  • Summary: I purchased ReadyNAS Ultra 6 Plus from Netgear via Amazon.com which was received on June 15th, 2012. I began to immediately experience problems with the device.

This unit is not sold with drives; however the manufacturer provides a list of compatible drives on their website. The 6 drives installed were all Seagate model ST2000DL003 from that list.

Ready NAS Ultra 6 Problems

  • Summary: I have a which has been great but wanted a NAS with more capacity and purchased the ReadyNAS Ultra 6 Plus. From the start I've had a terrible experience it. It refuses to operate with anything more than 2 hard-drives in the system. Netgear tech support are polite but I have been in regular email exchange with them for a month and the problem is no closer to resolution. I would avoid this lemon.
