Summary: I installed 4 off Seagate 3.5 inch 3TB Constellation CS disks and powered it on. It auto configured itself, auto updated it's ROM and has been working flawlessly for the last 3 months. Power has been cut 4 times and the NAS came back without any issues. FTP server is superb and easy to configure. Solid heavy build quality, steel throughout, good finish with no sharp edges. Twin network ports can be teamed for high speed or redundancy or both.
Summary: This is a superb Network Attached Storage (NAS), and feel confident with Netgear and what is on offer here. The unit comes with no hard drives included so you will need to get them yourself, the size and number you want is up to you, this holds up to four drives. The set up process is straight forward and easy, comes with supplied software. There are some configuration settings to consider how it works and how and this is dependent on how you want to use it.
Summary: This is the first Network Attached Storage (NAS) device I have ever used so the whole experience has been new for me. I got this because the level of data I seem to be amassing seems to warrant a lot more space than just an average external hard drive and with this type of device you get the added comfort and reassurance that your stuff is safe, secure and protected at a more advanced level.
