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.
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.
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.
Summary: I took it out of the box, plugged it into a gigabit port on my router, plugged in the power, pressed the button, and that was pretty much it! I just went to the DHCP table of my router to find the ReadyNAS's IP and was then able to login and configure it from the web interface.
Pros: I'd say the 25MB/s max speed rating from Netgear is fairly accurate. I've seen it peak at about 16MB/s on a 300Mb/s wireless bridge to a desktop. It's built very well, and it just works out of the box. Its fan almost sounds like a real server (LOL) when starting up but when idling or even transfe...
Cons: Web interface is somewhat slow Somewhat pricey for what it is Loud fan on startup
Summary: Running this on a Ubuntu Linux Network, shared & mounted on Linux workstations... NFS connection was actually slower than CIFS, so it's presently mounted as a CIFS drive... I'm getting read/write network copy speeds of about 5 to 15/MBps sec depending on other network traffic...
Pros: Small, quiet, good storage, easy to use Admin menu, automatic CLONE RAID backup... Easy to use overall...
Cons: Default share file permissions seem qurky and inconsistent... This doesn't seem to apply files/directories that are USER created... Had a heck of time getting all the default directories deleted - probably should have just deleted the entire share and started over.
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.
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.
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.
