Very good NAS

Spaceship Mark, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: Setup was very very easy. Since this NAS already had the drives installed, there was no need to format and designate volumes, etc. The default folders were already there and ready to use. You can manage and transfer files using the ReadyCloud website, ReadyRemote App, or your LAN web interface. I love that I can use either to not only manage my system but also can see and manage my files! That’s the nice features of using the cloud which my previous NAS could not do.

Everything I wanted

Mr. B. Rose "jaffacake", Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: At this price, I guess it's only going to be real nerds that click the buy button, so I'll be a little bit technical. - 6 drive bays, allows much more capacity than a 4-bay model. Means I could buy 4 x 3TB drives, giving 9TB usable space in RAID5, and still have space to add two more drives in future going up to 12TB and then 15TB as I add drives. A 4-bay model even with 4TB drives would only allow a total of 12TB of storage and the drives would cost more.

Easy to set up, good performance and lots of options

Vinman666, Amazon
17 September 2013
  • Summary: My prior experience with home and small office NAS drives has been with QNAP hardware, which I've found to be of good quality and reliability. While I've used Netgear network equipment for years, I had no experience with their NAS hardware, but my old 4TB QNAP was running out of space... The ReadyNAS 316 has 6 bays, each of which can take a 4TB disk and - handily - not all of them need to be filled immediately. More on that in a second.

Excellent kit, easy to set up and manage

Mark H, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: I have long fancied setting up a NAS server on my network and when I got offered the chance to review this I grabbed it. Knowing what I know now it is way more than I need at home but it is a brilliant piece of equipment. Set up is fairly straightforward. You will need a hard drive or two to go into this.

NAS for business or even home but only if you have space

Darren, Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: The review is for the diskless version. If you're looking for a small, easy to hide NAS drive to backup a few documents or photos, this isn't for you. As it holds ups to 6 x 4TB drives, it is more suited to small businesses or even home business backups. Firstly, it's the size of a small desktop PC. Secondly, the capacity for physical drives means only the most paranoid home used could make use of it.

Very easy and straightforward to setup

Doug "Doug", Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: I have decided to review this product in real time, so. 15.27 The box is opened and the very well designed and engineered NAS sees light for the first time. There is the box, a CD, screws for drives and an ethernet cable, power cable and an international power cable. 15:30 The drives go in (I ordered 4 X 1TB and 2 X 2TB Western Digital Red NAS drives) using the clips rather than screws, and the power lead is attached. The ethernet cable is attached.
