Summary: This product works great, easy to install and access. It's fast and secure. But, the best part is the tech support. I have never had a better experience calling in for support. The support staff was knowledgeable, US based, helpful, courteous, and effective. The first line was able to discuss technical details of protocols and understood the product software architecture. It wasn't just telling me to reboot. I'm definitely a Netgear fan now.
Summary: I did my research and finally settled on this unit. Nice looks, very compact and I thought it would do the trick for me. I am very disappointed with its performance, though, and can't believe how slow it is in actual use. I am now looking for a replacement because I just can't wait for it to do its thing. Did not meet my needs. Slow, slow, slow.
Summary: Sadly, you never really know with these types of products, but this ReadyNAS Duo has worked great. No problems setting it up, no problems creating or sharing folders, no problems mapping drives from Win7 PCs, and most importantly, no problems with our online backup picking up those mapped drives.
Summary: This thing has so many options FTP server, HTTP access for photo sharing, user access restriction, dual print server, the list just goes on and on. This is the second home NAS unit I have purchased. The first one just had a built in print server with it. We have all of our photos, Videos, thousands of soungs and music videos on our NAS and we can access our data from any of our computers in the house even wireless. Now everyone can print from anywhere.
Summary: My craviting for more goodies aside, this box really hits the mark. I really love the X-RAID feature where it keeps two copies of your backup in sync, and in case of one hd failure, you can swap it out for a new one, and the box will then sync the old and new box. I also appreciate the FTP server it provides, which allows me to share and share alike. A few points nox however...
some features simply could not be made to work -- do not buy

Summary: I am fairly tech savy so when I read the reviews prior to buying I figured that I could make this work with my Win7 computers on my home network. Basic set up -- the unit was fairly easy to set up for backup. The web management interface is VERY VERY slow. When the other reviews complain about the usbilty of the interface, believe it.
Summary: This unit delivers everything it promises, and has everything (for me at least) needed for a home network. It uses wired, not wireless, to connect to your Router (this is good, as wired throughput is much better than when using wireless.) You can then access it via wireless anyway if you have a wireless router, this just dictates where it gets placed physically. I drop files from all the computers in the house to it, as well as use it as a home media server.
Summary: I transferred 80 gigs of pictures to the drive. So I thought. The final destination showed the same amount of bytes as the original destination. The file structure was identical, however, none of the files in the subdirectories actually transferred so there were a lot of empty subdirectories. Had to buy an undelete software to hopefully recover years of photos.
Summary: I love the notion of having a file and web server in my home. While I am no server expert, I have advanced skills and can solve about any computer issue. I configured the NAS with no problem. The only issue I have is I can't see the device via HTTP over the www (outside my network). I have spent frustrating HOURS with technical support.
