  • Summary: Received this unit two weeks ago, and it worked great on one drive. When adding a second drive, the sync process would go through, and then would lock the NAS unit up losing shares, etc.

Pricey, but ease of use, features, speed

Perfect home "server" for my multimedia collection

Scott Wallace, Amazon
19 February 2011
  • Summary: I cannot recommend this piece of kit enough. I looked carefully at the competition (QNAP, etc.) and the inclusion of X-RAID2 was the thing that swung me. It's been running non-stop for nearly 12 months without missing a beat.

Netgear have caused me nothing but trouble

J. Bellman, Amazon
19 February 2011

Perfect for Home backup and or RAID2 storage

  • Summary: Perfect for home backup / storage. Set-up can be complex, once it's up and running - just keep it cool and forget about it.

Bof.

smeteais, Ciao

  • Summary: Je voulais une solution centralisée de stockage multimédia et en même temps une solution de sauvegarde de mes fichiers. J'ai donc opté pour le ReadyNas Ultra 4 et l'ai doté de 2 disques durs de 2gb assemblés en Raid. J'ai encore 2 baies de disques durs libres.
  • Pros: solution riche en possibilité, et disques durs en Raid, 4 baies .
  • Cons: lenteur, complexité, manque d'explications .  Destinés à un public averti .
