Excellent product. Worked well for over a year. I bought two.

  • Summary: My transfer speeds hovered around 70mbps most of the time. When I first got it installed it was really slow but I called Netgear and was surprised to actually get really GOOD support!

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.

Worked as expected

  • Summary: Other than not coming with the disk carraige screws (which Netgear over nighted to me immediately), the product performed flawlessly. This is my third ultra. No issues.

Have it for couple of days and already love it.

  • 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.

Great NAS Device!

  • Summary: Connect to ethernet on your LAN network for much faster transfer speeds when you need to backup large databases or files.
  • Pros: I don't know why people keep saying this is so hard to set up. Its really not that bad at all, you only need to follow the directions. Updating the OS can be a bit tricky because there's a slightly confusing cyclic instruction on the interface about powering down the device, but once you figure t...
  • Cons: I can see how if you're really not into tech (aka your son or daughter bought you an iPhone to get you up to tech speed...) this might be too much to take without assistance. Other than that, don't worry - you'll be fine.

Couldn't be happier

Randy S., Newegg
10 August 2012
  • Summary: I make a living supporting NAS (EMC Celerras) and looked at a bunch of others. Synology, Drobo (ugg), IOmega, and some of the smaller players, and this one was the best of the mid range in my opinion.
  • Pros: Easy Peasy. I don't understand why people buy the drobo when this is out there. It's raid is much more reliable, and the features are anything you could want. I can stream pictures/movies/etc to my Blu-Ray player, backup 3 Macs using TimeMachine, and not have to worry. I use this to backup my pic...
  • Cons: The GUI interface is a little kludgey. Effective, but it's not the best. Drive's including are Green. While not a deal killer by any means, they are fairly quiet. So if you are looking for the MAX speed possible, keep in mind these are 5900RPM drives.

  • Summary: I have purchased two Netgear ReadyNAS devices. The earlier one was a standard model. I got the Ultra2 this time in order to take advantage of the remote management option. The web-based interface on the standard unit would occasional "disappear" and require a reboot in order to access the admin...

Love this!

James Seckington, Amazon
26 February 2012
  • 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.

Best solution for small network backup, sile server, and media server

David R. Gillingham, Amazon
26 February 2012
  • 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.
