Skip It !

Gabriel W., Newegg

  • Summary: If you really like Netgear, buy the 4-bay RN104 with drives pre-installed; this will stop the tech support blame-game. Otherwise save them the inconvenience of having to answer your calls and buy another brand!
  • Pros: Good basic unit. Easy online access. Pretty black case.
  • Cons: This model does NOT support vertical expansion by replacing drives with larger ones. All supporting documentation is contrary to this fact. Manuals(digital) are also not up to date, and are of little help in setting up advanced functions. Support is a joke. Stock answer is to backup data (6TB to ...

Revel D., Amazon

  • Summary: Technical support is essentially useless, IF you can reach them and have 2-3 hours to interact. They never could get the readynas remote to work. The device is buggy requiring reboots to stay connected.

So far, so good – NAS torture test

MacGyver, Amazon
22 June 2015
  • Summary: A quick background: I use this server as my primary server for my home network which runs two HTPCs (Home Theater Personal Computer) and all media content is stored on this NAS. Also four tablets pull DLNA media off of this server as well. One HTPC runs all day long with my kids at home.

Best low cost NAS in my experience.

A. W. Benway "storage engineer", Amazon
17 June 2015
  • Summary: It is excellent for the money. It is far simpler (although 30% slower on sequential writes of large files) than my much higher-end QNAP 219+ unit (more than 2x the cost with no drives).

Various issues undermine the product

J. Stewart, Amazon
24 March 2015
  • Summary: I've been using this for over 3 months so far. Initial setup was fine. I am mostly using this to store all of family pictures and videos with RAID redundancy and the ability for anyone in our family to access. Actual access is infrequent -- a month may go by between uses.

Met and Exceeded Expectations

Robert Zaugg, Amazon
9 March 2015
  • Summary: Quick and easy setup, and a whole lot of extra bonus feature sets too! Photo galleries, external cloud sharing, time machine backups, etc, I know I'll find even more to use this for in a very short time!

Poor reliability as a result of bad firmware

ChiefIlliniwek5 "ChiefIlliniwek5", Amazon
4 March 2015
  • 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.

  • Summary: It needs a better owners manual...or you need to use the web to get it set-up, but otherwise works exactly as advertised.

DO NOT BUY from Netgear

Just a customer, Amazon
1 March 2015
  • Summary: Netgear NAS 102 model - DO NOT WASTE TIME WITH THIS COMPANY! I bought two NAS102 devices. None of the works reliably and Netgear despite superficial effort does not provide real support for these. Both devices do not have stable connection.
