Summary: I wanted to set the unit up in a 3 person office with separate accounts, user names and passwords for each since no one needed or wanted to share data between users. It took a two hour phone call to tech support to get it set up.
Summary: This is a great product - but only when the Netgear ReadyCloud server is operational. I bought two of these and setup one at my office and the other at home. I setup a cross backup for off-site redundancy.
Summary: This is a good inexpensive storage device. Performance is just ok. However, it says it supports Plex. However, it doesn't have enough processing power to encode/decode movies, so it really can't be a Plex Server, just store your movie files. But I've had it for a year and it seems rock solid so far.
Summary: I bought the diskless version of the ReadyNAS 102 to replace an old ReadyNAS Duo that I've had for a few years. I had hoped that this newer consumer grade 2-bay NAS would be similar to the older DUO in terms of set up. In the end I found the setup pretty easy to understand.
Summary: It feels good to know that my data is stored in and accessed from my own cloud at my home. With all of the cloud offerings today, I suspect privacy no longer remains but just to know that the data that you retrieve and store is totally in your control.
Summary: I've only had this NAS for about three weeks so judge my review on that basis. That having been said, I'm very happy with its performance so far. It's was simple to setup and offers a pretty decent set of applications and features. It Worked out of the box as a file server on all my devices.
Useless for internet/cloud use. OS is junky. Not worth the price. Terrible tech support.

Summary: Purchased this for home network use, and internet streaming use (audio and video). Had problems with the app Plex, the streaming program. What a load of junk this app is. I won't go into more painful detail. So there was an upgrade to the app. The update for it failed.
Good little NAS - exept for the 3.0 Port and limited apps

Summary: So far so good... the GUI is fairly straight forward. I bought it as a media server and it works well with samsung smart tvs or sony BR smart boxes..not on a visio e series tv, since they dont support many codecs or other video attributes.
