Reviews and Problems with Netgear ReadyNAS Duo RND2000
Showing 1-10 of 58
Easy, small media server
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.
Summary: So this is good product once it's up and running. If you are a novice and don't have any IT background or aren't too savvy get a time capsule from apple. I got it setup quickly but configuration is confusing in some areas especially the remote access stuff.
Summary: Got this about a year ago now and have actually taken advantage of the X-Raid feature recently. It works as advertised, mirroring or spanning (2) compatible disks. I have mine set up in a mirror configuration in case a hard drive dies.
Summary: The unit works great and I love the ability to add any USB printer, but I didn't care for the way it is supposed to be able to be added to the domain. After several hours of trying I finally gave up and just used the built in security.
Summary: I was going to buy a server but opted for the more practical NAS solution instead. I read the reviews and took the plunge knowing I've navigated countless installs before (both from the personal and business areas). I bought the ReadyNAS Duo v2 and also a pair of Baracuda 1TB disks. Setup was easy.

Summary: Very satisfied with the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo. Installed it in November 2009 and it hosts all our media (music, movies, books, etc). All iTunes libraries pull from the 1g network and AppleTVs stream content. Simultaneous streaming is never an issue.
Summary: I purchased this mainly for redundant storage, and so far it has fulfilled most of my needs. Setup: it was quite straightforward; however, I got "Corrupt root" or something like that on both the drives.
Summary: In about 10 minutes I was up and running with 2 1TB WD Green drives. Data moves onto the drives at around 11mbs which is keeping with other NAS products I've used. Everything worked as I would have expected. Great unit.
