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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
