NEVER EVER BUY NETGEAR PRODUCT

qdo, Amazon
7 days ago
  • Summary: The installation and setup are too complex I have spent too much time trying to get it to work. Finally I get it work but a few days later I get an error message complaining the volume has been degraded. Live chat with customer support, they told me the second drive had an issue. I bought the new one and it couldn't rebuild the RAID. Chat with technical support again. They asked me to pull out and reboot then this and that but didn't work.

THE BEST BUY FOR THE MONEY-EASY TO SETUP.

  • Summary: I purchased 5 different NAS/Media Servers to experiment with. By far this one was the easiest to deploy and use. I use it with 2TB drives and it works like gem. My application is for my local TV station which will use is as a library media server on our playout rack. The cost to feature is perfect for the budget minded facility . I would highly recommend this product.

  • Summary: Great software, sound machine, does what its suppose to, and after all of that it streams my media (Music, movies, pictures) to all of my network enabled devices. To top that all off the price was very reasonable!

Okay product - Not so good service

Lizbeth Angel, Amazon

  • Summary: Why am I giving this device 1 star? Allow me to explain. I am an IT guy and have been working in the tech field for over 8 years. I was able to set this up myself, however every time I called or chatted with Netgear support with a question, it took HOURS before I could get a helpful answer. The last time I chatted with them they refused service to me because they needed "proof" that I bought this product.

glad I purchased it

CzarofMiami, Amazon

  • Summary: I already had an Iomega cloud server, but wasn't able to make it a media server that I could stream to my big screen TV. That's why I bought this for it's built in Plex capability. I had two 2TB external hard drives just lying around, but I was able to put the external drive in here and create a media cloud server that I can stream from anywhere on virtually any system; including chromecast. I was surprised on how compact it was and setup was a breeze.

Nice NAS for home use

Charles Bechtel, Amazon
28 December 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this to replace my Iomega ix2-200 NAS which was really slow. I installed 2 Western Digital Red drives plugged it in and it was up and running almost immediately. It automatically set up mirroring (which took a few hours for the disks to format properly). Once the disks were ready I transferred a bunch of media from the other server. This took a long time - ten years of digital photos, movies, and 400+ music albums.

Problem Unit

William J. Magiske Jr., Amazon
28 December 2014
  • Summary: I have two of these. One works great, the other is always having a problem. I use one to backup the other remotely. Recently the remote one stopped working, and it looks like I'm going to have to do a factory reset AGAIN! The customer support could be a little better too....

This is a waste of money for home use

Kevin, Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: The interface is too complex for home use. I can't get any of the functions to work including drag & drop, backups, itunes media, etc. This is a waste of money for home use. It requires extensive knowledge of current network methodologies, technology, and a deep understanding of the operating systems you are trying to connect. I have spent too much time trying to get it to work. Tech support seems as confused as me.

Great home NAS

John Tomlinson, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I replaced a PC with Microsoft Home Server with the NetGear ReadyNAS unit. I was looking for a larger and more expandable NAS and I found it! I Installed 2 WD Red 2 TB hard disks and used the default mirroring option on the NAS -- and things are super. The only difference I found from my MS Home Server is that sometimes the read/write time 'seems' a little slower -- BUT since everything is all mirrored this is a small adjustment that I am happy to live with.
