Amazing NAS

David Perez, Amazon

  • Summary: I first owned the ReadyNAS Pioneer Pro which was a great device for its time. I purchased this unit and was amazed with the new Operating System and features it has. I love that I can access my device from the cloud with minimal configuration.

  • Summary: Netgear products are very good. The 516 is a good product but has some flaws that are not clear in the documentation. 1. You can not move disks from a Readynas pro into the 516 as architecture is different. Doing so corrupts the disks. Have to copy the data over. 2.

Not willing to support their customers - DO NOT BUY

James D., Newegg
17 April 2015
  • Summary: The box looks good and seems to work, but lacks a good user interface. The user interface requires far too many clicks and hides important information. The device is not easy to configure for anything other than their own RAID technology, and when you do it doesn't provide important details.
  • Pros: High capacity, 6 drives, dual GB network
  • Cons: Poor user interface and support, very pricy

Nice Storage Device and very comparable to a Drobo 5. If you are debating go with the Netgear.

Jason M. Eiting, Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: Oh yeah this will hold a TON of storage both photographic and videographic and pretty much any digital media. Fairly easy to setup for someone with moderate computer experience. What you cannot figure out reading the manual you can find info on Google easily. Attaches directly to my wireless router.

Decent, but do your research. *edited 11/24/2014

  • Summary: One sentence review: Solid foundation but advanced features are promises that haven't been fulfilled yet. -See my update at the bottom, this is well on its way, now. As a piece of hardware, I have no doubts about this NAS. It is very solid, and instills much confidence.

Nice unit

Greg DePasse, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I've been using this for a year now, and I have to say it's been running great. It's practically silent, performance is great, and the ease of use is amazing. I have a previous generation Pro 6 that I use as a backup target which works out very well.
