Summary: I love this thing. It. Is the best little NAS I could find for the money. I wish I had gotten a bigger one. It is easily put together the drive bays slide in and easy. You have to be picky about the drives to put in for Netgear to honor the warranty on it. So read up on those.
Summary: I really like this Nas device as its easy to configure and pretty fast access times. I aslo like the Addon software that ReadyNas provides for free. The DLNA media streaming software works quite well. it allowed me to stop using my PC as a media server.
Best solution for small network backup, sile server, and media server

Summary: I installed the Ultra 2 NAS as a Raid 1 Storage appliance. I setup the security and share pretty much straight forward except I had to change my local security policy to allow stronger encryption. I love the power management of the unit.
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.
Summary: Device arrived well packaged. Standard setup took under 10 minutes (user time), device took a little longer to scan and complete internal initialization. I then tried starting with one Seagate 2TB Drive, Adding another 3TB Drive and finally upgrading the Original 2TB drive to 3TB, all processes were...
A great choice for this non-technical user. Performance is outstanding and it handles 4TB drives

Summary: I know just enough about technology to be dangerous. That is, I know enough to want my own big home NAS and to have the redundancy of a RAID configuration, but beyond that I know nothing about networking. I need to rely on the built-in software.
Summary: I've had the ReadyNAS Ultra 4 for over a year and it has operated flawlessly. Started w/ 2 drives and once they were full popped in a third unformatted disk and it was automatically formatted and data re-striped without incident.
