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)
Excerpt: When I first got this box I was a little disappointed with the features as Netgear in their infinite wisdom chose to release it with a view that most people didn't want advanced functionality in a NAS box primarily aimed at the home market.
