It works but it seems quite slow

Just Jim "Just Jim", Amazon
23 September 2011
  • 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.

Nice economy NAS

M. Denis Hill "whidbeypix", Amazon
24 August 2011
  • 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.

one word: debian, two-words: apt-get

  • 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.

works fine but company support is incompetent

Jim, Amazon
31 May 2011
  • 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.

Rebate process and backup software are terrible

Martin C., Amazon
20 May 2011
  • 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.

The Little NAS That Could

Steve Tennison, Amazon
14 April 2011
  • 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.

Easy Installation, Good product

Dilbertblue "Dilbertblue", Amazon
29 March 2011
  • 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.

A Great Machine

Vigor, Amazon

  • 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.

Does what it claims and then some. No complaints!

Adam Mikolajczyk "ajm15", Amazon
26 January 2011
  • 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.

So far, so good

JB, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • 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.
