Summary: This is my second ReadyNAS product, joining my NVX. As of the latest firmware update, both models offer the same features, which is nice. I used to use large rack-mounted computers as my file servers at home, which was fine until I moved to a place that didn't have enough power in the places where I...
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.
Summary: Great product. Much faster read and write speeds compared to a Dlink device that I've had for a few years. Currently I can sustain 350mbps write to the device, with the limiting factor probably being my switches.
Pros: Good speed Loads of features Easy to use web interface Runs cool
Cons: Would be nice to see an active directory connector for authentication No other grievances

Summary: Came in pristine condition shrouded in no less than three boxes. Was very easy to install four hard drives in enclosure. Ran into an issue with the backup button on the front panel. I needed to actuate the button in order to reformat the installed hard drives but the button was DOA.
Summary: I had previously used a Linksys Mediahub. It did the job, but left me feeling disapointed due to speed and some odd behaviour. The ReadyNAS has been a step above, however the initial install and setup was not nearly as simple as it was on the Linksys.
Pros: -plenty of tech-savvy options available (pwr dwn) -active online community -heat sensors for monitoring -compact design -fast read/write
Pros: Once setup, the NAS is awesome. Fast file transfer for a home device, easy migration to larger drives and from plain disks to RAID 1. UI is ugly but it gets the job done. Lots of useful addons as well. You can also set it up so that you can SSH into the NAS and basically use it as a Linux box. On...
Cons: Huge pain to get this thing configured. I put an unclean drive into the NAS and the thing wouldn't even boot the web interface. I had to dig around on the net to figure out how to force the device to format the drive. After getting the web UI up, my 3TB drive showed up as only 700GB. A firmware u...
