Netgear didn't tell you the CPU speed here because it's slower than listed

Al Abama "Al", Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: On the surface it looks good. It's a metal case which looks nice and solid quality. There is no qualm with the build quality of the unit. The software itself is fine for basic purposes. I had been looking at the Synology units and it would seem that their "add ons" for their devices are developed more regularly and with more of them than for ReadyNAS.

Have it for couple of days and already love it.

Evgeni, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Despite my wife's arguments against this purchase, that's a great product. And the price tag was great too, under $200. It took me a little bit more than just a few clicks to set it up, but I wasn't expecting a "plug and play" device. Also it is a peace of mind. No more worries about unplugging your external hard drive it when it is writing and loosing data or mess it up, especially when used by my love ones.

This is not the NAS you are looking for....

320Flyer, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: After being a generally satisfied user of a ReadyNAS Duo for a few years I was looking to upgrade our home NAS. I use the NAS for Mac "Time Machine" backups and as a home media server....nothing too extreme. Being familiar with ReadyNAS I purchased this unit figuring it would be an easy setup with an increase in performance. WRONG.

great device but get your own backup software

kinematic, Amazon
27 June 2012
  • Summary: device works very well and am happy with the performance. i use it to back up 2 pcs in my office. however, the ReadyNAS backup software has issues and will not work with win 7 x64, too bad as it would surely have simplified my backup needs. Did not even bother with the Memeo, looked like a toy, instead i have been using win7 backup but it is not that efficient and wastes a lot of disk space so i am going to use another backup software. i have genie so iw ill try that.

Do not Purchase WD20EARS Drives for this Unit

Sean OConnor, Amazon
24 February 2012
  • Summary: Amazon lists this drive on the products page of this unit so I purchased two of them. Then I read all the problems people have so I contacted Western Digital. These drives are not to be used in NAS units or any server or pc running a RAID configuration. I am returning the drives I ordered and will be looking for an alternative product. I have not had a chance yet to actually work with this NAS as I need to purchase solid hard drives.

Received a lemon

rainmakr, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: I must have received a lemon. Performance copying files was OK (45 - 75 MB/s), but Time Machine performance crawled between 216 kb - 2.9 MB/s. Also, it came with two Seagate ST2000DL003 installed. Less than 48 hours after first turning this on, one of the drives failed SMART tests. It was the fourth Seagate drive failure I'd had in 6 months, and I only have 4 drives in service.

Worst customer service from Netgear

onlytruth, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • Summary: I received this product and set it up as per instructions. After one week of trying to configuring it to make it work for remote access on http, I called the customer service and they were extremely frustrating to deal with and said it cannot be done. I am novice but skilled enough to know that its doable.

Två snäpp bättre än Duo NAS

morslillacalle@hotmail.com, Pricerunner
31 October 2012
  • Summary: Jag har läst recenssioner om både denna maskin och Duo NAS och känner inte igen andras synpunkter på att fläktarna skall vara "högljudda". Vid uppstarten så går fläkten på max för att efter några sekunder gå ner i varvtal. Faktum är att de överröstas rejält av min PC som ändå är ganska tyst. Snabbheten (läs-/skrivning) gör att jag tror att den skulle klara en kontorsmiljö med upp till 8-10 användare, ganska bra (under förutsättning att nätverket är snabbt).
