Meh

J. Fox, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: I'm going to try to keep this short and to the point. If you look at this from the perspective of basically being a static storage target for backups, media storage, etc, its great. Fast (60-70MBs writes from my desktop over a gig switch), quiet, runs cool, etc.

Good for file storage if you're somewhat technical

Joe_L, Amazon

  • Summary: Should have listened to my friend and purchased a Synology, but got this cheap. The standard functionality works fine - if all you want it to share files with your Macs and PCs, this is pretty good - not blazingly fast, but good.

NAS documentation?

Paul E. Hines "Paul Hines", Amazon
17 March 2013
  • Summary: Documentation on the ReadyNASRND2000v2 isn't clear and even setting RAID as JBOT doesn't work; when I open the link for ReadyNASRND2000v2 it tells me there's no documentation or FAQ for this? I've talked to tech support twice. I've loaded radiator as per a prior suggestion in a review.

So much promise..

SkyeNoir, Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: We got this to replace an older RAID box we shared from our home server, hoping to reduce overall device number and space taken up. As a NAS, it does work well. All 9 PCs in the house were quickly and easily attached once it was setup, and moving data to and from it was flawless.

Difficult setup/add-ons

Noname, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: ReadyNAS Duo is my very first experience with my own server. It's designed for the home user. "Complete set-up in less than 8 clicks ," it advertises. I thought this one was the one for me. SETUP It turns out setup was more difficult than I expected. The first steps were easy.

WHS replacement? Not for everyone

Byron Watson, Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: I had been using Windows Home Server for NAS and backup functions on my home network. WHS has been discontinued by Microsoft, and it never supported a system restore function for modern PCs (serious problem). I chose ReadyNAS as my replacement.

UPDATE THE FIRMWARE IMMEDIATELY.

cheapskate, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: Everything started out fine. Unboxed it. Marvelled at it's small size. Installed my two sata disks. Installed the software on my laptop. Fired it up and began configuring. It took a couple of hours for the new drives to sync, that's to be expected.

Solid machine, software lacking

M. Thompson, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I am not a network technician, but sometimes I feel I should be to make this work to it's full capacity! Positive things first: This is a very well made device - solid metal casing that is smaller than I was expecting and looks superb.
