Limited to 2TB drives (v1 only)

Steve Bruno, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: Got one of these about a couple of years ago and its worked well. Mine is a v1 (SPARC architecture), and as such, it is limited by hardware to a maximum of 2TB drives. If you are adventurous and attempt to use 3TB drives, they are only recognized as 750GB, so you can't even use them in a pinch if...

Fantastic reliability and ease of use

Mr. S. Greadly "Xushi", Amazon
6 October 2013
  • 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.

Works okay

S. Leiphart "leiphasw", Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: This works okay as a NAS, but the user interface is pretty buggy. I just hope the inner workings are more stable than the poorly written web interface. The interface is slow and lots of things don't work correctly or hang.

Works great until you have a disk failure

Alfonzo, 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.

Hit and Miss

Eric, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased 2 of these. I have experienced some problems getting the configuration to work with one but have since after many array rebuilds worked it out. One had inoperatve drive indicator lights out of the box. All in all not bad just not the type of quality I've come to expect from Netgear.

Better when it was Infrant

Chad Everett, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this same model when it was manufactured as Infrant. I purchased that one in 2007. I shouldn't say anything, lest I jinx it, but it has been humming along steadily ever since. I purchased this Netgear version in early 2011.

Almost...but no cigar

J. Ashworth, Amazon
29 March 2012
  • Summary: The software for photos and music worked great; however, not quite as promised. It only worked on wifi as the current firmware (as of 03/2012) would not allow the iPhone and iPads to connect. Their support line was very nice, but even they were unable to get it working.

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.

Slow when using disk mirrors

bucketmouth, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: Would not recommend this product if you are planning on using disk mirrors. I purchased this to replace a HP Media server. Going back to the Media server based on performance of this unit. Write times are very slow when you set up disk mirrors on this device, I am using 7200rpm drives in this unit.

Nice Package, but very slow transfer rates

Mark Potter, Amazon
2 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to use it to store video files for my media center system, I installed four 2TB Western Digital Cavier Green Hard drives. I immediately was having performance issues, so I replaced my D-Link gigabit switch for a Netgear GS724T-300 - ProSafe® 24-port Gigabit Smart Switch which was on...
