Worked for a while, then died; Netgear support was terrible

Brian Wozniak, Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: Worked fine for 3 years, then the second channel died. I tried a new hard drive, still doesn't work. Opened a case with netgear, was told it is out of warranty, they can't help me unless I pay a $79 per-incident support fee. I am completely unsatisfied with this purchase and will be getting a new NAS drive from another manufacturer.

USELESS NAS - DON't BUY!

Alan G Mowbray, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this device and it was delivered from J-Tech Digital promptly in good condition. The short review is that I could never get the device to appear on my network or on my DHCP client list on my router. I installed a Western Digital RED drive (which was included on the compatibility list) and could not get it formatted. Netgear support was not helpful just giving me the same solutions over and over which never worked.

great debian server

Jeff, Amazon

  • Summary: Since this little box runs straight debian linux under the hood it's very powerful. I'm using it not only as a NAS at work to back up our machines, but also as the DHCP/DNS server, openvpn server, network monitoring device, etc. And if hacking your NAS doesn't interest you, it also performs very nicely as a stand-alone NAS with a simple web interface.

Pretty bad

R. Porter "Rich", Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: I run a software company. I can handle technically challenging installations. I got it to work for a minute, then it went down. Then it filled up, so I tried to upgrade the drives, and the new drives weren't compatible. Basically it's nearly unusable for me 1 yr after investing about $500 in setup.

Just what I needed!

Nash Moodley, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: This NAS really ties the home network nicely...including live music streaming through Logitech Squeezebox. File transfer is fast through USB3. Its like having a 4Gb hard drive in each computer in the house. Highly recommended.

Easy, small media server

MattDoc, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this a couple of years ago and have been happy with it the whole time. I have it loaded up with two 2TB drives to store all of my music, photos, and movies. The setup is pretty simple if you want it to be. There are a lot of more advanced features that you can set up, but aren't required if all you want is a basic media server that you can access on your home network. I have mine set up so that I can stream movies to my TV via my WiFi BluRay player.

Nice system to back up files on.

Dave Betnon, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I use it to backup information on several PC's. The software is rather hard to work with but it meets my needs for backing up systems. Great for anyone that has lost data they needed to retrieve.

Reliable

  • Summary: This was easy to set up with 2 each 3TB drives in raid 1. Let it do it's thing, then just copies 600+ movies onto it. Let that run overnight. Works great with my WD TV LIVE units.
