get ~35MBps when transferring over gigabit. I only use it as a local networked drive so I cannot say anything about using it from outside your local network and the speeds that it may offer for that.
Summary: Purchased Nov '14 If you bought this to use as what it is meant for, it's 5 stars... if you bought it to replace something you currently have a computer doing FORGET IT. If you want to connect it to your network through a router FORGET IT. People have complained about this topic before. I don't think it is an issue with the ReadyNAS so much some issue with the router.
