One Star

  • Summary: Hard drives have never failed. Power supply has failed twice. Getting technical support from NetGear is impossible.

Nothing but Trouble

B. Clark "B. Clark", Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I have been limping along with this thing for several years, and it has NEVER performed as I would have liked. Today I got a Kernel Panic, so it looks like I'll be buying a new system which will NOT be Netgear. Customer service is crappy (and just to get it requires hours of hoop-jumping).

WOE BE UNTO YOU IF ONE OF YOUR DISKS FAIL

M. Rogers, Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: I must say I was pleased with this product, until one disk failed. Initially I didn't know a disk had failed, the unit just failed to boot. Which is why I bough it right? In case of one disk failing, it should continue operating until I replace the disk, YEAH RIGHT!

Not Ready for Prime Time - Caution if Buying

Gadget Freak "5Ken", Amazon
26 October 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this NAS around last year and added three 2TB drives to it. It started out working fine except the fan, when the controller decides to spool up, is ridiculously NOISY, like a jet engine. So you can't place it in your office or near your media gear.

Transfer speed is complete garbage

-Aaron-, Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: This NAS is reliable, and I give it that. Transfer speed is completely unacceptable. Sub 10 MB/s for reads and writes from a single computer using it. Could be having the most recent firmware installed. This unit is populated with 4 x 2 TB Western Digital 5400 RPM drives in an X-RAID setup.

Got Unlucky

OYAH.net, Newegg
26 March 2012
  • Summary: I'm sure I got unlucky with bad hardware. 7+ days to respond to support ticket is not acceptable. I never got the hardware working. Newegg customer service and return process is awesome!!!!
  • Pros: I can't think of any pro's except the description of what the device offers is excellent.
  • Cons: On first boot the device booted up with Bad Firmware error on the LCD. Submitted a support case online (netgear.com). It took netgear 7 + days to respond to my question with links to FAQ's vs. solution. I read the FAQ's before contacting online support.

This product is not market ready

I'm Just Saying, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: This product is not market ready. 3/15/2012. It is not working as advertised. It is not functioning properly. I am experiencing repeated errors and the device has serious performance issues. Set up is a breeze, even a caveman can do it.

Garbage with LIES

Chris A., Newegg
20 January 2012
  • Pros: None. DLINK 2 bay 321 is far better.
  • Cons: Netgear lies about the awesome ability to upgrade to larger disks becuase this NAS doesn't support anything above 2TB at max. I will not be buying anymore netgear products. SCAM AND LIES!

User Review

Moreno H., Newegg
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Waste of time and source of frustration. Manufacturer lies about its capabilities by including software that is still in beta stage and is needed to recognize 2TB drives. Just as a personal remark: If the software is stable and reliable then it should be escalated to a supported stage instead of...
  • Pros: Unit has support for 4 hard drives. Rather quiet when the fans spin down to normal running speed.
  • Cons: Does not support support hard disks bigger than 1.5TB without use of beta interface software. Interface software feels clunky and offers little in the ways of controlling the volume. It is a trick to get the unit to create a volume in something other than X-RAID. None of the printed documentation...
