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 ...

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.
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.
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.
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!
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: 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.
