  • Summary: Set this up with two 2tb WD red drives. Super easy to setup and manage for even the newest newbie. It is missing some of the Netgear features of newer models but for most it is certainly a good system with good speeds.
  • Pros: Easy setup. Easy management
  • Cons: Not able to use some of the Netgear features available with newer models

  • Summary: So far so good, only using this for storage and haven't tried any of the other features. It is a little finicky about HDDs so make sure to read the compatibility list and use new HDDs only.
  • Pros: Small size, decent cooling, excellent price
  • Cons: Sometimes doesn't like HDDs formatted from other machines

  • Summary: tried to throw in my used 2TB drives from my DNS-323, it seemed to work, recognized everything etc.. but couldn't read or write... couldn't rebuild, or start fresh... or atleast I couldn't figure it out.. decided to delete  all my partitions through my desktop, meant opening my PC case etc.... anyways, then started RAIDar, took the whole day for it to completely set itself up, went through a few steps, even though it seemed to be finished, it really wasn't...
  • Pros: FAST!!!! cool and quiet, attached to an APC pro 1000, it has a scheduled on and off.
  • Cons: confusing and very slow to setup....

  • Pros: Hardware is all metal and very solid! There is a pretty quiet variable speed fan in the back that cools both the electronics and the 2 HDs. I was very surprised by how small this device is -- barely larger than 2 external HDs.
  • Cons: Normal price may be a little high for home use, but very reasonable for small office use. This is not an easy replacement for external USB hard drives, but if you have a reasonable understanding of networking and NAS/RAID technology, the ReadyNAS Duo V2 is a great option!

  • Summary: Overall if this isnt on a really good sale like I got ($130) then dont bother and look for something with better add on support unless your stricly looking to just use as abackup system.
  • Pros: Much smaller than I thought it would be., Very good build material., Easy access to drives and usb., No problems finding it on my network (unlike some of the things ive read up online)
  • Cons: Its arm based so ive noticed that there is practically no add ons for this particular build, and the only ones ive found from readynasextras require paypal payment for freeware...only on the arm based system. What is with that?, Cant seem to find any torrent client thats free so if this is what ur looking for then dodge this product. I was wanting it to replace pc for torrents and streaming them to my android tvbox to watch.

  • Summary: Love the build of this item Im so sick of plastic items on my desktop that cords and cables can drag about but this is solid and stays put. Very pleasing to the eye as the size is smaller then one would think being a all metal chassis. If you really look whats all put in to the units even at full retail they are priced very well over the more disk units that look to have a very sharp price curve over this unit.
  • Pros: Outstanding construction and build quality, Network protocols, Magnetic front door
  • Cons: no dual lan for LAGG, USB 3.0 only on back (all 3 ports should be USB 3 not just 2)

  • Summary: Bought this during the boxing day sale and was not disappointed. The construction of the NAS is very clean and nice. Easy to use interface and plug and play for almost everything in it. I had to reseed the 2nd HDD and restart a number of times to finally get the system to build the RAID 1 array but after that everything else works flawlessly. Transfer speeds are very good through my Gigabit LAN.
  • Pros: - Price (Boxing Day sale), - I always had good dealings with Netgear devices, - Simple for NAS beginners but still packs a lot of features, - USB 3.0 ports, - Build is solid and feels very durable and the look is very pleasing as well
  • Cons: - No print server functionality (even though it was advertised as having it)

  • Summary: I'm kinda torn on whether to give this a 3 or 4 start review, 3 being "Satisfactory", and 4 being "Very Good-Would Purchase Again". At its price point that I purchased at, its a pretty good NAS. In saying that, next time I will probably go for something with higher memory (512MB minimum) because I'm noticing things are fairly slow, but it may be my use of it.
  • Pros: Small, Quiet, Nice Interface, Ease of use
  • Cons: Fairly Slow, low memory
