liking it so far

dmac, Amazon
21 June 2015
  • Summary: tossed 4 3tb drives in it and array was all set in pretty fast time. transferred 3.5 TB of media files over from mediapc and average transfer speeds was 95MBps, my readnynas 104 runs around 50MBps so the 314 seems to handle transfers a lot faster even while array was still building/syncing for first...

A Great Unit with Minor OS Issues

Microdev "IT Executive", Amazon
6 February 2015
  • Summary: This is a great NAS that is only let down slightly by Netgears OS 6. For reference, I own many Netgear NAS units going back to the old SPARC based NV+. While this is a review of the 314, I would be remiss to not mention my critical review of the ReadyNAS 104 and OS 6.

NETGEAR Customer Service Terrible - Online Backup Storage Service Very Expensive

John Daigle Jr. "jdinjax", Amazon
13 October 2014
  • Summary: Netgear's Customer Service is among the worst I have ever experienced. I purchased this product last week. The product appears good so far.

This product should not have been released

A. Kieran, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: After 9 months of use, I've given up on this product, and Netgear. I was happy with my existing ReadyNAS Pro 4 so I bought this so I could back it up to the other NAS, at a different physical location. They market RN Replicate as being designed specifically for this purpose.

Decent Unit, Very Poor Technical Support

Leland D Johnson, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: The unit itself is relatively simple to set up. For a home user or corporate user who have IT personnel onsite, this is a reasonable system. That is until you need tech support. Mine had a drive fail inside of 30 days of putting it into use.

Outstanding product

Scott Sallis, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Have been quite pleased with this server, but even more impressed with NetGear tech support. (Level 3). With their support, we're successfully backing up to our old NetGear NAS NV+ off site.

It's a nice NAS for the money

M. Porter, Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: It's a nice NAS for the money. The only issue I have is the ReadyCLOUD does not always load so it is very easy to have that out of sync, I was hoping to replace Dropbox with that. I may look at other options in the future. I also have PLEX running and the performance is good.
