Works great until you have a disk failure

Alexander Dudiven, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • Summary: I own two NV+ v1 boxes for the last three years. It's a great (but slow) product with lots of features and functional add-ons. One of my boxes is dedicated for media streaming and usually ON during the 6pm-2am timeframe. The other box is just for backups. Holding all the personal files plus serving as a TimeMachine server for Macs in the house. The biggest problem with the Readynas is that it works great until it breaks.

Great Unit - Poor Customer Service

Randall Thomas, Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I have an Infrant ReadyNAS NV that has served as a file server for my household as well as a music streaming server for my SlimDevices Squeezebox. It has been running continuously since mid-2006. The USB backup has functioned perfectly. Those who complain about the backup destroying their data on the NAS have probably confused the Source and Target when setting up the backup so that when the process kicks off, it is restoring a blank backup drive to the NAS containing...

Nice - but End of Life

Tsur, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using an NV+ for 3 1/2 years. Originally with four Seagate 500s and now with four 1.5 TB drives. It's never once failed which of course is very good. But I can't speak for its recovery abilities. Overall I'm very pleased. I do wish it were a little quicker to spin up, but that could be the drives as well as the NV+ itself. Infrant/Netgear have been good with updates (for instance Time Machine support). I do wish the throughput were faster.

Not perfect and over-sold, but good

Edmond Meinfelder, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • Summary: The ReadyNAS is a wonderful idea - abundant storage available on your network without requiring an additional computer. Additionally, this unit supports a wealth of streaming media protocols (e.g. iTunes, RTSP, etc.) and the standard services you'd want in a server (FTP, HTTP, rsync). It's as if a room full of computer geeks who love media designed this device. That said, it's not perfect. The fan is too loud.

Great Storage Solution

edgeey, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had mine for a year and I purchased another one. I had one incident with the first one I purchased. I woke up one morning to a burning smell and the NAS wouldn't start up. I feared the worst, however, later I found out it was just the power supply. I switched the drives out from the damaged unit to my second one and it worked fine, without any hassle. I am trying to return the burned out one to be replaced. The Netgear tech support has some improving to do.

Fantastic reliability and ease of use

Mr. S. Greadly "Xushi", Amazon
28 October 2010
  • Summary: I won't repeat much of what's already been said in the other reviews in other pages, but to summarise, I've been using this ReadyNAS for over 3 - 4 years now, so my review is based on proper hectic usage rather than out-of-the-box or 1 month usage. Overall, i'm very impressed with its performance and ease of use. It's solid, sturdy (bit heavy but i like)..

Be careful of the disks you purchase

Sleepless Reviewer, Amazon
18 May 2008
  • Summary: I have nothing against this device as such. It looks nice and on the surface seems to do exactly what you would want it to do. However, having been stung by purchasing a set of disks and a NAS Raid Server which did not work (not this one, and one that has now been returned to its rightful owner - the manufacturer), everyone should be aware that these devices will NOT work with any hard disk that you may purchase.

  • Summary: Haft den i några år nu! Uppgraderat ram till 1 Gb Ny tystare fläkt Gör det den ska, stabil. Aldrig haft problem med den. Men för dagens prestanda så är den ingen monster direkt. Får som max 10 mb i skriv på win 8 , men win 7 fick jag 3.5 mb Dock får du en välbyggd 4 bay Nas för detta pris med en hel del möjligheter. Kör du Android så ladda ner Es file utforskaren som man kan länka till denna..

  • Summary: Som en backup enhet i sitt grundutförande gör den sitt jobb. Pga sitt begränsade minne (256mb) som inte går att utöka slår man i taket ganska snabbt. Med rsync för Android går det att trycka över bilder och videoklipp till NAS'et. Vill du ha en flexibel NAS men en utökad funkis titta på andra produkter med mer minne och kraftfullare processorer. Men som sagt den gör sitt jobb men det är inte tillräckligt med dagens mått.
