Summary: Set this up with two 2tb WD red drives. Super easy to setup and manage for even the newest newbie. It is missing some of the Netgear features of newer models but for most it is certainly a good system with good speeds.
Pros: Easy setup. Easy management
Cons: Not able to use some of the Netgear features available with newer models
Summary: Bought this during the boxing day sale and was not disappointed. The construction of the NAS is very clean and nice. Easy to use interface and plug and play for almost everything in it. I had to reseed the 2nd HDD and restart a number of times to finally get the system to build the RAID 1 array but after that everything else works flawlessly. Transfer speeds are very good through my Gigabit LAN.
Pros: - Price (Boxing Day sale), - I always had good dealings with Netgear devices, - Simple for NAS beginners but still packs a lot of features, - USB 3.0 ports, - Build is solid and feels very durable and the look is very pleasing as well
Cons: - No print server functionality (even though it was advertised as having it)
Pros: I am running the v1 version of this box for 2-3 years by now. Started with 1 drive with 500GB and upgraded to a 2nd drive some time later. Replication took a while but works flawlessly ever since.
Cons: Fan was loud so that I ended up replacing it. I also applied a patch which was supposed manage the fan speed based on temperature. Not sure that the patch had any real effect though.
Pros: This thing was a major pain to set up. Darn near returned the thing to our super buddies at NewEgg. If you have one, then you have likely googled around and found all the same problems you're having with it. BUT.. two solutions to make it work.

Summary: Hello, I have a Readynas Duo v2 (RND2000) device up and running from about 3 months that I’m using it for backup and DNLA server. Pros: - Very quiet; - Easy to configure; - Plugin to enable ssh, it allows to install software with linux apt-get command; - Very fast reply from netgear support; - 2x USB 3 connections Cons: - Few plugins available, most of them are paid; I had an issue accessing plugins marketplace that is not yet fixed but a workaround has been provided.
