Great NAS for the Money

EdCaffreyMS, Staples

  • 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.

NetGear NAS 102

  • 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.

So far, so good

BadBob, Staples

  • 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.

Falls Short on Windows Compatibility

Michael, Amazon
29 January 2015
  • Summary: This was totally unexpected. The ReadyNAS doesn't work with Windows network discovery. This means that you can't browse to it when mapping drives, and that it doesn't appear in file explorer as a computer or a network. You can map drives manually by entering \\server\share, but this pretty tedious. I've spent 15-20 hours on this. I called Netgear about the problem. Twice. Each time I was told, essentially, that it's a problem with Windows, not the RN102.

NEVER EVER BUY NETGEAR PRODUCT

qdo, Amazon
20 January 2015
  • 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.

Net gear NAS Storage solution

John V, Staples
16 January 2015
  • Excerpt: This piece of hardware is working so well in my office environment. I have 7 PC computers with terabytes of data in each one. Using this NAS drive from Netgear is streamlining the back up process and creating a very cost effective solution for our office security. We will make a complete backup that will stay in house, and then another that will live off site. Setup was super easy and we had this system up and running in no time.

THE BEST BUY FOR THE MONEY-EASY TO SETUP.

humam, Amazon

  • 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.
