It works but it seems quite slow

Summary: It was a struggle for me to install this NAS. I purchased the unit with no drives and installed two recommended 1TB drives that I am using in redundant mode. I use this NAS to store my data files as well as music and photos.
Summary: It's dead easy to set up, if you use the default configuration, and gets the job done once set up to your desired configuration. I chose this as a back up to the internal drives in my HP Pavilion laptop and the I'm running in an I'm using as my primary data drive via eSATA connection.
Summary: I suppose this review might appeal to a certain demographic. I am a professional Perl developer. I've used linux fulltime at home and work for about 6 years, but I'm no sysadmin. I can run a dev environment but don't let me configure production.
Summary: I've used my ReadyNAS Duo for about 2 and a half years with dual 500G Western Digital drives. It has worked flawlessly, but customer support has not. Pro: Once you have it working, the ReadyNAS Duo is a solid performer.
Summary: Don't use the backup software that comes with the Readynas. It's horrible. Tech support is not good either. I spent days with their tech support reps and they could not solve my issue of properly setting up the path on my Windows 7 PC to back up.
Summary: I purchased my ReadyNAS Duo a few years ago and am thrilled to say that I have had absolutely no trouble with it even though it has run 24/7 the whole time. Back when I first purchased my NAS, I had all Windows machines: one desktop and two laptops.
Summary: I bought the diskless version along with two Samsung 2TB drives. The setup was easy. Although I installed the drives together, I would recommend inserting the first drive and complete the setup. 1. Inserted both drives into NAS 2. Connected NAS to router via ethernet cable 3.
Summary: I love this little guy! Set up was a tad intermediate but not bad overall(I messed it up when installing the Hard drives, lol). Once I got this up and running it's been fantastic!! I have a mac and windows 7 environment both saving to it.
Summary: I bought this as an alternative to a home "server" as I just needed a place to consolidate my personal media, including photos, music, and videos. I bought this here empty, and immediately added two of my own 400GB drives.
Summary: I originally had a Buffalo Technology LinkStation Duo NAS device that worked well for about 1 1/2 years. However, somehow the device became corrupt and almost caused a complete loss of my data. This is when I learned a lot about the consumer NAS devices.
