Pros: Seemed to have a good feature set, great price from NewEgg, fast delivery. Was interested in the TiVo capabilities.
Cons: Unfortunately, compatible with just 25 models of hard drives. I had a Seagate 1TB and 1.5TB drive I'd just purchased in December, neither of which could be used and returned root error messages and could not initialize. NetGear tech support will not help if drives are not on their list. I RMA'd to NewEgg.
Summary: My elderly NAS Raid box appearing rather slow, I bought a USB3 card for my computer and looked for a USB3 replacement NAS Raid box. I bought this gadget, and was duly impressed by the excellent design and build quality; and there it ends. I expected to hook up the gadget to my PC with a USB3 cable, whereupon Windows Backup would rapidly back up my data on schedule...
great hardware - software awful - remote access unreliable.

Summary: Solid, relaidble hardware, easy enough to set up BUT the software to set up accounts and remote mgt is simply awful. It is very slow to use and overly complex. I could live with this if it were not for the unreliability remote access for ordinary users. The people I have trialed remote file access with find it too hard to use, requiring loads of support and what's worse, remote copying of files can work for MS Excel and Powerpoint files but NOT for Word.
Summary: Be very careful updating the firmware , there is a bug in the latest update that allows the system to become unbootable should you set the timer system up to switch the unit on or off. ( it only updates part of the required system , the second part is hidden on the Netgear site ) Netgear know about it , but it is only when your unit fails and you search for a solution that you find the answer.
Summary: Nice face shame about the legs. after a week of faff i returned the READYNAFF. 2 good things - 1 (90days free) telephone support were very helpful. 2 it read my 2TB Hitachi Coolrun 7200 hard drive and Seagate 1 TB external USB2 correctly. that would have been nice if they kept talking to each other but in my macbook pro finder they kept nodding off and had to reboot both drives to reconnect them - even when hardwired through ethernet to laptop.

Summary: Beim Auspacken war ich wirklich begeistert. Das Gehäuse ist wirklich super verararbeitet. Alles aus Metall und es ist wirklich top verarbeitet. Das ist aber auch das einzig positieve an dem Gerät. Software und Geschwindigkeit sind eine einzige Katastrophe. Was nützt ein animierter, sich drehender Lüfter auf der Benutzeroberfläche, wenn an der Geschwindigkeit des Lüfters nichts geändert werden kann?
