Nice unobtrusive nas

Summary: I own two of these, purchase the second after having the first for two years with no problems. If you want to use these as backups, just buy extra drives identical to the ones in the nas and switch out the drive on the right hand side of the device.
Pros: Easy to use; replaced drives with 2TB Seagate ones, now three years in and no problems at all. Device monitors itself, emails me if it ever has a hiccup, cough or tummyache. Gives off no heat, usb ports easy to use to transfer files from thumbdrives. Good support on netgear forums.
Cons: Older versions MUST have their firmware updated, and you must update your raidar and radiator versions as well, or nothing will work correctly. Once done, everything works seamlessly and you have multi TB capacity. Netgear official support sucks. However, they have reps who monitor the support fo...
Summary: I've seen reviews that it is picky about what hard drives you put in it. I have not had it reject anything I've used with it.. WD, Seagate, Maxtor, Fuji. 250GB to 2 TB. It IS important to make sure your drive is either NEW, or that you "Delete Volume" on it in Windows disk manager, before inserting...
Cons: Documentation and OS a bit better than v1, but still not quite "easy to use".
Summary: Make sure you review the hardware compatibility list on the Netgear site before you buy it. If the drive you have is not listed, it won't work. If I can't get a 1 year old drive to work in it, how can you replace a drive in the future.
Pros: Small, quiet
Cons: Hardware compatibility list on the Netgear site is very specific, and won't run non-listed drives. Period. Support tells you this when you call.
Summary: I've had this unit in service for about 3 months. Though it is a RAID unit, I don't have anything that important to store that I require the redundancy that RAID offers. Important things get backed up to small, local external HDDs every night.
Easy to setup and offering reliable, redundant storage

Summary: I have been using the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 for several months now and I have been really impressed. As advertised, the device is small and very quiet and offers redundant storage. In the box you will find the NAS box, a CAT5e cable, additional mounting screws and the power cable.
Summary: *** Unlike so many previous Amazon reviewers, compared to whom I am a child, I will speak to the less sophisticated potential user of the Netgear ReadyNAS Duo v2 (2TB: 2 X 1TB) (RND2210), of which I am definitely one.
Summary: Good for simple task and amazing for media streaming. The ability to shut it off at night is awesome. It's amazing how quite it is after its initial turn on. During normal operation with 2 drives its near silent. It's sits behind a TV and no one even notices that its there.
Pros: Dose what it's designed to do. Simple, works very well as to stream media to my Xbox360. The iTunes streaming works "slow" but its not to bad for the price.
Cons: Premissions suck on this thing I have a user set will full and took ownership of all files and still unable to delete some items created by default admin account. Had to reconnect as admin to remove some of the files/folders. Slow when it comes to small files over wireless drops down to 400kbs......
Summary: I do incremental daily backup for Monday thru Friday of critical databases. Continuous included Backup software won't do this
Pros: Got it, plugged it in - Done! Browser interface is straight forward and informational. Ordered the extra 1TB drive at the same time. Instructions said to hook up, back up files and then install the additional RAID drive. Didn't have time to wait so I plugged it in about halfway thru the backup. N...
Cons: Print server is only for a USB printer. I have 4 network printers and it would have been nice to take the load off of a PC.
