Netgear support is not good enough
9 August 2012
Summary: I have had several Netgear products, including an NV+ which was produced just after Netgear took over Infrant. I love that NAS device and it's still going strong. Not so my Duo, version 1, was bought in 2008.
Summary: I'll make it short-don't buy this machine. Let me start by saying that I own a previous generation Netgear NAS Duo. A fine machine, and when a hard drive crashed, I lost zero data and everything worked perfectly. The old unit has somewhat bizarre software, but it works.
Summary: This is a fantastic product if you have a separate room or closet for it. It was very easy to set up and I was able to back up my files at decent speeds. I loved the media consolidation features and it seamless with both PCs and Macs.
Summary: I thought it would be easy to set up as I just wanted to store files that I could access via my net work It is only happy with certain disks and is really aimed at the photo and music files so not really a true NAS box
Summary: Pros: Unit appears well built and easy to install disks. Cons: It is not particularly straight-forward to use. Initial setup of shares was OK but getting Backup to work is very hit and miss. Error messages are not helpful.
Compared to my Synology Diskstation, the software is a poor effort

Summary: Well, i've had this item nearly a week now. I am quite impressed with the finish and quality of the actual product. It looks pretty classy. What I am less impressed with is the firmware (version at time of writing 5.3.6).
Apple users beware - Netgear support analyst says "we have only limited support for Time Machine Backup Software."

Summary: This is a preliminary review as I have only had the device for a couple of days. Despite Netgear making a big deal about the improvements that they have made to Time Machine support, I have not yet been able to make a successful Time Machine back up.
Summary: Niveau design, super, qualité superbe...Mais au niveau des perfs, une catastrophe. Ce nas manque de mémoire, c est inadmissible de vendre un produit qui pourrait être super avec seulement 256Mo.
Summary: Den lever inte alls upp till mina förhoppningar. Att stoppa in två diskar och köra dem utan raid med maximal diskmängd var otroligt bökigt att få till då det inte går att välja hur man vill ha diskarna konfigurerade, höll nog på ett par timmar med bara det.
